Auto accidents happen every day in Northern California, and most of them are caused by negligent drivers. While many accidents result in only minor injuries, some end with catastrophic injuries and even fatalities.

Representing Clients in All Types of Cases
Our California auto accident attorneys handle cases involving a wide range of circumstances, including:
- Car accidents: If you've been seriously injured in a car wreck, you may be wondering how you will afford your medical bills, lost wages and property damage. We can help.
- Big rig/truck accidents: Tractor-trailer truck accidents often cause extremely serious injuries, which is why truckers, trucking companies and others operating commercial vehicles are held to higher legal standards.
- Motorcycle accidents: Motorcyclists have much less protection than people in cars and trucks, so it is particularly important for everyone else to look out for their safety.
- Boating accidents: If you bring a claim for a boating accident, the other side may try to claim that you assumed the risk of an injury. We are experienced at handling this issue.
- Bicycle accidents: In California, bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as all other drivers. If you've been seriously injured while riding a bicycle, call an attorney today.
- Pedestrian accidents: Drivers have a legal responsibility to take all reasonable measures to avoid collisions with pedestrians, no matter what else is going on.
- Drunk driver accidents: People who drive drunk are consciously disregarding the safety of others and can often be held liable for punitive damages.
- Distracted driver accidents: Distracted driving is negligent driving. If you or a loved one was hurt by a driver who was texting, e-mailing or otherwise distracted while driving, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries.
- Teen driver accidents: Drivers between the ages of 16 and 19 are four times more likely per mile driven to get into a crash than older drivers.
- Recreational vehicle accidents: We represent people injured in accidents caused by operator negligence or due to dangerous recreational vehicles, including ATV accidents, Jet Ski and WaveRunner accidents, and RV accidents.
- Light rail and public transportation accidents: Whether you've been hit by a public transportation vehicle or injured while riding one, you have rights.
- Uninsured and underinsured motorists: If you were injured by a hit-and-run driver or uninsured or underinsured driver, your insurance company may owe you compensation.
- Auto product defects: Our attorneys represent victims of vehicle rollovers, tire defects, seat belt defects, motorcycle equipment defects and other auto product defects.
