Cupertino Man Crushed On Motorcycle

Cupertino Man Crushed On Motorcycle

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 11-Jun-2012

A Cupertino man was riding his motorcycle home from dinner when a motorist tried to cut across a busy street from a side street and hit the motorcycle nearly head on.

The man was taken by ambulance to the emergency room where he had emergency surgery on his leg, arm, and testicles. The man remained in a wheelchair unable to care for himself for more than two months before he was released home. He remained in his wheelchair for another month before he could bear weight on his leg. Because of his injured arm, he could not use crutches.

While in the hospital, bills started pouring in. Insurance companies were calling with news of no insurance coverage and denial of claims because the man did not have a valid drivers license. Unable to take care of any of the necessary business, he turned to The Dunnion Law Firm.

The Dunnion Law Firm visited the man in person three times in the first two weeks, helping him get transferred into a rehab facility, getting his classic 1959 Harley Davidson motorcycle (rebuilt in 2005) inspected, and then forced the insurance company into tendering its $500,000.00 policy limits within five weeks of when the man called The Dunnion Law Firm.

The speed of the financial recovery allowed the man to control the settlement proceeds rather than having the multiple medical providers file liens and deplete the settlement proceeds as the initial hospital billing was in excess of $472,000.00.
