Personal Injury

Giving you the edge you need to win full restitution

If another person’s actions or negligence caused you serious injury, you need an established law firm with a record of achievements to ensure a just award for damages. The Law Office of Robert B. Kopelson is a San Jose personal injury law firm with more than 42 years of dedicated legal service handling the complexities of all types of serious personal injury cases.

You have rights under the law that allow you to pursue a claim for personal injuries and suffering caused by the negligence of others. Having an adept and attentive attorney with years of negotiation and litigation achievements can give you the winning edge you need to succeed in a claim against individual or corporate defendants and their insurers. More importantly, diligent efforts in pretrial investigations and in the courtroom give you the peace of mind you need to begin your recovery from a traumatic injury.

Managing complex personal injury claims

Personal injury law covers a wide variety of accidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents, and any number of dangerous situations that may result in serious injuries. In the case of workplace injuries, you may have the right to file a claim separate from workers compensation in what is known as a third-party claim. I handle third-party claims and can guide you through the process.

Handling a successful personal injury or wrongful death case requires capable management of evidence, especially since the other side’s legal defense team is determined to prove a lack of liability and damages. With an experienced personal injury law firm on your side, you are not alone in your effort to claim damages:


  • I take the time to understand your case and your legal goals.
  • I organize a comprehensive effort to collect necessary evidence and documentation to present as a part of your case. This may include accident reports, medical records, health insurance documents and photographs of the accident scene.
  • I talk to witnesses and to medical experts to investigate the accident and your medical injuries further.
  • I apply my legal skill and experience to analyze your case and the potential liability of any parties involved.

My firm has received many positive reviews from clients and peers that speak to the capable, high-quality legal services provided to clients in and around San Jose who are seeking the best possible results.
