Freeway driving is a fact of life in Northern California, sharing congested highways with huge 18-wheelers, overloaded farm trucks, distracted commuters and sleepy travelers. The combination of high speeds and multiple vehicles often results in complex crash scenes and catastrophic injuries.
The legal team at Guenard & Bozarth is well-equipped to investigate highway accidents and hold the negligent parties accountable for the harm you or loved ones have suffered. We handle personal injury and wrongful death claims in Sacramento, the San Joaquin Valley and surrounding counties.
Our experienced trial lawyers are familiar with stretches of interstate and other high-traffic corridors in Sacramento County where car accidents and truck accidents commonly occur, such as I-5 and Highway 99, I-80 and U.S. 50, Highways 12 and 16 and Twin Cities Road (State Route 104).
We direct a thorough investigation, sometimes with the help of accident reconstruction specialists, to address what happened and who can be held accountable. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about the causes and complicating factors of highway crashes such as:
- Highways slick with spilled fruit
- Collisions with trucks
- Multiple-vehicle crashes
- Rear-end collisions during rush hour
- Crossing the median or leaving the highway
- Speeding and changing lanes
- Tailgating and aggressive driving
- Distracted or impaired driving
- Construction hazards and road defects
We explore all sources of compensation — negligent drivers, transportation companies, government entities, vehicle manufacturers, uninsured motorist claims — to cover the aftermath of a serious motor vehicle crash. The partners of our firm are directly involved in every case, working closely with victims and family members to detail the extent of injuries, lasting disability, loss of income, and damages for pain and suffering.
We will come to you if you cannot travel to our offices in Elk Grove or Sacramento. We provide a free consultation, and of course there are no fees unless we recover compensation. Call us now to speak with our highway accident attorneys, or use our online form to tell us about your accident.
We will promptly investigate your car, motorcycle or truck crash to pursue maximum damages.
We fight back when legitimate claims are unfairly denied by insurance companies.
Bad faith litigation is becoming more common as the insurance industry continues to engage in dishonest practices that trample the rights of policyholders.
