A Fresno area police officer was injured while working in undercover vehicle theft recovery unit. The 36 year old patrolman was driving an unmarked undercover vehicle in rural Tulare County when he entered an uncontrolled intersection traveling at approximately 20 miles per hour. He checked that he was clear of traffic to his left as he proceeded into the intersection. Suddenly without warning a large pick up truck blasted into the intersection striking the officer’s vehicle. The officer estimated the speed of the pick up at 70 miles per hour. This was a residential area and as such the speed limit was 25 miles per hour. The force of the impact was great and it catapulted the officer’s vehicle off the road through a fence and onto a private yard. The pick up remained in the roadway. The officer was stunned and sustained minor cuts to his hands and face from the shattered windows. An ambulance and a uniformed officer came to the scene. After being checked out by paramedics the officer was driven to the hospital a Sargent that was sent to investigate the accident. The investigation disclosed that the officer was not at fault and that the speeding pick up was in violation of the vehicle code for failing to yield to the officer’s vehicle on his left. Notwithstanding his knowledge of law enforcement the officer decided to hire a respectable recognized law firm. He chose The Dunnion Law Firm noting that they have handled other claims for officers within his department.

They investigated the accident and determined the available insurance coverage applicable to the pick up truck in the amount of $100,000.00. The Dunnion attorney then negotiated the workers compensation carriers subrogation interest to maximize the recovery to the officer. The officer with 20 years on the force stated that he was very pleased that he decided to hire the Dunnion Law firm for its expertise.
