Leveling the playing field for work-related injury victims

"Fair protection for the vulnerable."

Isn't that, well, fair when it comes to outcomes for California workers who suffer on-the-job accidents and injuries and must turn to their employers and insurance companies for assistance in a great time of need

Put another way: Isn't any other outcome flatly unacceptable and unethical?

Our attorneys at the Modesto workers' compensation law firm of Rockwell, Kelly & Duarte, LLP, submit that such is the case. Moreover, we duly point out that company principals and insurers who challenge injured workers seeking fair protection by putting up obstacles that thwart them in their pursuit of just compensation may be acting illegally.

Candidly, we oppose that to the hilt and employ all our professional energies and acumen to fight against it. As we note on our website (from where the quoted language leading off this post appears), "We are passionate about defending the rights of individuals against employers and insurance companies that would seek to … deny valid claims."

Workers across Stanislaus County, the Central Valley and other regions spanning California work hard at their livelihoods. In doing so, they have a fair expectation that employers and the insurance companies they retain will also attend to their duties in good faith, one of which is the protection of workers who suffer accidents and injuries while on the job.

When that expectation is undermined by actions aimed to delay or deny just compensation for a claim, workers can turn to proven attorneys who routinely advocate diligently and with passion to level the playing field in workers' comp and work-related injury matters.

That is the central focus of our legal team at Rockwell, Kelly & Duarte, LLP.

We welcome your visit to our blog. Its objective is to provide readers with timely and educational content regarding work-related matters in California and to ensure them that diligent legal representation in accident and injury cases is readily available in the event they should ever need it.
