Experienced Lawyers Serving Richmond
Living in Richmond
Richmond, California is an East Bay suburb of Oakland in Contra Costa County with a population of just over 109,000 people. Many people from outside the area know Richmond as the nation’s largest city with a Green Party mayor and a strong environmentally-friendly culture.
It’s an attractive area for young professionals and families who want to live in a quieter area on the outskirts of the big city with plenty of local options for shopping, dining, entertainment, and education. This amenity-heavy lifestyle comes with a high cost of living. The average home in Richmond costs about $422,000 compared to a national average of $184,000. Renting a home is about $500 more a month than the national average too.
One of the downsides that comes with living in Richmond is that the city has historically struggled with a high crime rate for larceny, auto theft, gun violence and even murder. Traffic can also be extremely heavy and slow-moving at certain times in and around Richmond, leading the city leadership to investigate many types of traffic flow innovations to ease the congestion.

What if I’m Not Sure Whether I Have a Case?
If you’re unsure about whether or not you have a case, we understand. 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, compensation is never guaranteed. Expect the other party to fight it. That’s why you need help from a personal injury lawyer who gets results!
You can pursue compensation in three ways, generally speaking:
- With a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company
- Through a lawsuit in court
- In a 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’ll help you maximize your compensation by making a case for your financial losses and damages related to your injuries. Although it’s possible to do this without a lawyer’s help, 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?
Compensation varies depending on the circumstances. In terms of what kind of compensation you could receive, start by looking at how you’ve been hurt in the accident. 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.
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.

It’s taken me a while to write this review, not because I lack motivation; rather, I wanted to make sure that my comments were thoughtful and accurately reflected my absolute satisfaction with Sally, Janai, and the entire team who devoted much time and attention to my case. In the same way that they took care to ensure that (1) my interests were at the forefront, (2) communicated with me regularly and accurately, and (3) demonstrated true concern and care for me as a person, I wanted to be sure that everyone knew how happy I am with the process and the results. I would unequivocally and resolutely recommend Sally!
We found Sally Morin and her team through Yelp and now after our case has been settled better than we could have ever imagined we are very happy to give her 5 stars just like everybody else does. Her whole team is beyond friendly and knowledgeable and they are just wonderful people, they have attention to detail and are very personal and prompt in their answers. They also did a great job of making the terminology of their trade understandable to us and they kept fighting for a good settlement instead of going for the easy route. They don’t have to have billboards or cheesy TV ads because they get more than enough work through referrals from clients like us.
So, I was in a pretty bad motorcycle accident that was clearly not my fault. Long story short, after months of dealing with multiple insurance companies and various law firms, we finally settled for an amount much larger than I would have ever dreamed. I attribute the success completely to Sally and her office. The process went smooth and relatively quickly (personal injury suits can take a long time), and she was extremely responsive and proactive. I’ve grown to really respect Sally and what she does after admittedly being skeptical of lawyers in general. Sally really cares about coming to a reasonable and beneficial result for her clients and not just for herself!
