Woodland Personal Injury Attorneys

If you or a loved one were hurt in an accident in Woodland, CA, give us a call. Not all accidents lead to an insurance claim or lawsuit.

But if someone else caused the accident and your injuries, then you probably have a claim. Talking with a Woodland personal injury attorney is the best way to get started.

Wells Call offers free initial consultations. It costs you nothing to set up an appointment where you can tell us what happened. We’ll listen, ask a few questions, and recommend what we think is best. 

You shouldn’t have to deal with the consequences of a person’s careless or reckless actions on your own. We can help you get the most from filing a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company. 

If it’s necessary, we can file your personal injury lawsuit. You don’t have to be afraid of litigation. We handle the paperwork, communicate with the opposing party, and appear in court. 

Learn more about how we can help you by contacting us online or call 707-267-7380. 

We work on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay a retainer or hourly fees. Instead, we handle the upfront costs, and then you pay us a percentage of your personal injury settlement. This structure means anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer in Woodland can get one. 

Common Woodland, CA Accidents

Woodland is a small city of about 60,000 people just 15 miles away from Sacramento.

Its economy is largely based on agriculture and transportation, and Yolo County is one of the largest crop producers in all of California.

Several retailers have built and staffed distribution centers in or near Woodland, too. Woodland has a small-town feel but can’t escape the accidents and injuries that are prevalent across the state and country.

Some of the most common accidents our personal injury lawyers in Woodland take on include: 

  • Car Accidents
  • Drunk Driving Crashes
  • Uber and Lyft Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Unsafe Property Accidents
  • Slip and Falls
  • Dog Bites
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Wrongful Deaths 

Your first priority after an accident should be getting medical help. Don’t hesitate to go to Woodland Memorial Hospital immediately after the accident.

We understand you might not have gone right away. If your pain or other symptoms get worse in the days after the accident, go to the emergency room.

Once you’ve been examined, diagnosed, and begun treatment, give us a call. It’s best to figure out if you have a legal claim right away. 

We Are Here to Answer Your Questions

Our attorneys have decades of combined experience working on accident claims across the state. We know that most people who have been hurt aren’t sure about what to do. This is a new situation, and you might not know your rights and options. 

Whether you were hurt in a car crash, or a neighbor’s dog attacked your daughter, we are here to answer your questions. Whatever the situation, we will explain your rights under California personal injury law.

If you have a legal claim, we’ll discuss what to do next, including hiring us to move forward with an insurance claim or lawsuit.

We care about our clients’ well-being and the outcomes of their cases. When someone else causes a serious accident, the cost should be their responsibility, not yours.

That is why we aggressively pursue maximum settlements and court awards. We want you to come out of this difficult situation in the best position possible.

How Wells Call Will Help After an Accident

Before you give us a call, you might want to know more about how we can help you after a serious accident. 

Investigating and Assessing Liability

You need to find out what caused the accident, who was at fault, and who is legally responsible for your injuries—these could be two different parties. These facts aren’t always straightforward, which is why we recommend you have a lawyer review the evidence and determine liability. 

Helping with Medical Treatment and Bills

We can connect you with top medical specialists in California and help you tackle your medical bills. After you use your health insurance, you still might receive large bills. We can negotiate the amounts you owe with your providers and find ways to avoid collections if you’re unable to pay right away. 

Calculating the Value of Your Damages

It’s important that we determine how much your claim is worth. This includes both the financial consequences of the accident and your non-economic injuries, like pain and suffering. The former is a straightforward calculation. The latter requires research and developing evidence that proves the severity of your injury. 

Negotiating with an Insurer

Most personal injury cases end with a settlement, but that doesn’t mean you should work with an insurer yourself. The insurance company knows the law, its policy, and its internal procedures better than you. But we level the playing field. We have years of experience negotiating with major insurers across California.  

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Some accident and injury victims in Woodland benefit from filing a lawsuit. It shows the insurer that we are serious, and it gives us the chance to use discovery to get more information about what happened and why.

Discovery is a part of litigation where each side can demand answers and documents from the other. Just because we recommend filing a lawsuit doesn’t mean your case will go to trial.

Resolving Your Claim

Our goal is simple: To win you the best outcome possible through an insurance settlement or a court award. Since 1984, we have won over $500 million for our clients and are part of the Million Dollar Advocates Forums.

While we can’t guarantee your case is worth a million dollars or more, we can promise to fight for the maximum compensation possible.

Personal Injury Damages in California

We will talk with you about the types of compensation California law might entitle you to after an accident. 

Personal injury damages include: 

  • Medical Expenses
  • Property Damages
  • Other Out-of-Pocket Expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Distress
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Reduced Earning Potential
  • Reduced Quality of Life
  • Loss of Consortium 

Not every case will include each of these factors, and how much each category is worth varies significantly.

We will collect evidence regarding your physical, emotional, and financial injuries, which we will use to determine the value of your claim. This amount will guide our negotiations with the insurer.

We Have Experience with All Types of Injuries
