A Fresno woman was hurt in an automobile accident in 2014. The airbag twisted the woman’s wrist and she sustained a fracture in her wrist. She was taken by ambulance to the emergency room, but they offered little assistance because she had only Medi-Cal. They referred her to a hand surgeon who only agreed to see her when she brought in $250.00 cash. The doctor took an x-ray, advised her she needed surgery, and then refused to see her again until she came up with $8,000.00 in cash to have the surgery.
The woman did not know what to do so she turned to The Dunnion Law Firm for help. The Dunnion Law Firm took the very limited medical evidence and arranged for a doctor to prepare a detailed medical report documenting the need and cost of the necessary surgery. That report was then used to obtain a policy limit settlement. The woman’s settlement gave her more than enough to pay for the treatment she needed and she stated she would have never been able to get the treatment she needed without The Dunnion Law Firm.
