Berkeley Car Accident Lawyer
Attorney Michael Rehm – (510) 418-0820
Hundreds of people are killed and injured every year in Berkeley traffic accidents. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, nearly a quarter of those accidents are caused by drivers who are speeding. High-speed crashes are more likely to be fatal than low-speed crashes, a fact that accounts for the 43% increase in Berkeley collision fatalities over a recent six-year period.
Distracted driving is another typical cause of car crashes in Berkeley. Drivers who are reading texts, scrolling through contact lists, or entering an address into a GPS do not have their eyes on the road. Even a momentary distraction can lead to a collision.
Berkeley car accident lawyer Michael Rehm can help collision victims obtain the justice they deserve. Our car accident law office helps victims and their families recover compensation for injuries and deaths caused by car crashes throughout Berkeley and the entire Bay Area.

The California Office of Traffic Safety reports that Berkeley has a high number of hit-and-run accidents. We help victims of hit-and-run collisions make claims against their uninsured motorist coverage. Since insurance companies require those claims to be made promptly, hit-and-run victims should seek immediate legal advice about the procedure they need to follow, which involves making sure a police report is filed. If you have been the victim of a hit-and-run, by default you have been struck by someone without insurance, since you do not know who hit you, you also do not know who their insurance policy is through, therefore, your uninsured motorist coverage kicks in. The fact that your personal uninsured motorist coverage applies in hit-and-run cases is often a surprise to victims of accidents, and a good example of why contacting a car accident attorney after you have been involved in an accident is a good idea.
