A 34-year-old marketing professional and dedicated athlete suffered serious injuries in a pedestrian vs. automobile accident at the intersection of Buchanan Street and Chestnut Street in San Francisco, California.

The marketing professional suffered a fractured thigh bone and permanently crushed cartilage in her knee, resulting in chronic pain.  She was overwhelmed by all the paperwork and the auto insurance process, and she was concerned about the long-term and permanent implications of her knee injury. The marketing professional needed to focus on her healing, and she knew she needed help, so she hired Sally Morin Law to take over.

Sally and her team faced some challenges in the case, like a small initial offer from the auto insurance company, and a strict health insurance plan requiring full reimbursement for all medical payments. The marketing professional had permanent injuries, but the auto insurance company was valuing her case at a very low dollar amount; however, the team carefully documented her pain and suffering, and maximized the value of the case to increase the settlement. Then they pushed until they received a reduction on the lien from her health insurance company.

The experienced pedestrian accident legal team at Sally Morin Law obtained a settlement of $125,000 for the marketing professional, putting over $72,000 in the client’s pocket. She was delighted to find that all of her medical expenses were paid, with a healthy nest egg left over!

Rebecca Taylor handled my case after I was hit by a car in a pedestrian walkway. She and her team were infinitely patient, helpful and tenacious. I can’t recommend the firm highly enough. They were thorough, persistent and timely. – Janice L.

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.”
