San Jose Drunk Driving Attorney
Representing Victims of Serious Accidents
One of the most dangerous types of driver negligence takes place when drivers drink and drive. Operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.08% or higher is grounds for a charge of driving under the influence (DUI). Drunk driving should never be condoned or excused, especially if it caused you or your loved one harm or wrongful death.
After being involved in a serious motorcycle accident, our lead attorney, Tab Mitchell, chose to devote his life to the law. His former involvement working for insurance company defense firms and his firsthand experience in a severe accident gives our firm incredibly unique insight into personal injury law. Our firm has a reputation for securing substantial settlements for victims and surviving family members and has been doing so for decades.

Should I hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?There are several reasons for hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury claim, rather than representing yourself. 1.) It allows you to focus on your own recovery, rather than the complicated details of your case. 2.) By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.
How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?
This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.
What is the average settlement amount for a personal injury claim?
The average compensation amount for a personal injury case is anywhere from $3,000 to $75,000, depending on what type of damages you are pursuing.
Does California put damage caps on claims for personal injury cases?
No, only Medical Malpractices cases have a cap. California Civil Code section 3333.2 sets a cap on the amount of non-economic damages (pain and suffering) that can be recovered in a medical malpractice case. The maximum amount that may be recovered is $250,000. All other Personal Injury cases are not subject to any cap.
