Powerful Legal Advocacy After A Car Accident
If you’re like most Americans, driving is a big part of your day, perhaps every day. Even if you’re a safe and defensive driver, you can’t control others on the road. Accidents happen. And if someone else was at least partly at fault, you’re entitled to compensation.
Getting a fair settlement can be an uphill battle when it comes to car accident claims. That’s why you need skilled and capable legal representation. You’ll find a team of proven advocates at Bulldog Law. Our lawyers have extensive experience navigating California car accident cases.

What Causes Car Accidents?
There can be many factors that contribute to an accident. Some of the most common include:
- Distractions like cellphones, tablets or talking to passengers
- Inattentive driving
- Drunk or intoxicated driving
- Driving too fast for the conditions
- Defective brakes, tires or other auto parts
It’s not always obvious what contributed to the accident, which is why you should never admit fault or give a recorded statement to insurance. Talk to our lawyers first to understand your options.
Statute Of Limitations For California Car Accident Claims
In California, the victim of a car accident has two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. As personal injury claims can take months or longer to resolve, make sure you file your claim as soon as possible.
