San Jose Personal Injury Attorneys
Being involved in a preventable car accident or any other situation caused by another person’s carelessness or negligence can cause a great deal of physical pain as well as emotional trauma. If you or someone you love was recently injured because of another’s wrongful conduct, a San Jose personal injury lawyer at Accident Lawyers may be able to help. Our law firm is committed to helping victims of serious injuries and accidents throughout San Jose and the surrounding areas in California’s Silicon Valley.
Have you recently been injured in an accident?
If you or someone has recently been in an accident that was caused by the negligence, carelessness or sheer reckless behavior of a third party, then you are most likely acutely aware of the stress that can accompany a situation of this nature. Regardless of the circumstances that led up to the accident, it is not something that you should deal with on your own. Too many people believe that since the other party was clearly at fault that they do not need to seek out the representation of an aggressive attorney. This, however, is a huge mistake. Insurance companies have years of experience in shifting blame and working to protect their assets. Even though they might lead you to believe that they are on your side, the truth is that they really only care about their profits. To ensure that your rights are protected, it is vital that you have an aggressive lawyer on your side to fight against their deceptive practices.
About Personal Injury Law in San Jose, CA
Personal injury law offers a number of benefits to a person who has been injured as the result of another person’s conduct. Grounds for a personal injury claim may include:
Negligence – Doing something or failing to do something that causes injury to another person, when this is considered a lack of reasonable care. For example, a driver has the legal responsibility to drive the speed limit. If he or she is speeding and causes an auto accident that injures another driver, this may be grounds for a personal injury claim.
Intentional wrongdoing – Intentionally causing harm to another person. Attacking or assaulting another person in some way would constitute intentional wrongdoing, and although this may be a criminal offense, the victim may be able to pursue a personal injury claim as well.
Strict liability – Responsibility for an injury a person suffers regardless of specific intent or negligence. For example, under California law dog owners are held strictly liable if their dog injures another person. This means that although the dog owner may have had no knowledge of a dog’s aggressive behavior and even if the animal never bit anyone in the past, the owner may be held accountable under personal injury law.
By establishing the particular grounds for your San Jose personal injury claim, your attorney can work to recover the full financial compensation to which you may be entitled. This may include money for medical care, lost wages, loss of potential earnings, future medical expenses, emotional trauma, and possibly more. The specific value of an injury claim will vary depending on the circumstances as well as the extent of injury the victim suffered.
Compassionate Help with San Jose Accident & Injury Claims
By providing personal attention combined with aggressive legal representation, our law firm is dedicated to recovering the highest amount of financial damages on our clients’ behalf.

Losing a loved one in a preventable accident may cause a great deal of emotional pain and anguish, not to mention financial problems. Unforeseen medical bills and funeral costs can add up to more than a family can bear, only adding to their stress during these difficult times. Wrongful death cases are an important part of our personal injury firm’s practice. We handle lawsuits for surviving family members who have lost loved ones in car accidents or due to medical malpractice, defective products or any type of negligence on the part of another person or company. True, a San Jose injury lawyer at our firm cannot bring back your lost loved one and can never recover enough money to “compensate” you for your loss, but we can help you find a sense of closure and can help you seek compensation that will protect your financial stability.
We are not deterred by daunting circumstances and are only spurred every quicker to action. We recognize the need for responsive, effective legal assistance and are therefore unwaveringly devoted to helping our clients protect themselves. When insurance companies come offering a low-ball settlement, you will be able to breathe easier knowing that you will have an advocate on your side that is both willing and able to help you fight against that. You deserve comprehensive compensation that will be able to help you put your life back on track once more. You can trust that we will be by your side fighting tooth and nail to help you achieve the just amount of compensation that you require.

