Our client was injured when a women in an SUV went to park on the other
side of the street our client was on, resulting in a
motocycle accident. This unsafe turn resulted in an impact with the motorcyclist at approximately
30 MPH. The motorcyclist fell to the ground bruising his hands and chest.
He was checked out at the Kern Medical Center and released. Fortunately,
he was bruised but otherwise unharmed. He contacted the woman’s
insurance carrier to seek payment for the hospital bill. The insurance
company refused stating that the treatment was not necessary for his "soft"
It was then that he contacted
The Dunnion Law Firm. The Dunnion attorney was able to explain to the insurance company that
soft-tissue injury does not mean "soft" as in it did not hurt.
Rather thru the use of medical evidence the Dunnion attorney established
that at least a portion of the injury was permanent and that the through
evaluation at the Kern Medical Center was, in fact, reasonable and necessary
in light of the 30 MPH impact. The insurance company on behalf of the
SUV driver acquiesced and paid the full policy limit of $100,000.00. The
motorcyclist was pleased noting that his policy was only $15,000.00 the
Californian minimum coverage. He said he would buy more under insured
motorist coverage and definitely call The Dunnion Law firm should he ever
have such an unfortunate encounter again.
