Sons Of At Fault Mom Killed in Car Accident Obtain $140,000 Settlement

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 13-Aug-2012

The two sons of a 69 year-old Merced receptionist who was killed in a broadside traffic accident, were told by police officers and the insurance company for the other driver in the accident that they should not bother making any kind of claim as their mother was found to be 100% at fault for the accident that killed her. The other driver’s insurance company told them that their mother was not careful and drove right in front of their driver. The insurance company told them that their driver was a perfect and careful driver that day and shared no blame whatsoever for the accident. The sons hired The Dunnion Law Firm to investigate this tragic case. The Dunnion Law Firm did more than just investigate. Dunnion’s attorneys sued the driver, took his deposition and forced him to tell the truth about what happened. He was speeding far in excess of the speed limit, and he lied about it under oath. Dunnion took several depositions of witnesses and of the officers; and hired experts to reconstruct the accident. The truth was ultimately discovered: that the other driver was equally to blame for the accident. The Dunnion Law Firm settled the case for $140,000. Although nothing could ever compensate these clients for the loss of their mother, the settlement monies will help ease their families’ grief and provides the vindication they needed about who was really at fault for their dear mother’s death.
