We help injured victims hold careless drivers accountable for their actions and obtain justice in automobile collision matters. Serious bodily injury can have lasting future consequences on your life. You may be suffering from physical pain and unable to perform many of your daily activities.

Causes of Car Accidents
There are many causes of automobile accidents. Among the more common:
Distracted drivers, including drivers who are talking on the phone or texting, rubbernecking other accidents, fiddling with music, looking at the scenery, and paying attention to other passengers.
Drowsy drivers, including those who have been behind the wheel for more than two hours, those who are driving late at night or after a heavy meal, and those who have taken medicines that may cause drowsiness.
Impaired drivers, even if the driver isn’t over the legal blood-alcohol limit.
Speeding in a Car
Driving aggressively, including tailgating, failing to yield the right of way, yelling or making rude gestures at other drivers, ignoring traffic signals, and changing lanes frequently.
Weather, including rain, snow, fog, ice, sleet, and wind.
Car Accident Victim
Victims in an automobile accident may include the car’s driver, passengers, by-standers, and even the spouse of an injured person. One of the major concerns most people have when considering hiring San Diego car accident lawyers is the potential cost of representation.
Questions like: Do I have to pay up front? Or, Would I make more without an attorney being involved?
We take the stress out of the legal process by working on contingency.
This means there are absolutely no out-of-pocket fees or costs for you, we only get paid if there is a settlement, and in that situation, we take a percentage of the settlement.
All car accident victims may be able to recover money from the other driver, the owner of the car, and even the driver’s employer to pay for the damage to your car, your current and future medical bills, and any permanent injuries you may have suffered. You may even be able to get punitive damages, which are designed to punish the other driver for his or her action.
If you are contacted by the other driver’s insurance company, you do not need to provide them with any information other than your basic contact information. Nor should you feel pressured to provide them with an immediate description of your injuries. A personal injury lawyer who handles auto accident injuries can help you negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company or decide whether your case should be heard in court.
