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:
As a result of a motorcycle accident, then speaking with a personal injury attorney at Sally Morin Law is the first step on the road to recovery
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 adjustors will play to to try to make you accept liability and reduce the value of your claim just for riding a motorcycle.

I was the victim of a hit and run accident on my motorcycle. I went down hard, it was awful. A coworker said I should contact a lawyer...so I called Sally Morin Law. Great decision. I worked with Lauren and she and her team sprang into action, took care of everything and most important to me they really cared. It showed in the way they went to bat for me. It was such a relief to have them in my corner. My health and making things right was their priority. They are winners and they care. I tell all my friends--if somebody's careless actions ever hurt you: call them immediately.
Sally was easily reachable, very forthcoming about her experience with cases like mine, and very flexible with her schedule. She made a house call to get the case started and explained the contract point-by-point before we moved forward. She worked hard to build the best case for me and in the end the outcome was exactly what we expected. I always felt at the top of her list regardless of how many clients she had and was very responsive to all of my calls and emails. I would recommend Sally to anyone who needs an advocate in their corner, regardless of their own experience with serious events like this.
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.
