A 41 year old Santa Clara man was severely injured in an auto v. bicyclist accident in Santa Clara at the intersection of McCormick and El Camino Real. The collision occurred as the at-fault driver turned directly into the path of the man who was riding a bicycle. The impact was so severe it caused the injured man to sustain a compound fracture of the right tibia-fibia in addition to a large laceration on his head which required 10 stitches. He was transported to a local hospital in Santa Clara where he underwent surgery and was hospitalized for ten days.
Unfortunately, the at-fault driver had insufficient insurance limits to fully compensate the injury victim. The Dunnion Law Firm went to work immediately collecting the at-fault driver’s auto insurance, and then aggressively sought and demanded additional insurance that the client did not know he could obtain as a resident relative which resulted in a settlement over $100,000.00.
