Areas of Auto Accident Expertise

General Auto Accidents

Auto Accidents can occur at any time by any means. When this happens, we know it takes a strong personal injury attorney to stand up to the responsible party so you receive the proper compensation.

Asleep at the Wheel

Often, asleep at the wheel accidents are overlooked though, simply because there is no test or way to tell that this is what happened when the police investigate. There is no Breathalyzer for sleepiness.

Cell Phone Use

Research indicates that cell phone use while driving increases the risk of an auto accident by four times the normal risk. The highest risk comes from texting while driving, but talking on cell phones impairs the drivers as well.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driving accidents are so common that it is nearly impossible to look at any news and avoid a story of yet another collision. Drunk drivers aren’t just responsible for actual auto collisions either. Often, hit and run cases involve driving under the influence as well. As more people have access to vehicles, the numbers tend to go up as well.

Intersection Accidents

Intersections create a danger for crashes simply in their design. Because vehicles are meeting together from four or more different directions, it seems that crashes are almost inevitable. When you combine this with the fact that reckless and unsafe drivers are on the road every day, the chances of intersection collisions goes up.

Head on Collisions

While head on collisions add up to a very small percentage of the accidents that occur in the US annually, they are still very dangerous and can still result in severe injuries or fatalities.

Rear End Collisions

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a rear end collision, you may be entitled to compensation. Given the circumstances, you may also be entitled to punitive damages as well. It is important you with speak with an experienced aggressive attorney who will fight for your rights. Don’t leave your accident claim to just anyone.


Tens of thousands of people lose their lives due to speeding related accidents, and hundreds of thousands of people suffer from injuries that vary in nature. Billions of dollars are spent on vehicle repair and medical bills as a result on speeding related collisions.

Side Impact Collisions

Side impact collisions occur for a number of different reasons. One of the most common is running red lights. If a vehicle doesn’t stop at a red light and a vehicle is traveling through a green light at the same time, a collision is imminent.


“My case had been rejected by 3 other law firms here in San Diego but attorney Harold Thompson saw the injustice in a way the others couldn’t. In the end, he was able to recover $250,000 for my injuries.”
