A 36 year-old special education teacher was crossing the street in a marked crosswalk at the intersection of Divisadero and Grove Streets in San Francisco when she was struck by a car.

The pedestrian sustained a broken ankle that resulted in her being placed in a cast for several weeks and then months of physical therapy.

The driver contested liability and claimed that the pedestrian was not watching where she was going, that she “ran” into the side of the car and that she was not in the crosswalk.

Despite there being no police report and inconsistent witness statements (only the driver against the pedestrian’s word) the team of pedestrian accident lawyers at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers’ San Francisco personal injury law firm litigated the case for 18 months and was able to secure an offer of $50,000 to compensate the pedestrian.

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.”
