Fresno Gambler Injures Motorcyclist And Loses Big

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

In the early morning hours of July 22, 2011 a 34 year old man suffered minor injuries in a motorcycle accident on Friant Road. He was taking a leisurely ride after visiting friends in the foothills on this warm summer night. He and his friends were talking about their motorcycles, laughing and complementing him on all the accessory LED lights he had installed on his Yamaha V-Star. The motorcycle was the only one like it in town. He had bragged that the motorcycle was highly visible and "lit up like a Christmas tree", which makes it even harder to believe that the accident happened at all. As he was riding past Table Mountain Indian Casino a man who had been gambling there failed to see him and pulled out right in front of him. How could he miss the "Chirstmas Tree"? He said he did not see the motorcycle as he drove his Nissan Altima out of the parking lot. The motorcycle rider locked both brakes but could not avoid the collision. He suffered minor abrasions and was every upset that his pride and joy Star motorcycle was damaged. It was still rideable so they exchanged information and he went home. The next morning, feeling sore, he went to the emergency room, was treated and released. He then called his insurance carrier to take care of his motorcycle property damage. This was his first claim so he was surprised when they told him that all of his accessories would not be covered. He had spent over five-thousand dollars on the lights alone. He decided to call an attorney to help and selected the Dunnion Law Firm. When he called he was advised that they would help him with his property damage for free and would help him with his bodily injury claim on a contingency basis. He had to pay nothing to get started. Soon the Dunnion Law Firm counsel contacted the adverse driver’s insurance company and made them pay the full value for the property damage. They then assisted him with finding a doctor to evaluate his shoulder which did not spontaneously heal as he was told by the emergency room doctor. After his treatment was complete the Dunnion Law Firm attorney made a full policy limits settlement of $250,000 with the adverse insurance company for the bodily injury claim in addition to the full value of his property damage claim. He was quite ecstatic.
