A 21 year-old apprentice electrician was a hit by a car while riding his motorcycle that made a left turn in front of him. The motorcyclist was proceeding straight with the right of way in Alameda when the motorist traveling in the opposite direction cut off his right of way and turned left in front of him.

Apparently, the driver thought the motorcyclist had a stop sign and that the driver had the right of way. This was not the case, as there was no stop sign in either direction. The driver was 100% responsible for causing the motorcycle accident.

As a result of the accident, the motorcyclist suffered serious injuries including two broken fingers, which were repaired with a surgery at Kaiser in Oakland. He also underwent a short course of physical therapy after the surgery. He sought recovery of his medical expenses and a modest loss of earnings.

He sought our Oakland personal injury team to help him navigate his personal injury case. He opted to settle quickly for the $100,000 insurance policy limits, just one month after presenting his demand. Prior to acceptance of the policy limits offer, Sally Morin personal injury attorney confirmed that the negligent driver had no significant assets from which to recover further settlement monies.

Accident Client

“Last March, my partner was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street. During this difficult time of healing, we knew that bills were going to pile up and his was going to be a long process. After looking at multiple law firms, we knew that Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers was going to be the best place to work with. Lauren and her team were patient, supportive and caring during his difficult time. His schedule was always busy with work and doctor appointments that his main source of communication was through email. Lauren and her team made it to where he didn’t have to worry about anything but just sending over the paper work he got from the hospital, and other bill collectors involving his incident and they worried about the rest.

Because of all their help my partner Aaron, was able to heal with less worries on his shoulders. By end of December, everything was settled and we were pleased with the results. I’d like to give a huge thank you to Lauren & the Sally Morin team. If you’re looking for a law firm for your incident, I’d definitely look at this law firm.”
