A 29 year-old bar manager was a hit by an Uber in San Francisco who making a left turn in front of him. The motorcyclist was proceeding straight with a green light in San Francisco when the Uber driver traveling in the opposite direction cut off his right of way and turned left in front of him.

Apparently, the Uber driver did not see him. As a result of the motorcycle accident, the motorcyclist suffered serious injuries including a fractured tibia and a thumb fracture. He was rushed by San Francisco Fire Department ambulance to the San Francisco General Hospital emergency room. Later, his tibia fracture was repaired with a surgery at Kaiser in San Francisco, He also underwent a few months of physical therapy after the surgery. He sought recovery of his medical expenses and loss of earnings.

Rather than drag out his case, the motorcyclist opted to have the team of expert Uber accident lawyers at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers settle his case quickly. Shortly after filing the lawsuit in the case and only three months after making his initial settlement demand, the case settled for the fair amount of $225,000.

A helpful Mission District resident had a home security video camera pointed at the intersection at the time of the accident and captured the motorcycle crash on film. This was a very effective piece of evidence in getting an early settlement in the case. As Uber accident attorneys in San Francisco, we are finding more and more often that video footage is abundant. Whether it is the Uber driver’s own camera, a point of view camera on your motorcycle, a local business’ security cameras or a bystander with their iPhone, this video footage has been really helpful in our San Francisco Uber accident cases.

“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.
