By Your Side After A Motor Vehicle Accident

Sonoma County’s roads are among the most picturesque in California, but they are not free of collision hazards. Serious motor vehicle collisions regularly occur here on county roads, city streets and busy intersections. If you have been involved in a crash in Sonoma County, a Santa Rosa personal injury attorney can guide you through the legal process and help you build a strong accident claim.

Whether you are a California resident or an out-of-state visitor, I can assist you with your motor vehicle accident case. I am Charles W. Applegate, founder and solo attorney at Applegate Law Office. I have nearly 20 years of legal experience with a range of issues, including drunk driving cases, wrongful death claims and other personal injury claims. I am ready to help you fight for the full compensation that you require.

How Were You Hurt?

There are a variety of ways to get around Santa Rosa and the surrounding area. As the modes of transportation increase, the types of accidents caused by motorized vehicles also expand. I have the legal skill to take on these challenging cases.

I am qualified to represent individuals hurt in accidents involving:

  • Passenger vehicles that include cars, vans, SUVs, pickup trucks
  • Rideshare vehicles
  • Motorcycles
  • Scooters
  • Bicycles
  • Pedestrians

After your accident, it’s natural to contact your insurance company to report the details of your collision. Call my Santa Rosa office instead. I will review your accident claim for free and detail your options. If you do have a strong case, I can speak to your insurer on your behalf and protect your claim.

A Note On Commercial Vehicle Collisions

Drivers who hold commercial vehicle licenses are held to a higher standard in California accident cases. Victims and their families may be entitled to steep payouts for reckless or careless actions. Negligent trucking companies can face severe fines for failing to follow trucking regulations.

Trucking companies and insurers try to avoid these expensive outcomes, so they will do everything in their power to weaken your case. I am familiar with these tactics, and I know how to counter them. I will not back down from a challenge. I will make it my mission to get optimal results.
