Big Rig Driver Is Injured in Crash Caused by Drunk Driver - Dunnion Obtains $275,000 Settlement for Driver's Broken Hand.

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 18-Aug-2014

A young father and big rig driver was on the freeway after dropping off a load. Suddenly a drunk driver crashes into him, injuring his hand and his back. The drunk driver is arrested and convicted for his crime. But the big rig driver’s life is changed after this accident. He is taken off work and a few months later, laid off. In the meantime, he suffers persisting pain from a broken knuckle that requires a minor surgery and unremitting back pain. He is treated within the workers compensation system for his work-related injuries, but none of the treatment improves his ongoing hand pain. He turns to The Dunnion Law Firm to file an action and to assist in the management of his medical treatment. Finally, he is referred to doctors outside of workers compensation who help improve his chronic pain. Within a few weeks of trial, The Dunnion Law Firm obtains a $275,000 settlement that pays off all of this worker’s medical bills and liens with workers compensation, and puts substantial monies in his pocket, so that he can make a fresh start in a career that does not involve truck driving. When accident victims need help battling not only negligent drivers and their insurance companies, but also workers compensation insurance companies, they can count on The Dunnion Law Firm to fight to the eve of trial and obtain the maximum settlement possible.
