Experienced Lawyers Serving Burbank
Living in Burbank
Burbank is widely considered one of the best places to live and vacation in California. It has a beautiful climate with gorgeous canyon views, and it’s the world capital of several media empires that have produced some of the longest-running and most popular TV shows in history.
About 103,000 people call Burbank their permanent home, plus the city hosts almost 4 million tourists per year. Visitors and residents alike enjoy the city’s many vintage shops, family-owned restaurants, clothing boutiques, and quirky museums.
Burbank is also the starting point for many memorable adventures, like touring Universal Studios, hiking through Wildwood Canyon Park, seeing a show at the outdoor Starlight Bowl, or visiting the Burbank Farmers’ Market. Although living here is expensive, with home prices that are three times the national average, the schools are excellent and there’s just nothing else quite like living in Burbank.

Whether you drive a car, pickup truck, van, SUV, or another type of vehicle, it’s likely that we can help you. We primarily handle severe accidents with serious injuries that occur on and near roadways, including commercial and delivery vehicles.
What if I’m Not Sure Whether I Have a Case?
Don’t worry if you’re stuck wondering whether or not you have a case. Wonder no more! We can help you understand your options and decide how to move forward. When you are injured by another individual, corporation, or government entity, you are legally entitled to collect monetary compensation in an amount suitable to cover your expenses and damages.
Of course, your compensation is never guaranteed. You’ll have to make a strong case and stand up assertively when the other side puts up a fight. That’s why you need help from a personal injury lawyer who gets results!
Generally speaking, someone from Burbank has three options after a personal injury:
- Make a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company
- Start a lawsuit in court
- Negotiate a fair private settlement out of court
With the experience and wisdom of your personal injury lawyer, you can demonstrate the legitimacy of your injuries, show that someone was negligent, and request reimbursement for medical costs and other hardships. The team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers will help you stand up to difficult people and demand what you deserve.
We’re here to help you maximize your compensation by making a case for your financial losses and damages related to your injuries. Sure, it’s possible to do this without a lawyer’s help, but we don’t advise it. You’re already trying to rest and heal from your injuries, so a lawyer serves the vital role of moving your case forward so you can let go of all the legal stress.
What Kind of Compensation Could I Recover?
Your total compensation depends on the circumstances of your accident. In terms of what kind of compensation you could get, start by looking at how you’ve been hurt and what kinds of injuries required medical care. Most injury cases only cover two categories of damages if you can prove them.
- Special damages: Your special damages may include car loss, property damage, medical bills, and lost earnings.
- General damages: Your general damages are more abstract and may include pain, inconvenience, distress, loss of hobbies, and loss of a lifestyle with your loved ones.
Make sure you talk to your lawyer about the losses you suffered that are impacting your life. The better case you can put together and the more evidence you have, the better chance you have at receiving high-value compensation.
