California Attorneys for Accident Victims
Car accidents are the most common type of injury claim. Your decision to call a personal injury lawyer after an accident is a crucial one since your attorney’s experience and commitment may well determine your ability to deal with disabling injuries and the compensation you need to pay your bills, daily living expenses and to focus on your best possible recovery.
Studies consistently demonstrate that retaining an injury lawyer results in substantially more compensation for claimants than victims who represent themselves, even considering legal fees. We take all injury cases on a contingency basis, meaning you have no out-of-pocket costs. We only get paid when your case is resolved.
If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a car accident–or a fatal auto accident that took the life of a spouse, parent or child–contact us now. We provide a free, no-obligation evaluation of your legal options and an honest assessment of how best to proceed.
Our highly respected personal injury law firm and team of legal professionals take action on all types of car accident cases throughout California. Whether your car accident resulted in a traumatic brain injury, catastrophic spinal or back injury, or a moderate injury that still requires costly medical treatment, we will welcome your call and give it the attention any injury deserves. Many injuries from car accidents are relatively moderate but still require prolonged treatment and often lost time from work. These injuries include the following:
- Broken bones
- Knee and other joint injuries
- “Whiplash” or strained neck and back injuries, often associated with rear-end collisions
- Cuts, lacerations and severe contusions
No matter the degree of injury you have suffered in a car accident, contact us today to preserve your legal rights and to determine your ability to recover compensation.
Strong Knowledge of Insurance Issues, Complex Claims and Litigation Techniques
In-depth knowledge and determination are essential for the varied aspects of California car accidents. For example, suing a city or the state means following strict deadlines and rules for notice and filing. Uninsured and underinsured motorist laws can be confusing to many people. Proper filing locations or venue, insurance coverage issues, proving liability and damages and other complexities in recovering compensation for your injuries can vary dramatically depending on the following type of claim you have such as the following:
- Car or motorcycle accident involving two or more privately owned vehicles
- Accident caused by a commercial truck or city-owned vehicle
- Car vs. taxi collision
- Injuries caused by drunk drivers
- Injuries as the result of defective or poorly maintained roadways

Why You Need Aggressive Experienced Lawyers for Truck Injuries
Truck accidents in California are common. A passenger vehicle is no match for a tractor trailer or 18-wheeler and you can suffer severe injuries in any kind of collision. A truck accident lawyer must be knowledgeable about state and federal regulations that govern trucking companies and drivers so that legal responsibility can be determined and you can recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
Truck accidents can occur because the vehicle may have been too wide for a turn at an intersection or a truck suddenly veered into your lane of traffic. Pedestrians are injured because the height of the truck impaired the driver’s visual range. Inattentiveness, fatigue, speed, improper handling of cargo, and drugs and alcohol all contribute to devastating truck accidents. Because many trucks and their employers are out-of-state, we can help make sense of the legal aspects of your claim and provide you rigorous representation.
Motorcycle Accidents–Injuries Requiring Substantial Treatment
The Tovarian Law Firm handles motorcycle accident claims and litigation. We will answer all your questions regarding helmet laws, road defects and more. Because motorcycle riders are often blamed for many accidents, we will correct any misconceptions, fully investigate the accident scene, use experts to prove negligence, and present medical evidence to maximize your compensation for outcomes including the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries or concussions
- Loss of limbs or fingers
- Fractures and other bone and joint injuries
- Facial injuries and lacerations that may cause permanent disfigurement or scarring and require cosmetic surgery
California Attorneys Taking Action for Bus Accident Victims
Although mass transit in the Bay Area is far safer than driving your own vehicle, bus accidents do occur. Injuries to commuters occur while getting on or off a city bus because of an improperly maintained vehicle such as a defective step.
Other types of bus accidents include the following:
- Collisions between a bus, car or truck
- Fall or impact injuries by a bus suddenly “stopping short,” throwing passengers onto the floor, into other seats and jarring standing passengers
- Negligent driving by bus drivers such as speeding, running red lights, hitting pedestrians in cross-walks, or other erratic conduct
- A fall caused by a passenger drop-off near a hole or sidewalk defect–or a slip and fall on icy or treacherous bus steps or floors
If you are a bus accident victim, contact us today for an informed evaluation of your case. Our attorneys assist numerous clients each year in their critical efforts to obtain compensation for their medical treatment, to recover lost wages, and enable recovery with the peace of mind our firm can provide.
