Pedestrian Hit In Oakland Settles For $100,000

Pedestrian Hit In Oakland Settles For $100,000

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 29-May-2014

Our client was standing with a group of friends, one of whom had an accident with another party. The defendant drove by the scene and for some reason, thought that his vehicle had been damaged by one of our client's friends. An altercation ensued and the defendant drove his vehicle towards the group trying to get the license plate of one of the vehicles but ended up hitting our client fracturing his knee. The Oakland Police Department responded and was going to file charges against the defendant for assault with a deadly weapon. Of course, he denied intentionally trying to strike our client. We spent months investigating insurance on the defendant, battling with the defendant's criminal attorney, our client's own insurance company, and we ultimately forced the defendant's criminal attorney to have her client's insurer contact us. Within two months, and despite the fact that defendant's insurer disputed liability and kept refusing to pay our client, we forced them to pay their full $100K policy to our client.

Do not be fooled by attorneys who claim they "specialize" in automobile accidents. When the client called us, we had no clue who we were going after, if there was any coverage at all, and what the facts were. The Dunnion Law Firm aggressively pursued the responsible defendant driver, investigated the civil and criminal components of the case, and were able to force the insurer to pay our client for his injuries. If you or a loved one are hurt by another, you need a tough law firm to fight for you – you need The Dunnion Law Firm – it's just that easy.
