Hire an Elk Grove and Sacramento County Personal Injury Attorney
Posted on 10th February, 2020
When we think of traffic, lots of accidents, and crazy highways, we tend to look south at San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Orange County. After all, lots of people move away from the big cities and flock to Sacramento County to get away from all of the madness. Couples have moved up to Elk Grove over the last 20-plus years in the hope of placing their families in safer neighborhoods. Parents love our school district and our family-based communities. Unfortunately, our little haven has witnessed massive population growth, and with it has come industry. Business drives the economy, and it also brings with it traffic and congestion. So it makes sense that we've seen a rise in the number of accidents that take place in our towns.
In today's article, we're going to discuss why an accident victim may want to hire a Sacramento County personal injury attorney. Although you do not need to retain a lawyer after an injury, it may be beneficial. Over the past few weeks, there have been multiple fatal auto accidents that have taken place in our county. NBC published a story about a crash that injured two and took the lives of another in El Dorado. They also issued an update on the passing of a Pleasant Grove High School student who was killed in an accident. These types of tragic crashes, and those involving commercial vehicles, can create multiple complications for grieving families to deal with.

Complications That Can Arise with Accident Injury Claims
There are lots of potential complications that can arise with accident injury claims. From multiple vehicles being involved in a crash to a lack of timely medical documentation, you may want to hire a Sacramento County personal injury attorney if you're looking to get compensated. See, insurance companies hire their own injury lawyers. They do so to protect their financial interests. In addition to lawyers, insurance agencies also employ adjusters and underwriters. They don't do this to make settling your claim easier but instead to find ways to deny your request.
This is where we come into play. For over 30 years, our law firm has acted as an advocate for people who have been injured due to someone else's negligence. We have fought tirelessly for the financial rights of accident victims, to the tune of winning over one hundred million dollars. Why do our accident lawyers put in so much effort? Simple, because they know firsthand how hard insurance companies fight when facing large injury settlement claims.
Accidents can and will happen. However, sometimes, accident injuries cause much more than just bumps and bruises. Here are some injury situations where you may need to hire an Elk Grove personal injury attorney.
Construction Accident Injuries
Construction accident injuries might be one of the most complicated types of injury cases. See, there is a big difference between workers' compensation and personal injury laws. Our Elk Grove injury lawyers will meet with you to explain the differences between personal injury and workman's comp and, most of all, how this relates to your injury claim. Construction site accidents cause lots of problems because you may need to file two types of lawsuits. Also, when you work in these types of dangerous fields, you may have signed some liability waivers.
Nevertheless, our Sacramento County construction accident injury lawyers know how to fight for your financial rights. Please call us right away if you or a loved one has been injured while working on a construction site or simply walking through one.
Defective Products and Product Liability Claims
Defective products and product liability claims are also extremely difficult to litigate. Usually, these types of cases involve hundreds, if not thousands, of victims. Think of the large Talcum Powder lawsuits that are in the news right now. Essentially, these types of injury lawsuits pin victims up against big corporations. That means they have lots of money to hire powerful attorneys. In addition, these types of settlements sometimes climb into the high seven figures, as multiple victims require payment.
