San Jose Car Accident Attorney

Car accidents are a frequent occurrence in the San Jose area, and sometimes they can lead to serious injuries. A car accident can result in both physical and psychological damages, and can dramatically alter the lives of all who are involved. If you have been involved in a car accident in San Jose and believe that another party is at fault for the injuries that you suffered, it is advisable to speak with an experienced San Jose car accident attorney as soon as possible to learn more about your legal options. 

Recovering Compensation After a San Jose Car Accident

To recover compensation after a crash in the State of California, you must be able to show that the other driver or another party was “at fault,” meaning that their negligent actions caused or contributed to the car accident. There are many negligent acts that can lead to car accidents, such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Running red lights
  • Speeding
  • Following too closely
  • Violating other traffic rules
  • Selling defective vehicles
  • Allowing dangerous road hazards

If you are injured by a driver who is covered by insurance, your case will start by filing an insurance claim with the proper company. If you are hit by a driver who is not covered by insurance, you might need to file a claim with your own uninsured motorist (UM) coverage. In either case, it is important to have the right legal representation from the start of the process. 

Our legal team handles claims stemming from many types of crashes, including:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on crashes
  • Sideswipes
  • T-bones or broadsides
  • Rollovers
  • Chain-reaction crashes
  • Single-vehicle crashes
  • Tire blowouts
  • Hit and runs

We will assess what happened and identify all the necessary insurance claims or personal injury civil claims that need to be filed.
