California Highway Accident Lawyer
San Francisco Area Auto Collision Attorney
Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, drivers and passengers in trucks and cars — all travelers and recreational users are familiar with the danger of accidents on California's highways, county roads, and city streets. When a street or highway accident occurs, the first goal of every emergency worker or law enforcement officer at the scene is to see that those injured get first aid. The second goal is to open the street or highway to traffic again as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, preserving evidence of factors contributing to the collision or rollover is a weak third goal. For that reason, if you or a member of your family has sustained a serious auto accident injury it is extremely important to discuss your situation with a lawyer who has extensive experience in complex car accident claims, as soon as possible.
At our San Francisco Bay Area firm, attorney Reuben J. Donig employs a variety of strategies to identify all parties responsible for a client's injuries:
- If the injuries were the result of an 18-wheeler accident the investigation by federal and state transportation safety boards will provide valuable information.
- If our client was injured as a result of a bicycle or pedestrian accident it may be more important to identify eyewitnesses and take their statements.
- When determining factors leading to a motorcycle accident, our lawyer will enlist the aid of an accident reconstructionist to perform scientific analyses of the evidence.
- If a street defect, such as a dangerous guardrail or missing signage caused the car accident, we are prepared to help a client in a claim against the government agency responsible for maintaining the street or highway, including a city (Oakland, Palo Alto, Fremont, Redwood City, and other communities in the Bay Area), a county (Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and San Francisco counties), or the state of California.
