If You've Been Injured in an San Jose Motorcycle Accident...
Motorcycle accidents happen everyday.
And there are more than 800,000 motorcycles registered in the state of California—one of the highest concentrations in the entire country.
The vast majority ride safely, obey the laws of the road, and don’t cause crashes. And that’s a fact.
Many times it’s the operator of the car or truck involved in the crash who is at fault.
Did you know that most motorcycle accidents in San Jose happen when drivers cross the divider and strike riders head on?
And at least 42% of collisions occur when cars making left-hand turns fail to yield to motorcycles in the oncoming lane.
But the good news is that if the other party is at-fault, they can be held financially liable.
You just need a good motorcycle accident lawyer on your side.
Don't you deserve a personal injury lawyer with motorcycle expertise who has successfully handled dozens of motorcycle accident claims in San Francisco and is now expanding services to in the Bay Area as well?
Meet Sally Morin Law, the Motorcycle Accident Specialists
Sally Morin is an experienced attorney and motorcyclist, and she and her team specialize in motorcycle accidents in Oakland.
And they're not like most motorcycle accident attorneys out there.
Let's face it, there's nothing quite like the feeling of rolling down the open road with nothing beneath you but your trusty bike and two spinning wheels.
And Sally would know because she rode bikes (from mopeds to 400cc touring bikes) for over twenty years—right from high school through college and beyond.
But as a motorcycle accident lawyer in San Jose and the Bay Area, she knows that it can be scary as well.
Not only are motorcyclists more likely to be involved in accidents than drivers, they’re much more likely to die in the event of a crash—up to 40 times more likely.
In fact, 7 cyclists paid with their lives last year in San Jose alone.
And the greater San Francisco Bay Area has seen a tremendous uptick in motorcycle accidents in just the past two years.
On just one day in September last year the CHP recorded 14 motorcycle accidents in just three-and-a-half hours!
And with that level of risk, you need a motorcycle accident attorney who knows the unique challenges faced by riders in making their personal injury claim.

$122.5k Settlement for Lane-Splitting Motorcyclist in San Jose
A young Medical Technician in the South Bay, was riding his motorcycle to work on highway 101 during rush hour traffic. He was safely lane-splitting when a car to his left abruptly changed lanes without signaling and crashed into him. The collision caused him serious injuries, including a few broken bones.
This was his first motorcycle accident. He was really stressed out, because he knew he would have to miss several weeks of work, and had mounting medical bills, not to mention insurance companies calling him non-stop. He knew he needed someone on his side, so he contacted the San Jose personal injury attorneys at Sally Morin Law to assist him with his motorcycle accident claim.
Sally and her team immediately jumped on the case and discovered that the at-fault driver had only $30,000 worth of insurance coverage; not even enough to cover his medical expenses. Not only that, but this woman's insurance carrier tried to blame the motorcyclist for causing the accident, refused to take responsibility, and tried to get him to accept only a small fraction of what his case was worth.
Sally and her team were able to more than quadruple the policy limits, getting the at-fault driver to pay almost $100k out of her own pocket. Additionally, they negotiated a large reduction of his medical bills to increase the client’s take-home money.
$75k Settlement for San Jose Software Designer + Motorcylist
A 33 year old software designer was riding his motorcycle home from work near San Jose when a large SUV merged into his lane without checking for traffic, cutting him off and hitting his motorcycle. The motorcycle spun out of control, throwing him off, before landing on the side of the highway. He was immediately transported by ambulance to the emergency room. Doctors found four fractures in his left foot and a sprained ankle.
He had never been in a motorcycle accident before, let alone need a lawyer, but he knew he needed someone to help him navigate the motorcycle insurance claims process. He was already receiving documents from cops, hospitals and insurance companies and being asked to call these places back. He needed someone on his team, so he could get back to work and make it to his medical appointments. That's when he hired the San Jose personal injury attorneys at Sally Morin Law.
After weeks of negotiations, Sally and her team settled the claim for $75,000.00 so the client was able to pay all of his medical bills, attorney’s fees, costs and still walk away with $32,000.00 in his pocket. The best thing was that he didn't have to handle ANY of the aspects of his claim. He was able to continue working while Sally's team handled everything.
