Bayside is an unincorporated community in Humboldt County, California. It is located 2.25 miles (3.6 km) south-southeast of Arcata, at an elevation of 33 feet (10 m). The ZIP Code is 95524. Bayside is located in the northern part of the state, along the coast, in Humboldt County. Though Bayside has its own post office, it was partially annexed into the City of Arcata. It is policed by Arcata police and the county sheriff. Bayside is home to many middle class families, mostly Caucasian. Most parents work away from the home, some at the nearby Humboldt State University or in the timber industry that exists in Northern California. Many children in Bayside attend Jacoby Creek Elementary School, a charter elementary school in the area. Bayside is surrounded by pastures and second growth forests and dotted with aging Victorian houses. The Bayside Grange (built 1941), a historical meeting hall for farmers in Bayside, is still used as an all-purpose hall for the community. Right across the street, is the original Jacoby Creek School building. Bayside is also home to Hank's Coffee Shop across the street from Jacoby Creek School. As you go up Jacoby Creek Road, the first left is now known as Baywood Heights, a private road and development. This used to be an old dirt logging road.

Also, Bayside High School is where the characters of That's So Raven go to school. The first people to settle in Bayside were members of the Quear family. (There is a large, dilapidated book in the Jacoby Creek Elementary School library that is an excellent history of the area, not just Bayside, and it contains more detailed facts. ) One of the main roads in Bayside is Golf Course Road, where a full size golf course greets you at the top after a beautiful walk. The first post office at Bayside opened in 1886.

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury includes injuries to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. If the negligence of another person can be proved, the person who is injured may be entitled to monetary compensation from that person who was negligent. Attorneys often represent clients on a contingency basis, in which the attorneys fee is a percentage of the compensation the plaintiff receives, payable when the case is resolved. Cases involving people who have suffered an injury for which someone else (an individual or business) may be legally liable -- may include injuries caused by car accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall incidents, and emotional distress.
