Truck Accident Lawyer
Motor vehicle collisions involving passenger vehicles and big-rigs can result in devastating, life-threatening injuries or fatalities, significant property damage, and other losses. Survivors of truck accidents are often faced with a long road to recovery that requires extensive medical treatment. During this time, the victim and their family may be struggling to make ends meet due to steep medical bills, a totaled vehicle, and other types of economic and non-economic damages. At MVP Accident Attorneys, our truck accident lawyers understand the unique challenges and state and federal regulations involved in truck accident cases.
Truck accident claims are very complex to investigate for a number of reasons. First, the semi-trucks and trailers are often covered by more than one insurance policy, which can further complicate the negotiations process. Additionally, there is often more than one party liable for this type of catastrophic accident. Multiple parties that can be held liable in truck crash claims include the truck driver, trucking company, company responsible for loading the cargo, person or entity responsible for maintaining the truck, and the manufacturer of truck or truck parts. State and federal laws also come into play, which is why the attorney you choose must have knowledge of the laws that govern the trucking industry.
At MVP Accident Attorneys, our truck accident lawyers have extensive experience investigating big rig accidents and will explore every avenue of compensation to ensure you receive the settlement you’re owed for the harm you have suffered.
Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle riders have a reputation for their careless, reckless riding habits, but in most cases, negligent drivers are often to blame for the majority of motorcycle collisions. When a motorcyclist is struck by a vehicle, they can suffer severe injuries that can require months or years of ongoing medical treatment, leaving them out of work and struggling to make ends meet. At MVP Accident Attorneys, our motorcycle accident lawyers have extensive experience representing accident victims and know how to prove negligence.
The legal team at MVP Accident Attorneys will investigate your accident, gather evidence, work with experts to identify all liable parties, and accurately value your claim. We’re familiar with the biases that motorcycle riders often face and will not let aggressive claims adjusters intimidate you or pressure you to accept a lowball settlement offer.

Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Riding a bike can be a great way to commute, stay in shape, and enjoy the weather. Unfortunately, even the most cautious cyclist is at risk of being struck by a negligent driver. Bicycle riders have little protection against the road and passenger vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds. When a cyclist is struck by a passenger vehicle they may suffer life-changing injuries, or in some cases, death. At MVP Accident Attorneys, our bicycle accident lawyers know how devastating the aftermath of a bicycle accident is.
After this type of accident, the cyclist may require multiple surgeries, months of rehabilitation, and struggle with painful, debilitating injuries that can prevent them from returning to work. If you were struck by a negligent motorist while riding your bike in Moreno Valley, our bicycle accident lawyers will advocate for your rights and help you recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. We understand the unique dynamics of bicycle accidents and the challenges victims face.
Slip and Fall Lawyer
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere on public or private property. These accidents are often caused by dangerous or hazardous conditions, such as broken stairs, missing handrails, wet floors, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, etc. When a negligent property owner fails to make repairs, maintain their property, or resolve dangerous conditions on their property, and a person is seriously injured as a result, the accident victim may be entitled to compensation.
If you were injured in a fall that occurred on someone’s property, you must speak with a slip and fall lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys as soon as possible. Investigating the accident before the negligent property owner has the chance to repair damages or destroy evidence, is crucial. Our skilled legal team knows what it takes to investigate this type of accident and prove liability. We will build a strong case that holds the property owner responsible for their negligence and ensure you receive the settlement you deserve for all accident-related damages.
Dog Bite Lawyer
When a person is bitten by a dog that was not secured on a leash, was in a yard that was not property secured, or the dog was in a public place and attacked someone unprovoked, the negligent dog owner must be held responsible for the dog bite victim’s injuries and other damages.
If you were attacked by a dog and suffered injuries, you must take legal action as soon as possible. With a dog bite lawyer from MVP Accident Attorneys on your side, you can rest assured that you will receive the compensation you deserve. Being attacked or bitten by a dog can cause physical and emotional trauma, resulting in steep medical bills, lost time at work, and other losses.
