A Law Firm That Fights For Auto Accident Victims
Getting around in the Bay Area is tough to do without the help of private and public transportation. But all that traffic comes with some serious risks. Auto accidents are among the leading causes of injury and death statewide. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a negligent driver, the Law Office of Michael E. Gatto PC is here to help you seek the compensation you deserve.
Our attorney has more than two decades of experience as a personal injury attorney and has been involved in more than 100 jury trials. Settling out of court is a very common strategy that can be highly beneficial for plaintiffs. But if we are unable to reach a fair and appropriate settlement that meets your needs and respects what you’ve been through, we will not hesitate to take the case to trial.
Whether in court or at the negotiation table, you can rely on Michael E. Gatto’s command of personal injury law, his extensive knowledge of medicine/injury and his tenacity on behalf of clients.
Ready To Take On Any Accident Scenario
There are seemingly countless ways to get injured in a motor vehicle accident. Some of the more common crash scenarios include:
- Car accidents
- (Semi) truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Commercial vehicle crashes
- Bus, light rail and BART accidents
- Ride-sharing accidents (involving Uber, Lyft and other companies)
- Pedestrian and bicyclist injuries
- Crashes caused by drunk driving, distracted driving and other illegal behaviors
- Accidents caused by uninsured or underinsured drivers
Fully Utilizing Personal Injury Laws To Maximize Compensation
The specific approach we take to your case will depend on numerous factors, including the type of defendant (average person, company or municipality) and all causes and contributing factors to the accident. However, you can rest assured that we will hold all negligent parties accountable in order to maximize your recovery.
In the case of a truck accident, the defendants could include the truck driver, the trucking company and the commercial insurer. In the case of a drunk driving crash that occurs after the at-fault driver left a bar or other alcohol-serving establishment, we may also be able to hold the business liable (for overserving the patron) under California’s dram shop laws.
