Rideshare Accident
Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers Obtain a $1,650,000 Settlement for a Pedestrian Hit by an Autonomous Car in San Francisco. A Nebraska native and influential figure in the Artificial Intelligence gaming industry was in San Francisco for the annual Game Developers Conference. After the conference in the early evening, he was walking to dinner downtown to meet some of his colleagues. As he approached a busy intersection, he waited for the walk signal to turn before he proceeded to cross the street. As he was crossing the street with the right of way, suddenly and out of nowhere, a BMW sped through the intersection and crashed into the pedestrian in the crosswalk at a high rate of speed. It was later learned that the woman driving the BMW had mistakenly relied on her autonomous braking system to keep her vehicle stopped. The pedestrian was violently thrown into the air, landing on the BMW’s hood, shattering its windshield, and was then flung onto the pavement. Devastatingly, the accident caused this brilliant Nebraskan to suffer catastrophic injuries to his brain and body. He sustained a severe traumatic brain injury, a shattered pelvis, and a completely ruptured knee. Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers stepped in, and vigorously fought to get their client a substantial amount of money in his pocket. Lauren, Sally and Rebecca teamed up to successfully negotiate a total settlement of $1,650,000. This included $400,000 of excess monies ($300,000 as a personal contribution from the 3rd party and $100,000 in uninsured motorist coverage) in addition to the $1,250,000 of policy limit funds.

Scooter Accident
A 40 year-old a self-employed graphic artist was riding his scooter on a small side street in San Francisco just a block from his home. The electrical company was doing some major electrical work in the neighborhood, so they hired a concrete company to excavate the road to get to the electrical wiring in the neighborhood. This road construction was being conducted by the concrete company during the daytime. However, rather than properly pave over the large holes they cut into the street, the company left large sections of the street severely uneven and dangerous in the evening. The company placed no signs in the street to give warning of the dangerous conditions. Given the poor lighting on the street, the lack of warning signs and the large “dip” left in the road surface by the concrete company, the graphic artist’s front tire went into the trench as he was heading home. As a result, he was thrown from his scooter several feet into the street sustaining serious personal injuries including fracturing to both bones in his left forearm, which required surgical repair and physical therapy. Sally Morin attempted to settle the case early to help her client put the accident behind him, but the concrete company would not make a sufficient offer. Sally and her San Francisco personal injury team asked for just under a million dollars to start the negotiations, but the concrete company’s top offer was only $325,000. This was not a fair offer, so Sally and her client chose to file the lawsuit and push for fairness. After a few months of litigation and Sally Morin diligently pushing the concrete company’s attorney to make a fair offer, the parties were able to settle the case for $750,000.00.

Motorcycle Accident
A 41 year-old husband, father, and avid motorcyclist, was riding his motorcycle straight through a green light, when a minivan coming the opposite direction made a left turn, cutting him off. He was thrown over the hood of the minivan and landed on his back in the roadway. He was taken by ambulance to Kaiser emergency room, but doctors there quickly realized he would need a facility equipped with a trauma department due to his very serious injuries. He was therefore transported to Highland Medical Center (the top trauma center in the San Francisco East Bay area) for treatment of his debilitating injuries – a pelvic/hip fracture, among others. Doctors at Highland ordered surgery to place hardware in order to repair the break. Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers immediately hired an accident reconstruction expert to study the accident scene and give a more accurate liability decision using actual details from the scene of the accident. This study found our client completely free from liability, which caused the insurance company to reconsider their position, accept full liability and tender the driver’s policy limits of $50,000.00. Because this amount was insufficient to even begin to cover our client’s medical bills, which had risen to six figures, our office continued to search for coverage, which could compensate our client. We were able to find that the driver who hit our client was in the course and scope of her work duties at the time of the accident. We were, therefore, able to make a claim against the employer’s insurance. Their opening offer, after being presented with all of the facts of the case, was $125,000.00 (just $75,000 more than the driver’s policy limits offer) – again, nothing close to what would cover our client’s losses. Our office was able to negotiate this figure from $125,000.00 to $425,000.00 in total, allowing our client to take home over $225,000.00 for his pain and suffering, after all of his medical bills and attorney’s fees and costs were paid.
