An Introduction to Personal Injury Law


A personal injury attorney represents clients who have been injured by another negligent party. That party may be another person, people, company, or even government agency.

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 California personal injury office locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose and Oakland, California

What types of cases do personal injury law firms represent?

Personal injury lawyers typically handle those cases that fall under "tort law". 

Common examples include traffic accidents such as:

Or NON-traffic accidents such as:

  • Work Injuries
  • Injuries from defective products

  • Dog bites
  • Slip-n-falls

Traffic Accident Attorneys from Sally Morin Law

At Sally Morin Law, our team works on behalf of traffic accident clients who have been injured due to another party's negligence.

What type of help can I get for my personal injury case?

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

  • evaluating a prospective client's personal injury case 
  • interviewing witnesses
  • collecting evidence
  • filing legal complaints
  • negotiating a settlement with insurance adjusters
  • negotiating a reduction in your medical bills
  • building and arguing cases in state court
  • drafting legal documents
  • and offering legal advice

What do I need to do to prove damages in my personal injury claim?

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.

How often do cases go to trial?

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. 

How do legal fees work?

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.

Patient, professional, trustworthy, and sincere.

I was struck by a cab while walking home from class, which launched a three year-long case to reclaim some justice. Because of my injuries, everything in my life felt like it had been turned upside down. However, throughout the case, Sally was nothing but incredibly patient, professional, trustworthy, and sincere. I felt very fortunate to have her on my side.
