Reputable law firm pursues your maximum recovery
Situated on a strip of south-facing coastline between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara enjoys such a perfect Mediterranean climate that it has been dubbed “the American Riviera.” But while the seat of Santa Barbara County is indeed a beautiful place to visit, it can lose its luster after a serious accident.

Drawing on more than 40 years of combined experience, our attorneys prosecute your case vigorously and professionally, so you can have confidence throughout the legal process.

Determined advocacy in Santa Barbara injury cases
More than 200,000 people reside in the greater urban area of Santa Barbara, but the city is also a popular destination for day-trippers and vacationers. Visitors arrive by air to the Santa Barbara Airport, by rail via Amtrak, or by car on U.S. 101. The historic Mission Santa Barbara is a major attraction, along with performances at the 2,000-seat Arlington Theatre and the 4,500-seat Santa Barbara Bowl. Students come from all over the state — and, in fact, the world — to study at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Although county government and public education are the major employers, medical and tech workers are also prominently represented in the area economy. With all that goes on in Santa Barbara, it’s not surprising that residents and visitors suffer serious injuries due to preventable accidents.
From our office in the heart of Santa Barbara, Crane Flores, LLP attorneys represent clients in cases as a result of:
- Auto, truck and motorcycle accidents
- Wrongful death caused by negligence
- Defective consumer products
- Slip and fall accidents
Although we handle a variety of injury cases, many of our cases involve catastrophic injuries, such as paralysis, loss of a limb, or traumatic brain injury. These cases require experienced management, because the victims must recover ample compensation for a lifetime of medical care and assistance. That’s why it’s important for every accident victim to retain professional legal counsel. Studies have shown that, on average, plaintiffs with qualified attorneys recover three times as much in damages as those who try to represent themselves.
If you’ve been injured, it is also important to act quickly. The statute of limitations generally gives a victim two years from the date of injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. You also have two years to file a wrongful death claim in the event that your loved one did not survive their injuries. But the sooner you retain an attorney, the better. Your lawyer can immediately begin to assemble and preserve the evidence you need to prevail at trial.

“I wholeheartedly recommend Mark Flores for anyone in need of a personal injury attourney. Mark is competent, professional and (surprisingingly these days) seems to genuinely care about getting his clients a good settlement. I was seriously injured by a negligent driver as a pedestrian through no fault of my own, I experienced a long and painful recovery process and a complex and extended settlement process, Mark did everything he could to make these processes easier. He was also very conscientious about returning calls/emails in a timely fashion.”
