San Jose Can Be Dangerous

Who doesn’t love living and working in San Jose? Even the venerable Forbes magazine waxed poetic over the many highlights of the city. From our cultural and economic opportunities to the area’s natural beauty and perfect climate, we have much to enjoy.

Unfortunately, we have to deal with some less attractive aspects of this area—one of which is the high rate of injury accidents we see every year in our city.

Traffic accident-related deaths are high and still rising, as are vehicle-pedestrian collisions. In fact, last year was the deadliest year for pedestrians in more than two decades. Electric scooter accidents are becoming more common by the day, as are bicycle, hit and run, and rideshare accidents from services like Uber and Lyft.

Commercial trucking accidents involving 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, and other heavy commercial vehicles pose an ever-present challenge in San Jose and throughout the Bay Area. Data from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) ranks California and the Bay Area as having some of the highest rates of large truck and bus crashes in the country.

No matter how careful you are when you get behind the wheel of your car, take a walk, or go out for a bike ride, you could fall victim to the reckless, careless, or negligent actions of someone else at any time. If you or a loved one does sustain injuries, you deserve to have work with one of the highest rated car accident lawyers in San Jose CA.

Helping You Recover the Compensation You Deserve for Your Injuries

We are often asked how much the average personal injury settlement is. Unfortunately, that’s an impossible question to answer. What you really need to know if how much your personal injury claim value might be.

In personal injury cases, victims typically have the right to recover compensation for all of their physical, emotional, and financial damages. This could include compensation for your medical care costs, lost income, pain and suffering, disability, or disfigurement.

We can assist you no matter what type of injuries you or a loved one sustained, including:

  • Trauma activation,
  • Hospitalization,
  • Air lifted / Flight for Life,
  • Serious injury,
  • Surgery, and
  • Death.

If you are hospitalized or otherwise incapacitated, we will send someone to you, wherever you may be. We also have the ability to consult with you via secure video conferencing channels as well as by phone and email. This helps ensure your health and well-being and allows us to serve you whether you’re housebound or out of town.

Don’t talk to the insurance company, sign any releases, or accept any settlement offers until you talk to one of our experienced San Jose personal injury law firm staff members. You can contact us online now or call 866-293-9364 to schedule your free consultation today.

Frequently Asked Questions


Most San Jose personal injury attorneys work on contingency, meaning you don’t pay them until they win your case. You want a law firm with the resources to investigate, hire experts, and negotiate for as long as it takes to get you the money you deserve. If a firm can’t afford to see your case through, they might push for a quick settlement instead of advocating for maximum compensation.


Every accident case is different, but we can give you an estimated settlement request after we meet with you in a free consultation. We will advocate for your maximum settlement. In our 40 years of fighting for accident victims, GJEL has won nearly $1 billion for our personal injury clients.


If you were injured in accident, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. Injuries in car accidents, bike accidents, motorcycle crashes, scooter accidents, and workplace accidents might be eligible for compensation. Contact GJEL for a free consultation to see if your accident injury is grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.


In a personal injury lawsuit, you can recover economic and non-economic damages from your accident. These damages include medical bills, car repair expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If you have an attorney to negotiate on your behalf, you can usually receive much more compensation than you can by filing an auto insurance claim on your own.


If you or someone you love was seriously injured or killed in an accident you should contact an experienced law firm right away. Contacting an attorney immediately will help you explore your options and preserve evidence for your case well before the statute of limitations expire. In some cases, insurance companies will try to get you to settle quickly to get out of having to pay you what you actually deserve.


This depends on the facts of your case. In many cases, we will seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering as well as other expenses. Since no case facts are the same it’s important to have a personal injury attorney work through your case to reach this conclusion. We will go after the maximum insurance coverage.
