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.
