San Francisco Personal Injury Attorneys
San Francisco is the fourth largest city in California, and the thirteenth largest in the United States, with more than 800,000 residents. Millions more have left their hearts in this popular tourist destination. Affectionately known as the City by the Bay, San Francisco is renowned for its chilly summer temperatures, steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of Victorian and modern architecture, and its famous landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, and Alcatraz Prison (or “The Rock”).
San Francisco Accidents
When compared with other California cities, San Francisco tops the list in a number of positive ways. But it is also Number 1 in something not so desirable – deaths and injuries in traffic accidents.
According to the State Office of Traffic Safety, San Francisco has more deaths and injuries in traffic collisions than any other large California city, when calculated by the number of miles driven. In 2009, 3,745 people were killed or injured in traffic accidents in San Francisco, including 736 pedestrians, 293 motorcyclists, and 522 bicyclists.

Recovery of Compensation
We know that insurance companies often try to take advantage of an unrepresented accident victim, and will fight to limit or deny the financial recovery they are entitled to receive. An experienced personal injury lawyer who is advocating for the victim will know how to prevent insurance companies from getting away with this and can help the victim maximize their compensation. Damages may be awarded for the victim’s medical bills, pain and suffering, the loss of past and future earnings, and even punitive damages if the party who caused the accident acted recklessly or intentionally.
In the event that a wrongful death occurs as a result of another person’s negligence or recklessness, the victim’s loved ones may be entitled to recover compensation, including damages for loss of financial support and loss of companionship.
Act Today, Not Tomorrow
After an accident, it is important for you to pursue all possible compensation and to do it without delay. Quick action helps ensure that important evidence is preserved. In addition, there are strict deadlines for filing various documents, and a delay on your part could result in the forfeiture of legal rights. If we are retained to represent you, we will prepare and timely file the required legal documents for you. We are able to consult with you at any time of the day, seven days a week.
No Fee Until We Recover
At The Reeves Law Group, we are a team of attorneys and legal staff with a shared vision of a fair outcome for each client. This means that we put our years of experience and dedication into each case. To ensure that every accident victim has access to our services, we take our cases on a contingency basis. Through this arrangement you can obtain legal services even if you are unable to pay attorney’s fees. The Reeves Law Group will also advance expenses to pay for expert witnesses, court costs, and other necessary expenditures. We are only paid after we win compensation for you. Over the course of our firm’s history, we have built up considerable resources that can be used to finance the preparation of your case and, when necessary, take your case to trial. Smaller firms without similar resources may have to negotiate a quick settlement for less money than your case is worth.
