San Jose Personal Injury Attorney
Protecting the Rights of the Injured Since 1966
Founded in 1966 by Founding Attorney Michael M. Shea, it has been the commitment of Shea & Shea to provide high-quality and reliable legal assistance to the victims of catastrophic injuries. As a client-centric firm, we are dedicated to ensuring that those we work with receive prompt and attentive service. We know that some firms are content to run "legal mills," that push clients through with little care to their unique needs, but that is simply not the way we operate. At our firm, we understand that the aftermath of a personal injury accident is incredibly difficult and can leave the victim and their family in a truly stressful situation.
When faced with the fight against the negligent party and involved insurance companies, these victims need more than a San Jose injury lawyer – they need an advocate. They need a fighter who will be able to step up and provide them with aggressive protection in the fight for just monetary compensation. This level of advocacy can be found at our firm. With
over 50 years of experience and a team composed of uniquely qualified personal injury lawyers in San Jose, we are able to help clients in a variety of
personal injury cases. By pairing aggressive negotiation skills with considerable talent in the courtroom, we have been able to help countless clients get their lives back on track once more.

Our Areas of Practice: Catastrophic Injuries
At Shea & Shea, one of our primary focuses is in helping those who have sustained catastrophic, life-altering injuries from the negligence or recklessness of another. We are specialists in brain and spinal injury cases – understanding the drastic effect that this can have on the lives of the victims. Regardless of the exact circumstances of a case, we are well-known for our ability and our commitment to helping clients who have sustained these injuries. We are compassionate to the stress associated with these severe injuries and will do everything we reasonably can to ensure our clients get the assistance they deserve.
One thing that has assisted us in complex cases is our ability to work with outstanding experts in a variety of fields while building cases. From neurologists and physiatrists to specialists in emergency medicine, vocational therapy, physical therapy, and life care planning, we take a multi-disciplinary approach. We are comprehensive as we build cases, doing everything we reasonably can and involving as many experts as possible to prove our point and help our clients in the recovery of monetary damages. We are well-known for our ability to composed skilled teams of experts, something that has proven invaluable throughout the years.
For example, in one recent case we handled, we involved no fewer than 18 separate experts. We understand that this can be costly—something that can deter a personal injury victim from contacting a lawyer—but we are proud to assume this expense on behalf of our clients. By working on a contingency fee basis, our clients essentially make us partners in their case. Our past success has enabled us to assume the risk of personal injury litigation – which can allow for us to establish a claim thoroughly without cutting corners. Since we are covering the cost up-front, our clients can proceed without fear of financial complications tempting them into accepting a low-ball settlement offer from insurance companies. In the end, we only collect attorney's fees and recover expenses if we are successful in collecting a settlement or verdict.
