Experienced Santa Barbara Auto Accident Lawyer

Fighting to protect your financial future

Auto accidents are a leading cause of death in California, and the personal and financial cost of car crash injuries is astronomical. At Patterson Law, we protect our clients from financial burdens resulting from the negligence of others. You have suffered enough.

With nearly 35 years of trial experience, Robert Patterson has recovered significant damages for our personal injury clients, including:

  • Drivers
  • Passengers
  • Law enforcement officers

Insurance companies are not on your side

Anytime there has been an injury or serious damage, you should talk to a Santa Barbara auto accident attorney. Unfortunately, even your own insurance company’s primary goal is to settle the matter as soon as possible at the least possible cost to the company. You need someone on your side. You should also know what to do following an accident and get medical advice as soon as possible.

Fighting for your full compensation and care

Our Santa Barbara and Ventura accident attorney diligently researches, carefully prepares and skillfully argues your case to ensure that you receive complete compensation, including for:

  • Medical care
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Loss of income
  • Reduced earnings capacity
  • Loss of loved ones
  • Loss of limbs
  • Disfigurement
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

Recognizing when someone else is as fault

A 2010 report issued by the National Safety Council estimated that 28 percent of all traffic crashes involve drivers using cell phones and texting. Negligence can also include:

  • Other distractions (eating, putting on makeup, etc.)
  • Tailgating
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence
  • Knowingly using faulty equipment (worn brakes, tires, etc.)
  • Breaking a law (running a red light, passing on the right, etc.)

Car accidents can also involve negligence by car companies and poor infrastructure, such as:

  • Faulty airbags
  • Seatbelt malfunctions
  • Unrepaired bridges
  • Poorly designed ramps

We also handle cases where personal injuries are caused by intentional actions, such as when a jealous ex hits your car on purpose or a suspect tries to escape by ramming a police vehicle.
