Personal Injury

Attorneys at Guichard, Teng & Portello are compassionate and care about our clients who have sustained catastrophic injuries.  We are highly regarded in legal and business communities for our passionate, professional and ethical approach to personal injury litigation. Cases we take stand on their own; we do not need to artificially inflate claims.

Our attorneys approach every case with the intent of going to trial and realizing full compensation for our clients; in the event the case is settled, the benefits of this positive, aggressive approach are reflected in the settlement’s outcome.

Catastrophic injuries are life altering injuries – injuries that affect the quality of lives and the quality of future earnings. They vary from case to case, depending on a variety of factors including the age and occupation of the injured, and the degree of injury.

  • If a person’s injury is so severe as to prohibit a return to a previous occupation, that is life changing.
  • If a person’s injury is so severe as to affect future earnings, that is life changing.
  • If a child or young person’s injury is so severe as to affect the quality of life, that is life changing.

There are no easy answers to the question, “What is a case worth?” Much of the answer is driven by economic damages – what are the medical bills? What are the lost wages? But non-economic damages are important, highly emotional components, as well. What is the loss of an eye or an arm or a leg worth? What is the pain, suffering, and inconvenience worth?

In order to best determine the merits and weight of a case, we offer complimentary consultations to gather as much information as we can about the details of the injury and the objectives of the claim. We offer sound advice and feedback to determine if we’re in the best position to help clients, and for clients to determine if we’re the best firm to help them.

We have offices in Walnut Creek and Davis for the convenience of our clients from Walnut Creek, Concord, San Ramon, Oakland, Davis, Sacramento, Vacaville, Woodland, Dixon, and other cities around the Bay Area and greater Sacramento region.
