San Jose Family Settles Claim Against Drunk Driver For $250,000.00 Policy Limits

San Jose Family Settles Claim Against Drunk Driver For $250,000.00 Policy Limits

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 23-Nov-2010

A 54 year old man from San Jose was walking with his wife and children on the sidewalk on Kelly Avenue in Half Moon Bay when he was struck by a car driven by a 19 year old woman. The woman, who was drunk, careened off the roadway and struck the man. The violence of the impact caused him to be thrown four feet into the air, landing on the hood of her car. After being struck, the man was unconscious for a brief period, and he suffered multiple broken ribs, a severe cut to his head and injuries to his right shoulder and right knee. He was flown by helicopter to Stanford Medical Center for treatment. Luckily, no other family member was hit by the drunk driver when she ran off the road and hit their husband and father. The man then made a claim for his injuries and damages to the young woman's insurance company, which went unanswered. Feeling ignored by the drunk driver's insurance company, the man called the Dunnion Law Firm for help.

The Dunnion Law Firm realized the severe nature of the man's injuries and documented them to the insurance company. Further, since the man's family witnessed the injuries to their husband and father, the Dunnion Law Firm successfully obtained monetary settlements for the family members separate from the man's settlement.

Because of the Dunnion Law Firm's expertise, the man's medical bills were significantly reduced, which will allow the man and his family to have money to live on while he recovers and is able to return to his job that he loves.
