Hire a personal injury lawyer with a proven record of excellent results

California boasts numerous regions where natural beauty reigns supreme.  Most of these locations are tucked away and accessible only by small highways and two lane roads. Yreka, California, however, is located right off of Interstate 5, en route from Northern California to Southern Oregon.

The scenery of this region beckons motorcyclists to enjoy some “wind therapy” while taking in the gorgeous views.  Travelers journeying from Oregon to various parts of California may stop here for rest, relaxation, and to learn a bit about California gold rush history.  Nestled near the beautiful Shasta Lakes, there are plenty of water sports, camp grounds, and other activities that make this region an outdoor lover’s dream.

But as with any location with that attracts visitors, there are also inherent dangers.  Semi-truck accidents along I-5, motorcycle accidents and car wrecks are a known hazard along this stretch of road.  With so many water sports enthusiasts enjoying the Shasta Lakes, boating accidents are also unfortunately common. When an accident results in a more complicated medical issue, such as a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, finding a personal injury lawyer with experience handling catastrophic injuries can be challenging.  Medical malpractice, birth injuries, elder abuse, wrongful death, and dog bites may occur here, but because the region is less populated, they occur less often than they do in more populated areas.  Naturally, when these situations occur, the family’s primary focus is on obtaining the best medical help for the injured person.  Often it is an after thought, or a task left to an extended family member or friend, to find a personal injury attorney who can explore the liability issues in the situation.  Finding a personal injury attorney with a proven track record of success handling catastrophic injuries can be challenging.
