Fender Bender with a Big Rig Results in a $60,000 Settlement

Fender Bender with a Big Rig Results in a $60,000 Settlement

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 6-Sep-2013

A Los Banos tomato plant worker and father of three was driving through his temporary job site’s parking lot on the way home. He was suddenly side swiped by a big rig that was fortunately driving at low speed. The big rig driver never got out of his rig and drove immediately to another part of the plant. Amazed, the plant worker watched him drive away as he sat in his car calling 911. Eventually the big rig driver’s supervisor came to the plant worker and took his information, offering no explanation as to why his employee left the scene. The plant worker felt okay and planned to get his car fixed in what he thought was just a fender bender accident. But three days later he went to the emergency room feeling worsening pain in his low back. He would eventually receive several months of chiropractic care and an injection into his back. He would also lose his job because of all his time off from the injuries. In the meantime, the big rig driver’s insurance denied fault for the accident. The plant worker hired The Dunnion Law Firm to fight this denial of liability and to obtain compensation for an accident which took from him pain-free days and his job. The Dunnion Law Firm filed the lawsuit and immediately took the truck driver’s deposition. At the end of that deposition, the driver’s credibility was destroyed. Soon after, the insurance company tripled it’s original low offer. This young father of three can now spend his time looking for work with the comfort of having cash in his bank account and feeling vindicated of any blame for an accident that was never his fault.
