Cases We Handle

Sevey, Donahue & Talcott are one of California’s most well-known personal injury law firms. We realize that each case, each person, and each injury is unique and that there is no single formula that can win every case. That’s why we rely on our in-depth knowledge and years of experience in dealing with a vast array of personal injury cases. Here are the most prevalent types of accident cases that we represent:

Car Accidents

As we’ve previously touched on, vehicle accidents in and around Sacramento County are a significant cause for concern. We are experts in personal injury litigation, and we’ll make sure that you get every bit of restitution that you deserve for your injuries and property damage. We’ll get you back on the road so you can get back to enjoying your life.

Motorcycle Accidents

With nearly 200 sunny days a year, and nearly 400,000 miles of paved roadways, it’s no wonder that California is a mecca for motorcycle riders. Motorcycle riding is dangerous – but not because motorcyclists are inattentive or drive recklessly. The reality is that statistically speaking, a motorcyclist is three times more likely to be injured and fourteen times more likely to suffer death than the driver of the car who hit them.

By and large, motorcyclists are careful, attentive drivers who are more than aware of all the risks surrounding them when they’re out riding. At Sevey, Donahue & Talcott, we understand the stigma surrounding motorcyclists and reckless driving, but we know the truth. If you’ve been injured while riding by the driver of a vehicle who was driving negligently, we’ll defend your right to the compensation you deserve for your damages so that you can get back to riding your motorcycle again as soon as possible.

Truck Accidents

The size and weight of a truck make them much more dangerous when they are involved in an accident. Truck accidents frequently result in catastrophic injuries needing long-term care. We at Sevey, Donahue & Talcott are well aware that most truck accidents are caused by things like driver fatigue, distracted driving, and inadequate truck maintenance. We’ll use our experience in truck accidents to settle your case or litigate to prove driver fault and help you get the damages you’re entitled to.

Wrongful Death

We realize that nothing can ever replace the loved one you’ve lost due to someone else’s negligence in an accident. What we can help you do is secure your future by helping you through the intricacies of filing a wrongful death lawsuit. We’ll help you obtain compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, and loss of your loved one’s future income, companionship, support, and protection. At a time when you feel the most overwhelmed, let the team at Sevey, Donahue & Talcott help lessen your burden.

These are only a few of the types of accidents that we represent. Other areas include:
