San Jose Personal Injury Attorneys
San Jose is the third largest city in California, with a population of more than 945,000. Founded on November 29, 1777, to support Spanish military installations in San Francisco and Monterey, San Jose has grown from a small farming community to the “Capital of Silicon Valley.” Blessed with a mild climate, beautiful parks, and miles of hiking trails, San Jose has been named one of the Best Walking Cities in the United States.
Accidents in San Jose
Like many large cities, San Jose has its share of accidents. For example, on September 16, 2009, a 62-year-old woman was walking on the popular Los Alamitos Creek Trail when her legs became entangled in a dog leash held by a passing bicyclist riding alongside his two Siberian Huskies.
The woman fell, struck her head, and died the following day. Although the San Jose Mercury News labeled this a “freak accident,” common sense dictates that extreme caution be used when a bicyclist rides on a busy trail with two large dogs in tow.
Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney
Every day, people are injured or killed in San Jose as the result of someone else’s negligent or irresponsible behavior. If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident, it is important that you protect your legal rights by consulting with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
For over twenty-five years, the accident attorneys at The Reeves Law Group have specialized exclusively in personal injury law. We recover many millions of dollars annually for clients who have been injured by the careless acts of others. Our team of dedicated lawyers and support staff has the expertise and skill to obtain the best possible results for our clients.
If your injuries have left you unable to visit us, our personal injury attorneys will meet with you at your residence, place of business, or hospital room. We are also available at any time of day or night to discuss your case and to begin gathering the facts necessary to prove your personal injury claim.
Time is of the Essence
California law requires that personal injury claims be filed within certain time frames. If your lawsuit is not timely filed, you may be prevented from recovering any compensation for your injuries, even if the other party is clearly at fault. It is also critical to collect evidence quickly, and to interview witnesses while their recollections are still fresh.
No Recovery, No Fee
The Reeves Law Group has the economic resources to investigate and prepare our cases promptly and efficiently. Other personal injury firms may be forced to settle your case prematurely, due to a lack of adequate financing. We have the financial backing necessary to pursue your claim to a successful outcome, through either settlement or trial. Our fees are contingent, which means that we do not charge attorney’s fees unless we recover monetary compensation for you.
