BICYCLE ACCIDENT VICTIM OFFERED $15,000…

SALLY MORIN LAW GETS HIM $85,000

A 46 year-old record label manager was riding his bicycle in the very popular Mission District in San Francisco when he was “doored” by a passenger exiting a taxi in the bike lane on Valencia Street. The cyclist hit the door, was thrown over his handlebars and suffered a broken collarbone (clavicle). The taxi company tried to dispute liability for causing the bicycle accident, and only offered $15,000 to settle the case. San Francisco bicycle accident attorney Sally Morin defeated the taxi company’s defense early in the case and negotiated a reasonable settlement of $85,000, which the cyclist was happy to receive.

SETTLEMENT AGAINST UBER DRIVER

SALLY GETS CYCLIST CLIENT $500,000

A twenty-eight year old avid cyclist was cut off by an Uber driver who turned right in front of her. She suffered serious injuries as a result, but with the help of Sally Morin Law, she walked away from the accident with a great settlement and was able to move forward with her life. This lovely young woman was riding her straight through a SF intersection in the newly painted green bicycle lane. An Uber driver (who was driving a large SUV) tried to make a right turn across the bike lane. As a result, she suffered numerous facial fractures, internal lacerations and bleeding, and a severe fracture in her arm that required two surgeries. It took her many months of physical therapy and treatment to heal from the injuries she endured in the accident. San Francisco bicycle accident attorney Sally Morin and her team worked hard to make sure this young, resilient woman walked away from this traumatic accident with a good settlement.

We are selective

Last but not least: we don’t take every bicycle accident case that comes to us. In fact, we are VERY selective with the clients we choose to work with. We truly believe in helping honest, hardworking people who have been seriously injured on their bikes. We work day and night to resolve their cases to help them achieve their top priorities of getting their health back and getting back on two wheels.

"I was hit by a van while riding my bike on a charity ride. It was a terrible crash and could have easily been fatal but I was lucky to only suffer a broken ankle. This was a bad injury which required surgery and four screws… My brother found Sally on Yelp and after talking with her on the phone I was confident she could handle my bicycle case and get the best settlement possible. Sally took care of everything. She settled all my bills, negotiated with the medical insurance, got the limits from the other party’s insurance for liability and property and also got the limit from my own uninsured auto coverage. I was not even aware my auto insurance covered me on my bike... In the end I got the most I could have hoped for given the insurance limits and my expenses were significantly reduced I highly recommend Sally." - Bill B.

"I was in a terrible biking accident where I fractured both Clavicles (collarbones) at the same time by being "Doored." Trying to figure out which was the best lawyer seemed such a task while in recovery. My brother had suggested Sally Morin through the SF bicycling coalition. Not knowing and never having to use a lawyer this seemed to be a scary experience, BUT Sally was one for the most diligent, thorough, and friendliest lawyers I've ever had the pleasure to experience. She not only made it easy to correspond, but really broke my impression of what is stereotyped about lawyers. Sally is an Amazing!!!!!!! Honestly I don't know what I would have done without her help and expertise!!!!! Big love Sally!!!!! and Thanks a Million!!!!!!"

San Francisco Bay Area bicycle accident experts

Bicycle accidents happen every day in San Francisco

Bicycles are an extremely popular way to get around San Francisco but like cyclists everywhere they face the risk of being involved in bicycle accidents. Nationwide there are over 50,000 bicycle accidents each year and nearly 800 die from their injuries.  Bicycle accidents in San Francisco almost always result in some form of injury, often very serious,  and it’s important that you know what to do and what not to do if you find yourself in one. San Francisco personal injury lawyer Sally Morin Law offers up some solid advice for anyone involved in a bicycle accident.


Bicyclists have the same right to be on the road as drivers of automobiles. However, they face the threat of serious injuries from a bicycle accident that other drivers do not face. As a commuting/urban cyclist in San Francisco, Attorney Sally Morin is very familiar with the dangers that cyclists face in an urban environment on a daily basis. She and her team are committed to helping cyclists assert their rights if they have the unfortunate experience of being in a bicycle accident.

Cyclists in the Bay Area are a key element to the “green movement”, and Sally Morin Law makes an extra effort to reach out to people in the community (specifically cyclists, pedestrians and even motorcyclists) who are taking steps to help preserve the environment. It is unfortunate that such persons tend to be more vulnerable to serious injury accidents, as they are not shielded by thousands of pounds of metal and plastic like people in cars, but they have to face those vehicles on the road daily. This population needs a personal injury attorney who focuses on bicycle, motorcycle and pedestrian accident cases.

What to do if you are in a bicycle accident?

Bicycle accidents can happen no matter how skilled the cyclist or how careful he or she is trying to stay safe. If you are in an accident you should seek prompt medical treatment for any injuries that you have sustained. Make sure to get the insurance, driver’s license and vehicle information from any drivers involved in the collision (if the police make a report, they will usually obtain this information for you, but you can’t always trust them to do everything). That’s why you need a personal injury attorney who focuses on bicycle accident cases. Assuming there is some injury, (and when 200 lbs. meets 2 tons there are usually injuries) you should also contact the police and have an accident report written up just as you would if the accident involved two motor vehicles.


If anyone witnessed the accident, you should do your best to obtain those persons contact information. Liability is very often contested by motorists in bicycle accident cases, so witnesses can be the key factor in proving liability. If possible, take photos of the accident scene (cell phones are good for this purpose), and later of your injuries and the damage to your bike.

What NOT to do if you are in a bicycle accident

It is important to remember that most motorists and even many police officers do not understand the details about bicycle accidents. Therefore, if at all possible, you should not get adversarial or argumentative with them at the scene; you should simply state the facts of the accident and try to identify witnesses. Make sure to contact an experienced San Francisco bicycle accident attorney, like Sally Morin, who understands all of the applicable laws and can best represent your interests. Also, it is important that you do not fix your bike (to preserve it as evidence) or talk to the insurance company without first consulting your personal injury attorney. Of course, do not give any statements (recorded or otherwise) to any insurance company about the accident or your injuries without first consulting a bike accident attorney. Never give anyone (especially insurance carrier employees) your social security number, or they will use it to minimize your case.


When you are choosing an attorney make sure that you are speaking to someone who respects bicyclists and understands the law surrounding bicycle accidents. An experienced San Francisco personal injury attorney and avid urban cyclist (and supporter and member of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition), Sally Morin and her team knows how to protect your interests.
