Dedicated Santa Barbara Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer
Helping you through the aftermath
Accidents happen unexpectedly and end in an instant. But the after-effects can last a lifetime. At Patterson Law, we understand the full physical, financial and emotional impact of a motor vehicle accident. Every day, we help clients cope with the lingering trauma caused by the reckless, careless and even intentional actions of others. If someone has caused you suffering, we do everything we can to make certain that they are held responsible — and that you receive the fair compensation you deserve.
Top-notch research, case preparation, negotiation and trial skills
At Patterson Law, we are proud to provide the kind of research, negotiation skills and legal experience generally found only in large, impersonal firms. But our entire team is also committed to giving you the individual attention you would expect from a small firm. In addition to car accidents, Santa Barbara motor vehicle accident attorney Robert Patterson handles cases that include trucks, motorcycles and public transportation vehicles.
With nearly 35 years of experience as a top motor vehicle accident attorney in Santa Barbara and Ventura, he has a strong record of winning maximum compensation for our clients for:
- Medical care
- Lost income
- Lost earnings capacity
- Loss of limbs
- Loss of loved ones
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
Identifying less-than-obvious injuries
While a broken bone or a laceration may be obvious, not all injuries are. Head, brain and back injuries may take hours or even days to become fully evident. You may suffer a neck injury but little emotional distress from a fender bender, or emerge from an accident that was fatal to someone else relatively unharmed physically but suffering from serious emotional trauma.
According to the American Psychological Association, a traumatic event such as a car crash can have significant long-term psychological as well as physical consequences. It is essential to get medical help, keep a record of your injuries and the treatment received and talk to an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney in Santa Barbara to ensure all potential issues are addressed.
