Proudly Providing the Best in Bay Area Legal Services


The Law Offices of Andrew S. Cantor has considerable experience providing legal representation to individuals who have been injured in a car accident. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an auto accident occurs every ten seconds in the United States.


The statistics regarding traffic fatalities in California are startling. In 2012:

  • 3,382 total traffic fatalities
  • 1,269 with alcohol related causes
  • 1,422 with speed related causes
  • 416 resulting in pedestrian deaths


The statistics show that less than 600 traffic fatalities are teen drivers, so insured adult drivers with the assets necessary to substantiate a lawsuit are causing most of these serious accidents. At the Law Office of Andrew S. Cantor, we offer representation from a qualified car accident lawyer with the expertise required to investigate the contributing causes of your accident to help you receive full compensation. In addition, we will assist you in finding an appropriate medical specialist and treatment needed. 


The Law of Negligence


Fault in auto accidents is often decided using what is known as the law of negligence. This is a technique used by car accident lawyers and courts to require negligent drivers to pay for damage caused by their negligence. This includes damage to the vehicle and driver.


When determining negligence, courts consider several factors; some of these factors which are used to determine negligence include:


  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Driving at a speed that is too fast or too slow for the posted speed limit
  • Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Failure to use signals when turning
  • Driving in a manner that is unsafe for weather or traffic conditions
  • Failure to obey traffic signs and signals
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road

There are additional factors that are used to determine fault in an accident, such as:

  • Willful disregard, or intentional reckless conduct
  • Product liability if accidents are caused by a defect in the vehicle
  • In some cases of intoxication, the alcohol provider can be found at fault


Regardless of the specific factors, the Law Office of Andrew S. Cantor works to investigate the accident and secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries and property damage. We offer a free consultation; there is no charge for the initial consultation with us, and if we accept your case, we work on a contingency basis and only get paid if we recover compensation for you.


For all automobile accident cases, it is essential to act quickly to investigate the accident, preserve evidence and enable physicians and expert witnesses evaluate the accident and resulting injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, call the Law Office of Andrew S. Cantor at (415) 509-8105 or submit a case form on our website. Don’t delay in seeking help - you may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.
