Dunnion Obtains $160,000 For Young San Jose Man Whose Eye Was Injured By An Airbag

Dunnion Obtains $160,000 For Young San Jose Man Whose Eye Was Injured By An Airbag

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 17-Oct-2012

A young food server and college student from San Jose suffered a painful eye injury from an air bag that deployed during an accident on the freeway. His doctors told him that his iris was torn and he would need surgery in the future. For two years he tried to treat it conservatively, but his eye pain and light sensitivity became intolerable. A week before his statute of limitations expired–two years after the accident–he contacted The Dunnion Law Firm to help him make a claim against the driver of the car he was in during the accident. He was not sure who to sue as there was a hit and run motorist and his own driver who may have some liability too. The Dunnion Law Firm immediately filed the action in court and protected their client’s causes of action against both drivers. Over the next two years, with the assistance of his attorney, the young man was finally able to get the eye surgery that he needed. When he was ready to settle, the insurance company minimized his case because he took two years to obtain the surgery; they claimed it was not necessary. The Dunnion Law Firm aggressively negotiated with the insurance company, highlighting the serious medical issues and the need for a repeat surgery. An eye expert was retained to strengthen further the young man’s claim. The insurance company finally paid $160,000.00 to this young man who had waited so long to repair his eye. He can now use his settlement funds for college tuition. The Dunnion Law Firm will fight for every last dollar to reach the maximum settlement value for all of its clients.
