Injured in a Slip-and-Fall? We Can Help.

Although a majority of personal injury cases involve motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall cases make up their own sizeable portion. Did you know that slipping and falling in a Fremont grocery store like City Market may entitle you to compensation?

We can help you recover damages whether you’re injured in a car accident or at the store.

Grocery stores, apartment complexes, cities, and other businesses are all required to keep their public areas safe. A business owner’s negligence may create hazards like rickety staircases and slippery floors. If you slipped and fell and believe that it was due to the negligence of the business you may have a personal injury case.

Why You Should Speak With Our Fremont Personal Injury Lawyers as Soon as Possible After an Accident

After receiving medical care, one of the best things you can do after an accident is speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. Doing so promptly is important for a variety of reasons.

The Statute of Limitations Can Limit Your Ability to Recover

There is only a limited amount of time you have to file your case before the statute of limitations expires. Once it does, you no longer have the legal right to file your claim. In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury is generally two years from the date of the injury. However, in some circumstances it may last longer if you did not discover your injuries until much later.

Useful Evidence May Be Lost or Destroyed

When wrongdoers don’t admit fault you will need strong evidence to win your case. The longer wait to speak with an attorney, the more likely the evidence you need will be lost or destroyed. In more serious matters such as wrongful death cases, having thorough evidence is essential.

Insurance Companies May Try to Get You to Settle Too Early

Claims adjusters and the insurance companies they work for can and will make unfair offers to you. Remember, it’s in the insurance companies best interest to pay out as little as possible. As a result, they may try to pressure you into settling for less than your case is worth. Hiring an attorney early on will ensure that you don’t accept a settlement too early.

Brain Injury Cases Are Complicated. Don’t Settle for Anyone But Our Top-Rated Brain Injury Lawyers.

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of brain injuries, like concussions, in the United States. However, everything from slipping and falling to an accidental gunshot can also cause brain injuries. In many cases, brain trauma results in serious, life-altering injuries. Someone who suffers a brain injury may require ongoing medical treatment or become unable to work.

Brain injuries affect not only the life of the injured person, but often the lives of their family members as well. As a result, this type of case is complex, and requires a strong understanding of how this type of injury can negatively impact the victim’s life. GJEL has recovered over $50 million for our clients who have experienced serious brain injuries. Speak to a Fremont brain injury lawyer today for more information.

Dog Bites: What You Should Know About This Less-Common Personal Injury Claim

In California, the law holds pet owners responsible for bite injuries caused by their pets. This is true even if the owner was unaware of any previous history of biting by their dog. All California law requires is that 

  • The damages were caused by a dog bite, and
  • The person bitten was in a public place or lawfully on the owner’s private property when the bite occurred.

Even though a bite may not seem serious, dogs and other animals may transmit harmful germs and bacteria in their bites that can cause serious lifelong injuries. As a result, prompt medical treatment is crucial.

GJEL has experience as a Fremont dog bite law firm, and if a dog or other animal injured you during an attack, you may be eligible for compensation. Our attorneys are familiar with the possible defenses the other side may raise and can help you get the most out of your case. In many cases, the homeowner’s insurance policy will cover the medical bills and other damages for injuries sustained from a dog or other animal.

Knowing When You Should Hire a Car Accident Lawyer

There’s no perfect rule of thumb when it comes to deciding when you should hire an attorney. However, in personal injury cases, the statute of limitations, availability of evidence, and severity of the injuries that may be involved make it a good idea to hire an attorney as soon as possible.

There are more than 3,000 car accidents in California every year, resulting in over 250,000 injuries. Accidents can happen at any time, and even minor collisions can cause serious injury. In these cases, hiring a car accident lawyer is a good idea, especially if your injuries require expensive or long-term medical care or rehabilitation. 

Motorcycle accidents are also fairly common. Unfortunately they typically result in even more serious injuries because motorcycles offer less protection to the rider. If you or a friend or family member suffered severe injuries in a motorcycle accident, contact a motorcycle accident lawyer right away. Our Fremont motorcycle accident attorneys are among the highest-rated attorneys in the state. 

Additionally, with the rise of e-bikes and electric scooters throughout Fremont we’ve seen that the risk of scooter accidents is greater than ever before. Like motorcycles, scooters offer very little protection to their riders. Even a low-speed collision with a vehicle can cause serious injuries to pedestrians. 

GJEL has handled hundreds of car, truck and motorcycle accidents in the Fremont area, recovering over $10 million for clients injured in serious car accidents. If you were injured in an accident involving a truck, whether because of a negligent lane change, reckless driving, or another reason, you should speak with a truck accident lawyer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Damages Can I Get in a Personal Injury Case?

No two cases are alike, and as a result, the damages available to you may vary. In general, however, injured victims may recover economic and non-economic damages for their medical expenses, lost wages, lost future earnings, and pain and suffering. GJEL has recovered nearly $1 billion in settlements for our clients.

What Happens When a Personal Injury Is Fatal?

When a loved one is killed due to the negligence of someone else, you may not know where to turn. Wrongful death lawsuits allow the family of the victim to recover damages, usually to support funeral costs and help the family gain some closure. GJEL’s wrongful death lawyers can help you file your case and get back on your feet after such a major tragedy.

How Much Will My Personal Injury Case Cost?

Because GJEL works on a contingency fee basis, your case costs you nothing unless we win. Offering this payment system is one of the benefits of being an established personal injury firm. We have the resources necessary to take on your case without any upfront payment, bringing greater access to personal injury representation to the citizens of Fremont.

How Much Money Can I Get from a Personal Injury Settlement?

Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be able to obtain anywhere from several thousand to several million dollars. Each case is unique, and there are many other factors that influence how much your case may be worth.

What Kinds of Accidents Are Eligible for a Settlement?

Any injury caused by someone else’s negligence could be eligible for a personal injury lawsuit. This includes injuries caused by everything from someone driving while texting to a store manager not cleaning up a dangerous spill. Motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, and even bicycle and pedestrian accidents all count as well.

How Long Will My Personal Injury Case Take?

Most cases settle out of court around one year after we file them. However, any number of unexpected things could occur during your case that extends that time. If your case goes to trial, it may take even longer. Our attorneys may be able to provide you with a more solid timeline after discussing some of the details of your case.
