The attorneys at Golden State Lawyers, APC focus their practice on helping people who have been seriously injured by the conduct of another party. This area of law is known as “torts” or “personal injury”. A tort is any wrongdoing by a private individual, business or public entity that causes injury to another. Most often, this type of wrongdoing is negligence or other unsafe behavior. Personal injury attorneys represent people who have suffered physical, emotional or economic losses due to the wrongdoing of another party. Personal injury attorneys also represent people who suffer such losses due to death or injury of a loved one.

Golden State Lawyers, APC is a San Jose personal injury law firm in the truest sense: we represent only injury victims and we have the resources and experience necessary to handle any type of case. We never defend companies or individuals accused of wrongdoing; we only represent plaintiffs. With a reputation for success in California personal injury law that spans over 40 years, our firm is dedicated to providing the highest quality legal services to all of our clients. As part of that commitment, we always offer free initial consultations and work on a contingency fee basis. This allows us to offer representation to anyone, regardless of his or her financial situation.

Practice Areas for Our Personal Injury Law Firm

Our personal injury attorneys have successfully represented a wide range of torts, from vehicle accidents and dog bites to premises liability claims involving dangerous property conditions and injuries from defective products. While most of our cases involve physical injuries or deaths caused by negligence, we also represent torts that involve financial injury. For example, insurance bad faith is also a tort, and involves situations where an insurance company wrongfully denies coverage or takes other actions harmful to their insured.

Our San Jose attorneys represent personal injury claims involving:

Keep in mind that this list is not comprehensive. If you have a question about whether your case falls within our practice areas, then please call us. If you need another type of lawyer and do not know where to start, then contact us anyway. We will gladly steer you to the type of lawyer who can best serve your needs. We founded our San Jose personal injury law firm to help people and make sure they receive excellent representation for any issue that might arise.

What Are the Benefits of a Lawyer Who Practices Only Personal Injury Law?

Virtually every facet of American culture today involves the law. Attorneys cannot be experts in all fields; it takes many years to become an expert in one practice area. Therefore, we do not handle criminal cases, divorce proceedings, tax and estate matters, intellectual property or many other types of matters.

Our expertise is personal injury law. We have honed our skills 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 to ensure the best results for clients. Other firms that offer services across many practice areas typically only have limited knowledge because of their other pursuits.
