Case Results

At RLG, our lawyers have reached favorable settlements and won many verdicts for our clients in a wide variety of legal matters.

For example:

Settlements and Verdicts

Jane Doe v. Daly City

We recently represented a plaintiff after another law firm was no longer interested in her case against the City of Daly City in a personal injury matter arising out of an automobile accident with an on-duty patrolman who admitted that he was engaged in distracted driving including looking at his onboard computer. Interestingly, the police report revealed that the officer was negligent but the City refused to settle the clear liability matter requiring our office to file suit. The case was referred to arbitration, and the City eventually settled just prior to the arbitration date.

This case represents RLG's resolve and determination to protect our client's interest and gain rightful compensation for our clients notwithstanding other law firm's disinterest.

Defendant John Doe

We successfully defended a client with the dismissal of a criminal case, restraining order with the award of attorney's fees, and the dismissal of a civil case involving defamation, slander, and intentional interference with business relations. The case involved a contentious relationship between two former business associates to which our client was associated with one party to the relationship. That individual, through her counsel, were determined to involve our client in the other party's dispute due to our client's financial stability and resources.

RLG attorneys worked feverishly on behalf of our client, exposing the baseless claims and assertions and undermining the credibility of the claimant, ultimately achieving a resolution and dismissal of all matters. Due to the efforts of RLG, our client can finally put these matters behind him and go back to living his life as existed prior to this litigation.

Defendant Jane Doe v. Insurance Company

We successfully defended our client, a Google employee, against a greedy insurance company that filed an action against her in subrogation arising out of a fire damage claim.

Our client relocated to San Francisco and unwittingly entered into a unilateral lease agreement which required her to be immediately insured without a grace period. While moving in with the help of friends and associates, a personal item was placed near an outdated, dilapidated and unsafe stove, which ultimately caused a fire within the unit. The owner's of the unit sought excessive compensation for the repair of the small studio, which ultimately caused their insurance to go after our client in subrogation.

After RLG attorneys got involved in the case, we were successful in exposing the comparative fault of the unit owner's and excessive insurance claims. The parties reached a settlement in which our client paid a cost of defense settlement, which was de minimis compared to what the insurance company sought ($200,000 in damages).

This case represents our unwilting confidence and resolve to challenge greedy insurance companies who choose to go after somone after they are contractually obligated to pay for damages as a result of an accident.

Recently Settled Cases

Plaintiff v. Elderly Transportation Service

We recently resolved a case involving the negligent transportion of a loving grandmother in the twightlight of her life after years of service to her community as a nurse. The grandmother was being transported to a medical appointment when the driver drove recklessly over a speed bump causing her to suffer a fractured back. Although our client had multiple preexisting medical conditions causing squimish attorneys to turn down the case, our office could not stand idol since the injury confined her to a wheel chair.

Our office took on the task securing her a high six figure settlement so her and family can enjoy the rest of days without the financial burden of this incident.

This case represents why our office should be considered before many of the paid for "first page" personal injury attorneys, some of whom, care less about what they can do for the client and more about what the client can do for them. We will continue to fight on behalf of elderly plaintiffs and will not allow this case to affect our resolve to make insurance companies pay, even though someone may have had a preexisting injury.

Plaintiff v. Large Medical Treatment Provider

We recently resolved a medical malpractice case against a large medical treatment provider for an elderly woman who was in an anti-coagulated state, a contraindication for a colonoscopy involving a polypectomy wherein the gastroenterologist perforated her colon. The physician and medical treatment provider denied liability notwithstanding medical literature to the contrary, evidence of lack of informed consent regarding the increased risk of the procedure, and medical expert testimony to the contrary.

Notwithstanding the elderly woman's infirmed state, the medical facility pressed towards arbitration until the attorneys at RLG in consultation with their client determined that the proceedings would put their client at a medical risk and therefore agreed to settled the client.

This case represents why medical malpractice reform should be promulgated forthwith including mandatory arbitration provisions. We will continue to fight on behalf of medical malpractice plaintiffs and will not allow this case to affect our resolve for reform and justice for victims of medical malpractice.

Family Doe v. Juvenile Doe Defendants

Represented family of Does v. Juvenile Doe defendants in a case arising out of a group assault and battery of a young man and his sister for the group’s perceived bias against the young man’s sexual orientation in violation of his Constitutional Rights and California Civil Code sections 51.7 & 52.1 that recently promulgated.

The group of five juvenile defendants traveled to the family’s home under the guise of retrieving a videogame and attempted to lure the young man out of the house but when they were unsuccessful, forced the door open and pulled him onto the porch where they assaulted and battered him while they shouted homophobic slurs. The sister alerted to the beating, ran to her brother's aid putting her own safety at risk from these bullies, while members of the group threatened to return that night and break into the family home.

RLG attorneys acted swiftly on behalf of the family, requesting that the defendants’ parents accept liability and defendants’ homeowner’s insurance company provide medical coverage and damages for the young man’s injuries, which included a fractured eye orbit, misaligned jaw, chipped teeth, and injury to his cervical spine.

Over a prolonged and arduous process, the insurance company rejected the claim until our office commenced litigation. After years of costly litigation, four of the defendants settled the case for a six-figure settlement shortly before the original trial date. The one remaining defendant interestingly, the primary defendant, refused to settle the clear liability matter notwithstanding our client’s long-term and devastating injuries including years of psychotherapy, pain management, dental treatment, and long term treatment for his neck including Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy.

As a result of the bullying, the family was forced to move, moving out of the state but with our guidence forged ahead to ensure that thier son had a secure future including medical coverage for his life long injuries.

This matter settled in the high six figures with each and every defendant contributing based on their level involvement. Our client has since go on to a straight "A" college student and although he is no longer qualified for a military officer career has now turned his focus to getting an Aerospace Engineeing degree.

This case represents RLG's dedication to protecting individuals and families against the devasting affects of bullying and homophobia have not just on the victim but on his or her family. We stood up to the bully culture and won! RLG is proud to have served a family and the entire community which this horrific incident occured.
