Pursuing Justice For Your Loved One

Best Orange County Wrongful Death Attorney Irvine Mission VIejoWith more than 40 years of experience in personal injury litigation and accidents involving fatality, attorney Rivers Morrell thoroughly understands the legal complexities of wrongful death cases.  For the first half of his career, Rivers Morrell represented most of the major insurance carriers.  He knows how they think, and the strategies they employ to reduce the amount they pay for wrongful death settlements.  This experience, combined with his extensive successful trial work ensures that your family will receive the best possible outcome in your case.

To prepare effective cases, we investigate the cause of the wrongful death. Any number of incidents can cause wrongful death, including motor vehicle accidents, construction accidents, slip-and-falls, and nursing home abuse.

We look into factors such as whether the car accident was caused by reckless drunk driving or whether the fatality was a result of dangerous conditions on another’s property or a failure to exercise safety precautions.

Let Us Take Care Of The Details

We understand the immediate concerns your family faces. In many cases, when a family has lost someone who contributes to the family’s finances, they may suddenly find themselves in financial distress. We will help manage your legal claim and help you look for other forms of income such as workers’ compensation, life insurance, advances from insurance companies or lawsuit loans.

Nothing can replace what you’ve lost. We will help you do the only thing you can — seek justice by holding the wrongdoers accountable and making them pay financially.
