Our personal injury team achieved a $735,000 recovery on behalf of a 42-year-old woman struck by a DeSoto taxicab while she was crossing The Embarcadero in a marked crosswalk. Our attorneys hired accident reconstruction engineers to prove that the cab was exceeding 50 miles per hour when it struck our client. The cab driver originally claimed that a phantom car struck our client first, knocking her into the cab. The cab driver also claimed that the injured woman was crossing against a red light. Our attorneys proved otherwise.
