If you got hurt in Santa Cruz, 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 Santa Cruz, here are the Santa Cruz County emergency rooms where you can get checked out 24 hours a day.

Many injury accident cases get resolved without going to court.

Other cases have to be fought through the court. In Santa Cruz, injury accident cases get filed and handled in the Civil Division of the Santa Cruz County Courts. In 1998, all Santa Cruz County Trial Courts were unified to form the Santa Cruz County Superior Court.

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

Santa Cruz auto accident and injury cases are heard in the court located in Santa Cruz. Accident and injury cases are called civil cases, unless they happen at work. If they happen at work, they're called workers compensation.
