Help For Injured San Francisco Accident Victims
The city by the bay is home to over 870,000 people and growing. With so many people packed into 46.87 square miles, accidents are bound to occur. In fact, San Francisco has some of the highest injury and fatality rates for motorcycle, pedestrian, and bike accidents in the entire state of California.
An accident, can leave injured victims physically, emotionally, and financially drained. Recovery is no easy process, but Kuvara Law Firm was founded with the goal of helping victims recover as quickly as possible.

Over 6,000 car accidents occur throughout the country every day. While these accidents are unintentional by nature, many of them are preventable. Negligent driving behaviors such as texting while driving or driving while intoxicated should be avoided at all costs. When a driver’s negligent behavior causes you harm, you may be entitled to compensation.
San Francisco is a beautiful city to bike in and it’s been consistently rated one of the most bike friendly cities in the country. The Bay City has made great strides in improving bicycle infrastructure in the last four years with miles of new bike lanes and bike facilities. Still, bike accidents do occur. When a driver negligently hits a cyclist, injuries can be catastrophic. Thus, earning a proper settlement is crucial. Kuvara Law Firm has a long history of fighting for injured cyclists and ensuring they receive the settlement they deserve.
Walking is by far one of the healthiest means of transportation, but healthy doesn’t equate to being safe. Too often, driver distraction, intoxication, or disregard for traffic laws will result in pedestrian injury. Unlike drivers, pedestrians have no metal cage for impact protection. Pedestrian accidents can yield some of the worst injuries, which makes obtaining a proper settlement even more important.
Motorcycle crashes are inherently more dangerous than car crashes, because there is no seat belt or metal cage to protect you from impact. Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can be severe, with medical costs reaching higher than $30,000 in some cases. It’s unreasonable to expect you to carry the full burden of these expenses and insurance may not provide you the full value of your claim. Our San Francisco personal injury attorneys can investigate your accident and fight on your behalf to ensure no money is left on the table.
The number of trucks out on the road are growing by the day to meet transportation demands. As the number of trucks on the road increases, the probability of ending up in a truck accident also increases.

A truck accident attorney can help investigate your accident to put together a case that will earn you the compensation you deserve.
As one of the larger vehicle classes out on the road, riders are generally much safer on a bus in a low speed crash. However, high speed bus crashes can be incredibly dangerous, especially since riders are not secured by seat belts. Riders who have been injured in a bus crash may be entitled to compensation due to negligence on behalf of the bus driver, bus company, bus manufacturer, or a number of other entities and individuals.
While trains are relatively safer than many different forms of transportation, accidents still occur. If you’ve been injured in a train accident, liability could fall on one of the employees, a part manufacturer, a part installer, or local government. It’s to your benefit to contact an attorney for legal advice if you’ve been injured in a San Francisco, California train accident.
While airplane accidents are nowhere near as frequent as road accidents, the injury and fatality rates are far higher. Airplane accident claims are difficult claims to pursue alone. There are often many different parties involved and several individuals or companies who could be held liable. If you’ve been injured in an airplane accident, it’s best to consult an attorney before filing a claim.

Product manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure their products are safe for sale before selling them to the public on the market. Manufacturing or design defects can compromise the safety of a product, which can result in injury or death. In these instances, it’s important to hold liable parties accountable and ensure justice is served.
While a hospital is designed to make you feel better walking out than you felt walking in, that is not always the case. A doctor or medical professional may prescribe the wrong drug, incorrectly perform anesthesia, perform a surgical error, or misdiagnose a medical problem. Medical mistakes can have serious and lasting consequences. Seeking legal counsel is important to ensuring you receive justice for injuries caused due to medical malpractice.
