Despite there being no police report and inconsistent witness statements, Sally Morin San Francisco personal injury attorney litigated the case for 18 months and was able to secure an offer of $50,000 to cover the medical expenses and loss of earnings claims.
A 21 year-old apprentice electrician was a hit by a car making a left turn in front of him, as there was no stop sign in either direction. The driver was 100% responsible for causing the motorcycle accident. He opted to settle quickly for the $100,000 insurance policy limits, just one month after presenting his demand. Prior to acceptance of the policy limits offer, Sally Morin personal injury attorney confirmed that the negligent driver had no significant assets from which to recover further settlement monies.
Florida real estate agent and yoga instructor was visiting friends in San Francisco when she was struck by another car as a passenger in a friend’s car. The other driver made an unsafe U-turn in front of them, causing a broadside collision. Prior to acceptance of the policy limits offer, Sally Morin personal injury attorney conducted an intensive investigation to confirm that the negligent driver had no significant assets from which to recover further settlement monies. Further, this case is an example of the many long-distance clients (people who love outside of the San Francisco Bay Area, but are injured here) who Sally Morin Law happily and successfully represents.
A 50 year-old San Francisco Marketing Director and avid cyclist was riding his bicycle, within a designated bike lane. While the cyclist was waiting at the green light, a distracted driver made a right turn into the bike lane and struck the cyclist. The impact threw the cyclist to the ground and resulted in a broken clavicle. The cyclist made a claim for his medical expenses and pain and suffering. He did not suffer a loss of earnings, as he had just transitioned jobs. He happily made the decision to settle his case for the reasonable amount of $112,000 just four months after finishing his medical treatment related to the case.
Sally Morin Law Can Help When You Experience a Serious Personal Injury Accident in the San Francisco Bay Area
We are so fortunate to live in San Francisco which is unquestionably the most beautiful, exciting and diverse city in California. However, we hold the “1st in the State” ranking for traffic accidents (data provided by the Office of Traffic Safety). According to the OTS, San Francisco experiences more deaths and injuries due to traffic accidents than any other city in the state with a population over 250,000 (2009 statistics).
Why the cards are stacked against you in a personal injury claim: While the Bay area leads the state in car, bike, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents, it fortunately is not an everyday part of life for most people. But when it happens and you sustain an injury, you find yourself in a system that is not user-friendly and is designed to minimize any personal injury claim you might file. When you have an auto accident in San Bruno or motorcycle accident in Daly City, bike accident in Oakland or you’re hit by a car while crossing a street in downtown San Francisco, a series of organizations enter your life that are not there to help you. First, you have the police department. They are often overwhelmed and do not do a complete investigation. This can result in an accident report that incorrectly determines you to be at least partially at fault. This is particularly common if you are involved in a motorcycle or bicycle accident. Next, you will have to handle the medical providers and their bill collectors. They don’t care if you win or lose your personal injury claim, they just want to be paid and they want to be paid now. This can be very stressful when you are trying to focus on healing from your injuries. And then there are the insurance companies whose sole function is to keep payouts on claims to an absolute minimum…For insurance adjusters it’s not about fairness, it’s about money.
And then there’s you: This is a new experience for you. This is new territory and you don’t have a map. What you probably do have is pain, a loss of a means of transportation, maybe time lost from work and for sure an adversarial relationship with adjustors and lawyers from the insurance company. What you most certainly have is a higher stress level than you deserve.
And then there’s Sally Morin Law: Sally is one of the most sought after San Francisco personal injury attorneys and for good reason. You won’t find Sally or her team on a late night TV ad or plastered on the side of a MUNI bus. That’s not their style. Rather than spending their time on cheezy marketing ploys, Sally and her team focus on getting fair settlements for their clients’ personal injury claims. More importantly, they get those settlements with minimum involvement by their clients. The team at Sally Morin Law believes that dealing with the police, medical providers and most especially the insurance companies is their job - not yours. When you have Sally Morin Law representing you, you can relax and concentrate on getting well again. Sally Morin Law limits their practice to automobile accident claims, motorcycle personal injury claims, bicycle accident claims and pedestrian personal injury claims. Sally has customized her firm's practice to these very specific areas so that she and her team can give the best possible service to her carefully selected clients. Rather than handle a wide array of cases, which she believes would dilute her years of experience and specialized expertise, she has chosen to exercise a laser focus on pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle and auto accident cases in San Francisco.

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area we encourage you to explore our website, particularly the testimonials from previous clients, to discover the benefits of engaging an experienced professional personal injury attorney who puts the needs of her clients at the forefront. Or you can submit your claim for evaluation for a prompt response. Either way, we wish you the best of luck with your personal injury claim.
Serious injuries require serious experience
When You Are Seriously Injured in an Accident
Personal injuries resulting from a traffic accident can be generally lumped into two severity classifications; those that you walk away from (which are considered minor) and those that you are carried away from…in an ambulance (these are considered major).
If you have experienced a major “carry away” injury in a pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle or auto accident; if you have temporarily or permanently lost your mobility or the use of a limb or other serious injury, you are facing a life changing event. However, you are probably focused on the pain, frustration and uncertainty that this event has caused and how you are going to make it through tomorrow much less the rest of your life. You need to focus on healing from your injuries, not dealing with the stress of a personal injury claim or lawsuit!
Now, when you are vulnerable, is when you need the services of a solid, experienced, reputable San Francisco personal injury attorney. You need Sally Morin Law.

And the reason you haven't contacted us yet is…
You've been injured in an accident and your biggest wish is that the accident hadn't happened in the first place. All you want to do is to stop hurting, get back to work, get back to the active lifestyle you live and to get rid of the added financial and career pressures that you are currently experiencing. In short you want things back to the way they were before the accident.
But you're a realist. You know nothing is going to change until you take action. The ball is in your court.
The accident isn't going to go away and you really only have two options to deal with it:
- Accept the insufficient and unfair offer of the insurance company (and your sense of fair play won't allow you to do that).

If this list describes you then let us add a few other features that make the Sally Morin Law team an attractive choice.
We are focused
The firm doesn't take every case referred. For starters we only represent clients that have been injured in a motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, pedestrian or automobile accident. That's where our expertise is and that's how our resources are oriented.
But that's not all. We only take cases where our client suffered injuries and by injuries we don't mean a stiff neck, sore back or a skinned knee. Our clients required legitimate medical care and perhaps surgery and ongoing therapy. Does this describe your circumstance?
We are responsive
While we believe that it is our job to resolve the claim and your job to focus on getting well, we will want you involved in all major decisions regarding the case. What you want your input on which path we march down.
We promise a prompt response to any emails or phone calls you send our way. We want you informed and comfortable with the way the case is progressing.
We add value
If you don't have health insurance, or even if you do, you are now experiencing medical expenses that you hadn't planned on. Our team can often negotiate lower medical costs meaning that the net value of your settlement or judgment will be greater.
So there you have it. All that's missing is you taking the first step. It's your call…literally. Why not pick up the phone now and call 415-413-0035 or click on the yellow "submit your case" button on the left side of this page.
