Woman Obtains Six Figure Settlement Despite Being Faulted By Police

Woman Obtains Six Figure Settlement Despite Being Faulted By Police

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 28-Aug-2014

Our client pulled out from a stop sign from her own street onto a busy roadway in San Jose. The other driver was speeding and barreled into our client pushing her across the intersection and into a fence. The S.J.P.D. investigated and found our client 100% at fault for the accident! Further, the police claimed our client, who was hit directly on her driver's door, but ended up in the passenger seat, was not wearing a seat belt! In fact, despite the fact that she had multiple fractures, she was able to undo her belt and scoot over to the passenger seat as she thought the car was going to explode, but she ended up collapsing. She spent over a month in the hospital and in a rehab facility. The only witness to the accident was behind the other driver, and he admitted she was going "40-45 mph" in a 35 mph zone, yet the police ignored that crucial fact and simply concluded our client had failed to yield. Police are overworked and underpaid but their conclusion was unacceptable.

The other driver's State Farm refused to pay our client. In fact, our client's insurer paid $60,000.00 to the other driver for her injuries. Our client had nowhere to turn and no attorney wanted to represent an "at fault" driver. The Dunnion Law Firm took the case, obtained medical evidence of the very serious injuries our client sustained. The senior attorney on the case personally did a full scene investigation (it helps he was a prior insurance company investigator) and was able to recreate the accident using scientific evidence and data from Nissan, the maker of the other driver's SUV.

The Dunnion Law Firm thereafter quickly obtained a six figure policy limit settlement. Our client was very satisfied she was able to settle her claim quickly and without going to court.

If you or a loved one has serious injuries in an automobile, pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle or truck accident, you need top notch attorneys who know the law, know how to obtain evidence, know how to analyze facts and data, and know how to apply law and science to achieve maximum results. You need The Dunnion Law Firm – it's just that easy.
