Merced Car Accident Personal Injury Attorney






The “Gateway to Yosemite”, Merced is just 100 miles from Yosemite National Park, near Monterey Bay, the Pacific Ocean and multiple beaches to the west.

Merced is located in the San Joaquin Valley, Bear Creek, around 55 miles northwest of Fresno.

Merced is named for the Nuestra Señora de la Merced.  In English, this means “Our Lady of Mercy”.

Merced is a great place to live, but it also has some pretty dangerous intersections.

Here are some of the most accident prone intersections in Merced:

  • West Olive Avenue and R Street
  • East 23rd. Street and Glen Avenue
  • East 27th. Street and Agnes Way
  • G Street and West 21st. Street

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.

Do Most Merced Auto Accident Cases Go To Court?

Not all Merced auto accident and personal injury cases go to court.

Most Merced personal injury and auto accident cases get resolved without going to court.

Other cases have to be fought through the court.

In Merced, injury accident cases get filed and handled in the Civil Division of the Merced County Courts. In 1998, all Merced County Trial Courts were unified to form the Merced County Superior Court.

This happened because the voters approved a constitutional amendment letting Merced County judges merge their superior and municipal courts. Before then, superior court and municipal court were separate.

Currently, Merced auto accident and injury cases are heard in a courthouse located in Merced. Accident and injury cases are called civil cases, unless they happen at work. If they happen at work, they're called workers compensation.

If you got hurt in Merced, I can help. Here are some of the Merced crash types that I can handle:
