Car and Truck (Vehicular) Accidents

There are many different types of personal injury cases, but the ones that are most common are car or truck accidents. As the operator of a motor vehicle on the road, a driver has a legal duty to drive safely and follow all traffic laws. Unfortunately, not everyone does.

A negligent driver can be held legally and financially responsible for injuries caused to others and consequently sued in a court of law. In the majority of cases, the responsible party’s insurance company will offer a settlement amount to pay for the damages to the car and any injuries suffered.

However, the insurance company does not have your best interest in mind and often offer to settle for much less than you deserve. Our skilled personal injury lawyers can help to ensure that you receive a proper and acceptable settlement or assist you if you need to pursue a lawsuit against the responsible party in a court of law.

Texting while driving has become a leading cause of vehicular accidents in recent years. It is a known fact that the use of mobile devices, such as cell phones, while driving can distract a driver and lead to a serious accident.

It is important to note, at the time of the accident, whether the negligent party may have been using his or her cell phone immediately before the accident. Although the police will frequently ask the parties involved in an accident if they were using any electronic devices before the accident occurred, this may not always be the case. This piece of information can be of vital importance and is just one of many facts that an experienced personal injury attorney will investigate to help establish responsibility in your case.

With the help of Panah Law Firm and its San Francisco Bay Area car and truck accident lawyers, you stand a very good chance of recovering the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Our firm has years of experience investigating personal injuries, including car and truck accidents.

After an accident, time is of the essence. It is very important to gather a list of evidence such as defendant driver's valid driver license and insurance information, witnesses' names and contact information, while police take witnesses' statements, prepare police accident reports, acquire defendant driver's cell phone records, and blood alcohol content (BAC) tests to prove who is at fault. Such pieces of evidence can assist in establishing that the driver's negligent conducts or the driver’s condition made it difficult or impossible to avoid an accident.

To gather and investigate all this information, you are going to need an experienced personal injury attorney.

Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall injuries are the second most common type of personal injury cases. These types of injuries occur when a person is hurt by falling, slipping or tripping due to hazardous conditions.

Hazardous conditions may include unsound, slippery or wet hallway floors,uneven walkways, and so on. Whenever you are passing through such areas, you will sometimes notice warning signs posted by responsible parties, warning or cautioning people about wet floors and other hazards.

However, if the responsible party fails to take the necessary measures,like posting warning signs and/or making the premises safe, they could be held legally responsible in the event that a customer or a passerby suffers an injury by slipping, tripping or falling.

Dog Bites

Almost daily, over 1,000 people in the United States require emergency care for a dog bite injury. Dog bites amount to one of the highest per capita injuries in America. In fact, one out of every 5 bites is serious enough to require emergency medical attention. Each year, dog bites cause an estimated 368,000 victims to visit hospital emergency rooms.

The majority of dog bites are caused by negligent owners who fail to properly control their pets. In such situations, dog attacks become a greater risk, especially when the dog is in a position where it feels that it needs to protect its owner or its territory.

Negligent behavior by pet owners contribute to nearly 4.5 million dog bites per year in the United States, with many such victims requiring hospital emergency room care. Unfortunately, about 45 victims a year end up dying from their injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents

Like many personal injury cases, a motorcycle accident can change your life forever. In general, people share some level of bias toward motorcyclists and when hearing of a motorcycle accident, they immediately assume it was the fault of the person on the motorcycle.

This isn’t surprising, considering the way the media and movies seem to portray motorcycle riders as reckless, selfish, and careless drivers that speed and dodge in and out of traffic. Insurance companies understand this common misconception and will use it in court against motorcyclists. In an effort to deny cyclist just compensation, insurance companies often try to exploit this misconception and use it to limit their fair recovery or simply attempt to completely deny the claim.

At Panah Law Firm, we understand the challenges faced by victims of motorcycle accidents. We understand the discrimination you suffer and are here to protect your rights. The reality is that motorcycle riders are generally the safest drivers on the road and more often than not, in an accident, the fault lies with the other driver.

Statistics show that approximately 70% of all motorcycle accidents involve collisions with a passenger automobile where the car’s driver was at fault. In more than two-thirds of all motorcycle accidents, the automobile driver violated the bikers right-of-way in one or more ways.

Our San Francisco Bay Area motorcycle accident attorneys are ready to help you when you have been hurt during a motorcycling accident. An experienced San Francisco Bay Area motorcycle accident personal injury lawyer will offer you the expertise needed to give you the advantage in your case.

At the Panah Law Firm, we are devoted to helping motorcycle accident victims seek the legal action necessary to obtain justice and receive the maximum financial restitution available.

Obtaining Compensation for your Soft Tissue Injuries

In many personal injury cases victims often suffer from “soft tissue” injuries. Soft tissue injuries are injuries that affect the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, which is not as easy to recognize as broken or fractured bones. However, just like broken or fractured bones,torn ligaments and muscles or a sprained joint can impair your ability function normally. Soft tissue injuries can significantly hinder your ability to work or move freely for a long period of time and cause long-term adverse physical problems. This is especially true if they are not cared for and properly treated by a trained medical professional with an eye towards obtaining a full recovery.

Any proper recovery requires painful and time-consuming rehabilitation, which often necessitates a significant amount of time away from work and substantial medical expenses. Your inability to work can also cause you further financial problems that may spiral out of control, leaving you in a much worse position than you were before.

You should not have to take on this financial and emotional burden, in addition to the physical pain that you already suffer, especially since your injuries weren’t your fault. We can help to ensure that the responsible party pays for their actions.

If you have suffered from a soft tissue or any other type of physical injury as a result of a non-fault accident, Panah Law Firm, a San Francisco Bay Area personal injury law firm can review your case and advise you of your legal options. It is very important for you to consult with an attorney so that you can obtain just compensation and have your rights properly protected.

An insurance adjuster may contact you to discuss your case and they may even offer you a settlement. Remember that the insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible and they have developed tactics that often help them to get away with this. Bringing a legal professional on board ensures that your rights and best interests are represented in the negotiation and litigation process.
