HANDLING CAR ACCIDENT INJURY CASES FOR THE BAY AREA SINCE 1992

At The Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C., we are committed to helping clients throughout the San Francisco Bay Area obtain monetary compensation for injuries sustained in a car accident. The direction the vehicle was traveling, the speed and impact of the vehicle and the make, year and model of the car will determine the type of injuries and compensation available. In cases where victims are killed as a result of their injuries or die on impact, grieving family members may be able to file wrongful death cases to retain compensation for pain, loss and suffering, as well as compensation for physical property damage.

BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH OUR INJURY LAW FIRM

Since 1992, our lawyers have been handling car accident injury claims for individuals throughout San Francisco. We only represent plaintiffs — people who have been seriously injured by another person’s negligent, intentional or illegal wrongdoing — not companies, hospitals, insurance providers or physicians.

Whether the incident occurred on a highway or was the result of a distracted or drunk driver, we have helped individuals and their families recover for catastrophic injuries including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Face injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Fractures
  • Paralysis

HOW WE HANDLE OUR CAR ACCIDENT CASES

When you work with our team, we will investigate to determine liability, reconstruct the accident with the help of experts, survey mapping and diagramming. We also photograph the accident scenes and consult with witnesses, police officers and highway design experts to build your case. When you work with our firm, you can be confident that your case is in good hands.

COMMON TYPES OF BAY AREA AUTO ACCIDENTS

Every time you get behind the wheel, you run the risk of being in an accident. Unfortunately, car accidents seem to be far more common than they should be. Oftentimes, the type of car accident you were involved in will affect your claim and the amount of compensation you are eligible for.

MANY TYPES OF COLLISIONS HAPPEN

Common types of car accidents include:

  • Rollover accidents
  • T-bone collisions
  • Rear-end accidents
  • Head-on collisions
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents

In drunk driving accidents, the driver who was under the influence will face much harsher legal consequences than an individual who caused a fender bender.

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? REACH OUT TO OUR FIRM FOR ANSWERS.

If you have been injured in a car accident, regardless of the type, contact our lawyers at The Law Office of Scott Righthand, P.C., for guidance. Our San Francisco car accident attorneys can carefully review your case and determine the best way to craft your claim. We will look at factors like whether or not the other driver was engaging in illegal activity at the time, such as driving under the influence or while occupied with texting and other distractions.

We can also use the type of accident to prove the fault of the other driver. For example, if a driver was driving the wrong way on a road or ran through a red light, it may result in a head-on collision. We can use this information to demonstrate their negligence and your need for compensation.
