Decades of Experience

Getting hurt on the job is like being tossed into a maze without a map. This is especially true in the railroad industry. People who earn their livelihood through the skilled trades are devastated when a serious injury occurs. They need real guidance and advice that comes from decades of experience.

That’s where Roven Camp comes in.

Fighting for Workers’ Rights

Throughout John’s 40 years of experience with injury cases, he has learned the ways of insurance companies and rail carriers. He understands how frustrating it is to realize that insurance company systems are set up to minimize claim costs rather than help injured people. 

The truth is that there is no “magic bullet” to getting a client a great result in an injury case – whether by settlement or in a courtroom. It all comes down to experience, hard work, and trust. That’s what John Roven and Kevin Camp have worked to build with Roven Camp.

A Legacy of Hard Work

John’s grandfather was a hard-working man his whole life, but he never got to fulfill his dream of becoming a lawyer. He raised John to believe in the dignity of work and the right of all working people to be treated with fairness. When it came time to choose his path in life, going into personal injury law was the clear choice.

As passionate as John was about his career, law school was tough. He was broke, and when he wasn’t studying, John took on odd jobs and donated plasma at the blood bank. Those years taught him that he needed to play the hand he had been dealt and build from there. Realizing the importance of resilience and resourcefulness, John channeled that determination to advocate for fairness and justice for his clients.

Empathy in Action: Rebuilding Lives

In every case, there is a moment when our client realizes that all is not lost and that there is actually a path forward. Our job as personal injury attorneys is to help them see that path and bring the map into focus. We strive to ensure our clients know where they stand and what their options are at all times, helping them rebuild their family’s emotional and financial security. 

Advocating for the working wounded can be a challenge, but there is no other field of law that offers such a direct way to help families heal – and no other field of law John would rather be a part of.
