The Accident and Its Consequences

Our client, an engineer, was riding their bicycle at the Emeryville Greenway crossing Folger Avenue when a driver carelessly drove through the bike path crossing without looking or slowing down. The impact was severe, resulting in a fractured collarbone and significant pain. To make matters worse, the initial police report was against our client, further complicating the situation. Our client faced not only physical injuries but also financial worries, as they were unable to work and losing income. They needed to focus on healing and were understandably concerned about paying their mounting medical bills.

Sally Morin’s Dedication: Challenging Liability and Achieving a Solid Result

At Sally Morin Law, we take pride in going above and beyond for our clients. In this case, we faced a challenging liability dispute due to the initial police report being against our client. However, our legal team was determined to fight for justice. We meticulously gathered evidence, interviewed witnesses, and reconstructed the accident scene to prove our client’s innocence. Utilizing our expertise and unyielding dedication, we successfully beat the liability dispute, leading the way to a favorable settlement.

Securing a Remarkable Settlement: Relief Beyond Expectations

After negotiating with the insurance company, we achieved a settlement of $50,000 for our client. But the true measure of success lies in the amount our client ultimately walked away with – an impressive $30,171.24. This significant settlement exceeded our client’s expectations and provided the financial relief necessary to cover medical expenses and alleviate the stress of worrying about bills.

Accident Client

If you’re someone who is considering an attorney for a personal accident, I highly recommend Sally Morin and her professional staff of attorneys. If you would like to know more details, feel free to contact me via Yelp and I would be happy to share more details. While I use Yelp quite often, I rarely post reviews… unless I’m truly blown away by great service (or angry with horrible service). If there were a sixth star, I would certainly give it to Rebecca and Sally!
