Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 17-Aug-2011

An attractive and educated 60 year old retiree from the media industry was driving home from shopping on highway 580 when a Pick Up truck moved over into her lane glancing off the left side of her car. She was shaken but other wise did not think she was hurt. She freely and naively gave statements to the CHP and both her own insurance company and the insurance company for the Pick Up. When her should continued to be painful she sought the advise of an orthopedic doctor. The doctor told her she had a SLAPP lesion that needed to be repaired which was done surgically. When she next spoke to the adverse insurance company she was rebuffed. They did not want to hear about an injury and reminded her of the statements she previously gave. Frustrated she contacted The Dunnion Law Firm and declared, " now they don’t believe me". The Dunnion Law Firm filed suit and proceeded to prepare for trial. After discovery and literally at the Trial Readiness Conference before the trial judge in the Alameda County Superior Court, the adverse insurance carrier through its counsel agreed to pay over one-hundred-thousand dollars rather that proceed to trial. The defendants conceded that the minor impact could have indeed caused the minor injury to flare as shown by experts retained and presented by The Dunnion Law Firm.
