Auto Accident Cases
Ripley Law Deftly Handles Auto Accidents
Data from the NHTSA indicates more than 22,000 people are killed, and approximately 2,000,000 are injured, in passenger automobile accidents every year in the United States. Of those accident victims, 10% become disabled.
Quite often, accidents are caused by someone’s negligence in rear ending another car, running a red light or a stop sign, failing to look in all directions before making a turn or entering a street, making an unsafe lane change, using a cell phone or texting while driving, or worst of all, using drugs or alcohol while operating an automobile.
Bike Accident Cases
Experience Handling Bike Accident Cases
Motor vehicles and bicycles are bound by the same laws. Bicyclists have the right to be on the same road as motorists. In many cases, these laws governing the road are simply rooted in common sense. Yet, despite these common sense laws and rules, drivers still ignorebicyclists’ right to the road, injuring or even killing the bicyclist.
Involving Motor Vehicles
Del Mar Lawyer assists Motorist involved Bicycle accident Victims
Cars, however, are not the only motor vehicles that injure bike riders in California. Trucks, SUVs, 18-wheelers, buses and other commercial vehicles — all of them can cause a bike injury.
Construction Site Accidents
La Jolla, CA Personal Injury Lawyer
Ripley Law handles Building Site Injuries
Construction sites usually involve many different kinds of trade working at the same time on a project. This can make a personal injury case resulting from a construction site accident more complex. It is important to investigate as soon as possible after an accident to determine if the general contractor, one or more subcontractors or the property owner should be held responsible for injuries.
Ripley Prosecutes/Defends Dog Bite Cases
There are, according to USA Today (May, 2012), more than 78,000,000 dogs in the United States, one for every four persons. Although the vast majority of those dogs are good, safe pets, there are some that are dangerous. Unfortunately, there is unpredictability to whether a dog is safe or not. Children are particularly at risk of being attacked or bitten by a dog, in part because children do not appreciate warning signs and may not know when to back away. Also, dogs can be unsure as to how to interact with children, and can be provoked to attack or defend their space or toys. Collectively these factors account for more than 60% of dog bite cases as involving children as victims. Another contributing factor is that children are smaller than adults, and have a lesser ability to defend themselves.

Slip/Trip & Fall Accidents

Property Owners, Landlords and Leasing Agents in California are responsible to make sure that their property is clean, habitable and without unsafe or hazardous conditions. When a property owner or property manager does not keep their property safe or free of hazardous conditions, or if they fail to warn people on their property of unsafe or dangerous conditions, they can be held liable for falls or other accidents that occur on their property.
Personal Injury (PI) Cases
Truck Accident Litigation
Legal Expertise with Large vehicle cases
Of all motor vehicle accidents, truck accidents are the most lethal. When smaller cars or motorcycles are involved in a collision with a large truck, the results can be deadly. The weight of most trucks is substantial, and is often the reason that people involved in truck accidents sustain significant, and sometimes fatal, injuries.
