A 36-year old cinematographer was riding his electric bicycle accident on his way to work in San Francisco when he was hit by a car that made an illegal left turn. As a result, he suffered a badly broken thumb, which required surgery at San Francisco General Hospital. He also underwent approximately three months of occupational therapy after the surgery.

Although a thumb injury may seem minor, it is a pretty big deal when most your everyday activities involve the use of our hands. For this particular young man, his work as a cinematographer required dexterity in his hands and his favorite hobby of online gaming with his brother long-distance required constant use of this thumb and hands.

Shortly following the accident, the driver’s insurance carrier offered the cyclist $7,000 to settle his bodily injury claim. Although he was tempted to accept this offer, as he really wanted to move on from the accident, he felt the case was worth at least the cost of his medical bills (which were more than the $7,000.)

He was stuck! Not only was he worried about going into debt and owing the hospital money, but he felt like he was being bullied by an insurance company and needed someone on his side who “knew the ropes”. The cyclist therefore did some research online about personal injury lawyers and found Sally Morin’s frequently asked questions which provided him with information about how the whole personal injury process works and how to maximize the value of personal injury cases.

He also saw online reviews by some of Sally’s former clients and read the great things to say about her quick, low-stress resolution of their cases. He knew at that point that Sally and her team could help!

This young man initially came to Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers merely seeking reimbursement for his medical expenses and modest loss of earnings that he incurred as a result of the accident. Once Sally and her team took over his case, they were able to increase the existing settlement offer TEN-FOLD in only four months—ultimately settling his bodily injury claim for $70,000.00.

He was so grateful that he was able to pay off his medical bills, recoup his small amount of lost earnings, pay his legal fees and walk away with some money in his pocket. All of this, knowing that just four months prior he was facing impending debt and a “cram-down” settlement by the insurance carrier.

It should also be noted that the main thing this particular client wanted to avoid was getting caught up in a lawsuit or any litigation. He just wanted to get his bills paid and move on with his life. Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers helped him do that… and more!

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.”
