Maybe it’s the freedom of the open road that calls to you. Maybe it’s California’s romantic history of rebelling against the establishment.
Whatever your personal motivation for owning a motorcycle, you’re in an elite group of people who love their bikes. But your hobby (or habit for some of us) can also be dangerous.
Motorcycle crashes can result in serious physical, financial and emotional setbacks for you and your family.
If you have suffered:
Keep reading to learn more about our unique expertise in handling motorcycle accident claims, and to find out if working with the motorcycle accident lawyers at Sally Morin Law is right for you.
Not only are motorcyclists much more likely to be injured in a vehicle accident due to their decreased visibility and protection, but more often than not there seems to be an unfair presumption that all motorcyclists are dangerous drivers.
Other drivers, and sometimes police officers, insurance adjustors, juries and even judges, have an unfair prejudice towards motorcycle riders. And this can sometimes result in liability for the accident being unfairly assigned to you just because you ride a motorcycle.
And that's why if you've been injured in a motorcycle accident by another party, it's imperative that you work with an experienced motorcycle injury attorney who will aggressively represent your claim and defend your rights.
As a former avide motorcyclist, both street and off-road, Sally Morin and her team understand the unique challenges faced by motorcycle accident victims.
Sally started riding mopeds at age 15, then a Honda Elite 150 at age 17, and rode a Honda CM400 during her years at Law School and beyond.
Not only does Sally understand your passion for the open road, she knows all the games police and insurance adjusters will play to to try to make you accept liability and reduce the value of your claim just for riding a motorcycle.
Injuries Requiring Surgery
I was involved in a hit and run accident in San Diego in 2016. Sally Morin Law were incredible to work with. Sympathetic to my case and tough on my bill collectors, etc. They were always responsive, easy to get a hold of, kind and helped to turn a very painful and hard situation into a case where I was able to relax and heal knowing I was in good hands. I can't highly recommend them enough. Great team.
Last year I was in a serious Motorcycle accident that was not my fault. Beyond the initial emergency room visit, I required surgery and months of rehab. All in all, my left leg will probably never reach 100%. It has been a stressful and scary year. But one of the comforts through it all has been the services that Sally Morin provided. While I was focused on my health, she was taking care of everything else. And in the end she got the other drivers insurance company to settle at an amount that was substantial enough to cover the pain and suffering I had incurred as well ease my worries about paying for any future care related to the accident. She even got the medical collections to decrease my balance due by thousands. I was skeptical to hire a lawyer off of YELP, but in the end it was the best thing I could have done.
I was involved in a motorcycle accident in April that was a result of an unlicensed driver making a left turn in front of me without looking. Consequently I t-boned the driver at about 40 mph and was injured pretty badly. I required surgery, hospitalization, and a few months of bed rest. At this point I must add the fact that I was in between insurance carriers at the time because I had just bought the bike so I did not have any insurance. People would probably think that since I was in fact uninsured I got screwed, well that's when I found Sally Morin on Yelp and where Lauren came to the rescue! As well as being prompt to respond to any questions I had and being very supportive through my recovery, she fought to get me the compensation from the party at fault that I needed to cover all of my hospital bills (not a small amount), Rebuild my motorcycle, and got me a hefty amount more than expected for loss of wages and pain and suffering. Despite me being uninsured at the time of the accident Lauren came through. I am extremely happy with Lauren's service and highly recommend it to anyone!
