Tens of thousands of people are seriously injured and thousands are killed in auto accidents every year in California.

I have nearly two decades of legal experience standing up for the interests of people who have been harmed due to another person’s careless actions.
How auto accidents happen
Auto accidents happen in various ways. Some of the most common causes of accidents include:
- Distracted driving, which includes texting, using navigation systems, eating and other behaviors that take a person’s eyes off the road and/or hands off the wheel
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Aggressive driving including tailgating and speeding
- Reckless driving such as weaving in and out of traffic and running stops signs and red lights
- Fatigued driving due to lack of sleep
Not all accidents are caused by drivers themselves. Sometimes defective vehicle parts, poor road conditions and other elements outside the control of drivers can lead to serious crashes. I can investigate all of the circumstances of your accident to determine what caused it and work to hold at-fault parties accountable through a personal injury lawsuit, whether that party is another driver, a parts manufacturer or a government entity responsible for maintaining safe roads.
Catastrophic injuries in motor vehicle accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can result in traumatic brain injuries, skull fractures, concussions, spinal cord damage, fractured bones, burns and scarring, organ damage, internal bleeding and other injuries. Catastrophic injuries from a car crash may require lifelong medical treatment and nursing care. Even less severe injuries can be very expensive in doctor’s bills and time lost at work. I cannot change the physical effects or emotional toll the accident took on you, but I can help you pursue a legal outcome that will relieve your financial stress now and in the future by securing an appropriate settlement or verdict.
Steps to take following an auto accident
When you have been in a car accident where there are injuries, call 911 for an ambulance and for police so they can take a report. Even if you don’t feel you were injured, be sure to see a doctor as soon as possible. Some injuries, such as internal injuries, concussions or spinal injuries, may not be immediately obvious. Medical records describing your injuries will be critical evidence for your personal injury claim. If possible based on the situation and your condition after the accident, take photographs of vehicles and the scene. If there were eyewitnesses, try to get their contact information. When you trust me with your case, I will identify and gather the evidence needed to build the strongest possible claim.
