Dunnion’s client thought she had a dilemma. She was a passenger on
a friend’s motorcycle and her driver rear-ended a motorist, causing
an accident in which the client was significantly injured. She thought
she would not be able to sustain a claim against her driver without "suing"
him and she did not want to put her friend’s assets at risk. The
Dunnion Law Firm was able to reassure the client that she could accept
an offer from the friend’s insurance company and resolve her claim,
without having to file a lawsuit against him. In addition, The Dunnion
Law Firm was able to work with the company that had paid all of the client’s
medical bills to reduce her reimbursement obligation, thus allowing the
client to collect some of the proceeds of this policy limits settlement
free and clear of any obligation to pay medical bills.
And now for the rest of the story. After completing that claim, Dunnion
agreed to try to sustain a claim against the driver in front, on the theory
that she had pulled in front of the motorcycle without warning, contributing
to the accident. This was a more difficult claim, requiring filing a lawsuit
and conducting litigation and court hearings. In the end, however, the
second driver also paid her policy limits–twice as much as the first–and
the client was thrilled with Dunnion’s services.
