Our personal injury attorneys protect our clients’ rights and fight to help them obtain fair compensation for the emotional and physical consequences of other people’s negligence. Attorney Tania Rivas and her team at Rivas Law Group tirelessly develop strategies to deal with clients’ mounting medical expenses, lost work time, and long term rehabilitation. Injury victims who fight their cases without effective legal aid — or who trust that insurers will just “do the right thing” — often encounter legal and financial struggles later. To overcome such frustrating outcomes, our firm negotiates effectively, leverages the law and works passionately and creatively on behalf of our clients.
We provide quality legal services in three primary areas:
Car accidents happen in just seconds, but they leave people broken and disabled for years – sometimes for the rest of their lives. Our team oversees the investigatory and forensic processes after accidents, helps to assess and prove liability, and sets compelling legal strategies. We negotiate assertively with insurance companies, compelling them to play fair and meet their obligations to claimants.
Due to basic physics, riders face a severe disadvantage in collisions. These accidents leave riders and passengers facing chronic pain, traumatic brain injuries and other disabilities, even when everyone follows proper safety protocols and wears helmets and other safety gear. Poor visibility, driver inattention and bad road conditions factor into these types of crashes, and untangling who (or what) might be to blame takes careful legal and forensic work. To get a grip on how to obtain fair compensation for damages, injuries and lost work time, you need compassionate, strategic legal assistance. Our team delivers for our clients.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. If a building owner, landlord or other third party created or allowed the hazardous conditions that caused your fall, that person or entity must pay damages. To prove liability in these cases, attorneys hire experts to investigate the circumstances of the fall and injury and possibly re-create the scene. The sympathetic, results-focused team at the Rivas Law Group supports clients, so they recover without stressing about mounting medical expenses.
Due to their sheer size and mass, semis and large commercial trucks often cause outsized damages and fatal injuries. Clients need experienced representation in order to protect themselves and obtain complete compensation for significant medical bills, lost work time and productivity, and other costs. Our truck accident attorneys have the tools to drill down to determine exactly how the accident occurred and to hold all responsible parties appropriately liable.
Property Damage Disputes
When a client submits a property damage claim, he or she likely believes that the insurance company will accept it at face value and act in good faith. Unfortunately, if the insurer disputes the amount or outright denies the claim, the claimant often must fight aggressively just to obtain a fair result. Our competent property damage dispute attorneys pursue fair compensation and justice for our clients.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 1.4 million people across the nation suffer brain injuries annually. These injuries permanently affect their futures, changing their lives forever, restricting them from working and enjoying their relationships. They also lead to staggering long term medical and therapy-related costs. Our brain injury lawyers diligently protect the rights of clients in these serious cases.
When an individual steps onto someone’s private or business property, he or she expects that the premises are safe. Property owners have legal responsibilities to upkeep their properties, so that visitors and patrons aren’t injured. Our premises liability attorneys hold responsible property owners liable after these types of injuries.
In a wrongful death claim, the survivors and loved ones suffer a double loss – the untimely death of a family member and sting from the fact that the accident might have been preventable. Our wrongful death lawyers empathize with the pain experienced by these loved ones and take action on their behalf to get fair and thorough compensation for lost productivity, medicals costs and other damages.
Negligent security claims follow when owners fail to foresee and prevent criminal actions due to poor or inadequate security systems. For example, providing an extra guard to patrol the premises in an especially dangerous neighborhood might have prevented a burglary or assault. Our negligent security attorneys work diligently on behalf of clients to prove the property owner’s liability and obtain damages if security failure indirectly caused harm to a visitor.
