A San Leandro cyclist was riding his bike to work, like he did every day, when he was cut off by an oblivious motorist. While the cyclist was riding his bike in the crosswalk at an intersection, the motorist pulled out without even looking and ran into the cyclist, knocking him to the ground. The cyclist suffered two broken ribs, a serious concussion (possible TBI) and all around bumps and bruises. He was taken by ambulance to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley. The emergency room physicians believed the head injury to be serious enough that they required the cyclist to be hospitalized overnight for observation.
The cyclist was really worried about how he was going to pay his medical bills and he had just bought his bike and wanted it replaced. He didn’t have a clue where to start. He and his family did some research online and found the Oakland personal injury attorneys at Sally Morin Law. This cyclist was so relieved to have found this legal team to help him with his bicycle accident claim.
Despite the fact the cyclist was illegally riding in a crosswalk, Sally Morin Law fought for him and got him $100,000 to compensate him for his medical expenses, wage loss and put a good chunk of money in his pocket when all was said and done.
