Our client, a 39 year old mother of four, was driving her mid-sized sedan in Tulare when a drunk driver blew through a stop sign and careened directly into our client’s path of travel. Our client was unable to stop in time to avoid a collision with the drunk driver. The force of the impact was so great that it spun our client’s vehicle more than 180 degrees, caused the air bags to deploy, and rendered her vehicle a total loss. The drunk driver, who later remembered nothing of the accident, fled the scene after the collision. Fortunately, police later apprehended the drunk driver who was arrested for driving under the influence.
Our client suffered multiple injuries in the collision, including nose pain from being hit in the face by the airbag, numerous sprains, and a non-displaced fracture of a small bone in the top of her foot. She had to return to the emergency room multiple times because of her pain, and underwent months of chiropractic manipulation and orthopedic evaluations to treat her accident-related injuries.
Because of our knowledge and expertise, The Dunnion Law Firm was able to negotiate a $50,000.00 settlement with the drunk driver’s insurance company. But we didn’t stop there! We used our experience and knowledge in the legal and medical fields to negotiate down our client’s outstanding medical bills, and she ended up with over $20,000.00 in her pocket!
