Motorcycle accidents usually result in serious and complex long-term injuries. We will not let the insurance company take advantage of you. Our California motorbike lawyers handle serious injury lawsuits only and we are not afraid to take insurance companies to the courtroom while fighting for you every step of the way.

WRONGFUL DEATH

GJEL specializes in serious injury and wrongful death cases. When you experienced the loss of life of a loved one, you might have felt completely lost. We are here to help you through this traumatic event and hold wrongdoers responsible for their actions. Our firm has the resources and experience to take your claim through trial and we will work hard every day to ensure we can help you recover. Our seasoned accidental death attorneys are committed to seeking justice and providing compassionate legal support to families facing the devastating aftermath of a tragic loss.

In the wake of a harrowing truck accident, the expertise of GJEL Accident Attorneys becomes an invaluable asset for victims and their families. Our adept legal team is thoroughly experienced in handling complex cases arising from collisions with 18-wheelers and tractor trailers, which often entail severe damages and intricate liability scenarios.

We have helped hundreds of bicycle accident victims with their serious accident cases. Our law office has recovered over $10 Million dollars from bicycle accident cases.

INJURED IN AN ACCIDENT? YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO WAIT

You have only two years after an injury accident to file a lawsuit under the California statute of limitations. If you don’t take legal action within that period, you could lose your right to pursue compensation in court. More important, you need to get started on your claim as quickly as possible. We put our extensive network of resources to work, investigating your accident and gathering crucial evidence. This helps ensure we build the strongest possible case on your behalf.

In most cases, we can negotiate a settlement with the insurance company without having to take your case to court. If we cannot negotiate an acceptable settlement, we may recommend filing a lawsuit and going after the at-fault party and their insurance company in court. Speaking of insurance companies, it’s critical that you do not provide a statement to the insurance company or accept any settlement before you talk to a knowledgeable local attorney. You can call us or contact us online now to speak directly with one of our experienced and compassionate personal injury attorneys.

STAYING SAFE IN PLEASANTON & THE TRI-VALLEY AREA

As part of the East Bay’s Tri-Valley area—along with Dublin, Livermore, Danville, and San Ramon—Pleasanton truly lives up to its name in almost every way. From the historic downtown to the always-popular First Wednesdays and Friday Concerts in the Park, you couldn’t wish for a nicer place to live, work, and play. In fact, our fair city has been recognized repeatedly, including the following notable accolades:

Awards aside, however, Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley area have been the site of many tragic accidents. In early 2021, for example, three serious accidents in three days resulted in five fatalities in the Livermore area. Several of these victims were local teenagers, three of whom died in a collision involving a semi-truck. In another of these tragic accidents, a local mom and retired phone company employee was enjoying a bike ride when she was involved in a collision with a gravel truck, the driver of which fled the scene.

The California Office of Traffic Safety reports that, for 2018 (the most recent year for which data is available), Pleasanton was the site of 284 injury or fatality accidents. Motorcycle riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians were involved with more than 20% of those incidents. Both excessive speed and alcohol were factors in many of these tragic events.

To help ensure the safety and well-being of its residents, the City of Pleasanton has implemented a variety of traffic safety education programs as well as vehicle speed reduction initiatives and an anti-drinking and driving program aimed at younger motorists. Despite these efforts, however, the risk for injury accidents persists.

You can’t control the actions of others on the roadways. All you can do is buckle up, stay alert, and do your best to avoid becoming a statistic. If you do have the misfortune to be involved in an injury accident, the Pleasanton personal injury lawyers of GJEL will be here to help.
