Tireless advocates for the injured and disabled on the Central Coast

If you have suffered an injury and need legal assistance, Rucka, O’Boyle, Lombardo & McKenna is a firm to consider. You’ll find our attorneys are:

  • Experienced — With nearly 200 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys have the skills and expertise to handle virtually any type of injury or disability. Seven lawyers on our staff are certified by the California Board of Legal Specialization as Specialists in Workers’ Compensation Law.
  • Reputable — As a testament to the firm’s standing in the local legal community, a number of our attorneys are AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® for their high ethical standards and professional ability.
  • Dedicated — In addition to working tirelessly for our clients on specific cases, our team has displayed leadership for the large cause of injured workers’ rights. Five of our attorneys have served as President of the California Applicants’ Attorneys Association, which promotes legal advocacy, public policies and professional education related to injured workers’ rights.

Our firm has the resources to take your case all the way, a fact that is critical to keep in mind. Many attorneys feel financial pressure to settle cases rather than go to trial. Insurance companies know how to take advantage of that situation, so the settlement rarely reflects the real value of the case. But, because our firm is long-established and financially sound, you can be confident that we’re focused on your interests, not ours.

Fighting to deliver positive results in California injury cases

The duty of an injury attorney is to secure the maximum amount of compensation and benefits possible for the client. We take that duty very seriously in all cases related to:

  • Workers’ compensation — We help injured workers access benefits for work-related accidents and illnesses. We appeal denied workers’ comp claims, resolve disputes and settle disability claims. We also assert negligence claims against third parties whenever the facts support legal action.
  • Personal injury — Our attorneys represent victims of car, truck, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and products liability injuries. We also represent next of kin in wrongful death lawsuits following fatal accidents.
  • Social Security disability — If you have had your application for Social Security disability benefits denied, the problem could be an incomplete file or an insufficient description of your disabling condition. We can help amend your filing and appeal the decision at every level up to federal court.

We take all cases on a contingency fee basis, so you never have to pay upfront legal fees. You only pay us after your case settles or you obtain an award at trial.
