LODI ACCIDENT PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
Like so many Central Valley communities, Lodi has a rich history.
Lodi was established in 1869 when the Central Pacific Railroad laid its tracks in this pioneer town, over wild, oak-studded brush land near the Mokelumne River.
Lodi's agricultural economy developed around its train stop, and continued to grow.
Lodi was first known for grain and watermelons in the late 1800s. In fact, during that time, Lodi was the watermelon growing capital of the world.
Later, Lodi became known for Tokay grapes, Zinfandel grapes and then for its fine wine.
A city rich in local history. Lodi still enjoys many historical sites that locals and visitors continue to appreciate.
Now, Lodi's slogan is is “Livable, Lovable, Lodi” - and it's true!
When it comes to driving in Lodi, UC Berkeley's Transportation Injury Mapping System reveals Lodi's numbers from January 2015 to December 2020.
Even when you're careful, and try to follow all the rules, when someone else is careless, you can end up hurt in a Lodi auto accident.

CAUSES OF LODI CRASHES
Lodi drivers may tend to follow to fail to yield the right of way to other drivers -
this could be why 23.52% of Lodi crashes have to do with automobile right of way.
TYPES OF LODI CRASHES
Right before a Lodi crash, someone usually breaks a traffic law.
In Lodi, more than almost 1 in 3 crashes are a broadside.
This makes sense, because the number one Lodi crash cause is someone failing to yield the right of way.
Compare Lodi's top crash types to nearby Stockton, where 40.23% of the crashes are also broadsides, and 25.10% are rear-enders.
Type of Lodi Crash
If you got hurt in Lodi, keep in mind that it's important to hire a good attorney from the start.
The insurance adjuster is not your friend - even your own insurance company will look for the cheapest way to get rid of your claim.
After you get injured, it's important to seek medical care right away.
Some injuries can only be found by a doctor. Other injuries get worse if they don't get treated on time.
If you suffered personal injuries in Lodi, here are the San Joaquin County emergency rooms where you can get checked out 24 hours a day. The list has many San Joaquin County hospitals; please scroll down to find Lodi.
Did you know that many injury accident cases get resolved without ever going to court? Other cases have to be fought through the court.
In Lodi, injury accident cases get filed and handled in the Civil Division of the San Joaquin County Courts. In 1998, all San Joaquin County Trial Courts were unified to form the San Joaquin County Superior Court.
This happened because the voters approved a constitutional amendment letting San Joaquin County judges merge their superior and municipal courts. Before then, superior court and municipal court were separate.
Currently, Lodi auto accident and injury cases are heard in Stockton. Accident and injury cases are called civil cases, unless they happen at work. If they happen at work, they're called workers compensation.
