San Francisco Car Accident Attorney

Standing Up for the Rights of Traffic Accident Victims in the San Francisco Area

Anyone who has driven in or around San Francisco knows that streets and traffic can be dangerous. Drivers often violate the law or fail to pay attention, which leads to a regular occurrence of car accidents. A sudden accident can happen in an instant, though it can leave you facing a long road to recovery – both from your injuries and your financial losses. 

After a crash, injured victims might have the right to seek financial compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, and other types of losses. While a monetary settlement cannot turn back time and prevent your injuries, it can help ensure that you are not responsible for the costs of someone else’s mistake. You should not hesitate to contact a San Francisco car accident attorney at Bogaards Law to discuss your rights. We help clients throughout the Bay Area and the State of California.

What Caused Your San Francisco Car Accident?

In order to know whether you are entitled to compensation, you must determine whether another person or party was responsible for causing the crash due to negligence or misconduct. Some common causes of accidents that can warrant a legal case include:

  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Following too closely
  • Other forms of aggressive driving
  • Failing to yield
  • Running traffic signals
  • Defective auto parts
  • Dangerous road hazards

Liable parties might include other drivers, companies, or both. For instance, another driver might be negligent by speeding and cannot stop in time to prevent a crash, so their insurance policy should cover your losses. If your brakes were defective and suddenly failed, causing you to crash, the brake manufacturer should be liable. If another driver caused an accident while they were on the job, both the driver and their employer could be liable. Liability is a complex issue, and our legal team knows how to identify liable parties in each case. 

Car Accident Insurance Claims

Once you decide who was responsible for your injuries, you will need to file the proper insurance claims. Many people assume that auto accident claims are straightforward and that they can handle the process themselves. However, insurance companies regularly take advantage of unrepresented parties, which can result in delays and settlements that are far below what you deserve. 

The insurance claims process can go much more smoothly if you are represented by an experienced car accident lawyer. We know how to deal with insurance companies and negotiate for the settlement amount you deserve. If necessary, we can file a lawsuit against the liable party and the insurer to seek compensation in court.
