In our Personal Injury Law Firm in Sacramento, I often find myself inundated with stories of accidents, injustices, and pain. The bright side of this work comes however, when our injured clients are able to move on with their lives into the direction of new dreams, hopes and futures.
As I was reading through the web today, I came across an article that reflected this feeling and I have decided to step aside from the car accidents and brain injuries for a moment to share with you a woman who has overcome her own personal injury.
The woman’s name is Michelle Shackelford and she is from our own Sacramento area. Michelle had a career as a CHP motorcycle officer for many years, following a dream she always had held growing up. One day, however, her life as she had known it suddenly changed. The news article explained that while attending a police duty on the offramp of Madison Avenue, Michelle was hit by a reckless driver. Michelle wound up critically injured after being launched from her motorcycle and then, subsequently, hit by her own rolling bike.
Like many of our clients, Michelle had a long road ahead of her of rehabilitation and recovery. And, as if often happens, Michelle’s career was cut short and was placed in a position to find a new direction for her life.
The article described Michelle’s new life, now new owner of a gym in Sacramento called Fitness Together. She loves her new career and path. Michelle now uses her accident as a way to help others, taking her experiences from her many days in rehab and physical therapy to assist and advise her gym members.
I love this story because it explains a real-life account of someone conquering a seemingly devastating injury. Please know that there is always hope and life even in the gravest of circumstances.

Don’t Let Your Statute Of Limitations Run Out
In California, the law imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date the incident. Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long.
