Do Most Alameda Auto Accident Cases Go To Court?

Many injury accident cases get resolved without going to court. Other cases have to be fought through the court. In Alameda, injury accident cases get filed and handled in the Civil Division of the Alameda County Courts. In 1998, all Alameda County Trial Courts were unified to form the Alameda County Superior Court. This happened because the voters approved a constitutional amendment letting Alameda County judges merge their superior and municipal courts. Before then, superior court and municipal court were separate.

Currently, Alameda auto accident and injury cases are heard in courts located in Oakland. Accident and injury cases are called civil cases, unless they happen at work. If they happen at work, they're called workers compensation. The only workers compensation cases that I handle are those that result in the death of the worker. Those cases are called death benefits cases. If you are going to fight your Alameda accident case in court, your civil case will be heard at this courthouse:

René C. Davidson Courthouse
1225 Fallon Street
Oakland, CA 94612-4278
Phone: (510) 891-6000
