Losing your health is difficult to understand until it actually happens to you. When another person caused an injury, you have the right to file a personal injury claim.
At The Swanson Law Group, our legal team is focused strictly on personal injury cases.
Our dedication, hope, and faith, combined with a no-compromise approach, has led to many high-value settlements and jury awards. If you or someone you love has been injured, you need an advocate who is committed to getting justice and full compensation for you and your family.
Our case results tell the story of a winning law firm
Our founder, attorney Ben Swanson, has faced health challenges himself. Because of this, he relates to those who have suffered an illness or injury, and the pain and suffering they experience. He has taken his own health challenges and transformed them into a superpower to help his clients achieve justice. He and his talented team of trial lawyers are unrelenting, and won’t compromise with the health and future of a client. Here are just a few of our case results:
- $8,870,000 verdict: Semi-truck accident
- $6,250,000: Confidential personal injury settlement
- $5,000,000: Vehicle accident
We do not compromise, and we are ready for battle
We can’t promise that your case will achieve comparable results, but we can promise that when we take on a case, we are unrelenting, uncompromising. We are focused on taking care of our clients while taking down insurance companies who often try to pay less than they deserve.

What we do: Personal injury cases in San Jose, CA
The Swanson Law Group represents injured people in a wide range of cases, including:
Brain injuries are among the most difficult to treat and the hardest for medical professionals to predict whether the injured person will recover, or how much. Some patients recover fully, while others are left with cognitive, physical, and emotional impairments that last a lifetime. The compensation pursued in a brain injury case must reflect the long-term impact on the health and wellbeing of the individual.
When a commercial product causes an injury, a claim can be filed to seek compensation for all damages. Whether it’s a vehicle, vehicle part, tool, dangerous drug, medical device, or any other item, if you or someone you love has suffered a serious injury, illness, or loss of life, it is imperative that you have the help of a personal injury attorney in San Jose that will help you fight for justice.
Burn injuries often require a series of surgeries and are among the most painful to treat. When the burns are deep (third degree), affecting the muscle tissue, skin, ligament, and tendons, they can affect mobility. These injuries can leave a person disfigured and suffering extreme emotional anguish. The compensation pursued in these cases should cover all damages: financial, emotional, and physical.
Sports injuries can occur in any sport at schools, colleges, or sports camps, both in public or private groups and teams. The injuries sustained can include soft tissue injuries such as sprains and strains, broken bones, knee damage, tendon damage, dislocations, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or fatal injuries. If you or a loved one was injured playing sports, you deserve to find out if a claim or lawsuit can be filed to seek full compensation — and we are here to help.
Medical malpractice claims are filed when a medical professional fails to provide the accepted standard of care — the care that another, similarly trained practitioner would have administered under similar circumstances. The medical professionals named in a medical malpractice case could be a physician, nurse, anesthesiologist, pharmacist, dentist, or other medical practitioner.
If you have lost a loved one due to a negligent or reckless act, whether in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or other type of accident, the close family has the right to file a claim to recover damages. Under the California statute of limitations, you have two years from the time of death to file a claim, after which you are barred from seeking compensation. If your loved one died in a construction accident or other incident, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible.
Spinal cord injuries
Spinal cord injuries can leave an innocent person facing a lifetime of challenges. Even with advances in medical science, repairing damaged nerves may be impossible. The injured person may suffer paralysis, either paraplegia or quadriplegia (tetraplegia). Spinal cord injuries typically require a lifetime of medical care and forever alter the future opportunities of the injured. At The Swanson Law Group, we understand how difficult it can be to move forward, and our mission is to help our clients experience the best possible quality of life with a positive attitude, making the most of the money they recover in a claim or lawsuit.
What is my personal injury case worth?
Every case comes with a unique set of factors and evidence. At The Swanson Law Group, we perform a full investigation into what occurred and how the injury has impacted your ability to earn a living, enjoy life, or pursue your chosen profession. The types of compensation pursued in these cases include:
- Economic damages: These are the actual financial losses associated with the injury, including medical and hospital bills, ambulance costs, medications, transportation, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and all future estimated financial losses.
- Non-economic damages: This portion of a settlement or jury verdict is often the largest amount in a personal injury claim. These damages must cover the personal and emotional toll on the individual, including pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, emotional anguish, loss of the ability to share intimacy with your spouse or partner, and other personal losses.
