A 42 year old man was in his parents house with three family members relaxing and watching TV in the evening. They were having a very normal family evening when suddenly at approximately 8:00 P.M. the tranquility was broken by flying debris. The house had been struck by a “Big Rig” that had gone off the road. The force of the impact was so great that the man was thrown into the door frame of his father’s bed room. When the dust settled and everyone was OK they viewed the scene. The house had structural damage and the man had some back pain. He did not go to a doctor but did decided he should consult with an attorney and called The Dunnion Law Firm. An attorney took the call and advised that he should consult with a doctor which he did. The man called back and the Dunnion attorney agreed to help him with his claim. The man was a prior felon who had spent nearly 20 years of his life behind bars. He was fearful of the law and was afraid to make his rightful claim. The Dunnion attorney assured him that the case could be handled without going to court. This assuaged the man’s fear. The Dunnion attorney made a claim on his behalf for his relatively minor injury and settled the matter in an informal mediation for $50,000.00. Unfortunately the man has returned to jail for a parole violation.
