Dual Accident Cases combine for Six-Figure Settlement

Dual Accident Cases combine for Six-Figure Settlement

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 9-Sep-2009

The Dunnion Law Firm represented a client who was a pedestrian struck by a hit-and-run driver while standing with friends in a parking lot. The collision knocked the victim violently to the ground. The driver of the hit-and-run car exited her vehicle to check on the victim, then suddenly got back in her vehicle, and sped away from the scene. No one at the scene was able to obtain the identity of the fleeing at fault driver. The Dunnion Law Firm commenced an immediate investigation and determined that the client's Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage would be applicable in this case. The client’s insurance company initially outright denied the claim. A coverage battle ensued which the insurance carrier caused to drag on unnecessarily for months. During this time, the firm assisted the injury victim in obtaining the specialized medical attention she needed for her serious back and leg injuries. After aggressively prosecuting the case she eventually was able to settle her case without going to court for her policy limits of $100,000.00, plus $15,000.00 in medical coverage.

Six months after the hit-and-run accident, but prior to achieving it’s settlement, the same client was involved in a relatively minor car accident, which exacerbated the original back injury incurred in the hit-and-run accident. The defendant’s insurance company in the second accident knew of her first accident and took the position of blaming all of her injuries on that accident. They refused to make any type of offer and forced the firm to file a lawsuit against their driver. Litigation ensued until the case settled shortly before Trial at a private mediation obtaining a great six-figure settlement from the second accident insurance company. The client was so pleased with our results, she has referred her niece to the Dunnion Law Firm for her car accident case.
