This month (August 2020) Guy Kornblum settled a claim in the seven figures for a couple who suffered injuries from a fire in their apartment building two years ago in the San Francisco Avenues. The husband was not home when the fire started but had a “relationship” claim. His wife, also a plaintiff, had to jump out a window to escape because the smoke alarm had not been inspected since installation and did not sound an alarm. She lived but suffered serious ankle/foot/back injuries. She is able to move about now so her recovery was fortunate. This was an excellent settlement which gives this middle aged couple lifetime security.
Mukesh Advani successfully mediated a claim by a high end sales executive who was wrongfully terminated by his employer. The case was settled without litigation and for maximum dollars.
Our firm just settled a disability case for an NFL player who was disabled from an injury for mid-seven figures. His insurer, a private insurer who issued a disability policy which paid if he were disabled from playing professional football in the NFL, denied his claim, but we were able to overcome its position and get a very favorable settlement for our client. The terms are confidential. We worked with our colleagues, Bostwick & Peterson, San Francisco attorneys, on the case.
