Sally Morin Law is an all female team of customer-focused, five-star California personal injury attorneys who exclusively handle traffic accident settlement negotiation. They have California offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose, and Oakland.
We are experts at getting you the solid settlement you deserve, without the added time, stress, cost and uncertainty of going to trial.
Not only will we work to get the at-fault party to pay all your medical bills, damaged property, lost wages and pain and suffering...we'll also help negotiate reductions on your medical bills, so at the end of the case you get more money in your pocket.
Educating, informing and empowering:
As an attorney practicing personal injury law in California for over 20 years, I feel that a big part of mine and my team’s job is educating and informing people about how the personal injury system and process works. Also, to give people like you the information you need to avoid jeopardizing your case or your potential settlement if you are involved in a traffic accident in California – regardless of whether you handle things by yourself or with an injury lawyer.
I know a lot of the old-school personal injury attorneys see their role as someone who is supposed to tell you what to do in your case. Our team at Sally Morin Law takes more of a collaborative approach with the people we serve. We want them to be a part of the process as much as they want to be engaged. We do not drag them through the minutia of paperwork and dealing with the insurance companies, but we do get them involved in the big picture stuff, like certain strategy decisions and negotiating a settlement in their case. For us, a big part of being a great personal injury lawyer is empowering our clients, not just speaking for them.
We keep it practical:
The information we provide here on the Sally Morin Law Personal Injury Blog is meant to be educational, digestible and useable. We try to avoid the use of too many legal terms. But, if we do use them it is only because they are so prevalent you are bound to run into them during your personal injury case. For this reason, we define these terms so you can use them to your advantage when making a personal injury claim. We also do our best to not get wrapped up in talking about theoretical legal issues. Yawn! We keep things practical, useable and relevant for everyone. The bottom line is that we do not write for lawyers. We write for people who were smart enough to not* be lawyers!
We provide information for you before an accident happens:
There are aspects of personal injury law and how to handle certain situations related to bicycle, pedestrian, motorcycle, Uber and car accidents that we here at Sally Morin Law really like all people in general to know -- not just people who are currently dealing with a traffic accident. This is because traffic accidents sadly happen to almost everyone, or at least someone you know, during our lifetime.
The information we provide here on our personal injury blog is not always something you hear or read and think, "Oh my God I'm going to need this information right away!" But, it is nice to have this information in the back of your mind (or available for reference) if and when that urgent situation comes up.
Things like carrying the proper insurance and what to do or not do if you are involved in an accident. Those are things that everybody should know well before they get in an accident. You will not have time to ask those questions or get that information once an accident has already happened. Believe me, we have had dozens of clients who increased their vehicle insurance after they were involved in a serious traffic accident. They only wish that had read our blog and known what to do it before the accident.
Again, this is NOT to wish an accident on anyone, or scare people into the mindset of "It's going to happen to you, so you had better get a personal injury lawyer on retainer NOW.” That is NOT our intent. The concept behind the information we provide here is like having insurance in general. It is something that you hope you never have to use, but if you do end up using it, you are stoked you have the right information.
The same goes for knowing and trusting a personal injury lawyer before you ever need one. I don't want anyone I know to ever have to call me, but if they ever do get into a serious traffic accident, I want them to be glad they have me and my team to come to. I want them to remember, “Oh yeah, Sally is always giving tips about motorcycle accidents, insurance companies and stuff... she’s a personal injury lawyer. She can totally help!” I want to be the attorney people know and trust... but never need. But, if they do need me, my team and I am here to help.
We provide information for after an accident has occurred:
The information we provide here in Sally Morin Law’s Personal Injury Blog is also meant to help people who have already been in an accident. To help those who are seeking answers, guidance and relief from some of the pressures that are coming at them. Things like doctor appointments, medical bills, collection agencies, insurance companies calling non-stop, lawyers, witnesses etc. can really cause a lot of stress. So many questions come up so quickly! We want our blog and website in general to be a place where these people can find answers to their "What do I do now?" questions.
We provide answers to real questions that people have after they have suffered a serious traffic accident. I have drafted numerous answers to FAQ’s based upon my 20+ years of experience as a personal injury attorney. These are real questions from people in bicycle, pedestrian, motorcycle, Uber and car accidents!
So, instead of facing the daunting task of cold-calling various personal injury attorneys to ask these common “first-timer” questions - and potentially getting bad advice, theoretical speeches or an egotistical monologue of an attorney’s victories and accomplishments - people who need real answers can hop onto our website to get the information they need. Hopefully, after spending a little time surfing around our site, they will be educated and empowered enough to make an informed decision about whether or not they need to hire a personal injury lawyer.
If you have any questions (beyond those you get answered on our site), or if you have any suggestions for ways we can improve our content, please feel free to reach out to me and my team. We are here to serve and educate. We look forward to connecting with you.
It should be noted that I am probably one of the most grateful and happy personal injury attorneys out there! I love what I do and the people I serve! I didn’t go to law school because I was told to, or because I couldn’t think of anything else to do. (I could have become a pro surfer. Haha. ;)) I was DRIVEN to do this out of a passion for advocating and helping people!
I'm so stoked!
