Pursuing Fair Compensation for Injured Victims

People who have suffered injuries and losses in an accident can seek compensatory damages from the at-fault party and their insurer. Depending on your unique situation, you may be able to seek compensation for economic as well as non-economic damages. RFTM has a long history of successes and a strong track record of impressive settlements and verdicts. When you contact our San Francisco personal injury lawyers, we can discuss what you may be able to recover and how we can help you.

We work tirelessly to help our clients obtain full and fair compensation for:

  • Medical costs, including ongoing medical treatment, surgeries, medical devices, and other associated costs
  • Lost earnings and lost earning capacity. If you are disabled and no longer able to return to the same line of work, you can recover damages for wages you would have been able to earn prior to your accident.
  • Property damage, such as damage to your vehicle or other property
  • Pain and suffering, mental anguish or trauma caused by the accident. This includes loss of enjoyment of life, grief, anxiety, and other emotional distress.
