At Sally Morin Law, we are accident attorneys that exclusively represent clients who have been seriously injured in a traffic accident by another party from our locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose and Oakland, California. You can learn more about our unique approach to personal injury case management on our About page.
Personal injury lawyers typically handle those cases that fall under "tort law".
Common examples include traffic accidents such as:
At Sally Morin Law, our team works on behalf of traffic accident clients who have been injured due to another party's negligence.
Law firms that specialize in personal injury primary responsibility is to work in the client's best interests to recover damages for injuries sustained due to the negligence of another party.
This may include, but is not limited to
1. First, you must prove that the other party was liable for your injuries. In addition to your police report, this may include witness testimonials or evidence collected on the scene.
2. You must prove how the harm was caused -- and that it's not a pre-existing condition.
3. And last but not least , you will need to prove the extent of your damages, whether physical injury, lost work, wages, and quality of life.
While some cases go to trial, most do not. In fact, at Sally Morin Law we have only had about 1% of our cases ever need to go to trial.
And that's because more often than not, a skilled personal injury lawyer is able to negotiate a fair settlement on the client's behalf without the added time and cost of litigation.
Beware of attorneys who love taking cases to trial. This is usually out of their own desire to see their name in print or just to line their own pockets.
Remember, there is no guarantee that taking a case to trial will result in a larger reward. And since cases that go to trial are on a higher fee scale, it often means the attorney takes home more and clients take home less.
Most personal injury law firms work on a contingency fee basis, which is to say they don't get paid anything unless they favorably settle or win your case.
Typically, fees are 33.3% of the reward for cases that are settled, and 40% of those that go to trial. (Remember, this very rare.)
At Sally Morin Law, we put our client's recovery first. That's why we don't take a fee percentage from the portion of your settlement that covers the damage to your property. We also ensure that you never walk away owing us any money.

***Found Sally through all the positive reviews and I am glad I did!!!*** Her and her team made everything really easy and they are great at staying in contact with you. I was really busy with work at the time and wasn't able to meet them in person till almost the end of my case and they were completely supportive of that. Worked over the phone, through emails, and were in constant contact with updates and to just see how I was doing with my recovery, for nearly 2 straight years!! Sally really fought for me with the insurance (both mine and the other guys) and was extremely fair when it came to my settlement.
Terrible circumstances sometimes yield great surprises - struck by a car and receiving tier 1 trauma services at SF General I found the tel number to Sally Morin Law... Lauren, Sally and Rebecca were better than family in steering me through the 6 months that followed. I recommend this firm without issue. I have never had a better experience working with attorneys or legal staff who were more professional, effective, or nice. I don't wish my particular circumstances on anyone but if you ever find yourself in the same position you cannot have a finer personal injury attorney helping you than Sally Morin Law. Unquestionably the best!
While riding my bike to work, I was struck by a motorist who ran a red light. The driver stayed on the scene and seemed genuinely concerned about my well-being. However, when I sent my claim to her insurance, she denied the events as I, and my witnesses, reported them. Sally's expertise was instrumental in dealing with the insurance company to get a good settlement. She is very responsive, a true professional, and just a lovely person to work with. I would recommend Sally Morin in a heart-beat.
