Experienced Lawyers Serving Long Beach
Living in Long Beach
Long Beach, California is a southern California city of about 469,000 people that feels like a shrunk-down version of Los Angeles with a more quaint and artsy vibe. But watch out for the cost of living! Home values here are astronomical, with an average home value of $519,000 compared to the national average of $184,700.
Despite the expenses of a Long Beach lifestyle, it’s easy to see why so many people want to call Long Beach home. It has gorgeous sunsets, thriving multicultural communities, endless entertainment options, and did we mention it has one of the best beaches in the whole wide world? Go surfing, go swimming, or hit the boardwalk for a harbor view.
Long Beach is an easy place to find a job, either here in the “little city” or nearby in great big Los Angeles. At the end of a long day, you can head home to enjoy Long Beach’s beautiful weather and vacation-like atmosphere. It’s becoming a very popular place to move for young professionals who want to join the dating scene or find some SoCal-style adventure.

Which Types of Long Beach Cases Do You Handle?
At Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers, we are Long Beach attorneys who care about helping the people of California survive serious injuries, especially those from road accidents. Wondering if we’re the right lawyers for you? Here’s a look at who we serve.
Everyone loves to walk in Long Beach. We have a huge pedestrian population, which means people are vulnerable to vehicles zipping around. After a pedestrian injury, we can help you gather the evidence to make a persuasive insurance claim, negotiate a settlement, and hold the motorist accountable.
You probably won’t find a bigger group of lawyer-bicyclists than us! We’re cyclists ourselves and we understand the dangers you’ll find cycling on Long Beach roads, sidewalks, and boardwalks. If you’re severely injured, we can help you start a bicycle accident claim for full and fair compensation.
We help injured motorcyclists seek compensation for medical bills, lost work, damage to your bike, and more. We know how catastrophic motorcycle accidents can be and we have a long track record of positive results for our clients.
Uber accidents are on the rise in Long Beach and across the country. If an Uber driver hurts you, or if you’re an Uber driver in an accident with other vehicles, you can reach out to us for knowledgeable and compassionate representation.
We handle many types of vehicle accident claims. Did a Long Beach delivery driver crash into your car? Was a distracted driver at fault for your truck crash? We’ll help you get to the bottom of what happened and start a claim for compensation. We primarily handle severe accidents with serious injuries that occur on and near roadways.
What if I’m Not Sure Whether I Have a Case?
Don’t worry if you’re not clear on whether or not you have a case. 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!
Generally speaking, you can pursue compensation:
- With a claim against the at-fault party’s insurance company
- Through a lawsuit in court
- In a private settlement out of court
Working together with an experienced Long Beach 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 meet with you in our Long Beach/LA office and 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?
In terms of what kind of compensation you could receive, compensation varies depending on the situation. You can 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!
