With more than 50 years of combined experience in auto accident claims, our father-daughter team of San Francisco auto accident attorneys at the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel work for drivers, passengers and pedestrians who are injured in car accidents in the Bay Area. We know how devastating it is to be involved in a car accident, especially when an otherwise avoidable accident is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another driver. Whether in court or during settlement negotiations, we fight to protect your rights to compensation for all your injuries and lost wages.
According to the California Highway Patrol, more than 229,000 people were injured and 2,700 killed in California car crashes in 2010. Of these, nearly 17,000 injuries and 1,000 fatal car accidents involved drunk driving and more than 30 percent involved speeding. Bay Area counties accounted for more than 440 of these injury accidents.
As these statistics show, car accidents involving catastrophic injuries or wrongful death are far too common, and your chances of someday being in an accident are high. At the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel, we strive to minimize the repercussions of an auto accident by strongly advocating for your rights to compensation for pain, suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity and medical treatment. Our car accident lawyers provide meticulous and zealous representation for victims injured because of dangerous or defective road or highway conditions.

Under California law, all auto insurance policies must contain a provision that addresses uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverage. Simply put, these provisions are designed to cover you if you are injured and the responsible driver lacks sufficient insurance to cover your medical bills and other costs. Although it may sound simple, it can be very difficult to get a full and fair settlement from the insurance company of the liable driver. Our injury attorneys provide skilled representation for Bay Area residents involved in auto accidents with underinsured and uninsured motorists, giving you a strong voice against insurers who attempt to unfairly deny or undervalue your claim.
Since 1972, the Law Office of Michael and Michelle Mandel has been helping Bay Area victims injured in auto accidents recover significant compensation for the harm done to them.
