Fernando R. Zazueta practices in San Jose representing plaintiffs (injured persons) in tort and personal injury litigation. He was an associate with the Boccardo Law Firm for twelve years and prior to that was a partner in the firm of Morgan, Zazueta, Morgan, Towery, Morgan and Spector.

Every personal injury case has to have three things:

    1. The injury must have been caused all or in a large part by somebody other than you,
    2. The injury and damages must be sufficiently severe to involve a lawyer,
    3. There must be some insurance available to pay for the damages (other payment sources are problematic).

California law requires all automobile drivers to have liability insurance. This does not apply to passengers but the provisions of Proposition 213 can be examined and discussed in a brief telephone call.

Most personal injury accidents involve the negligence of one or more parties. My function is to find out the facts of how an accident occurred to determine which party is most likely liable for the resulting injuries. Often, an expert's opinion may be necessary to reconstruct the events. It has been my experience that no two cases are every exactly alike. However, many accidents involving vehicles, slip and fall injuries, dog bites, injuries due to dangerous premises, and other typical sources of injury do not necessarily have unusual issues and can often be handled quickly at a minimal cost. Other cases are more involved, there may be several parties and law firms in the case, the costs to process these cases is more, and, in severe injuries or in cases involving wrongful death, it may take one or perhaps more years to resolve. After more than 26 years of practice, I have recovered millions of dollars for my clients. To find out about your case, just give me a call. The following are sample case situations which had unusual facts or issues, they illustrate the unlimited ways in which the negligence of others can produce severe personal injuries for which plaintiffs have been compensated:
