Honestly better than I could've ever hoped for. After being hit on my motorcycle Carmen and Rebecca took care of everything. They talked with the insurance and medical companies and got me an amazing settlement. Literally had to do zero work.
One of my favorite things about working with the team at Sally Morin was the speed of communication. If I had a question I'd get a response that day or the next. Super speedy fast.
If you've been in a motorcycle accident, would hands down recommend talking with these guys and letting them see what they can do.
I highly recommend Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers to anyone who's looking for professional, compassionate, competent, and reliable representation. I was involved in a motorcycle accident three years back, and it was thanks to their hard work that I was able to get some closure and the proper compensation to move on. Thank you ladies for all that you do!
First, save yourself some time in reading this review and just hire them! From start to finish everyone at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers: San Francisco worked hard to obtain the best possible outcome for me. They are exceptional at what they do, professional, pleasant to work with and they made a very difficult period of my life easier by allowing me to focus on what was important, recovering from the accident.
If at any time within the first 30 days of signing with Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers you are not 100% satisfied with the quality and care of service you receive from our attorneys, we will cancel your contract at no cost so that you can seek different representation. No questions asked.
After immediate medical concerns have been addressed, it is important to gather as much information as you can from the scene of the motorcycle accident. You should get the names and addresses of anyone who witnessed the accident. You should also get the insurance, driver’s license and vehicle information from any other drivers involved in the collision. Try not to move your motorcycle, unless you are in danger by keeping it where it is (and you are physically capable of moving it). Make sure the police are called to the scene, as they can take important measurements and interview witnesses that will be important to your case. If possible, take photos of the accident scene (cell phones are good for this purpose), and later of your injuries and the damage to your motorcycle.
After you have sought the immediate medical treatment you need, you should contact a California motorcycle injury law firm like Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers who is knowledgeable about maximizing financial compensation in motorcycle accident claims.
There seems to be an unfair presumption that all motorcyclists are dangerous drivers. This prejudice and misconception can prevent motorcyclists from being treated fairly when there is an accident. Other drivers and even some police officers, attorneys and judges might assume that because a motorcycle was involved in an accident that the motorcycle driver is at fault. Therefore, it is very important that you, as a motorcycle driver or passenger, do not get adversarial or argumentative with anyone at the accident scene, including the driver who caused the accident or the police. Further, you should not speak with any investigator or insurance company personnel until you speak with your motorcycle accident attorney.
After the accident, it is important that you do not get your bike fixed without first consulting with your attorney who might want to take pictures of the bike for evidence or negotiate repair payments before you fix the motorcycle. It is often difficult to wait for repairs, as this may be your only mode of transportation. The motorcycle accident team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers is very sensitive to this, and therefore works diligently and quickly to get the property damage portion of your motorcycle accident case resolved right away.
You should not settle for representation by just any personal injury attorney, but should seek out a focused motorcycle accident attorney, like Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers, who can help you with your case from the point of view of an experienced team of California motorcycle accident case pros.
Tell your friends. Tell your colleagues. Tell your family members (please!) Tell everyone. Check your policy online right now, and pay that extra $5-10 per month to get better coverage.
If you’re going to ride a motorcycle, especially in an urban area like San Francisco or Los Angeles where accidents are frequent due to heavy traffic, make sure that your uninsured or under-insured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage is at LEAST $100,000 per person, per accident. Your UM/UIM coverage could make up for the other driver’s minimum policy, which is only $15,000 in California.
Motorcycle accidents, due to the nature of the vehicle (no metal frame around you, no seatbelts, and no airbags) tend to cause more severe injuries, which are more costly to treat, than accidents involving just cars. The other driver's mere $15k of liability coverage is NOT going to pay for the damages caused. Take this step now to protect yourself in case you are ever involved (in your first or another) serious motorcycle accident.
We are not a typical California personal injury law firm. We do not take every case presented to us. We have no interest in representing people with superficial injuries who are motivated purely by monetary gain or revenge.
We are very interested in working with clients who have suffered serious and legitimate injuries that have significantly disrupted their lives. These folks truly need assistance in getting back on their feet and getting back in the game.
If you appreciate straight talking (we don't inflate what we think your case is worth to get your business), understanding exactly how the process works, realistic expectations and the confidence that comes from working with a motorcycle accident legal team that is focused on your case then you should submit your case for review now.
We only handle motorcycle, bicycle, automobile and pedestrian accident claims. We don't do the typical slip and fall, product liability and medical malpractice lawsuits that most personal injury law firms do. This narrow practice area allows us to focus on cases just like yours! And, after hundreds of motorcycle accident cases, we have developed the expertise that makes us one of the most effective motorcycle accident attorney firms in California.
When we take your case, we take over everything, so you can step back from the legal process and focus on your health. We deal with investigators, insurance companies, medical service providers, billing agencies and more so all you have to worry about is healing and getting your life back on track.
We don’t make inflated promises about how much we think we can get for your motorcycle accident case just to get you through the door as a client. We will be realistic with you and treat you with honesty and respect. We will do the work it takes to prove what your injuries are worth and won’t stop until you get every penny you deserve. This hard work up front allows us to resolve claims quickly—often without going to court!
Plus, we negotiate with medical service providers on your behalf to lower your financial obligations—you get to keep more of your settlement money.
It is our duty to keep our clients informed, and your right to have all the information you need to help make big decisions easy. We’ll always keep you in the loop about your claims process, answer our phone calls and emails quickly, and respond to any questions you have. We work for you, not for ourselves.
Some motorcycle accident lawyers in California see injured victims as a chance to get rich, promote themselves and inflate their egos. We see these victims as people in need, and we do everything we can to get them the financial help they deserve. We’re not in this business to boost our own egos, fill our pockets with your settlement money or spread ourselves thin with too many clients. That’s why you won’t see us on ads on billboards or on the sides of buses. We carefully hand-select clients who appreciate our low-stress approach to handling motorcycle accident claims AND those we can help the most.

The size and type(s) of damages an attorney will be able to claim on your behalf will depend on the severity and extent of your motorcyle accident.
In most cases, this may include damages such as:
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) studied over 1,222,000 motorcycle accidents between 2001-2008 to discover the most common non-fatal injuries in motorcycle accidents.
The most common injuries are foot and leg injuries (33%), head and neck injuries (22%), followed by upper trunk (chest/shoulders), hands and arms, and lower trunk (hips/thighs).
