When you are out and about driving around the city, the last thing you should have to worry about is the negligence or carelessness of another driver causing you harm. However, we know that there may be a time when you need a car accident attorney in San Francisco. At Allegiance Law, we want to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

At Allegiance Law, we understand the importance of having a competent lawyer who understands how to handle these situations. Let us get to the bottom of what happened so we can secure the following:
