San Jose Car Accident Attorney
Obtaining Results for Injured Clients for Over 40 Years
The cost of a car accident involves more than just initial medical expenses and car replacement costs. In auto accidents resulting in serious injuries such as head trauma, spinal cord injury, and amputation, injury victims face months, if not years, of medical treatment, wage loss, and reduced quality of life. Some of the most devastating car accidents are ones involving
drunk drivers, and we can help victims fight for the compensation they deserve.
At Shea & Shea, our injury lawyers have been obtaining excellent results in car accident litigation for more than 40 years. Our legal practice emphasizes comprehensive personal service to clients severely injured in all types of motor vehicle accidents, including
bicycle and pedestrian accidents,
motorcycle accidents, and
truck accidents. If you or anyone in your family has suffered a disabling or permanent injury in a car crash, contact us to schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced lawyers in our San Jose, California office.
Determining the Facts: Recovering Fair Compensation
Because the insurance liability limits in many car accident cases will be inadequate to cover the full amount of damages for the most severe injuries, we concentrate on finding the facts that will support pursuit of multiple sources of compensation. Our goal is to maximize the amount available to meet your claims, because in the worst injury cases, you will need to recover as much as you can.
Our lawyers have the legal experience and scientific and medical knowledge needed to recover optimal results in cases of brain injury, spinal cord injury,
neck and back injury and other neurological injury. This experience and knowledge together with our reputation for outstanding litigation results, has led to many referrals of complex
personal injury and
wrongful death cases from attorneys in California, Oregon, Arizona and other western states. Depending on the specific facts of a car accident claim, we will investigate the possibility of litigation against such defendants as the following:
- Car companies whose defective auto design or negligent assembly made your car or SUV less crashworthy or more likely to experience a rollover accident
- The manufacturer of defective auto parts such as aftermarket brakes, malfunctioning seatbelts, or defective airbags
- The state or county government entity responsible for defective highway design or unsafe road conditions
- A driver whose negligence caused another motorist to hit you
- Your own insurer for uninsured or underinsured motorist benefits
The investigation and forensic proof of disputed facts in complex and catastrophic injury accident claims can be very expensive. At Shea & Shea, our long record of success in major personal injury litigation allows us to advance the costs involved in proving your case at our own risk. We only collect attorneys' fees and recover our expenses when we recover damages for you through settlement or at trial.
Recovering Maximum Damages for Car Accidents
At Shea and Shea, we are proud of our accomplishments, including our listing in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers and our AV peer-review rating. However, we are most proud of what we have been able to accomplish for our clients over the past 40 years. If your case involves injuries for which the prospect of a full recovery remains in doubt, our concentration on severe car accident claims can make a significant difference in your ability to collect all the compensation you will need to support a long convalescence or lifelong disability.
