California Injured Tourist & Travelers Attorney

California is “everybody’s favorite state” and California is a mecca for international and domestic tourists.

Unfortunately, US Citizens and foreign visitors often suffer serious injuries during their visits and need to be aware of what they can do to be compensated under the law.

The legal system in California allows you to retain a lawyer on a contingency fee basis.  In other words, the attorney advances the costs of filing a lawsuit or making a claim and waits for his fee until the case is successfully resolved by settlement, arbitration or jury trial.  The system is unique in the world because it allows you to seek justice without having to hire a lawyer by paying a large retainer or paying him by the hour.  If the case is unsuccessful, the attorney gets paid nothing for the costs he has advanced or the time he has spent.  A fee is paid only if the case is successful.

The Law Offices of Gary A Kessler is well qualified to represent your interests as an international client.  We have represented clients from around the world, including Europe and Asia.  We have many international legal contacts.

We speak Spanish and Italian and obtaining translators for other languages is not a problem.               

The Internet makes it a lot easier for us to represent international clients.

We have found that foreign visitors to California are often injured in vehicular collisions in rental cars, public transportation including taxis and Tour Buses, cable cars, bus collisions, amusement park rides, helicopter and airplane crashes and in a variety of recreational activities including biking, skiing, boating and ballooning.   These injuries happen from the Napa Valley to the Monterey/Carmel area to Yosemite National Park to the Lake Tahoe and Southern California area.

The Law Offices of Gary A Kessler is a leader in trial technology and we have developed ways of reducing the cost of developing cases and maximizing their value to you the client.  For example, we recently took depositions of foreign doctors and witnesses by videotape and that is another way to save costs while presenting the best evidence.

It is very important that you contact the Law Offices of Gary A Kessler just as soon as you can so the proper investigation can be done and the evidence can be preserved.  We will be happy to explain how we can help you preserve your rights and seek just compensation for your injuries. We look forward to hearing from you in the near future!
