Valet Injured At Parking Station By Elderly Driver

Valet Injured At Parking Station By Elderly Driver

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 30-May-2013

A valet working near her parking station leaned in to to speak with an elderly driver. Suddenly, the car accelerated and the worker was struck by the mirror. She fell to the ground in pain. Unfortunately, that was just the beginning of her pain. She went to the hospital and learned that she had strained her back. She made a claim with her employers workers compensation carrier and they slowly paid some of her bills. The elderly driver’s insurance company refused to pay telling her she had workers compensation coverage to take care of her. This did not sound correct to the injured woman and she hired The Dunnion Law Firm. The attorneys immediately demanded payment from the automobile driver’s insurance carrier. They refused to pay initially but when threatened with a lawsuit agreed to pay policy limits of $100,000.00 dollars. The workers compensation carrier demanded $47,000.00 for payments they made to the worker. The attorneys negotiated the lien claim to $22,500.00 and after all bills, fees and cost were paid and the worker had fully recovered, she netted over $36,000.00 in her pocket plus $4,000.00 in school vouchers so she could continue her education.
