Minor Fender Bender with a Farm Vehicle Results in $87,000 Settlement for Stay at Home Mom

Minor Fender Bender with a Farm Vehicle Results in $87,000 Settlement for Stay at Home Mom

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 31-Jan-2014

A young stay at home mother was waiting in her parked car for her working husband. He was a truck driver who drove past this parking area early in the morning everyday and his wife loved being able to give him his breakfast when he started his route. Like every morning, she waited patiently and was checking her phone. She was not seat-belted. Suddenly she felt an impact from behind. Her shoulder hit the steering wheel. When she got out of her car, she saw that it was a large haysqueeze farm vehicle that had rear-ended her as its driver tried to move out of the parking place behind her. She felt sore in her neck and shoulders, but otherwise felt fine. This young mom would complete many courses of physical therapy and suffer through injections. She finally had surgery to her shoulder. The insurance company for the haysqueeze driver refused to offer her any amount of money, claiming that she could not have possibly been injured from the minimal forces of this minor impact. The Dunnion Law Firm went to work immediately after this client was retained, hiring experts that would prove the cause of the injury and relate it to the mechanism of injury. The insurance company’s theory of causation was soundly rejected. After several months of protracted litigation and only two months from trial, The Dunnion Law Firm obtained a settlement of $87,000 for this young mom. She is once again happily bringing her husband breakfast every morning and content in the knowledge that she has been compensated for this accident. The Dunnion Law Firm will never allow an insurance company to avoid its obligation to compensate fully an injured client, no matter what their theory minimal impacts.
