San Francisco Office Successfully Represents Property Owner and Settles Serious Personal Injury Case

Todd Angstadt and Elisa Marcaletti successfully represented a property owner in a case involving a plaintiff who was severely injured in a motorcycle accident when the client and others allegedly strung a rope across the road, “clothes lining” plaintiff. The plaintiff’s physical injuries necessitated a medically-induced coma, multiple plastic surgeries, and future plastic and oral surgeries, the cost of which exceeded a quarter of a million dollars. Additionally, the plaintiff sought damages for personal property damage, emotional distress, loss of household services and his wife’s loss of consortium, which increased plaintiffs’ alleged damages to over $1,200,000. Through the effective use of experts and discovery, we were able to successfully allocate the majority of liability to others, resulting in a settlement where plaintiff recovered significantly less than the cost of the medical expenses from our client.
