What Happened And Why?

Car wrecks come in many forms. All too often, they are caused by another driver’s negligence. A careless driver was texting behind the wheel, driving drunk, speeding or just not paying attention. They ran a red light, changed lanes without looking, failed to stop in time – and now you are left with serious injuries.

Each of the following types of auto accidents has a unique characteristic and is treated differently under the law and under the California Vehicle Code section: a hit from behind (rear-end collision), hit from the front (head-on collision) or hit from the side (T-bone or sideswipe accident). You want an attorney who takes care in reviewing the what and the why of your case in order to build a successful case.

Fault And Liability For A Car Accident

Fault is not always obvious in the aftermath of a car crash. Adrenaline is running high, injuries cloud thoughts and victims may not even know exactly what happened. The person who caused the car accident may not be willing to take the blame or, worse yet, may blame the victim for causing the accident. Investigations may need to go in-depth in order to demonstrate exactly what happened.

We go beyond the police report when necessary, conducting car accident reconstruction studies or bringing in expert witnesses to prove that the other driver was at fault and is liable for the injuries and property damage you suffered.

More Than 25 Years Of Experience In All Kinds Of Car Accidents

Every type of motor vehicle accident comes with unique issues: Truck accident cases involve unique insurance matters and tend to cause extremely serious injuries.

Motorcycle riders also tend to suffer serious injuries when they are hit by a car, simply because they don’t have the protection afforded to people in cars. Bike riders and pedestrians are in a similar position.

We also handle public transit accidents involving the bus or train. These claims involve not only auto accidents but also slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents that occur at transit stations or on the vehicles.

The Right Attorney For Your Case

The Mason Law Firm is managed by attorney Mason Rashtian. Before he represented injured parties, Mason worked for prestigious firms as an insurance defense attorney. This means that the insurance company would hire him (as the attorney) to represent drivers who were at fault for car and vehicle accidents. For almost a decade, he worked closely with drivers, doctors, experts and insurance companies in defending auto accident cases. He knows how defense attorneys and insurance companies think and knows how they work.

That experience as a defense lawyer makes Mr. Rashtian an even more effective plaintiff lawyer. He has litigated thousands of car accident cases since 2006. So, when we represent a client, we use his vast knowledge as an experienced personal injury attorney and his training as a former insurance defense attorney to serve the interests of our clients.

Mason Rashtian is AV Preeminent peer review-rated, the highest rating, through Martindale-Hubbell* and a member of The National Trial Lawyers’ Top 100 Trial Lawyers, a professional organization composed of premier litigators around the country who exemplify superior qualifications as plaintiff trial lawyers.
