Motor Vehicle Accidents

Nothing is more important than recovery and compensation for your loved one after a severe injury.

San Francisco Car Vehicle Accident Lawyers Serving California Victims

With decades of experience both in negotiations and at trial, the personal injury lawyers at Abramson Smith + Waldsmith have the skill, experience and resources to effectively bring any type of motor vehicle accident claim. Whether you were hit by a car while biking or suffered burns in a car-truck collision, we can conduct an immediate and thorough investigation to identify who was responsible for your injuries.

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.

At Abraham Smith & Waldsmith, LLP, we have a track record of success handling motor vehicle accidents. Insurance companies know our lawyers; they’ve seen us in courts in the Bay Area and throughout California. Our reputation for results puts clients in the best position in negotiations.

No injury case is a slam dunk. You need strong legal representation. Here are a few things to consider when selecting a lawyer. We invite you to contact us to learn more about our San Francisco motor vehicle accident lawyers and how we can answer your questions and help your case.

We handle serious injury and fatal accident cases involving:

We also handle mass transit accidents involving BART, Muni and cable cars, plane crashes and boating accidents due to negligent operation of a boat.

Complexity Is No Difficulty For Our Firm

Not every personal injury firm is equipped to handle challenging cases, such as accidents caused or contributed to by a defective car part, a defective auto design or a defectively designed roadway. In trucking accident cases, a proper investigation of the truck accident will go beyond evidence at the scene.

Taking on a product manufacturer or a government agency requires additional resources and the use of experts. At Abraham Smith & Waldsmith, LLP, we’ve handled these types of cases before. We can call upon expert accident investigators and engineers to determine the real cause of your accident and injuries.

Depending on how your accident occurred, there may be more than one source of financial compensation, such as an underinsured motorist policy. We explore every avenue of compensation to ensure you receive the money you need for your medical bills and expenses.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury — traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or loss of a limb — we encourage you to contact a San Francisco motor vehicle accident lawyer at Abraham Smith & Waldsmith, LLP. The sooner you seek competent legal representation, the better your chances for a positive outcome.

Vehicle Accidents

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.


Abuse & Molestation

 Priests, ministers, church officials and workers, coaches, teachers, day care workers, park rangers, and other trusted adults who sexually molest children, ruin lives and cause irreparable psychological damage.


& Serious Injuries

People suffering from a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other severe injury will require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy and other long-term care.



Claims related to sports and recreation injuries can be complicated. These cases often include issues involving waivers and the “assumption of risk” defense.


& Spine Injuries

When you or a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes dramatically. Even mild TBIs can lead to years of recovery and rehabilitation.
