Lancaster Personal Injury Attorneys
Early in its history, Lancaster was little more than a whistle stop on the Southern Pacific Railroad between San Francisco and Los Angeles. It is now the largest city in the Antelope Valley, housing more than 156,000 people. Lancaster is more than just a bedroom community for the employees of nearby Edwards Air Force Base, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed, and Boeing. It is an eclectic desert city that has the Civic Musical Road, which “plays” the William Tell Overture when cars drive over the grooves cut into the asphalt.
Accidents by the Numbers
Like many other bustling cities, Lancaster can be a dangerous place to live or work. In 2008, 17 people died and 1,267 were hurt in vehicle accidents in Lancaster.
The California Highway Patrol has noted that Lancaster typically experiences more fatal traffic accidents than the California average. For example, Lancaster had 18 fatal traffic accidents in 2005, which was almost three times the state’s average that year.
Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
If you have been injured in Lancaster, Palmdale, or elsewhere in the Antelope Valley, The Reeves Law Group is prepared to use their legal experience and expertise for your case. For over a quarter of a century, our lawyers have concentrated exclusively on personal injury cases. We have a solid reputation among insurance companies and within the legal community for our diligence, integrity, and outstanding results. We are members of respected trial lawyer organizations like the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates forum.
Our team knows that unrepresented accident victims often have a difficult time trying to collect fair compensation from insurance companies. It is therefore important that you select a qualified and experienced attorney to protect your interests and maximize the compensation that you are owed. Your compensation should include damages for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Sometimes, punitive damages are awarded to punish the wrongdoer.
If someone else’s negligence or carelessness has led to the wrongful death of a loved one, you may be able to recover damages for funeral and burial expenses, as well as for the loss of companionship and income.
Time is important when choosing a personal injury attorney. Evidence that may be relevant to your claim can be lost or damaged, if it is not quickly preserved. Witnesses may not be able to recall exactly what happened weeks after the accident. It is crucial that they are interviewed right after the accident so that their memories of the incident are preserved. Moreover, if you miss the filing deadline for certain key documents, you could forfeit your rights to compensation, even if you have compelling evidence and witnesses to support your claim.
Our accident lawyers have assisted thousands of clients throughout the state, and we can assist you too. We are available at any time, seven days a week, to provide you with helpful information and guidance. If you are hurt and cannot come to our offices, we can come to your home, work, or hospital room.

At The Reeves Law Group, our attorneys and legal staff are committed to our goal of delivering fair and compassionate service to all of our clients. To make our services available to everyone, we take personal injury cases on a contingency basis. This means that you do not pay any legal fees until we win.
