Get Back Behind the Wheel… but It’s Good to Have a Co-Pilot
We’re Passionate About You
Sally Morin founded her law firm on one simple principle: hardworking, honest people should be able to get the legal help they need to get back on their feet as soon as possible. That simple belief has led her to help hundreds of clients successfully win courtroom judgments and financial settlements in The Bay Area amounting to millions of dollars. And now she’s extending that expert level of service to Oakland.
But we don’t help just anyone. The experienced car accident attorneys at Sally Morin Law are excited to find clients who aren’t looking for a handout, just a hand up. And when we find them, we go the extra mile to get the job done.
If you’ve experienced major injuries (broken bones, head trauma, internal injuries, hospital stays) but are determined to come out on top, you may be our type of client. If your number one priority is getting back on your feet and back to work as soon as possible, we may be able to get the financial security you need in the meantime. And if you’re concerned about how your injuries are affecting your family, we can take the wheel and make your legal claim resolution a hands-free (and hassle-free) process.
Stress-Free Car Accident Claims Resolution
You can’t fully recover if you’re constantly worrying about your mounting medical bills, the harassing calls from aggressive insurance adjusters, or tracking down the necessary forms and documentation to build a successful personal injury claim. And when you work with us, you don’t have to.
From the moment our car accident lawyers in Oakland take over your case, you don’t have to worry about anything but getting better. We’ll contact insurance companies, hospitals, and billing departments to tell them they’ll be dealing with us from now on.
Not only does that take a tremendous load off your shoulders, it lets us focus fully and completely on your case. That doesn’t mean you’ll be left in the dark. We’ll keep you informed (on a daily basis if necessary) and answer your phone calls and emails every time you have a question or concern. But it does mean you can stop worrying and just relax.
We’re Selective About Our Clients
We don’t take every case presented to us. Unlike those other Oakland car accident attorneys you see on TV and plastered on the sides of buildings and busses, we’re not in this job to stroke our egos. We’re here to fight for you and get the compensation you deserve.
That means we choose to work with honest clients, those who don’t buy into hype or believe the outrageous settlement claims many other lawyers promise.
We’ll fight hard to get you every penny you deserve from the at-fault driver or their insurance company, but we believe the best way to help you get back on track as quickly as possible is to be fair.
We’ll take into account your medical bills, your lost wages, your pain and suffering, and even smaller expenses like prescriptions and travel expenses to come up with a settlement value that suits your needs. Why? Because insurance companies are more likely to pay fair settlements without a fight—which means you get your money faster.
If they do resist, Sally Morin has been successfully litigating personal injury claims in California courtrooms since 1997.

Making the Most of Your Money
Getting the money you’re entitled to is only half the battle. Holding onto it is the other.
Our expert car accident attorneys in Oakland will negotiate with medical service providers on your behalf to lower your financial obligation. We know insider data about how much medical procedures and supplies actually cost. We can put pressure on these billing departments to bring your bill down to a bare minimum.
What does that mean for you? You get to keep more of the settlement or judgement you’re awarded. And while we know the money isn’t your priority (getting back to normal is) a little extra doesn’t hurt.
One Thing You Should Not Do After an Auto Accident in Oakland
It’s an insurance adjuster’s job to pay you as little as possible. It’s an ugly truth. They may contact you on the phone or in person and appear as if they’re acting on your best behalf, but they’re not. One of the worst things a car accident victim can do is speak with an adjuster before they secure the services of an experienced car accident attorney in Oakland. Everything they say to that insurance company can (and probably will) be used to minimize their claim.
Having an experienced lawyer to act as your proxy and deal directly with insurance adjusters is the best way to maximize the amount of money you may be entitled to while minimizing the amount of hassle you put yourself through.
Recovering After a Car Accident in Oakland Can Be Hard
CHP statistics show that there are roughly 240,000 car accidents in California that end with some type of injury every year. While just a fraction of them result in serious injuries, those injuries requiring ambulance transportation, ER visits, and/or hospital stays can be devastating. They throw victim’s lives into complete chaos. I’ve seen that destruction all-too-often as an Oakland auto accident attorney. But there is help.
We know it can be overwhelming trying to balance your physical recovery with your family’s financial stability. But don’t give up. Our team of experienced auto accident attorneys can help you get the compensation you deserve without all the hard work. All you should have to do is concentrate on getting back on the road again.
The Dangers of the Open Road
According to official data released by the California Office of Traffic Safety, there were 2,118 car accidents in Oakland in 2013 (the last year for which complete data was published). A huge number of those accidents were completely avoidable. In 123 cases alcohol was involved. In 287 car crashes speed was a major contributing factor. The OTS wasn’t collecting data on distracted driving at the time but safety officials say it is one of the most dangerous habits drivers engage in today.
In fact, after several years of decline, the number of total car accidents in Oakland is on the rise—likely because of distracted driving. That’s bad news for every good driver who obeys the rules of the road. It means they have to be even more wary about everyone else around them!
But you do have an ally in your corner if you’ve suffered because of someone else’s poor decisions.
