The Sacramento suburb of Carmichael is home to the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, Ancil Hoffman Park, and Chautauqua Playhouse. Nicknamed “the secret little city within a city,” Carmichael residents can choose from a variety of restaurants, shopping areas, and coffee shops while avoiding Sacramento traffic.

Unfortunately, traffic accidents occur even in the absence of traffic jams. Fair Oaks Boulevard has been the scene of multiple collisions in recent years involving cars, motorcycles, and pedestrians. Carmichael residents have also been injured while traveling on nearby Highway 50.

Carmichael California Car Accidents

Sacramento County has one of the highest traffic accident rates in California. Of California's 58 counties, the Office of Traffic Safety has ranked Sacramento County as having the seventh worst injury accident rate, after adjusting for population and miles driven.

The City of Sacramento also has a dismal ranking. The OTS compared 15 cities of comparable size. After making appropriate adjustments, the OTS determined that Sacramento had the fifth worst rate of injury accidents.

Communities near Carmichael tend to have an unusually high rate of drunk drivers. The OTS ranked Sacramento County as having the fifth worst rate of alcohol-involved traffic accidents. The City of Sacramento had the second worst ranking among cities of its size.

While the OTS does not separately rank unincorporated areas like Carmichael, its ranking of Sacramento County and the nearby city of Sacramento make clear that dangerous drivers are placing residents of Carmichael at risk.

Carmichael Motorcycle, Bicycle, and Pedestrian Accidents

Sacramento County has a poor ranking for every kind of vehicular collision. Its pedestrian accident rate caused OTS to rank the county as the 26th worst in California. Its ranking for motorcycle accidents — 19th worst of 58 counties — is even worse.

Sacramento County's statistical ranking of greatest concern involves bicycle accidents. The County ranked tenth worst among all counties and sixth worst for bicycle accidents involving children under the age of 15.

Carmichael Traffic Accident Lawsuits

Most careless drivers have insurance. Most prudent drivers have uninsured motorist insurance to protect themselves from irresponsible drivers. Unfortunately, insurance companies often resist paying full compensation for traffic accident injuries.

Lawsuits arising from traffic accidents in Carmichael are filed in nearby Sacramento. The Superior Court of Sacramento County hears those lawsuits at the Hall of Justice, located at 813 6th Street.

Insurance companies often drag their feet about settling cases. After a lawsuit is filed, however, cases tend to settle. In Sacramento County, 71% of traffic accident lawsuits are resolved within a year of filing. Within two years, 88% have resolved.

During the most recent fiscal year, about 2,000 motor vehicle accident lawsuits were filed in Sacramento County and about 1,800 were resolved. Only 64 of those resolutions involved a trial. In the vast majority of cases, accident victims and insurance companies prefer to settle the case rather than leaving their fate in the hands of strangers.
