A 12 year old boy riding his skateboard on the shoulder of Road 80 outside
Dinuba suddenly found his skateboard rolling out into the roadway. The
boy looked for oncoming cars and nobody was close so he ran out into the
roadway to get the skateboard. As he was walking back to the shoulder
of the road, a car struck him.
The initial indication from the driver’s insurance company was the
boy was at fault, obviously. He was in the roadway and not watching for
traffic. They denied the claim.
The Dunnion Law Firm never backed down. Trial was set and the parties were
ordered to mediation. Once the insurance company’s attorney completed
depositions of the parties he recommended that the carrier change its
settlement position and even before the mediation they tendered their
policy limits of $250,000.00.
Don’t let those insurance companies bully you. Call The Dunnion Law
Firm and if there is a way to get you a settlement, we will find it.
