San Jose Car Accident Attorneys

In the aftermath of a car accident, it’s important to collect and preserve evidence of liability before that evidence disappears. The version of the accident in the police report may be one-sided and overlook evidence that could play a key role in your case.

Car Accident Lawyers in San Jose

At the law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos, our San Jose car accident lawyers get investigators to the crash site quickly, including car accident reconstruction specialists in severe collisions. Prompt action to preserve evidence is a major factor in our record of success. It also helps our car accident attorneys in San Jose determine if there are other liable parties such as manufacturers of defective auto parts or those responsible for dangerous road conditions.

Our car accident lawyers represent car accident victims in San Jose and throughout the Bay Area. Call (650) 345-8484 or contact us online for a free initial consultation.

Understanding Comparative Fault in San Jose Accidents

When a car crash in San Jose results in personal injury, California law analyzes the relative fault of each party. Your recovery will be reduced by any percentage of fault that is assigned to you.

For example:

  • If you are 10 percent at fault, your potential recovery will be reduced by 10 percent
  • If you are 50 percent at fault, your potential recovery will be reduced by 50 percent
  • If you are 90 percent at fault, your potential recovery will be reduced by 90 percent

Insurance Companies and Car Accidents in San Jose

To minimize its potential liability, the insurance company of the other driver will seek to assign as much fault as possible on you. To protect your right to full compensation, you should not discuss the accident or your injuries with the insurance company of the other driver without legal advice. Anything you say can be used against you to minimize your claim.

Our San Jose car accident lawyers have handled cases of major injuries resulting in recoveries in excess of $1 million. Our car accident attorneys have the experience to handle complex insurance issues such as injuries caused by uninsured or underinsured drivers, defective auto parts and defective roadways.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    Lisa D.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
