Monterey Sales Professional Battles Her Own Insurance Company for 2 Years and Obtains $100,000

Posted By Jim Burns || 6-Jan-2015

A married sales professional was injured by an uninsured motorist in a rear-end accident. She was treated at the emergency room, underwent many months of therapy, and finally had to have shoulder surgery. The problem was that her own insurance company refused to pay her any settlement out of her uninsured motorist coverage. Her insurance company accused her of already having a shoulder problem before the accident; they pointed out that she had a previous surgery to the same shoulder. Her insurance company also claimed that the impact to the rear of her car was so minimal that no person could have gotten injured in such an accident. This sales professional turned to The Dunnion Law Firm; she was shocked and frustrated by the treatment she was getting from her insurance company. Dunnion immediately filed a lawsuit and demanded binding arbitration against the company. Litigation ensued and the parties were sharply opposed. Dunnion hired medical experts and obtained medical opinions that forced the insurance company to admit that their position was untenable. Finally, the insurance company offered the $100,000 limits to their insured. This was always the fair and equitable result expected of the company, but it took the aggressive efforts in court of Dunnion to get that result. Dunnion Law Firm will never allow insurance companies to deprive their insured of the benefits they are entitled to under their policies of insurance.