Our dog bite lawyers are familiar with state bite laws and know what it takes to prove liability and hold the negligent dog owner responsible for your injuries, lost wages, and other damages. Our experienced dog bite lawyers will pursue a claim against the responsible party, seeking compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages resulting from the incident. We will not back down until you receive every penny of compensation you’re owed.
Rideshare Accident Lawyer
Accidents involving rideshare services like Uber or Lyft can be complex due to insurance coverage issues. Whether you’re a passenger in a rideshare vehicle or your vehicle was hit by a rideshare driver, you must determine what driving phase the motorist was in, whether they were actively using the app, transporting a passenger, etc. The driving phase can determine whether the rideshare driver’s personal insurance provider, the rideshare company’s insurance provider, or both, will be held liable. Because a rideshare driver is not considered an employee of Uber or Lyft, but an independent contractor, often, their personal insurance provider will be held liable for damages. However, in certain circumstances, if the driver’s insurance policy does not cover the entirety of the accident victim’s damages, the rideshare company’s insurance provider will also be held responsible.
At MVP Accident Attorneys, our rideshare accident lawyers know how to investigate this type of complex accident, are familiar with insurance law and rideshare policies and will go above and beyond to ensure you receive every penny of compensation you deserve.

What Can a Personal Injury Attorney Do For You?
At MVP Accident Attorneys, our personal injury attorneys provide personalized attention, support, and guidance throughout the entire legal process.
Here's how our personal injury lawyers can help you:
Filing Insurance Claim Paperwork
We will assist you in filing insurance claims and ensure that all necessary documentation is accurately completed and submitted within the required timeframes.
Investigation and Evidence Gathering
Our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation of the accident, gathering evidence such as
- Accident reports
- Witness statements
- Medical records
- Employment records
- Video surveillance
- Photos of injuries, property damage, and the accident scene
- Phone records
And any other relevant documents that can support your claim
Assessing the Value of Your Claim
Before entering into negotiations, it's essential to accurately assess the value of your claim. Our personal injury attorneys will carefully evaluate various factors, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, future medical needs, and other damages incurred as a result of the accident. This thorough assessment allows us to establish a reasonable settlement range and effectively advocate for your best interests.
Presenting the Demand Package
To initiate settlement negotiations, our attorneys will prepare a demand package outlining the details of your case, including liability, injuries sustained, medical treatment received, and the impact on your life. This package will present a persuasive argument for the compensation you deserve, and we will ensure that all essential aspects of your claim are clearly communicated to the insurance company.
Settlement negotiations play a crucial role in personal injury cases. After filing a personal injury claim, the insurance company will typically assign a claims adjuster to evaluate your case and determine a potential settlement amount. This is where the expertise of a personal injury attorney becomes invaluable. At MVP Accident Attorneys, our skilled negotiators have extensive experience in settlement negotiations and will work tirelessly to secure fair compensation for our clients.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injuries?
Generally, under California law, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury. This means that you have two years from the date of the accident or the date you became aware of the injury to file a lawsuit. If you fail to initiate legal action within this timeframe, you may lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries.
It's important to note that there are exceptions to the general statute of limitations:
In some cases, injuries may not be immediately apparent. If an injury is not discovered until a later date, the statute of limitations may be extended. California follows the "discovery rule," which allows the two-year time limit to begin when the injury is discovered or should have been discovered with reasonable diligence.
If the injured person is a minor (under the age of 18) at the time of the injury, the statute of limitations is extended. Minors have two years from the date they turn 18 to file a personal injury claim.
If your injury was caused by the negligence of a government entity or its employees, special rules apply. You must file a government claim within six months of the date of the injury, and if the claim is denied, you have six months from the date of denial to file a lawsuit.
Medical malpractice cases in California have a slightly different statute of limitations. Generally, a medical malpractice lawsuit must be filed within one year from the date you knew about the injury or should have reasonably known about the injury. Accident victims may have up to three years from the date of the injury if there were extenuating circumstances that prevented the accident victims from discovering their injuries sooner.
