A Merced County man woke up in the hospital in Modesto with no memory of how he got there. The man was told by hospital staff that he was in the street, in the middle of the night, and he was hit by a car. They had no other details to provide to him. He had no memory of the days before he regained consciousness. The man’s family tried to gather details. With no success they turned to The Dunnion Law Firm for help.
The Dunnion Law Firm was able to narrow down the date and approximate time of the accident and locate a police report in the man’s home town. The man was reported to be extremely intoxicated and was hit in the middle of a block, nowhere near a sidewalk, and found to be at fault by the investigating police officer. The officer clearly wrote the report in an effort to protect the driver of the car.
Despite the man’s intoxication, the unfavorable police report, negative facts, and the man’s lack of memory about the accident, The Dunnion Law Firm was able to develope enough facts to establish liability on the vehicle driver resulting ultimately in the insurance company paying their insured’s policy limits in less than 90 days.
