Thomas J. Dunnion founder of The Dunnion Law Firm of Monterey, California has been retained to bring a lawsuit against Petrotek, Dale McAnally and Daniel Manrique, on behalf of Linda McIntyre, Esq. and her husband Michael McIntyre. Mrs. McIntyre was horrifically injured in a motor vehicle accident on September 28, 2009 on U.S. 101 in San Jose, California. Both Mr. and Mrs. McIntyre were traveling on southbound U.S. 101 north of Blossom Hill Road on their respective motorcycles. The defendants’ vehicle approached them from the northbound side of U.S. 101. The tire came off the defendants’ truck, traveled across the northbound lanes, over a guardrail and into the southbound lanes. While Mr. McIntyre nearly missed being struck, Mrs. McIntyre was unable to avoid the tire that collided with the front of her vehicle causing her to lose control and eject her onto the roadway.
Most significantly, Mrs. McIntyre suffered an amputation to her left leg just below her thigh. Additionally, she suffered a severed artery at the time of the accident and ultimately was saved by the timely response of emergency personnel. Due to this accident, to date, she has had eight surgeries, a fracture to the right knee cap, displaced femur fractures and multiple other debilitating injuries, in addition to the loss of her limb.
Mrs. McIntyre, Esq. is currently employed by the Moss Landing Harbor District as the Harbor Master. Linda McIntyre has enjoyed riding her 2007 Harley motorcycle with her husband throughout the United States. Both Mr. and Mrs. McIntyre have suffered significant psychological, emotional and physical damages due to this matter.
Thomas J. Dunnion, Esq. states "This is a horrific accident for this family. Petrotek has caused anguish and torment upon both of these people. In our clients defense, our office is determined to pursue all avenues of recovery".
