A San Jose man was rear ended by a Federal Express delivery truck in June 2009. Although the driver admitted fault at the scene and the police wrote a favorable report, when the man was contacted by the "risk management" department of Federal Express they were singing a different tune that it was "not their driver's fault". The man turned to The Dunnion Law Firm for help.
Without health insurance, this single father of four with custody of his children had a difficult time getting treatment that was desperately needed to allow him to continue to work and support his family. Without any disability insurance, the man either had to work or not put food on the table.
The Dunnion Law Firm arranged for medical treatment without payment up front, including a surgical injection procedure. The treatment was concluded with substantial improvement, but some ongoing residual problems continued to linger causing great concern knowing that he could not miss work and the income it provided. His case settled for $70,000.00, which was more than enough to pay all the medical costs and put more than $25,000.00 into the man’s pocket.
