Woman Burned By Heater Gets a Near Six Figure Settlement

Woman Burned By Heater Gets a Near Six Figure Settlement

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 16-Apr-2012

Our client was a wedding guest at a fancy Bay Area hotel. She had been drinking and didn't see a space heater due to the dark conditions of the event.

She bumped into the heater and suffered serious 2nd degree burns on her arm. The hotel staff said she was drunk, didn't call her an ambulance and simply tried to apply ointment, which worsened the injury. Our client hired a first attorney who did not investigate her claim, and who let her bills go to collections. She was frustrated and then hired The Dunnion Law Firm. The hotel denied all responsibility and blamed our client.

We assisted the client with obtaining a plastic surgery consultation, collected the hotel's med pay funds for the client which the prior attorney failed to do, we negotiated with the hospital to pull her bill from collections, and then negotiated her bill even further upon settlement. We also secured professional studio photos of the client's injuries. The matter settled shortly after we filed suit at at mediation for a confidential sum. Thankfully, our client's scars subsided greatly and were barely visible at time of settlement, although she claimed ongoing psychological injuries due to her period of disfigurement.

Do not let the insurance company bully you around. Do not hire an inexperienced attorney who is too busy to properly assist you with documenting all

aspects of your claim. You need The Dunnion Law Firm's experience, know how, and track record for successful results on your side. Call The Dunnion Law Firm immediately when you or a loved one suffer an injury due to someone else's negligence. It's just that easy.
