This teacher was stopped at a stoplight at Monta Vista and Golden State in Turlock, California on her way home from school, when she was suddenly and without warning hit from behind by another motorist. The force of the impact pushed her into the car in front of her and caused injuries to her neck and back. She came to The Dunnion Law Firm almost a year post-accident for representation after having tried, unsuccessfully, to personally deal with the defendant’s and her own insurance companies.
As usual, both her insurance company and defendant’s insurance company were giving her the run around on paying her damages by claiming that this impact could not have caused her injuries, and that she should have fully recovered only a few weeks post-accident from her “soft tissue” injuries. To top it off, she was aware that her health insurance provider would be holding out its hand for repayment from any recovery, and she wisely knew that the entire situation warranted professional legal management and intervention. She made the right decision. After aggressively fighting with the insurance companies, we were able to recover $60,000.00 on her claim.
