Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

Experience Makes a Difference in Personal Injury Cases

The more experienced the lawyer in a personal injury case, the better the lawyer will know how to manage the case and determine what it is worth. At Girardi | Keese, we leverage more than 40 years of personal injury legal experience to assure that every client receives the full value of our representation.

If you have been injured or you have lost a loved one because of someone else's negligence, contact us. Our law firm is small enough so that even the newest associates can collaborate with the partners on an informal, day-to-day basis. At the same time, the success of our California law firm has enabled us to have the financial and expert resources to try tough, complex personal injury cases. Our objective is to obtain the compensation our clients are entitled to — not more and certainly not less.

We know what is takes to handle difficult personal injury cases.

Since 1965, we have focused our efforts on personal injury — representing people who have been harmed physically or financially by others. Our attorneys do not represent big businesses.

  • We have a knowledge of medicine. Right after an accident, it can be difficult to understand the full extent of injuries. For example, when a client with slight injuries had a numbness in the right hand, we knew that was a sign of a herniated disk and would require enough compensation to cover surgery and pain and suffering. We understand the long and painful recovery from burn injuries, the uncertainty and confusion of brain and head injuries, the complications that can occur with fractures, and the life-long needs of spinal and back injury patients.
  • Our attorneys are experienced trial lawyers. We are often able to negotiate fair settlements early in a case, because the other side knows we have extensive trial experience. We have lawyers at Girardi | Keese with more than 100 trials to their credit. Eleven of our lawyers are members of ABOTA (American Board of Trial Advocates). Membership requires a minimum of 10 jury trials.
  • We have the resources to support complex cases. The more complicated the case, the more resources it requires. Because of our experience, we have a wide and deep network of experts we can call on for expert testimony about the current and future medical needs of our clients, the standard of care required in medical malpractice and birth injury cases, the economic impact of serious injuries, and the engineering and physics aspects of accidents.

We represent clients in truck crash and auto accident cases, clients injured because of dangerous premises, clients who have been harmed by dangerous products including pharmaceutical products and medical devices.

We welcome lawyer referrals as well as calls from the families of people who have been injured because of negligence or malpractice. As a Girardi | Keese client, you will have our full attention and concern. Contact us for an appointment. We represent clients in California and nationwide.
