A 27-year old sales representative and avid golfer was struck by a car as she was walking through her neighborhood in San Francisco, California. She was at the intersection of Gough and Filbert Streets in Russian Hill when she was struck on the right side, sending her body flying into the air.
The young woman suffered multiple fractures to her back, a fractured orbital bone and fibular head, and bruising to her head. She was rushed to the emergency room where she underwent several X-rays and CT scans confirming her injuries. Much to her dismay, the emergency room doctor informed her that her fractured back would take over 6 months to heal and gave her crutches so she could walk. She was instructed to stay home from work and was forced to wear knee and back braces to stabilize her fractured bones as she recovered.
Over the next few weeks, the paperwork started to pile up. The woman became overwhelmed trying to balance her recovery with the time needed to bring her insurance claim. To make matters even worse, she was suffering from post-concussion syndrome and had migraine headaches regularly. In pain around the clock and unable to work, the woman grew worried about her mounting medical bills, and knew she needed help.
She contacted the team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers PC and hired the firm after a free consultation with attorney Rebecca Taylor. Rebecca hit the ground running, doing everything she could to ensure the woman was able to focus exclusively on her recovery. Rebecca and her team faced some challenges in the case, including a low initial offer from the insurance company. However, the team was careful to document the sale representative’s pain and suffering and long recovery, and successfully secured almost a year of lost earnings. They maximized the case value to increase the pedestrian accident settlement, alleviated her stress, and allowed her to focus on her life. Rebecca negotiated the woman’s outstanding medical bills, and every single one was paid from the settlement funds – the woman never even had to worry about them!
The experienced pedestrian accident legal team at Sally Morin Law obtained a settlement of $150,000 for the sales representative, putting over $80,000 in her pocket after her medical bills were paid. She was beyond happy to leave the whole incident behind and move forward with a sizeable savings account!
Sally Morin is a great attorney I had worked with. She is very responsible, experienced and worked very hard to get the maximum benefit possible for the victim of vehicle accident. Last year I was struck by a running vehicle and suffered a spine injury. After some YELP research, I found Sally Morin. Before I was a little skeptical about the review s people write about. But I decided to take a chance. I felt lucky that I made a good decision hiring her as my attorney and completely satisfied with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend her as attorney for body injury as a result of vehicle accident. – Wilson S.
