$250,000 For Wheelchair-bound Man Improperly Seatbelted In A Private Transport Van

$250,000 For Wheelchair-bound Man Improperly Seatbelted In A Private Transport Van

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 13-Feb-2013

A Fresno area wheelchair-bound elderly man was seriously injured and hospitalized after falling from his chair in a private transportation van due to his not being seat-belted properly. The investigating police officers faulted the man as well as the driver of the van. The van driver denied any failure to secure the passenger. The van’s insurance company denied liability and refused to pay for any of the hospital bills. This elderly gentleman contacted The Dunnion Law Firm while he was still in the hospital, seeking help from a determined advocate who would prove he was not at fault. The Dunnion Law stepped in and fought vigorously on his behalf from the very start. Dunnion sued the van and it’s driver for negligence. Experts in seatbelts, body mechanics, and medical causation were hired. The company’s employees were put through extensive depositions. In the end, The Dunnion Law Firm prepared the case for trial, and at the eve of the setting of a trial date, obtained a $250,000 settlement for this elderly man after two years of constant denials of liability by the insurance company. This gentleman was not only vindicated of fault, but he was provided with settlement monies that will help ease the rest of his days in retirement. The Dunnion Law Firm stands up for all clients of every walk in life and will fight to the very end to obtain the compensation their clients are entitled to.
