Car Accidents

Our firm protects the rights of injured drivers by holding negligent parties accountable for causing undue hardship. Many of Rocklin’s arterial roads have top speeds of 55 mph, which is dangerous if your vehicle is driving the speed limit and is hit by another going equally fast.

Car accidents we take include:

  • Single car accidents
  • Multi-car pile-ups
  • Farming implement accidents
  • Commercial vehicle accidents
  • Food delivery vehicle accidents
  • Uber accidents
  • Lyft accidents
  • Autonomous vehicle accidents

Anyone injured in car accidents can call a skilled Rocklin personal injury attorney from our firm immediately to get help with their case.

Truck Accidents

Dedicated truck accident lawyers from Sevey, Donahue & Talcott LLP are dedicated to holding negligent truck drivers accountable for their actions. Distracted or reckless driving accidents account for many injuries and casualties in California, many of which could be avoided if truck drivers followed laws.

Our firm will gather evidence, recreate the accident scene if necessary, discuss the incident with the insurers involved, and negotiate fair and equitable settlements for injured persons. No truck accident is too large for our dynamic firm, and we’ll fight to earn your trust when injured.

Personal Injury Lawyers in Rocklin

Finding an attorney able to handle your personal injury case doesn’t have to be difficult. As your Rocklin personal injury attorneys, we promise to:

  • Assess your situation and what possible civil action can be taken;
  • Help you understand California’s complex tort laws;
  • Never charge for consultations related to personal injury accidents;
  • Provide you with exceptional representation start to finish; and
  • Settle your case favorably, or you’ll pay us nothing.

Choose your personal injury firm wisely, and you’ll reap the rewards only superior representation can provide.

Proving negligence in a personal injury case takes multiple steps. For starters, we must prove there was a duty of care owed to you. Then, we must provide substantial evidence that someone breached their duty through negligent means. Next, we must prove causation, a technical way of saying that the defendant’s duty of care directly led to your injuries. Finally, we must prove that these injuries caused measurable damages which deserve compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions

We hear many of the same questions from anxious and overwhelmed victims. To try to alleviate some of this stress before you even make an appointment with us, here are the answers to some of the questions we hear the most.

Does California have a time frame to file personal injury claims?

Victims who have been injured by any means under personal injury laws may file civil action within two (2) years of the underlying accident.

What can I do if I’m injured at work in Rocklin?

You may be eligible for workers’ compensation, depending on the circumstances of your injury. If you’ve been unable to work and need help filing your claim, or have additional claims against your employer, you should speak with a Rocklin personal injury attorney.

Do you handle swimming pool accidents?

Accidents that happened at swimming pools by no fault of your own fall under premises liability law. At Sevey, Donahue & Talcott, we can handle swimming pool cases arising from accidents at public pools, hotel pools, water parks, and even private pools. We can even handle cases where a young child trespassed on someone’s property and fell into an unprotected pool.

Do pedestrians have the right to file civil action if hit?

If you were struck while having the right of way, were injured when a vehicle drove onto the sidewalk, or incurred any other pedestrian-related accident injuries, you have options. Our firm has handled many suits where innocent bystanders were knocked down by cars, trucks, and commercial vehicles.

Can I take my own car accident case to court?

There are multiple parties to every car accident claim, including your insurer, the negligent party’s insurer, attorneys for everyone, and in some cases third-parties. With so much on the line, you really cannot afford to leave money at the negotiation table, which many victims do without knowing. For that reason alone, we urge anyone injured to retain competent counsel to fight for compensation, regardless of how straightforward your case may seem.

What exactly does “wrongful death” mean?

Wrongful death means someone died either during the commission of another’s criminal behavior, by someone’s negligence, or by any means which couldn’t be avoided by an individual in similar circumstances. Through a wrongful death claim, family members may recover compensation for funeral expenses, burial expenses, loss of support, and other damages.

How long do personal injury cases take to settle?

All injury cases are unique. Each person’s specific claim will take different paths, some which settle well before court and others that are decided by juries. With evidence, investigation, court hearings, discussions, and mounds of paperwork that your case requires, it’s difficult to put an exact time frame on your settlement. Our firm will maintain contact with you as your case progresses.
