Find Out if Working with a Motorcycle Accident Attorney is Right for You
While you have options, wouldn't you prefer to work with someone who not only talks the talk...but is a former motorcycle rider too?
Choosing to work with a motorcycle accident lawyer is not an easy decision.
Whether you ride a Harley on the open road or zip around the City on a Vespa, you probably like feeling the wind on your face and the thrill of the open road. Or, maybe you just like the convenient parking in the City.
And while there are many great reasons to cruise on two wheels, doing so also makes you more vulnerable to serious traffic accidents.
A typical motorcycle accident typically results in more severe injuries than an automobile accident, and motorcycle accidents or scooter accidents often involve difficult liability issues. In order to protect your interests, it is important to work with a qualified personal injury attorney who understands the unique issues created by motorcycle accidents.
As a formerly avid motorcyclist (street and off road) for over 20 years, Sally Morin understands the unique challenges faced by motorcycle accident victims. She started on a moped at age 15, then a Honda Elite 150 at age 17, and rode a Honda CM400 motorcycle during law school and beyond.
As such, she intimately understands the need for extra protection and representation for this vulnerable community when it comes to accidents and injuries.
She has worked diligently with many victims of San Francisco motorcycle accidents (even some very close friends) to defend their right to ride safely.

If You've Been Injured in an Oakland Motorcycle Accident...
Motorcycle accidents happen everyday.
And there are more than 800,000 motorcycles registered in the state of California—one of the highest concentrations in the entire country.
Great weather, scenic roads, exciting attractions—they call to bikers from around the world.
But as a motorcycle accident attorney in Oakland, I know that your life can be turned upside down in an instant when you’re on the back of a bike.
Motorcyclists are not only more likely to be injured in crashes than motorists; they’re also more likely to suffer significant, life-threatening (or at least life-altering) injuries in those crashes.
But if you’ve been injured, an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer in Oakland can help you get the financial compensation you deserve and put you back on the road to recovery fast.
Meet Sally Morin Law, the Motorcycle Accident Specialists
Sally Morin is an experienced attorney and motorcyclist, and she and her team specialize in motorcycle accidents in Oakland.
And unlike some of the high-profile motorcycle accident attorneys in Oakland, we’re not out to make a name for ourselves. We’re here to help you get your life back on track.
That means we:
Don't you deserve a team of experienced attorneys who specialize in motorcycle accidents?
A team who knows what to expect from your case before you do?
Who knows the types of evidence you need to prove liability? And the types of documentation that must be filed to keep your case on track?
At Sally Morin Law, we can do all of that, and more.
We also know the tactics that insurance adjusters use to get victims to settle for less than they deserve.
Because we’ve helped individuals navigate the tricky legal road to financial recovery for years.
We Believe in Doing Things Differently
As a motorcyclist, you deserve better than the typical law firm.
And you deserve better a low-stress motorcycle accident claim resolution.
A hardworking person like you doesn't want to be a victim, and they don’t want to be held back by their limited knowledge of the law.
Let's face it, dealing with the complicated process of getting the compensation you deserve can simply be overwhelming.
And there’s a reason for that: The system is not on your side.
Motorcycle accidents in Oakland have to fight for what they earn.
Insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible, hospitals want to get paid right now, police investigators count yours among the dozens of accidents they’re overseeing, and legal forms were written for lawyers—not people like you.
If you try to seek compensation on your own, you’re adding insult to injury.
The stress of juggling every aspect of this complicated process can have a detrimental effect on your recovery.
And not only that, the stress piled on top of the physical pain and worries about money can put undue strain on your home life.
You don’t have to live like that.
If you’ve been injured your priority should be getting healthy, and let Sally and her team handle everything else.
Small Firm, Big Results
Sally and her team have successfully settled hundreds of cases out of court and litigated personal injury claims in court since 1997.
This has resulted in millions of dollars in financial compensation for accident victims throughout The Bay Area.
We’re so successful because our tightly knit team focuses only on specific types of personal injury cases including those stemming from motorcycle accidents in Oakland.
Cultivating a level of expertise in such a narrow field allows our lawyers to do what others often cannot: settle your case quickly.
That experience has also let us understand a little bit of what accident victims go through, the pain they suffer, the fears that plague them, the hopes have for their recovery.
It’s this personal connection with each client that fuels our passion to do the right thing.
Don’t you deserve a motorcycle accident lawyer that understands you, empathizes with you, and knows how to get what you actually?
Well, that's what you get with Sally Morin Law. But don't just take our word for it.
$145K SETTLEMENT – Oakland Motorcycle Accident (Motorist Makes Unsafe Lane Change on Bay Bridge)
A Bay Area motorcyclist was riding his motorcycle from Oakland into San Francisco on the Bay Bridge when a driver (who was on the job for a linen supply company) made an unsafe lane change. The driver made an abrupt and dangerous lane change just after the metering lights at the toll both of the Bay Bridge. He did this in front of the motorcyclist, which caused the motorcyclist to swerve into a semi tractor-trailer.
The motorcyclist sustained serious injuries in the motorcycle accident including a dislocated shoulder and a broken arm. As a result of the injuries, the Oakland motorcyclist was forced to miss his work as a nurse for three months.
He therefore sought help from the Oakland personal injury attorneys at Sally Morin Law to recover payment of his medical expenses, loss of earnings and money for the pain and suffering he endured due to the accident.
He made a full recovery from his injuries and chose to settle his case for the fair amount of $145,000 just three months after sending his initial settlement demand.
Oakland Motorcyclist Hires Sally Morin Law to Make the Best out of a $50K Policy Limit
A young East Bay motorcyclist was lane-splitting on Highway 80 when a car made a sudden, un-signaled lane change heading off the motorcyclist and causing serious injuries. The Oakland motorcyclist sought immediate assistance from Oakland personal injury attorney Sally Morin and her team. Sally discovered the driver only carried $50,000 of liability insurance coverage, which she immediately obtained.
Sadly, the motorcyclist’s injuries were serious and his medical bills at Highland Medical Center exceeded $100k. This was very daunting for the young motorcyclist who was just starting his career, and struggling to make ends meet. However, Sally Morin Law did what they do best - negotiate!
The Sally Morin Law team did the best they could with what they had (low liability insurance and high medical bills) so the client walked away with all of his bills paid AND money in his pocket. This motorcyclist was very pleased with the result, as he expected he would have to pay money out of his own pocket for the accident. Sally Morin Law is proud to have achieved such a great result (given the unfortunate circumstances) for such a wonderful client!
