Nightmare Trip to Reno

Nightmare Trip to Reno

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 14-Jan-2011

When an elderly bay area woman decided on a trip to Reno with her sister, she never thought she would end up in the hospital instead of a casino. The driver, her sister, was not injured when she lost control of the car causing it to go off the road on Interstate 80 near Reno, but our client, the 86 year old passenger was already in bad health and she was admitted to Renown Regional Medical Center for several days following the accident. Of course the idea of one sister suing the other was anathema to these ladies and it never crossed their minds. But the injured woman had a guardian and he approached The Dunnion Law Firm. Was there a way to make a claim for the injured sister without involving the driver sister? Indeed there was, and attorneys at the law firm worked for more than a year to put together a package for their client that when presented to the insurance company, resulted in a settlement of $160,000.00, enough to pay for much of the care that the elderly sister now needs on a daily basis. Her family was delighted that the firm’s attorneys could do this for her without involving these ladies in intra family litigation.
