Personal Injury
Our experienced attorneys will aggressively and skillfully represent your interests in the handling of your personal injury matter.
The Law Office of Joel Carash offers free consultations for all clients who wish to discuss personal injury matters. If you have been injured, please contact The Law Office of Joel Carash for a consultation today to discuss your legal options. Our law office is dedicated to providing you with necessary legal information in the event you have suffered injuries as a result of the wrongdoing of another.

Accidents can disrupt your life, have permanent ramifications on your physical and mental health, and be the cause of great financial loss.

From the moment after an injury occurs, insurance carriers are at work investigating the incident, taking statements, requesting documents and evaluating your claim. Who is working for you? Make sure you understand your legal rights and options by contacting an attorney at the Law Office of Joel Carash.

What is Negligence?
Negligence is essentially the failure to act with the care expected of a reasonable person. For people operating motor vehicles, this definition encompasses a wide array of situations, from a person distracted by a cell phone, to speeding and reckless driving, to driving under the influence.

Our car accident lawyers have successfully represented people throughout Northern California. We know when a catastrophic auto accident occurs, there is more than just loss of wages and medical costs to cover. Mental stress and anguish are often equally incapacitating and deserve compensation. If you contact our attorneys, we can meet with you free of charge, and if we take your case, we will charge no attorneys' fees unless and until you receive compensation.

Our Firm is Experienced in Litigation
While many personal injury cases settle without the need for litigation (the filing of a lawsuit or "complaint"), it is of paramount importance that the law firm you hire to handle your personal injury case is capable of handling your matter through the stages of litigation. Our attorneys go to Court on a daily basis, and are experienced in litigating cases. Our office will handle your case from the beginning stages, and if necessary, through trial to jury verdict or court judgment, to achieve the best possible result.
