The Plaintiff sustained very significant injuries in a Highway 101 accident just south of San Jose. The Defendant's insurance carrier denied coverage claiming that the defendant's vehicle was not covered by insurance at the time of the accident. The Dunnion Law Firm was retained to represent the injured motorist and a full frontal assault was initiated against the insurance company and the defendants.
The insurance carrier filed an Action in Superior Court and asked the Court to issue a ruling there was no insurance coverage. After taking the insured's deposition, it became evident that there was no coverage. Thereafter, The Dunnion Law Firm negotiated with the insurance company a stipulation that if there was no coverage, the plaintiff would receive $100,000.00. If the Court ruled there was insurance coverage, the plaintiff would receive the $750,000.00 policy limit.
Less than a month later the Court entered a judgment ruling there was no insurance coverage. Pursuant to the Stipulation, plaintiff will still receive $100,000.00 even though the defendant had no insurance coverage.
