  • 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.

  • Insurance Disputes

    Most of the time in a personal injury case we will sue insurance companies who try to pay the minimum amount possible based on their policy coverage. We are experts in filing lawsuits and winning these complex cases against insurance companies.

  • Defective Products

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

Rely on GJEL to Be By Your Side

A car accident can force you out of work while you recover from your injuries. In the meantime, bills pile up.

Anxiety and fear grow as your future becomes less certain.

Orinda Car Accident Lawyers Serving Our Clients’ Best Interest

We take a different view of our clients’ cases than many other personal injury firms. We take an individualized approach toward you and your case and strive to do what is best for you. Our philosophy helps our clients win the largest amount of money for their claims.

Over 40 Years of Excellence

GJEL is an innovator in personal injury representation. With over 40 years of dedicated service to Orinda and surrounding communities, we developed a unique position in the community as staunch advocates for our clients. We employ our collective experience, know-how, and knowledge to work for you.

Dedicated to Helping People Injured Because of Another’s Negligence

GJEL lawyers solely focus on personal injury law. That’s all we do. Our narrow focus has allowed us to develop a broad network of resources and knowledge, which we put to work for you right away.

We Do Not Charge Any Fee Unless We Win Your Case

We want you to focus on recovering from your injuries. Let us take care of your legal problems. We work with our clients so they never have to spend any money to hire GJEL. Instead, we only take a fee if we win. Although we cannot guarantee success, we remain confident that we can help you. We maintain a 99% success rate in our cases.

Do Not Wait to See What Happens. Call GJEL Now Before You Lose Out

California strictly limits when you can file a personal injury claim. You have only two years from the date of your car accident to file a claim in court. You will lose your chance to claim monetary damages if you miss that filing deadline.

We encourage you to contact us right away if you believe you have an Orinda car accident claim. Our Orinda car accident attorneys will review your claim and get to work immediately on collecting the largest settlement possible for your case. If the insurance company refuses to settle for a fair sum, then we will file your case in court and fight for you.

Representation by an Experienced Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Will Help You

Few road users are more vulnerable to suffering catastrophic injuries in a crash than motorcycle riders. Motorcycles tend to hide in plain sight on Orinda’s roads. Their slender profile makes them hard to see at times. Notwithstanding, all motorists must watch out for motorcycle riders and ensure that they avoid colliding with them.

A motorcycle rider becomes instantly vulnerable to injury and death upon colliding with another object. Motorcycle manufacturers build their bikes with enough power to try to avoid collisions. But they do not build them to withstand collisions.

Contact a Seasoned Orinda Truck Accident Lawyer Right Away

All road users are vulnerable to sustaining severe injuries or death if they collide with a truck. Sharing the road with a commercial truck is scary. With their sheer size and the speeds they travel, they can destroy anything in their path. 

Commercial truckers receive specialized training and licensing before they can drive. They must also follow numerous safety regulations. Despite these requirements, trucking companies often prioritize fast delivery over safety. 

With an Orinda truck injury lawyer fighting for your rights, you know you have the best chance of making the trucker driver and trucking company pay for the damage they caused.

Orinda Brain Injury Lawyer Dedicated to Ensuring Fair and Just Compensation for You

Brain injuries are cruel, to put it bluntly. Most brain injuries are long-lasting and could be permanent. Some lucky few recover from brain injuries, but many people never fully heal.

If you or a loved one suffered a brain injury in an accident caused by another, you need to be sure that your present and future medical expenses are covered. Also, you must be sure that you receive compensation for your lost wages and future earnings. Allow our firm to use our experience and resources to ensure that your loved one is cared for now and in the days to come.

Compassionate Representation from an Orinda Wrongful Death Lawyer

The grief, anguish, and pain felt by the sudden and tragic loss of a loved one are unimaginable. Once the shock of your loss begins to fade, you may realize that you need to seek justice for your loved one. Let us help.

We know that recovering a financial settlement from a wrongful death claim cannot make up for your loss. However, fighting for justice on behalf of your loved one could help you begin to heal.

Injuries Our Clients Suffered in Orinda Car Accidents

The top lawyers with GJEL practice only one area of law: personal injury. We focus only on fighting for people injured by others. As lawyers for the disabled, we have vast experience handling claims involving:

  • Auto collisions,
  • Slip and fall accidents,
  • Truck accidents,
  • Motorcycle crashes,
  • Bus accidents, 
  • Pedestrian accidents,
  • Bicycle collisions, 
  • Electric scooter crashes,
  • Uber, Lyft, and taxi accidents,
  • Aviation crashes,
  • Boating accidents,
  • Defective products,
  • Premises liability, and
  • Wrongful death.

The preceding list is only a sampling of the types of cases we see everyday. You should contact our office immediately, even if you do not see your accident type listed. Our experience handling only personal injury cases gives you an advantage.

Trust The Expertise of an Orinda Personal Injury Lawyer to Represent You

We have also handled numerous claims in which our clients sustained horrible, life-altering injuries. Our clients had severe injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries,
  • Spinal cord injuries,
  • Scarring,
  • Paralysis,
  • Amputations,
  • Compound bone breaks and fractures, and
  • Internal injuries.

Each client who comes to us for help is suffering. They suffer from their physical injuries as well as the emotional trauma they experience. The negligence of others has ripped apart so many innocent lives. We are here to make it right for you and your family.

Car accidents continue to ruin the lives of tens of thousands of people every year. Even though safe auto standards increased dramatically over the past decade, people continue to get hurt in car crashes. We handle car wreck cases stemming from the negligent or careless actions of others, including:

  • Failing to yield,
  • Speeding,
  • Drunk driving,
  • Distracted driving,
  • Texting and driving,
  • Aggressive driving,
  • Road rage,
  • Inexperienced drivers, and
  • Reckless driving.

Every time someone gets behind the wheel, they are undertaking a considerable responsibility. Sadly, many people no longer appreciate the level of responsibility they accept when they drive a car. Therefore, people will continue to sustain horrible injuries in car accidents until everyone understands that we have all others’ lives in our hands.
