​A 35 year-old San Francisco graphic designer was walking to work in a marked crosswalk at the intersection of Spear and Harrison Streets in the SOMA District when a car turned left and hit him.

The driver who caused the accident was distracted (suspected to be on his cellphone at the time of the accident). The impact was shocking and threw the pedestrian to the ground, so he was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital by ambulance.

He however did not sustain overly serious injuries. Fortunately, he only suffered a sprained knee and a significant laceration to his head. The pedestrian made a claim for his medical expenses, a modest loss of earnings and his pain and suffering.

He happily made the decision to settle his case for the reasonable amount of $90,000 just two months after finishing his medical treatment related to the case.

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.”
