Irvine Injury Attorney with More than 40 Years Experience

If you are involved in a car, truck or motorcycle accident in Orange County contact an Irvine injury attorney with more than 40 years of experience.  My name is Rivers Morrell, and for the first 20 years of my work as an injury attorney I managed cases for major insurance carriers.  I know their tactics and the values they bring to each case.  The primary motive of an insurance company is to reduce the value of the claim to the lowest point possible, increasing profitability.  Many insurance adjusters work to gain your trust, however, it is important to remember that they are highly trained and skilled negotiators whose job it is to offer the minimum settlement possible on your case. We can provide dozens and dozens of examples of cases where the insurance company offered a minimal amount (or no settlement at all) only to wind up having to pay

NTSB Investigates a Fatal Bus Crash

As the NTSB investigates a fatal bus crash in Central California this past Tuesday that resulted in 4 deaths and injury to 23 others, many questions arise involving the driver of the bus and the history of safety for the bus company.  Of the 27 people on the bus itself, there were 4 fatal injuries, 7 serious injuries and an additional 16 who suffered injuries requiring treatment.  Who is responsible for the loss of life and injuries and what should the family of a victim do? The cause of the bus accident is still under investigation, as the driver of the bus is one of those who was seriously injured.  However, there is no doubt that the families of the 4 victims who suffered fatal injuries have a wrongful death claim under California law.  Those who were injured also have valid claims, and these cases will require a seasoned injury and wrongful

Los Angeles Accident Personal Injury Attorney

Los Angeles is the biggest city in California, with the highest number of automobile drivers which contributes to the highest number of motor vehicle accidents for any city in California. Also contributing to this statistic is the fact that many major freeways such as the 405, 5 and 101 that intersect through the city.  All these different factors and high population density result in daily traffic accidents.  If you are injured in a car accident in LA we invite you contact a Los Angeles accident personal injury attorney with more than 40 years of experience. At the Law Firm of Rivers J. Morrell we had a recent Los Angeles motor vehicle accident case with a client who was minding their own business commuting home from work, when they were struck from behind by an out of control speeding car. The force of the collision caused them to also strike the

What to Look for in a Los Angeles Area Personal Injury Attorney

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident how do you know what to look for in a Los Angeles area personal injury attorney or firm?  There are so many attorneys out there, how can you know which one is best for you? We created a short animated video that helps you to know what to look for in a personal injury lawyer.  The key is experience and a successful track record of trial verdicts.  I can hear the question coming “doesn’t every lawyer have successful trial verdicts?”  No, unfortunately many personal injury lawyers have never taken a case before a jury, let alone achieved several multi-million dollar results.  When an insurance company knows your attorney has a proven track record in trial, they know your case will wind up in front of a jury if they do not negotiate in good faith.  If they do

Hold Hollywood Sexual Harassment Perpetrators Accountable in a Civil Lawsuit

There have been hundreds of allegations of sexual harassment leveled in recent weeks against Hollywood and Los Angeles executives, producers, directors and other people of influence.  It is important for victims to know they can hold Hollywood sexual harassment perpetrators accountable in a civil lawsuit based upon California law.  Names such as Harvey Weinstein, James Tobak and Roy Price have filled the news in the past few weeks.  Those who have been violated by sexual harassment and sexual assault can hold those responsible financially accountable in a civil lawsuit. My name is Rivers Morrell, and after more than 40 years of work in injury law and civil lawsuits I can tell you it is absolutely possible to hold Hollywood sexual harassment perpetrators accountable in a civil lawsuit for what they have done to you.  In many cases, the companies they represent also bear responsibility for what has happened.  These cases

The Statute of Limitations May Not Apply in Some of the Current Sexual Assault Cases

It may surprise some of the stars who have come forward to accuse Hollywood’s directors, producers and other actors that the statute of limitations may not apply in some current sexual assault cases.  While some attorneys may believe the statute is hard and fixed at two years, the Law Firm of Rivers J. Morrell has successfully defeated motions to dismiss based upon the statute.  We have gone on to obtain successful outcomes for our clients in these cases. If there has been a settlement agreement the case is concluded.  However, if there was no settlement and something of value was given to make up for a sexual assault there may be a way to successfully pursue the case.  For example, in one case the defendant offered to pay some of the medical bills and other expenses associated with the incident.  This may apply if something of value was given as
