No one wants to need a lawyer, but if you're in need of consultation on an employment related-m...

I feel so grateful to have Eric represent my auto accident cases. I am very happy with the settlements he successfully negotiated for me; indeed, the amount of money that I received is more than what I expected. My personal injury cases were a little complicated. I had two car accidents in a row within two months, both at the other party's fault. The first one was a tailg...

I cannot thank Eric Gruber enough! After calling several law firms regarding my car accident, Eric was the most helpful. I called him after work hours but he still took my call and gave me advice right away. What a nice surprise that he even did more research and emailed me more information on my car accident claim. With his help, I am satisfied with my settlement. Justice h...

I'm relatively new to the US and wanted a little legal advice - I was very lucky to stumble across Gruber Law Group. The service I received was personalised, friendly and efficient (much appreciated!

At the end of 2013, I was involved in a three-car accident while stopped at a red light. An SUV hit the car behind me and the force of the collision drove that car into mine. My car was damaged a bit, but I suffered some whiplash and headaches for which I went to Stanford Hospital to get checked out. Fortunately, I had insurance which covered most of the hospital visit but I...

Do I need A Lawyer?
The truth — not all cases require an attorney, and you may be able to effectively handle the case yourself if you have legal experience and the necessary resources. However, if you have been injured in an automobile, pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle or other traffic accident in San Francisco, the Bay Area, Oakland, San Jose, or Sacramento, you should start out with a free consultation with an experienced attorney before deciding to handle things on your own. The process of resolving a claim against an adversarial insurance company is not like dealing with your own insurance company. Gruber Law Group will give you the competent advice necessary in your personal injury case to keep insurance companies from taking advantage of you.
There are also major benefits to retaining an attorney. You can have peace of mind knowing that you are working with an attorney who conducts negotiations for a living, and who knows what a good settlement offer is. It is always worth asking yourself the question, “Is the extra money you might be able to net by not hiring an attorney worth the 30–70+ hours you’ll need to properly put your case together?” A part-time job or extra hours at your current job might give you a better return for your time.
As a general rule, hiring an attorney will pay for itself. Consider these statistics obtained from an Allstate Insurance Training Manual:
What To Expect During Your Personal Injury Lawsuit
Call Gruber Law Group for a FREE consultation. You will speak with a lawyer who will answer all the questions you have about your case. BE PREPARED. In order to properly evaluate your case, GLG will need to know details about your case. Have any police reports, incident reports, medical records, and other notes ready when you call. We will discuss our representation fees and encourage you to ask any questions you may have, so that you are comfortable being represented by GLG.
First and foremost, you need to call a personal injury attorney if you suffered even minor injuries. Whether you are at the scene, or speaking over the phone to anyone, never admit fault and do not apologize. These admissions can be used against you to place you at fault, even if you weren’t.
Obtain a police report, if possible, and document the scene of the collision. Often in California, unless there is a “serious” injury, police will refuse to make a report in these circumstances, so it is important that you carefully document the collision with photographs of both vehicles, and the surrounding area. Locate any witnesses who may have seen the collision and get multiple forms of contact for them. Even if the other party admitted fault at the scene, they will often change their story later, not wanting their insurance rates to rise. Be your own investigator. Take pictures and videos of the damage to all vehicles involved.
If you have suffered from a personal injury in the San Francisco Bay Area, or anywhere in California, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages for 1) Past and future medical bills 2) Lost wages 3) Loss of earning capacity 4) Loss of consortium 5) Loss of household services (having to pay others to do things you were once able to do yourself) 6) Pain, suffering, inconvenience, and 6) Other incidental expenses caused by the injury. You are also entitled to recoup monetary damages for any damage to your property. Which of these damages you are entitled to recover depends on a detailed factual analysis of your case. Consult with an attorney to know what types of damages you are able to recover in your specific case.
You need to submit the bill to your medical insurance provider and pay any co-pays, or pay what is billed. Many people wonder, “Why should my insurance pay for it, I wasn’t at fault.” If you do not submit the bills to your insurance, do not pay the bills out of pocket, or fail to get the payments delayed pending the resolution of your personal injury action, you run the risk of marring your credit, with the bill being sent to collections. While many people understand that the at-fault party’s insurance is required to pay for medical bills related to a personal injury case, many do not understand that the defendant’s insurance is in an adversarial role and does not pay out claims like your own insurance would. The defendant’s insurance won’t pay your bills one at a time as they come in.
The settlement value of California personal injury claims is based upon too many factors to be able to adequately discuss in an FAQ. If you’ve suffered only minor soft tissue injuries, you may be surprised to learn your case may only garner a $5,000 – $10,000 settlement. Factors which influence the value of your personal injury case are both factual and legal. The following list provides many of the factors the attorneys will consider when valuing your personal injury matter. 1) Facts that affect who is at fault or who can be proved to be at fault 2) Whether the conduct causing your personal injury was intentional, reckless, or merely negligent 3) The nature and extent of your injuries and the costs of treatment 4) The type of medical treatment you receive (doctor visits, physical therapy, chiropractic, surgery, etc.) 5) Objective finds to support your complaints of physical pain 6) Your medical history and prior injuries, especially if you are claiming injury to the same or similar body part 7) your age 8) your occupation and earning capacity 8) the types of physical activities your regularly participate in and which were limited by your injury.
Many factors affect how long it will take your lawyer to resolve your personal injury case. Gruber Law Group resolved a case in as little as two weeks, but such a settlement occurred under exceptional circumstances. Much more common is for cases to be resolved within 1-3 years from the time you retain an attorney, less if you have already completed your medical treatment. Your personal injury case shouldn’t be settled until after you have finished your medical treatment. Following the conclusion of your treatment, your medical records must be ordered and the documentation needs to be fully acquired that supports your personal injury claim. This takes a significant amount of your time and your lawyer’s time.
Gruber Law Group charges clients based on a contingency fee. In other words, whether you pay GLG or not is contingent on whether we obtain any monetary recovery for you. We will never charge you an attorney’s fee unless a monetary recovery is made on your behalf in your personal injury matter. Gruber Law Group also advances all the costs associated with your case, including filing fees, expert fees, investigative fees, and medical records request fees. If GLG is unsuccessful in winning your case and obtaining a monetary award on your behalf, you will not be responsible for reimbursing us for these costs. Gruber Law Group also guarantees that our attorney’s fee will never exceed the amount of money you put in your own pocket following the conclusion of your case.
I snowboard. I know what
it means to be injured.
I am Eric Gruber, the founder of Gruber Law Group. I am an avid snowboarder who has experienced my share of injuries, mostly self-inflicted. I understand the impact and toll injuries can take on your life and I do my best to use that experience to provide you with the type of zealous advocacy you can only get from someone who has “been there” and can see things from your point-of-view. I know what it’s like to be hobbled by crutches and to have experienced whiplash so bad, that I understand when my clients say, “it is hard to brush my teeth in the morning and get dressed.” Trust me. I’ve been there.
