A 75-year-old senior accountant suffered serious injuries in a pedestrian vs. auto accident at 6th Street and Harvard Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. Prior to the accident, she was incredibly active, still enjoyed going to work every day, and spent her free time exercising, gardening, and traveling with her family.

Unfortunately, while out on her morning walk to work, the accountant suffered a fractured wrist when a driver made a left turn through the crosswalk where she was walking. She was legally crossing the street, and the driver did not see her before striking her and knocking her to the ground. The fracture affected her dominant hand, which made it extremely difficult for her to perform even basic necessary activities, such as opening doors, typing on a computer, fastening button on her shirt, or cutting her own food. As someone who had been entirely independent prior to the accident, this was quite a blow to her lifestyle and self-confidence.  The driver who hit her had low insurance policy limits, but luckily, the accountant carried her own Underinsured Motorist coverage. She would need to coordinate between the two insurance companies, but the task was daunting. The paperwork and phone calls became overwhelming, and she needed to focus on her healing, so she hired Sally Morin Personal Injury Attorneys.

Sally and her team focused first on stepping in to take over the paperwork and handle the process so that the accountant could get the treatment she needed and get back to her work and life. Because the driver had such low insurance policy limits, the team needed to coordinate coverage between the two insurance companies. The team carefully documented the accountant’s loss of earnings and pain and suffering. They negotiated the accountant’s health insurance liens down to almost nothing, and they alleviated her stress and allowed her to focus on her life.

The experienced Los Angeles pedestrian accident legal team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Attorneys obtained a settlement of $67,000 for their client, putting over $41,000 in her pocket after paying her legal fees and all of her medical expenses were negotiated and paid. The accountant was extremely grateful to put the accident behind her and move on with her life, with a little extra money for her planned eventual retirement!

Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers provides excellent service, and makes a bad situation easier to deal with. I highly recommend using their firm (especially the LA location). – Patricia

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.”
