A San Leandro cyclist was riding his bike to work, like he did every day, when he was cut off by an oblivious motorist. While the cyclist was riding his bike in the crosswalk at an intersection, the motorist pulled out without even looking and ran into the cyclist, knocking him to the ground. The cyclist suffered two broken ribs, a serious concussion (possible TBI) and all around bumps and bruises. He was taken by ambulance to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley. The emergency room physicians believed the head injury to be serious enough that they required the cyclist to be hospitalized overnight for observation.

The cyclist was really worried about how he was going to pay his medical bills and he had just bought his bike and wanted it replaced. He didn’t have a clue where to start. He and his family did some research online and found the Oakland personal injury attorneys at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers. This cyclist was so relieved to have found this legal team to help him with his bicycle accident claim.

Despite the fact the cyclist was illegally riding in a crosswalk, Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers fought for him and got him $100,000 to compensate him for his medical expenses, wage loss and put a good chunk of money in his pocket when all was said and done.

Accident Client

“Last March, my partner was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street. During this difficult time of healing, we knew that bills were going to pile up and his was going to be a long process. After looking at multiple law firms, we knew that Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers was going to be the best place to work with. Lauren and her team were patient, supportive and caring during his difficult time. His schedule was always busy with work and doctor appointments that his main source of communication was through email. Lauren and her team made it to where he didn’t have to worry about anything but just sending over the paper work he got from the hospital, and other bill collectors involving his incident and they worried about the rest.

Because of all their help my partner Aaron, was able to heal with less worries on his shoulders. By end of December, everything was settled and we were pleased with the results. I’d like to give a huge thank you to Lauren & the Sally Morin team. If you’re looking for a law firm for your incident, I’d definitely look at this law firm.”
