Reviews for Rivers J Morrell

California Personal Injury Lawyers

We know you have a lot of questions. Some of the most common questions we are asked include:

Do I Have a Case?

How Much is My Case Worth?

Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

You have the legal right to recover financial compensation for injuries or loss of life due to the actions or inaction of at-fault parties and government entities. Many substantive studies, including analysis by the IRS and the Insurance Industry itself, have shown those who attempt to represent themselves in a personal injury claim receive substantially less than those who are represented by an experienced personal injury lawyer.  Your accident lawyer should provide insight into how they can help to ensure you receive full and fair compensation which far exceeds what you would achieve on your own.

What Should You Look For In a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Video How To Select a Personal Injury Attorney

RJM Rivers and Tuan

"I was very upset that it was necessary to litigate my auto injury case with the insurance company ... Rivers was able to resolve my case for a settlement amount that was much higher than I anticipated or expected. I would definitely recommend Rivers." - Injury Client

"You and your staff were extremely welcoming. After I called yesterday I realized I may get what I was praying for. I am not "looking for a pot of gold, but for some way to live my life as a single woman." - STD Client

"I first of all want to thank you ... for representing myself and my children so wonderfully ... you have always made me feel comfortable and most of all, have always been very straight forward with me regarding my case." - Injury Client

Do You Need An Attorney for Your Personal Injury Claim?

Yes. Studies by the IRS and insurance industry themselves have shown those who are represented by an attorney achieve a substantially higher settlement than those who represent themselves.

What Should You Look For in a Personal Injury Attorney?

Look for years of experience, several substantial trial verdicts, strong customer recommendations, awards from the legal industry such as ABOTA, Super Lawyers, an AV Rating, and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates. If an an injury attorney hasn't taken several cases to trial and a verdict you should find another who has. Avoid those who advertise that they settle their client's cases quickly.

What Should Someone Know if They've Been Injured by Another's Negligence?

You must see a physician for a thorough medical examination within 24 to 48 hours of the incident or motor vehicle accident, even if you think you aren't injured. Many injuries actually take days or weeks to present symptoms and if you don't see a physician within 48 hours the insurance company can reject an otherwise valid personal injury claim.

Why Does Trial Experience Matter in a Personal Injury Attorney?

Insurance companies pay settlements based upon risk. They face the greatest amount of risk at trial. If an injury attorney is not an experienced trial attorney the insurance companies know they can get them to accept far less than your case is worth, especially if they are trying to do so quickly.
