Woman Hit By Car and Her Daughter Who Witnessed the Accident Both Receive Policy Limits

Woman Hit By Car and Her Daughter Who Witnessed the Accident Both Receive Policy Limits

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

Our client was in a crosswalk when an elderly man ran a red light striking her. She was thrown and landed in the street sustaining very serious injuries.

Our client's daughter, also a client, witnessed the entire incident and thought her mother was killed. The insurance company for the driver paid its policy limits to the mother for her injuries. However, they would not consider the daughter's claim under Dillon v. Legg for witnessing the accident because the daughter never had any counseling or treatment for her emotional distress claim. Although most attorneys do not handle Dillon v. Legg cases because they are very difficult to prove, The Dunnion Law Firm was able to keep pressure on the insurance company and they ultimately agreed to pay the daughter the full policy limits. We are happy to report that the family will now be buying a home with their settlement monies.


If you or a loved one are seriously hurt in an automobile accident, or any accident, you need aggressive attorneys who know the law and know how to enforce your rights to get you the compensation you deserve. You need The Dunnion Law Firm – it's just that easy.
