Masterfully Obtaining Compensation for Many Different Injuries


Damage to your body, mind or property from an accident is a personal injury. In California, personal injuries can often result from vehicular accidents, defective products, slip and fall accidents, construction accidents — any of these may also lead to a wrongful death. To win a California personal injury case, the person who caused the injury must generally be found legally responsible and negligent — or “at fault” —  because he or she failed to exercise the appropriate amount of care under the circumstances.

After a serious injury, addressing your legal rights without effective counsel may be overwhelming. Jacob J. Rivas Attorney at Law works for you proficiently and compassionately to make sure you get the best compensation you merit with as little hassle to you as possible.


Victims may experience a range of personal injuries from the following accidents:

  • Medical malpractice — If a medical procedure went awry, you may be entitled to compensation.
  • Auto accidents — Any auto accident can leave a person shaken and confused. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, the driver may be liable to pay for your full and fair compensation.
  • Premises liability — If you were injured on someone else’s property due to a slippery floor, poor lighting or a broken step, you may be able to collect money damages for your injuries.
  • Dog bites — Dog bites can be emotionally traumatizing as well as physically debilitating, especially for a child victim.
