The attorneys at Bohn & Fletcher, LLP focus their work in area of law known as “torts.” A tort, as defined by Black’s Law Dictionary, is “a private or civil wrong or injury.” In reality, however, torts are often committed by public entities as well. Primarily, our San Jose attorneys represent people who have suffered physical, emotional and economic injuries because of the wrongdoing of another person, company or entity. This includes situations where a tort results in the death of a loved one. These are known as “wrongful death” cases.
There are many different kinds of torts ranging from auto accidents to defective medical devices. Insurance bad faith is also a tort, and involves situations where an insurance company intentionally denies coverage to an insured party or takes other actions harmful to their insured. Below is a list with examples of the types of claims where torts are often involved:
- Personal Injury/Wrongful Death
- Defective Products
- Auto Accidents
- Workplace Accidents
- Dog Bite Injuries
- Pedicure/Salon Injuries
- Serious Infections
- Spinal cord injuries (quadriplegia, paraplegia, herniated disks)
- Orthopedic injuries (bones, joints, ligaments)
- Burn injuries
- Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse
- Insurance Bad Faith
- Denial of Coverage
Virtually every facet of American culture today involves the law. Attorneys cannot be experts in all fields, and it takes many years to become an expert in one field. We do not handle criminal cases, divorce proceedings, tax and estate matters, intellectual property or many other types of matters. Our expertise, as indicated in the practice areas navigation tab across the top of this page, is representing individuals who have been severely damaged in some way because of another party’s wrongdoing. A key to our success is using our decades of experience in tort law to ensure the best results for clients, compared to other firms that may only have limited knowledge because of their other pursuits.
Examples of the types of cases we specialize in can be found by clicking on the “practice areas” tabs above or selecting a practice area from the menu that appears when the cursor is placed over the tab.
