ATTORNEY MICHAEL REHM
Auburn is a doorway to history. From its beginning as a gold mining camp, Auburn has retained its historic charm by preserving houses and buildings from the Gold Rush years. The entire city is a California Historical Landmark.
History meets the present in Old Town Auburn. From the Auburn Alehouse and The Pour Choice to Carpe Vino and Old Town Pizza, residents and tourists can always find a place to quench their thirst and satisfy their appetites.
Auburn Traffic Accidents
As one of California's smaller cities, Auburn does not have many traffic accidents. In the most recent year analyzed by the Office of Traffic Safety, only 39 traffic accidents were recorded within Auburn's city limits. Only one of those accidents involved a bicycle rider.
The OTS groups California cities by size and ranks cities by traffic accident rate within each group. After adjusting for population and miles driven, the OTS ranked Auburn as having the 58th most serious traffic accident rate of the 102 cities within the same group.
Auburn Motorcycle Accidents
Of Auburn's 39 injury accidents, four involved motorcycle riders. Compared to 102 similar California cities, Auburn had the 28th worst rate of collisions involving motorcycles. Victims of motorcycle accidents often experience severe injuries. Lacking the protection provided by a car, collisions may cause motorcyclists to suffer from broken bones, joint injuries, and torn muscles. The most serious consequences of motorcycle accidents involve brain injuries, spinal damage, and crushed organs.
Auburn Pedestrian Accidents
Since pedestrians do not wear helmets, their injuries may be more serious than those inflicted on motorcycle riders when they are struck by cars. Fortunately, most pedestrian accidents occur at low speeds. High-speed pedestrian accidents are usually fatal. Five of Auburn's 39 injury accidents involved pedestrians. One of those was a minor and one was a senior citizen. Auburn had the 41st worst rate of pedestrian accidents among the 102 cities of its size that OTS ranked.
Auburn Hit-and-Run Accidents
Four Auburn injury accidents involved hit-and-run drivers. The OTS ranked Auburn as the 36th worst city in its group for hit-and-run accidents. Recovering compensation from a hit-and-run driver requires the injury victim to identify the driver. If the police are unable to do so, victims who are covered by an uninsured motorist policy will still have a source of compensation. Accident Attorney Michael Rehm always recommends that vehicle owners purchase uninsured motorist coverage so that they do not risk financial ruin by being injured by a hit-and-run or uninsured driver.
Auburn Auto Accident Lawsuits
Whether making a claim against a negligent driver or uninsured motorist coverage, accident victims in Auburn will benefit from legal advice. Auburn CA Personal Injury Attorney Michael Rehm will help accident victims protect their opportunity to obtain full compensation for their injuries. Lawsuits pertaining to Auburn traffic accidents are filed in the Superior Court for Placer County. The case will probably be assigned to a judge at the Historic Courthouse, located at 101 Maple Street in Auburn. In the most recent year for which statistics are available, 330 motor vehicle accident lawsuits were filed in Placer County. In that same year, 302 cases were resolved. Only 5 of the cases that resolved went to trial. One was dismissed and the others settled without a trial.
