Our team will do more than just send a letter to the insurance company. We will take every step necessary, including filing a lawsuit on your behalf, to ensure that you are “made whole” and not shortchanged by an insurance company’s skewed value of your personal injury claim and/or at the loss of a loved one.

- Bicycle collisions: The trial lawyers of RLG represent bicyclists injured on San Francisco and San Diego streets in personal injury and wrongful death claims.

The trial lawyers of RLG have the experience and skill to handle these kinds of serious injury cases.
- Elder abuse: Unfortunately, many nursing homes and secondary care facilities take advantage of the elderly’s declining mental and physical capacities and fail to provide the level of care that they must legally and ethically to provide. RLG’s knowledgeable trial lawyers have proven expertise in elder abuse and neglect cases. Let the lawyers of RLG assist you and your loved ones in receiving the compensation and closure you deserve.
- Trip-and-fall accidents: If you tripped and fell on another person’s property and you suffered an injury due to their negligence, you have the right to bring a personal injury claim against that property owner.

How We Can Assist You
Rencher Law Group, P.C., handles personal injury matters in a variety of ways. These include:
- Preserve Evidence
Finding and preserving evidence and documenting your injuries immediately following an accident. Even though you may be injured and in pain, it is important to do your best to document as much pertinent information concerning the incident as possible. Our team of lawyers will assist and guide you to preserve crucial evidence to strengthen your case.
- Physical Evidence
Physical evidence from a motor vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle accidents demonstrates the severity of impact and collision and/or the severity of the physical injuries sustained. Liability or who is at “fault” for an accident can be determined with the use of “physical evidence” – physical evidence is usually something that is taken directly from the scene.
The injury lawyers of RLG will assist and guide you in obtaining physical evidence to strengthen and bring your case alive. Evidence that you do not preserve or photograph shortly after the accident often gets lost, destroyed or altered by time. Accordingly, it is important to preserve any physical evidence related to your personal injury, including your damaged car or bike, or clothing in the same condition it was immediately following the accident. The trial lawyers of RLG will assist you in gathering crucial physical evidence.
- Take Photographs
If there is little or no physical evidence or for any reason, such evidence cannot be preserved, the next best option is to photograph it. Photographs, including through your cellphone, can prove invaluable to your personal injury claim. Photographs typically provide an accurate depiction of the scene, including the position of the vehicles, weather, lighting, traffic conditions and obstructions from various vantage points.
- Document The Accident Site
For accidents that take place away from your home, make sure to document the scene as soon as you can. Take pictures using your phone. If necessary, return to the scene of the accident after receiving medical treatment. This step is crucial for gathering evidence that you may otherwise have missed.
- Obtain A Police Report
After any moderate or serious car accident, pedestrian and/or bicycle accident, especially involving injuries, it’s essential to report the incident to the police. The police will conduct an accident investigation to determine the cause of the accident, which can be invaluable to prelitigation settlement discussions notwithstanding the fact that the report is usually inadmissible in court.
- Take Notes And Evidence Of Your Injuries
Photographs of your injuries establish the extent of your damages and will help tell the story of your pain.
Without question, medical records are key to establishing the extent of your injuries and, subsequently, the amount of compensation demanded. They are key in documenting the medical treatment and determining the nature and extent of your injuries, whether you were taken away from the scene by ambulance or sought treatment immediately.
How Much Will Hiring A California Personal Injury Attorney Cost?
One reason that injury victims hesitate to consult with an attorney is because they believe they cannot afford one. The good news is that you do not have to pay us out of pocket. We only collect payment if we win your case, and we only collect our money from the compensation we earn for you. Because of this payment system, you do not have to worry about finding the money to pay for us, because we are also pursuing that money in your compensation claim.
Use Your Time Wisely
While California law grants you two years from the date of your injury, you should not wait that long to file a claim. Evidence supporting your claim may deteriorate over time, and you may not be able to wait over two years to get the money you need. Instead of waiting longer than necessary, act today to build your personal injury claim.
