Commitment and Compassion from Military Background

Before becoming an attorney, Russ Wyatt joined the United States Marine Corps. He was a member of the invasion force that stormed Baghdad in 2003, reached the rank of Sergeant and was awarded a combat action ribbon. Russ’ military background taught him the importance of discipline and commitment in everything he does. Most importantly it taught him to show compassion towards people who sustained injuries.

The firm is committed to taking cases on contingency. That means that there is no upfront cost to you. From the moment you first contact the attorneys until the time you receive your settlement, there are no legal fees. The firm makes itself available for free consultations at either one of the offices located in Sacramento or Cameron Park. The attorneys know that their clients who are injured have a hard time coming to the office, so by appointment, they also meet with clients at locations that are convenient to them.

No Medical Insurance, No Problem

If you are injured, the most important priority is to get you back on your feet. Not everybody has medical insurance or insurance that will pay for all the treatment they need. We work with doctors that take patients on lien. That means that they will treat you and postpone their payment until you receive your settlement.

Yolo County Car Accident Attorney

Injured in a Yolo County Car Accident? The Wyatt Law Corp Can Help!

Yolo County may be a predominantly agricultural region as compared with more urban areas like Sacramento, but this does not mean that the area is insulated from traffic crashes and other problems that larger counties experience. The California Office of Traffic Safety maintains records regarding traffic collisions throughout the state. In 2014 alone and despite having a population of only slightly more than the 200,000 residents, 920 residents were either injured or killed in traffic collisions. Of these, nearly 180 were injured or killed as the result of someone who was under the influence of alcohol or who had been drinking prior to getting behind the wheel.

Regardless of the cause of your Yolo County car wreck, when you or your loved one are injured in such a collision and another person is responsible for doing so attorney Russ Wyatt is ready to step in on your behalf to protect your rights and help you obtain compensation for your losses.

What are Some of the Causes of Yolo County Car Crashes?

Many car crashes that occur in Yolo County are not truly unavoidable “accidents” but instead are the result of careless or negligent decisions made by one or more drivers. Thus, many of the car crashes that occur in Yolo County could be avoided if drivers simply chose to exercise greater care and concern while driving.

Some of the more common reasons why car accident do occur in Yolo County include:

  • Distracted driving: With smartphones playing an ever-increasingly significant role in many people’s lives, the temptation to check one’s social media, respond to a text message, or read one’s e-mails while driving is great. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, nearly 80 percent of car wrecks in California involve some form of driver distraction, will cellphone usage being one of the leading sources of distractions.
  • Driving under the influence: Most people are aware that drinking alcohol impairs a driver’s ability to safely operate a car, but illegal drugs, prescription medications, and even some over-the-counter medications can have a similar effect as well. Drivers who choose to get behind the wheel after having consumed any such substance put themselves and others on the road at risk.
  • Aggressive driving: Even though Yolo County does not see the traffic jams that other parts of the state experience, aggressive driving behaviors such as speeding, failing to yield the right of way, and not driving in a responsible manner given the prevailing road and traffic collisions can still be seen in Yolo County.

Any of these or other behaviors that result in a car crash in which you or your loved one are injured may be sufficient to hold the driver responsible for the injuries, expenses, and losses you suffer.

What Steps are Involved in Recovering Compensation Following a Yolo County Car Accident?

The legal recovery process begins with an investigation into your case to determine who the at-fault parties are in your case and the amount of monetary damages you will need in order to be fully compensated. Once this information is obtained, your Yolo County car crash lawyer will file the appropriate paperwork in order to initiate your lawsuit. Your lawsuit commences when your complaint or petition is filed with the court setting forth the reasons you believe you are entitled to compensation under the law and a copy of this document is served (that is, delivered) on the at-fault party (the “defendant”).  The defendant will have an opportunity to respond in writing to your complaint and raise any claims he or she believes he or she may have against you.

From here, legal motions may be filed to have the case dismissed if there is a defect or problem with your complaint or petition. Otherwise, the case proceeds to the discovery phase. During this period in your case’s life, you and the defendant will exchange information regarding the witnesses you intend to call at trial as well as the evidence you have in your possession that supports your claims. California Code of Civil Procedure Section 2016.030 suggests that this discovery process is meant to be accomplished informally if possible. Depending on the nature of your car wreck, discovery may take months or even years to accomplish.

Once discovery is completed, if the essential facts of the case are not controverted and it is clear one party or the other is entitled to a judgment in their favor, the case may be resolved without ever going to trial. Otherwise, the case will be set for trial before a judge or jury in the Yolo County Superior Court at 1000 Main Street, Woodland, California. After hearing your evidence and witnesses (as well as any the defendant may present), if the judge or jury believes it is more likely true than not that the defendant’s careless acts caused you injury, you will be able to recover compensation. (Note that you may be able to recover compensation even if you are partly to blame for the accident).

When is the Best Time to Speak with a Yolo County Car Wreck Lawyer?

California Code of Civil Procedure 335.1 is known as a statute of limitations in that it sets forth the amount of time that a car crash victim has in which to file a case. This particular section gives Yolo County car wreck victims two years from the date of their crash within which to file a claim for compensation. Given the number and complexity of tasks that must be completed before a case can be filed – and knowing that important evidence and witnesses can vanish if too much time elapses – it is best to speak with an experienced and knowledgeable Yolo County car accident attorney as soon as possible.
