What types of personal injury cases do we handle?

Burn injuries

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.

Burn Injuries

Sports injuries

Sports injuries can occur in any sport at schools, colleges, or sports camps 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 total compensation — and our personal injury attorneys can help.

Sports Injuries

Wrongful death

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 types 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 death to file a claim, after which you are barred from seeking compensation. If your loved one died in a construction accident or incident, you must seek legal counsel immediately.

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.

Defective products

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 severe injury, illness, or loss of life, you need the best personal injury attorney in San Jose that will help you fight for justice.

Brain injuries

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 have 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 well-being of the individual.

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.

Why choose The Swanson Law Group?

Many lawyers are good at rounding up clients, sending them a chiropractor, and urging them to accept whatever the insurance companies offer. They don't know the value of their client’s injuries, what it feels like to lose your health, or what it takes to regain it. Attorneys need to stop looking for shortcuts. Most have no idea that an insurance policy can be opened and that the insurance company will eventually pay the total value. At The Swanson Law Group, our personal injury lawyers in San Jose take your injuries very seriously, and we pursue fair and total compensation for our clients.

We represent the injured and help them fight for justice in all types of cases, including:
