Motorcyclist Receives $200,000.00 For Injury

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 20-Aug-2013

A 56 year old farm worker received $207,500.00 for injury sustained while riding his motorcycle in rural Kings County. The farm worker was on his way home when a car pulled out of a private driveway in front of him. He could not stop falling and injuring his fingers. He was off work for two weeks and complained of pain in his hand when he returned to work. He filed a claim with the car driver’s insurance and they offered him $10,000.00. Frustrated with the insurance claims process he hired The Dunnion Law Firm to manage his claim. The attorney filed the claim and demanded payment in excess of six figures. When the carrier would not get to that number the attorney hired an orthopedic doctor that was respected and relied on by the insurance carrier to evaluate the injury. When the doctor found that all treatment was reasonable and necessary the insurance company increased its offer. However, The Dunnion attorney felt the offer still below value and proceeded to mediation. The mediation resulted in the mediator giving a number above what the client would have settled for. The client had expressed to his attorney that he would have gladly accepted any amount over $100,000.00. He was most surprised and pleased with his attorney’s and the mediator’s ability to get the insurance carrier to pay $207,500.00 to fully resolve his personal injury claim.
