If you have been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you are not alone.

Are You Prepared for the Financial Costs Ahead?
Unfortunately, many victims of bike accidents in San Jose can’t just walk off their injuries or slap a bandage on them.
And about 5% of bicycle accidents in Oakland are classified as “severe.”
Injuries range from deep lacerations to broken bones and head/brain injuries—or some combination of any of those.
Worse yet, many such severe injuries require surgery, long-term recovery and rehabilitation—perhaps leaving the victim with lifelong disabilities.
And all of this costs money:
If you've been injured in a bicycle accident in San Jose, a qualified bicycle accident attorney can help you overcome those financial worries while you struggle to recover.

$115K SETTLEMENT for Out-of-State CEO Hit While Riding in Silicon Valley Charity Bike Ride
The CEO for a Colorado tech start-up broke his collarbone when he was cut off by a car while he was riding in a 100 mile charity bicycle ride in the Silicon Valley. This out-of-stater didn't know where to turn or what to do. He was not only running a successful company, but was now juggling medical appointments and the logistics of a bike accident insurance claim.
The San Jose personal injury attorneys at Sally Morin Law provided excellent long-distance representation to get the cyclist a fair resolution of the case. Unfortunately, the driver’s insurance company decided to play hardball, which led the case into several months of litigation.
Fortunately, Sally and her team were able to get a great settlement of $115,000 prior to trial. They also made sure this client would not have to take more and time and money out of his life to travel back to California to relive the traumatic experience in a jury trial. This client was very grateful to receive cash in his pocket without ever having to visit California for his case.
$50K POLICY LIMITS SETTLEMENT – Bicycle Accident Case (Left-Turn Collision) in San Mateo
A 51 year-old cyclist who was riding with his cycling club in San Mateo was a hit by a car making a left turn in front of the cyclist into a parking lot. Apparently, the driver did not see the cyclist due to “sun in his eyes”.
As a result of the accident, the cyclist suffered a broken ankle and fractured tibia which were repaired by surgery at Stanford Medical Center.
He reached out to the San Jose personal injury attorneys at Sally Morin Law for recovery of his medical expenses and a modest loss of earnings. Sally and her team did the best they could with the limited funds available.
The motorist only carried the minimum liability coverage limits allow in California – $15,000. The cyclist carried $50,000 in underinsured motorist coverage, so he recovered the full $15,000 from the motorist and $35,000 from his own policy.
Sally and her team worked hard to get a good amount of money in the client's pocket when all was said and done.
