Personalizing Our Advocacy by Putting Ourselves in Your Shoes

Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys Product Liability · Car Accident Injuries

When you've survived a serious accident or lost a loved one in a horrible incident, you need someone who can fight for your rights and fight for what is fair. You need Daniel Rodriguez & Associates.

At Rodriguez & Associates we do our best to help guide you out of those dark places of despair to a place where you're able to start putting back together the pieces of your life. We help you focus on getting back on your feet by holding the wrongdoer accountable for everything he's taken from you. Our job is to make the wrongdoer pay for the wrong he or she has inflicted on you; your job is to focus on getting through the ordeal and getting back your life.

Firm founder and lead lawyer Daniel Rodriguez began life as a migrant farm worker. Growing up, he travelled with his family to and from Texas, California, Arkansas, and other states as they followed the crops from state to state. They were constantly on the move.

This lifestyle forced Rodriguez and his brothers and sisters to attend three to five schools each year. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because in doing so, he learned to quickly size up friends and foes - was that the school bully coming to beat him up or was it a student coming to welcome him? He developed the skills needed to build quick rapport, skills that would later become invaluable in showing and guiding jurors to making the right and fair decision in a case.

Our firm is now founded on the values that grew from that challenging, but yet honest upbringing:

  • We serve those who are in the most need: the victims of car and truck crashes, oil field accidents, defective and dangerous products, excessive force by over-aggressive police, and other incidents in which the people we trust harm us or our loved ones.
  • We provide the caring and empathetic service that can only come from someone who's been in the same situation as the person being served.
  • We are quick to hire the best and brightest people in the particular professional field that is required to win your case; people such as engineers and doctors. Together, we form a formidable team that protects the rights of our clients against insurance companies and their lawyers who will do everything possible to avoid being held accountable for the harm they have caused our clients.

As a Bakersfield law firm, we primarily serve local clients, but yet have also represented accident victims in Nevada, Arizona, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, New Mexico, Washington and other states. Regardless of your location, when you need a really good lawyer, contact Rodriguez & Associates.

Why Trial Experience Matters in Your Case

Trials are time-consuming, challenging, risky and expensive. Insurance companies, therefore, know that most lawyers would rather settle a case rather than take it to trial. Insurance companies also take advantage of those lawyers with no trial experience to settle cases by not offering top value for the harm their insured caused and is responsible for.

If insurers know a case won't go to trial, they have every reason to hoard their money by offering pennies on the dollar. However, if they know that the attorney they are up against has a strong history of trying and winning cases in trial, they will tend to dramatically increase their settlement offers. Therefore important for you to go with a law firm with a proven track record in court to achieve a full measure of justice and to obtain the full compensation you need and deserve. At Rodriguez & Associates, we believe in taking cases to court whenever necessary to protect clients' rights. Our law firm has obtained more multimillion-dollar personal injury trial verdicts than any other law firm in the southern San Joaquin Valley. We also hold the distinction of obtaining the highest personal injury verdict in the southern San Joaquin Valley. For more information, please contact our firm.
