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.
