Aggressive Auto Accident Attorneys Serving Victims in South San Francisco

Our law firm pursues the maximum possible compensation for your injuries

If you have been in an accident, you deserve to be made whole. The Law Offices of K.J. Petsas, PC has represented car crash victims in the South San Francisco bay area for 40 years. We have a proven track record of success fighting big insurance companies for the maximum possible compensation. We are known for our diligent investigations and passionate advocacy for our injured clients.

We understand how a vehicular accident affects your life

An auto accident can interfere with almost every aspect of your life. A so-called fender-bender may require you to take days off of work. A more serious accident can result in permanent injuries that substantially impair your ability to work to your previous capacity. Our firm can help you recover the compensation you are entitled to for lost wages, future earnings, medical bills, rehabilitation, and pain and suffering.

Our attorney conducts a complete investigation about what happened and who is to blame for your injuries. We consider such common causes of vehicle crashes as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Poor driving conditions
  • Vehicle malfunction

In addition to recovering your rightful damages from your insurance carrier, we may suggest you pursue damages against an at-fault party, such as the other driver, a bar that served an intoxicated driver or the auto manufacturer that produced a defective vehicle.

We consider relevant factors that affect settlements

Most auto accident claims settle. The settlement amount depends upon the nature and extent of your injuries and the damages to the vehicle. Our firm is skilled at reaching the best possible settlement in each case. To evaluate your settlement potential, we investigate such factors as:

  • Vehicle damage — We independently verify the adjuster’s estimate of vehicular damages and the value of a totaled automobile. In the most serious accidents, or if we believe an auto defect may be to blame, we may retain an expert to thoroughly inspect the vehicle. 
  • Severity of injuries — We recover for your medical bills related to severe injuries and can often negotiate directly with the hospital and doctors to reduce your out-of-pocket payments. We also calculate the costs of care you will need in the future. 
  • Relationship of the injuries to the crash — A common insurance company tactic is to claim that your injuries were preexisting or unrelated to the accident. Under the so-called eggshell doctrine, you are entitled to compensation for the worsening of preexisting conditions. We draw a clear line of evidence to show that the crash directly led to your injuries. 
  • Amount of lost wages — Our firm proves you lost wages while recovering from your accident. We also show how your injuries will affect your future earning capacity.

Our willingness and preparation to take a case to trial is an integral aspect of our success during settlement negotiations. If, after careful consideration we believe you can do better at trial, we will recommend taking your case to court.
