Our Areas of Practice
Personal injury law covers a wide range of accidents and injuries. Our San Jose personal injury law firm is dedicated to helping accident victims and their families seek justice from the negligent and reckless parties that caused the injury. In most personal injury claims, accident victims and their families can recover compensation for medical expenses, lost income, property damages, mental anguish, permanent disabilities, and physical pain.
The compensation available in a case depends on several factors. While no two personal injury cases are alike, we treat each case with the same level of dedication and diligence as we fight for full compensation of all damages.
Examples of the types of personal injury cases our San Jose personal injury attorneys handle include:
- Bicycle Accidents
- Brain Injuries
- Car Accidents
- Dog Attacks
- DUI Victim
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Product Liability
- Slip and Fall (Premises Liability)
- Truck Accidents
- Wrongful Death
Your time to file a personal injury claim is limited by California’s statute of limitations. Do not let a negligent driver, property owner, manufacturer, or other party get away with their actions. Let us help you fight for your legal right to compensation for your damages.
Medical malpractice is a form of personal injury law. When a physician, hospital, or other medical provider causes an injury through negligence, carelessness, or recklessness, that person can be held liable for damages. The injured party can seek compensation for damages, including loss of income, medical expenses, physical pain, and emotional suffering. However, awards in medical malpractice claims are slightly different from awards in personal injury claims.
California’s Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) limits the amount of money a victim can receive for pain and suffering. Under a general personal injury claim, a jury can award any amount for pain and suffering damages. The pain and suffering damages in a medical malpractice claim are limited to $250,000 because of MICRA. The jury can award compensation for other damages separate from the pain and suffering damages.
Our San Jose medical malpractice attorneys understand the laws that govern these cases. We fight to hold medical providers accountable when they make mistakes that result in injuries and wrongful deaths.
Our San Jose law firm also handles whistleblower cases. A whistleblower is a person with evidence or knowledge of wrongdoing by an organization. The illegal acts that are usually the focus of whistleblower cases involve corruption and fraud. A whistleblower can be an employee, former employee, or others who have access to a company’s information. In many cases, when an employee reports a company’s wrongdoing, the company fires the employee or threatens to fire the employee. Terminating an individual’s employment because that person reported illegal acts or violations to the appropriate government agency is illegal.
If you believe you have information about illegal acts or fraud, contact our San Jose law firm immediately. Our whistleblower attorneys are here to provide support and guidance. The decision to become a whistleblower should be made carefully under the guidance and with the help of an experienced attorney. Call our office today to speak with an attorney to discuss your situation. We offer a free review of your case. What you say is confidential and protected by attorney-client privilege.
