Client Tries to Settle On His Own But Turns To Dunnion For Ultimate Success

Client Tries to Settle On His Own But Turns To Dunnion For Ultimate Success

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 21-Aug-2014

Dunnion’s client had a simple rear-accident in September 2011. His truck was quickly repaired and his two passengers quickly resolved their claims for a few thousand dollars each. Client tried to settle his claim but was not satisfied with what the adjuster was offering and ultimately hired the Dunnion Law Firm to handle his case. The firm quickly learned what the problem was. Client had been 100% disabled for more than 20 years, at least partly due to failed low back surgery in the 80's. He felt that having once tried surgery, and not gotten the hoped for result, he was not going to try it again, so the treatment he got for the 2011 neck injury was minimal and hardly more than the medications he was already taking for his low back. Dunnion was no more successful in dealing with the insurance adjuster that the client had been, and filed a lawsuit to let the jury decide. Defense counsel was eventually convinced of the reality of client’s claims and a few weeks before trial was set to begin, the defendant upped its offer from an initial $12,000 to a fair $75,000.00 and the case settled. The client was thrilled with the result and satisfied that he had made the right decision to hire the Dunnion Firm.
