Holding the Responsible Accountable
Accident victims pay a steep financial, emotional, and physical price. Every aspect of their life can be affected. They might not be able to go to work, pick up their kids from school, or even button their own shirts.
If you are in an accident at the fault of someone else, the responsible party needs to be held accountable.
At The Law Office of Caroline J. Nasseri, we have aggressively advocated for clients for 35 years. All personal injury cases in Sacramento, whether simple or complex, get the full force of our experience and dedication. We fight for every client to receive the maximum compensation available.
Accidents Happen on and Off Sacramento Roadways
Accidents happen anywhere at any time. Our homes and workplaces are common locations. Of course, with all the vehicles we have in this state, our roadways can be dangerous.
When evaluating Sacramento to other similarly sized California cities, the Capital City has more injuries and fatalities than the average. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), Sacramento ranks fourth among 15 other cities with a population of 250,000 or more.
In 2019, 3751 people were injured or killed in an accident on Sacramento roads. OTS further breaks down that statistic as follows:
- Motorcycles: 116 injuries and deaths
- Pedestrians: 263 injuries and deaths
- Bicyclists: 224 injuries and deaths
Of the total victims killed or injured, 340 were in a hit and run. Alcohol was involved in 362 of the accidents and speed was a factor in 652.
Our experienced attorney, Caroline J. Nasseri, represents clients injured in cases such as these:

Not Settling for What the Insurance Company Offers
With her previous experience as an associate attorney for insurance defense cases, Attorney Nasseri has inside knowledge of the tactics that insurance companies use to minimize their exposure. Your best interests are not theirs. She brings her 35 years of legal experience to bear in every personal injury case she takes.
Compensatory and Punitive Damages
California provides the opportunity for accident victims to recover compensatory and punitive damages, and the state sets no maximum caps (except in medical malpractice cases). The most common awards are compensatory, which attempt to compensate the victim for their loss and injuries. Most of these damages can be tied to specific costs, but some are best argued by a skilled Sacramento personal injury lawyer.
Compensatory damages can be economic (specific dollar amount assigned) and non-economic:
- Lost Wages
- Hospital Bills
- Prescription Costs
- Occupational Therapy Bills
- Physical Therapy Bills
- Future Medical Bills
- Property Damage
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Consortium
- Emotional Distress
Punitive damages are only awarded when the responsible party acted with malicious and reckless behavior. This is a higher bar to prove, but these awards punish the responsible party and discourage such behavior from happening again.
Legal Counsel for Sacramento Personal Injury Cases
California requires that personal injury lawsuits be filed within two years of the date of the accident. Exceptions to that rule are few. That’s why it is imperative to not wait to seek legal help.
Don’t let the presumed cost of legal counsel dissuade you. At the Law Offices of Caroline J. Nasseri, we take cases on a contingency basis. You pay zero to us unless we help you collect an award. If we do, we are paid a fair percentage of any settlement winnings.
We offer a free case evaluation. If you believe you have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit, contact us online or call (408) 912-2217.
