  • Personal Injury

    A personal injury attorney is an attorney who specializes in helping you seek damages for an accident in which you were injured.

  • Car Accidents

    Motor Vehicle accidents account for a significant portion of California’s personal injury and wrongful death claims.

  • Motorcycle Accidents

    After a motorcycle accident, you have two options for securing compensation for your injuries and other losses:

  • Wrongful Death

    The unexpected death of a loved one is a devastating event that no one prepares for. The emotional toll of such a tragedy can be difficult to bear.

  • Truck Accidents

    Motor Vehicle accidents account for a significant portion of California’s personal injury and wrongful death claims.

  • Bicycle Accidents

    Most cyclists are aware of the dangers of bike travel and take precautions to prevent accidents.

  • Brain Injuries

    Most traumatic brain injuries are the result of a vehicle accident, gunshot wound, sports trauma, or child abuse.

  • Bus Accidents

    Accidents involving public and private bus services and school buses are often extremely serious.

  • Scooter Accidents

    If you were injured in a scooter accident or on a scooter due to someone else’s negligence you should speak to an attorney right away.

  • Defective Products

    Each year there are many recalls and safety warnings issued as the result of defective or dangerous auto parts, including seatback failures.

Injured? We Can Help.

Although a majority of personal injury cases involve motor vehicle accidents, car accidents, 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. When these accidents happen our personal injury attorneys are standing by ready to help.

Why You Should Speak With 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.

Cases We Handle

GJEL Accident Attorneys has offices across Northern California. In Fremont alone, we’ve recovered over $10 million for clients injured or killed due to the negligence of someone else.  Every personal injury case is a little bit different. That’s why hiring an attorney with experience from a strong firm is so important. Attorneys can ask one another for clarification about complicated issues of law and draw upon their own years of experience when handling your case. Our Fremont personal injury lawyers handle a variety of case types, including:

  • Car accident injuries,
  • Motorcycle accident injuries,
  • Truck accident injuries,
  • Scooter accident injuries,
  • Bicycle accident and pedestrian injury claims,
  • Brain injury claims, and
  • Wrongful death lawsuits.

Unfortunately, no matter how careful we are, accidents can still happen. If you or a loved one suffered an injury and someone else was at fault, you may be entitled to damages.The Fremont personal injury lawyers at GJEL Accident Attorneys can assess your case and advise you of your best options moving forward.

What You Should Know About This Less-Common 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 less-common personal injury 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 Trial Attorney

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 Recover?

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 There is a Fatal Accident?

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 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 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 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.

Why You Should Hire an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney Instead of Fighting Alone

Navigating the complex world of personal injury cases can be challenging, especially when you’re recovering from an accident or injury. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney can make all the difference in securing the compensation you deserve. In this article, we’ll discuss several reasons why it’s essential to have skilled legal representation on your side, rather than attempting to fight your case alone.

Expert Knowledge and Experience

Personal injury attorneys have extensive knowledge of the legal process and the nuances of various types of cases, such as car crashes, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, birth injury, spinal cord injury, burn injury, and nursing home abuse. Their experience enables them to navigate the complexities of litigation and build a strong case on your behalf, ultimately increasing your chance of a successful outcome.

Access to Resources and Professionals

A personal injury attorney has access to a network of professionals, including physicians, economists, and expert witnesses, who can strengthen your case. For example, in a medical malpractice lawsuit, they can consult with doctors and other medical professionals to establish the extent of the malpractice and the duty of care owed by the defendant. These resources can prove invaluable in proving negligence and securing the compensation you need.

Skilled Negotiation and Trial Advocacy

An experienced personal injury attorney is a skilled negotiator who can effectively communicate the value of your claim to insurance companies or the defendant’s legal team. They understand the tactics that these parties often use to minimize payouts and can counter them effectively. Additionally, if your case goes to trial, your attorney’s expertise in trial advocacy can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.

No Upfront Fees and Contingency-Based Representation

Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning that they don’t charge any fees upfront and only collect a percentage of your settlement or award if they win your case. This arrangement allows individuals who may not have the financial resources to hire an attorney the opportunity to access high-quality legal representation without the burden of upfront costs.

Peace of Mind and Focus on Recovery

Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side allows you to focus on your recovery, while they handle the legal aspects of your case. They can manage the stress of dealing with insurance companies, gathering evidence, and negotiating settlements, allowing you to concentrate on healing and regaining your quality of life.

In conclusion, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney offers numerous advantages over attempting to fight your case alone. Their knowledge, resources, negotiation skills, and contingency-based fees can significantly impact the outcome of your case, providing you with peace of mind and the best chance at obtaining the compensation you deserve. If you or a loved one has suffered personal injuries, contact GJEL Accident Attorneys today for a free consultation and let us help you on your journey to recovery.
