Experienced Southern California Personal Injury Attorneys

As a premier personal injury law firm in Riverside, CA, we’ve handled countless cases throughout the Inland Empire and most of California. They all boil down to a couple elements. We handle all types of injury or accident cases where you or a family member were injured due to the carelessness or negligence of another party. That could include the following:

  • Catastrophic Injuries

    Catastrophic Injuries

    These cases have the most life-altering types of injury: paralysis, amputations, loss of sight or hearing, severe burns, spinal cord injuries, burns, quadriplegia, paraplegia, and blindness. These are the types of cases where we’ll often arrange for a “day in the life” videographer team to document our clients day-to-day routine and illustrate the seriousness of their injury to the jury.

  • Wrongful Death

    Wrongful Death

    With more than four decades of experience in addressing wrongful death lawsuits, we will help determine potential heirs, contact appropriate insurance companies, and determine the responsible parties. Wrongful death cases are extremely emotionally challenging for the loved ones of the victims and can be complex when it comes to assessing financial losses. We approach each case with meticulous care and a comprehensive examination of the case particulars to secure rightful financial compensation for the loss of a family member.

  • Car Accidents

    Car Accidents

    With over 45 years handling auto and other accidents, we know how to approach your case because we’ve seen it before. Auto accidents are the most common ways that people are injured. We’ve handled countless cases involving big rigs & semi trucks, buses, public utility vehicles, trains and motorcycles.

  • Malpractice


    We regularly handle cases of professional malpractice caused by doctors, accountants, therapists or other professional service providers.

  • Workers’ Compensation

    Workers’ Compensation

    Attorney Richard Irwin is one of only a few local California State Bar Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialists and has over 40 years of experience.

  • Product Liability

    Product Liability

    These are cases that involve defective products, shoddy design, or products that failed during the course of normal use which resulted in an injury.

  • Premises Liability

    Premises Liability

    Although the most common type of premises liability is a “slip and fall”, this refers to any type of injury that occurred on someone else’s property.
