A 22-year-old software engineer was struck by a driver as he stepped down from a Muni train at 47th Avenue and Judah Street in San Francisco.

The software engineer suffered a severely fractured ankle, requiring surgery. He knew it would be a long time before he could get back to rock climbing and creating visual art – he couldn’t even walk with the fractured ankle. The software engineer needed to focus on his healing, but he was having trouble with his health insurance company, and the auto insurance claims process was overwhelming. He knew he needed help from someone experienced with pedestrian accidents in San Francisco, so he hired Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers. Sally and her team have a track record of success with great motorcycle accident settlements for their clients.

Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers Maximized the Settlement Value of the Ankle Fracture

Sally and her team overcame some challenges in the case right off the bat, as they stepped up and fought for the software engineer. The at-fault driver’s insurance company initially attempted to settle the case for a very low number, but the team pushed hard throughout negotiations to maximize the software engineer’s settlement to compensate for his pain and suffering from the fractured ankle injury.

The experienced pedestrian accident legal team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers obtained a settlement of $215,000.00 for this software engineer, putting over $108,859.00 in his pocket.

Reducing Your Medical Bills is Key to Maximizing Your Net Recovery

The team also followed up with all of his medical providers and his health insurance company. They negotiated reductions for his outstanding bills and remitted payment, protecting the young man’s credit and setting him up for future success.

The software engineer was happy to be able to get back to the gym, and to his creative endeavors, with an extra financial cushion. The team felt great helping a young professional get back on track!
