Firm founder and lead personal injury lawyer Daniel Rodriguez began life as a migrant farm worker. Growing up, he traveled 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 a quick rapport with almost any individual.

These skills would later become invaluable in showing and guiding jurors to make the right and fair decision in an injury claim case. From the moment you reach out to our accident lawyers, we work diligently to pursue justice. Our legal team explains your legal options and helps you seek compensation, so you can make a financial recovery. With experience across a range of personal injury cases, you can trust that Rodriguez & Associates is ready to represent you.

Type of Cases We Handle

No Matter what type of injury you’ve experienced, we can help. The following are some of the most common areas of personal injury law that we handle:

Motor Vehicle Accidents: Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injuries in the United States. They are often caused by speeding, texting while driving, or failing to signal when turning. The negligent driver can be responsible for the victim’s injuries and losses.

Wrongful Death: Wrongful death is a type of lawsuit filed when a person dies due to another’s negligence or wrongful act. The family members of the deceased may file a wrongful death claim against an individual or entity responsible for their loved one’s death. These accidents can occur in many circumstances, but most commonly are a result of car accident claims and workplace accidents.

Brain Injury: Brain injuries can range from mild concussions all the way up to severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI). These types of personal injury cases often involve complex medical and legal issues because it can be difficult for victims and their families to prove who was at fault for an accident resulting in brain damage.

Oilfield Accidents: Oilfield accidents occur when workers are injured on oil fields due to unsafe working conditions or faulty equipment. An employer or another party, like a maintenance technician, could be responsible for the victim’s injuries.

Defective Products: Defective product cases occur when a product is sold with manufacturing defects or design flaws which make it unreasonably dangerous for use as intended by its manufacturer or seller.

Police Misconduct/Brutality: Police misconduct/brutality includes any illegal action taken by law enforcement agents against civilians which results in physical harm or emotional distress. No one should ever have to experience this, but it is, unfortunately, more common than it should be.

Premises Liability: Premises liability is a form of legal action taken that seeks compensation from property owners whose negligent acts resulted in visitors suffering physical harm. Common scenarios of premises liability include slips and falls, swimming pool accidents, animal attacks, and fires.
