At Fault, Intoxicated Pedestrian Accident Victim Receives Six Figure Settlement

At Fault, Intoxicated Pedestrian Accident Victim Receives Six Figure Settlement

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 1-Nov-2010

The accident victim in this case was an intoxicated pedestrian crossing the street late at night. The other party, in a vehicle, was speeding excessively and hit him. Multiple witnesses and the Fresno Police Department blamed the pedestrian as the sole cause of the accident even though the driver admitted to having four drinks at a party immediately before the accident. The pedestrian sustained multiple serious injuries which required lengthy surgeries and recovery. Because the police report placed blame squarely on the pedestrian, no Fresno attorney would take the case. After a thorough review and investigation of the facts, The Dunnion Law Firm stepped in to help the injured pedestrian when nobody else would.

The Dunnon Law Firm filed a lawsuit against the responsible party and fought his insurance company vigorously over many months of litigation. Eventually the facts bore out that there was enough responsibility on the part of the vehicle driver to cause the insurance company to agree to pay the client the $100,000.00 policy limits. The attorney at the firm then negotiated the client's required health insurance reimbursement lien down to a significantly lower sum which greatly helped in putting a large amount of cash in our client's pocket. The client was very happy with the result because where originally it appeared the legal system was not going to help him, the attorneys at The Dunnion Law Firm stepped in and fought for his rights, causing justice to be served and compensation paid to the victim.
