What to Look for When Hiring an Attorney


In Arizona and California, two big car cultures on the grow, you’re statistically more likely to be involved in some sort of motor vehicle accident or have some other legal concerns surrounding your automobile. Other injuries, like dog bites and slip and falls, are all-too common, and can be difficult to navigate with some kind of help. At RS Law Offices, we specialize in representing the kinds of people who deserve compensation for their losses at the hands of others.

Car and Truck Accidents

The more cars and trucks there are on the road, the more accidents are likely to happen. These accidents can be distracting and confusing, which is why you need an attorney to navigate the ins and outs of compensation for your losses.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are statistically very dangerous to ride, but that doesn’t exclude you from deserving representation if you’re involved in a motorcycle accident. Practicing safety is paramount, but there is a higher likelihood you’ll be involved in a motorcycle accident anyway.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

Whether there’s a motor vehicle involved or not, pedestrian
accidents are incredibly common. Motor vehicles can complicate things, but pedestrians tend to have the right of way. You should always “walk defensively,” but be aware that you may be eligible for compensation if you are involved in an accident as a pedestrian.

Ridesharing Accidents

Ride shares and new and fun, but they are also statistically more dangerous than driving your own car. Insurance issues are also murky, at best, so dealing with the aftermath of a ride sharing accident on your own can feel impossible.

Slip and Fall Injuries

One of the most common ways people can be hurt is by a slip and fall injury. One of the most commonly overlooked options in the case of such an injury is compensation. Much of the time, these falls are due to poorly maintained floors and other walking surfaces, none of which are your responsibility, as someone simply trying to get from point A to point B.

Dog Bite Injuries

If your neighborhood as dogs, there’s always a chance that one will get a little too excited or disturbed and bite you. The primary injury can be incredibly painful, and comes with a big risk of infection. All of the doctors visits can end up costing an arm and a leg, so you should seek compensation if you’ve been bitten by a dog.

Workers Compensation Claims

People get injured at work, but many employers will try to avoid workers compensation claims for the sake of insurance rates. You deserve the right to be represented if you are not presented with all the proper options after a work injury.

Lemon Law

laws are designed to protect you from being taken advantage of by being sold a bad car. If you’ve followed the rules but still have a dud, we can help.

Hiring an attorney is your best at navigating any of these situations. We have the experience and knowledge to make the process as easy for you as possible.