Drunk Driving Accidents
San Jose Accident and Injury Attorney
According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) approximately one-third of fatal
auto accidents that occurred in the U.S. in 2008 involved a driver who had a blood alcohol concentration that was .08% or greater, above the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle. Although other factors (speeding, poor weather, driver distraction, etc.) may have also been involved, there is no question that a driver’s normal abilities will be impaired if he or she is driving under the influence. This places any driver who shares the road with a drunk driver at risk of involvement in a
motor vehicle accident, and therefore in danger of serious injury or even

San Jose Auto Accident Attorney
Help for Car Accident Victims in San Jose & the Silicon Valley
The majority of auto accidents are relatively minor, occurring at low speeds and involving minimal damage to the vehicles involved. However, even a “minor” car accident may actually have a serious impact on the driver or passenger. In addition to potentially suffering injury in the accident, an auto accident victim will have to deal with filing an insurance claim and seeking the compensation he or she needs to pay for a rental car, medical bills, damage to his or her vehicle, and more. As such, even a fender bender or other low-speed car accident may affect a person physically, emotionally and financially.
At Pacific Attorney Group, we are committed to representing victims of auto accidents throughout San Jose and the surrounding areas in the Silicon Valley. Our attorneys have more than 35 years of collective legal experience in this field, and this means we understand just how severely any auto accident may affect a victim. Whether you are a driver, passenger, pedestrian, bicycle rider or any other party involved in the accident, a San Jose auto accident attorney at our offices may be able to help. All you have to do is call us at 800-670-8142 – your initial consultation is free and completely confidential.
Help for Auto Accident Injury Claims
A person injured in an auto accident may be able to file a personal injury claim against the driver that caused the accident, or whatever party may have been responsible.

A lawyer at our firm can evaluate your particular case to determine who may be held legally responsible, and we can then assist you by taking action against this person or entity.

San Jose Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Auto Accidents Involving Bicycle Riders
When an auto accident involves a bicyclist, this will likely mean injury to the bicycle rider. While the driver or passenger in the car may not be injured at all, the rider of the bicycle may sustain a number of different serious injuries or may even lose his or her life. This is particularly true in low-speed accidents, such as those that occur in parking lots or at intersections where the motor vehicle may be travelling slowly. In 2008, 716 bicyclists lost their lives in motor vehicle accidents and an additional 52,000 were injured, according to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
At Pacific Attorney Group, we understand that bicycle accidents are serious and may leave a victim with a life that is entirely changed. We want to help you take the legal action that is your right, enabling you to recover financial damages for your injuries. With the help of a San Jose bicycle accident attorney at our law firm, you may be able to recover money for medical bills, lost wages, future medical expenses, and possibly more. We can talk to you about your particular case and what it may be worth during a free initial consultation.
Why Bicycle Accidents Occur
A bicycle accident may occur for a number of reasons. Driver negligence is the most frequent cause of traffic accidents, such as
drunk driving, speeding or distracted driving. In bicycle accidents in particular, the motorist may simply not see the bicycle rider until it is too late. In other situations, the motorist may not properly observe the bicycle rider’s right of way on the road. Ignorance of the laws pertaining to bicyclists or basic carelessness may result in a serious bicycle accident that leaves a rider seriously injured.
There is no risk to working with a lawyer on your bicycle accident claim. You pay no legal fees unless we win your case, and your initial case evaluation is free.

San Jose Construction Accident Lawyer
Construction Accidents and Injuries
Because the construction industry deals with physical labor, heavy equipment and a variety of different tools, accidents and injuries may occur that involve construction workers, site visitors and even passersby. The type of construction accident and extent of injury a victim sustains will vary depending on the particular case, but a victim may be at risk of serious injury or even wrongful death. At Pacific Attorney Group, we represent construction workers and others injured in San Jose construction accidents. We represent clients in filing
personal injury and workers’ compensation claims related to these incidents.
To schedule a free case evaluation, call us at 800-670-8142. We accept calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will take the time to talk to you about your San Jose construction accident claim and what can be done to help you.
If you are a construction worker, you may have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim under California law to seek benefits, regardless of who caused the accident. In workers’ compensation claims, you do not need to prove that someone else caused the accident in order to recover compensation. If you were a visitor to a San Jose construction site or were simply passing by, a personal injury claim would likely be the route to take. In filing a personal injury claim in civil court, you would have the opportunity to recover financial compensation from the responsible party (such as the construction company or perhaps the manufacturer of a defective tool or piece of machinery). In any event, taking legal action in the wake of a construction accident is an important part of rebuilding your life and moving on.
For a free consultation regarding your construction accident claim, contact a San Jose personal injury attorney at Pacific Attorney Group today.

