Even though most San Francisco motorcycle accident cases do not have to go to court to be resolved, you want to be sure you hire a motorcycle lawyer who has plenty of litigation experience in San Francisco AND is willing to take your case to court if that's what is required to get you a fair result.
While many Bay Area lawyers may be perfectly capable of making an insurance claim to get a quick low-end settlement, those same lawyers may not be willing take your case to court if that what it takes to get you a solid result. Many motorcycle lawyers will just drop your case or send you to another Bay Area motorcycle injury law firm that will litigate the case. That’s why when you’re looking for a motorcycle accident attorney in San Francisco it’s important to find one up front who is no stranger to courtroom litigation.
Sally Morin has been defending motorcyclists for over 20 years, and has successfully litigated many cases in San Francisco Superior Court. While Sally and her Team understand that it’s in the best interest of most motorcycle accident victims to settle out of court, if taking your case to the next level via litigation is the best option for you then Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers is ready, willing, and able to do so.
The San Francisco motorcycle accident team at Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers recently filed a lawsuit and litigated to get a young SF motorcyclist SIX times the insurance carrier’s original pre-litigation offer.
The insurance company initially tried to place the motorcyclist at fault for the accident, but Sally and her team reversed liability to be 100% against the motorist.
Hiring a top San Francisco motorcycle accident lawyer to negotiate a good settlement with the motorist's insurance carrier will save you a lot of time and stress. Since your accident, you probably already have way too much stress and not nearly enough time.
When you are recovering from a serious motorcycle accident, you need to focus on rehabbing from your injuries and getting back to your pre-accident life. You certainly don’t need the additional stress of:
You are better off hiring a top-rated San Francisco motorcycle crash lawyer to do all of that for you, so you can focus on healing, getting back to work and trying to live your normal life.
The California statute of limitations for personal injury cases dictates how long you have to file your SF motorcycle injury claim with the courts.
Victims of California motorcycle accidents only have 2 years to file bodily injury claims and three years for property damage claims. Note that these time limits are even stricter (6 months only) if you are making a claim against a governmental entity - like a City of San Francisco agency - or one of its employees. Even though this may seem like plenty of time, it's not!
The time it takes to recover from even the most basic injuries like bone fractures can take many weeks to months. Then, if the injuries are more serious and require surgery, it could be months of treatment - surgery, rehab and maybe future hardware removal surgery - before you can stabilize your injuries and begin to get back to how you were before the accident.
And as these days, weeks and months pass you have to deal with everything that comes with being in a serious motorcycle accident: financial pressure, bill collectors, insurance companies calling and getting to and from your medical appointments without being able to ride your motorcycle. All of this on top of your normal daily responsibilities.
Before you know it, time is up and it’s too late to make your claim for the compensation you deserve.
Of course you will ask for your past damages related to your SF motorcycle crash like your medical expenses, lost earnings and cost to fix your bike. However, California law also entitles you to compensation for all provable future losses.
If your injuries were serious, you most likely will suffer some future damages. Any good San Francisco motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to prove these damages such as future medical treatment or future pain and suffering. They can even go as far as showing how your permanent or long-term injuries from your motorcycle crash could negatively affect your future earnings at your job.
These future damages are an important element to your overall financial recovery in your motorcycle accident case, so you want to be sure you get the best motorcycle accident lawyer in San Francisco to help you prove up your case.
You are a reasonable person. You aren't someone who seeks revenge or tries to get something you don't deserve. But getting in a motorcycle accident sucks! You definitely want to get the compensation you deserve and need someone by your side who can help guide you to a fair outcome.
