San Mateo, California is home to more than 92,000 residents, is a part of San Mateo County, and is located on the San Francisco Peninsula. A mere 12.2 square miles in size, San Mateo had a total of 15 vehicles involved in fatal accidents in 2008, and 17 people involved in such accidents. Across the country, just the previous year, there were a total of 93,722 motorists involved in fatal accidents. Regardless of how small San Mateo's fatal accident numbers are in comparison to national figures, there are still too many motorists involved in fatal accidents each year, and such numbers can certainly fluctuate. For instance, in 2006 San Mateo had a total of 29 people involved in fatal car accidents, an indication that the problem is far from under control.

Regardless of the scope and severity of an accident, every detail surrounding that accident needs to be carefully examined in order to determine whether or not negligent action played a contributing factor in the accident, and whom that negligent action may be attributed to. All accidents can be attributed to at least one party. In some cases, while it may be deemed that all parties involved were at equal fault, it is often the case that one or more parties is more responsible for having caused the accident. Reckless driving practice and inattention to the road can result in a car accident with little or no warning. In all accidents though, victims involved can ensure that their rights are protected in a court of law by retaining the services of an experienced San Mateo car accident lawyer.