San Jose Motorcycle Accident Attorney
How do I prove liability in a motorcycle accident alaim?
Proving liability, or legal responsibility, in a motorcycle accident claim must be accomplished by establishing that the defendant (the person who caused the accident) had an obligation to act in a certain way, violated that obligation, and caused your injuries. Speeding, drunk driving, running a red light or racing on a public roadway may all be examples of circumstances that would result in a driver being held accountable for causing your motorcycle accident and therefore liable for paying financial damages for your injuries. Most of these claims are paid by the responsible driver’s insurance company.
Motorcycle Accident Attorney Serving San Jose
When a motorcyclist is involved in a traffic accident, he or she may be at great risk of serious injury. A motorcycle offers little to no protection to a rider in the event of a collision with a much larger motor vehicle, and this means that the rider will typically sustain the brunt of impact. A motorcycle accident victim may be left with serious head injuries, spinal cord injury, brain damage, and disfigurement from “road rash,” burns or lacerations. In the wake of an accident of this kind, it may be necessary to involve an attorney who can help the victim in filing an insurance claim and seeking full financial compensation for his or her injuries.
By calling 800-670-8142 and talking to a San Jose personal injury attorney about your motorcycle accident, you can find out more about what particular legal rights you have in seeking financial damages. With our help, you can get the information you need to make the right choice about moving forward with a personal injury claim and holding the responsible driver accountable.

Motor Vehicle Accidents
San Jose Personal Injury Lawyer
The term motor vehicle accident typically refers to any accident involving a motorized vehicle. This may be a single-vehicle accident, multi-vehicle accident or even an accident involving a pedestrian or bicyclist. Depending on the specific circumstances, a motor vehicle accident may cause serious damage to any person involved as well as to the vehicles or other property. That is why it is important for the victim of a motor vehicle accident to consider involving an attorney who can help him or her seek and recover financial damages for his or her injuries.

When a pedestrian is involved in a motor vehicle accident of any kind, the results are often catastrophic. The victim may be at risk of suffering injuries that may result in scarring, disfigurement or a temporary or permanent disability. This is due to the nature of a pedestrian accident and the fact that even in a low-speed collision the pedestrian may be at risk of broken bones, internal injuries and severe head trauma. While the driver of the car may walk away unscathed, the pedestrian may be disabled for life.
If you would like a strong advocate to stand up for your rights in your insurance claim and lawsuit related to your or a loved one’s pedestrian accident, do not hesitate to call our offices at 800-670-8142.

Truck accident cases are often serious. A semi truck, big rig, tractor-trailer or any large commercial truck may weigh anywhere from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds or possibly even more if the carrier has a permit to transport oversized cargo. When a passenger vehicle, such as a car, light truck or SUV is involved in a
motor vehicle accident with a truck, the results are most often catastrophic to the occupants of the passenger vehicle. For a
bicyclist, the consequences may be even worse.
Weight and Truck Accidents in San Jose
The weight of a large truck is the primary factor associated with the severity of these accidents. In any collision, the smaller object will sustain the most damage, and this holds true in trucking accidents as well. In fact, according to statistics compiled by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), only 16% of the people killed in truck accidents in 2008 were the drivers of the large trucks. 74% were occupants of the other vehicles involved in the accident, and another 10% were non-occupants (pedestrians or bicyclists).
If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation for your injuries.

At Pacific Attorney Group, we represent individuals and families throughout the San Jose area who have lost a loved one as a result of the negligent conduct of another person. Auto accidents are the most common type of claim that arise in this regard, but we also handle any case that involves another person’s or entity’s action or inaction, resulting in a failure to act with reasonable caution or care. We can even handle wrongful death claims involving intentional misconduct, such as an assault or attack.
About Wrongful Death Claims
Although the responsible party may face criminal action for what they have done, a civil lawsuit may be filed as well. These two cases are entirely separate of one another, and this means that even if a defendant is found not guilty in criminal court that the family may take action in civil court to seek justice.
A wrongful death lawsuit may be brought about following the death of a person that was caused due to negligence or another wrongful action on the part of another person. The surviving family members may be able to take legal action in civil court to hold the responsible party accountable and seek financial damages for their loss. Although nothing can compensate a family for the loss of a loved one, this money may help with funeral costs, medical bills and in protecting the family’s financial future in the absence of their loved one.
To learn more about your rights in filing a wrongful death suit, contact a San Jose attorney at our law offices today. We will be happy to see how we can assist you, and your initial consultation is free and confidential.
