$982,211.00 RESULT: $532,211.00, VERDICT and $450,000.00 SETTLEMENT Dangerous Roadway. This case involved an experienced Marin cyclist who was hit by a car making a left-hand turn onto the U.S. 101 on-ramp from Casa Buena Drive in the Town of Corte Madera. The poorly designed intersection lacked both a stop sign for drivers turning left onto the freeway and adequate signage to alert drivers of the presence of cyclists. As a result, the cyclist was hit and suffered a severe brain injury which left her in a coma for a week. A trial was completed against the uninsured driver who struck her which resulted in a $532,211.00 verdict, in favor of the cyclist. In addition, the Town of Corte Madera agreed to settle the matter for $400,000.00. An additional $50,000.00 settlement was reached with the bicyclist’s insurance company.
$4,265,000.00 SETTLEMENTDangerous Roadway. The City and County of San Francisco paid $4,265,00.00 to the parents of a thirteen-year-old boy who suffered permanent brain damage after being hit by a car on his way to school at the intersection of San Jose Avenue and Niagara Street in San Francisco. Despite prior complaints by residents of the neighborhood and a representative of the Board of Supervisors about the danger the intersection posed to pedestrians due to the lack of a stop sign for drivers traveling on San Jose Avenue, the City failed to take any action to modify the intersection to make it safe for pedestrians. A lawsuit was filed against the City asserting that the intersection was a dangerous condition of public property. A lawsuit was also filed against the driver. Following the filing of the lawsuit, the City installed a stop sign at the intersection.
$3,100,000.00 VERDICT Boating Accident. This case involved a child who was ejected from a boat when two speeding boats collided. The operator of the second boat was drinking at the time of the collision, causing him to steer his boat directly into the path of the boat on which the child was a passenger. The child suffered serious injuries to her face and head.
Insider knowledge of the insurance companies
I especially appreciated Shaana’s insider knowledge of the insurance companies, and her experience handling accidents involving cyclists. She achieved the best outcome possible for my case, and importantly invested a lot of effort even when it wouldn’t affect her bottom line. Shaana also took all the worry and work out of the process for me, so I could focus on getting better. I’d definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a smart and effective advocate/attorney.
I was extremely impressed
I was struck by a car while riding a bicycle and suffered injuries requiring medical treatment. Since the expected lack of response from the driver’s insurance company occurred, I retained Shaana Rahman to pursue the case.
The defendant’s attorneys were extremely difficult to work with, even for attorneys. It was decided to go to arbitration and Counselor Rahman argued against their attorneys, one of whom was their tight fisted money man.
I was extremely impressed by Rahman’s opening statement. That and her following arguments enabled me to collect a substantial settlement.
I would heartily recommend her to anyone requiring a competent personal injury lawyer.
She fought tirelessly
When I first found out my 5 year old cousin was abused (physically and sexually) while at school, needless to say, I was distraught. To add insult to injury, I was outraged when the school’s initial reaction was to deny the incident as if it never happened. The safety of other vulnerable children was at risk and no one seemed to care. It was clear that we needed a lawyer…and a good one.
During our initial consultation with Shaana Rahman, she was sensitive to the facts of the matter and expressed a genuine concern for my young cousin. She made certain we had the counseling available to us to deal with this traumatic experience and went straight to work advocating for our rights. Throughout the case she fought tirelessly not only for the victim, but for the rights of all youth at risk in the Oakland public school district. Shaana maintained excellent communication with our family and kept us abreast with pertinent information related to the case. Above all, I was highly impressed with Shaana’s negotiation skills. She was firm, tenacious and did a phenomenal job articulating the concerns of the family. To no surprise, the case was settled for an undisclosed amount.
This was not only about being compensated, but also about protecting the safety of minors. Shaana’s advocacy helped to change policies, procedures and guidelines within the Oakland Unified School District to help prevent the abuse and neglect of children while on school grounds. There are no words that can explain how it feels to have your voice heard and to be vindicated. Her advocacy for minors has empowered my young cousin to lead a healthy and productive life, and for that I am truly thankful.
Shaana Rahman of the Rahman Law PC Law Firm was able to turn a really difficult liability case with thorny damages issues into a great result for my parents. My 87 year old mother is now cooking her Italian recipes in a brand new kitchen thanks to Shaana!!
