Causes of San Francisco Car Accidents
Establishing Fault in a Car Accident Claim in San Francisco
Determining what caused your car accident is important. When you file your insurance claim and deal with your San Francisco car accident case, establishing who caused the accident and therefore who should be held responsible will be of the utmost importance. Most car accidents are caused due to driver error or negligence of some kind. However, in some cases a car accident may be caused due to hazardous road or weather conditions, or perhaps due to a defective auto part. Regardless of the particular circumstances of your accident, it will be necessary to determine the cause in order to properly file your claim and seek the financial compensation you need.
Our law firm helps clients injured in car accidents throughout the San Francisco area, regardless of the cause. We handle cases that involve driver distraction, such as talking on the phone, texting, talking to a passenger, adjusting the radio, eating, drinking, applying makeup, and more. We are also skilled in handling cases that involve negligence, such as speeding, reckless driving, drunk driving or violating a traffic law. Although these cases are less common, our team also assists victims of car accidents caused by defective auto parts and dangerous roadways.
No matter what caused your accident, we can work to determine exactly who should be held accountable, thus assisting you in recovering the financial compensation you deserve.
