Woman Denied by her Own Insurance Company

Woman Denied by her Own Insurance Company

Posted By Jim Burns || 9-Jan-2015

Registered nurse was injured in a motor vehicle accident which was not her fault. Consequently she assumed the matter was straight forward and would not cause her any problems. She went to the doctor where she was diagnosed with a shoulder injury. She submitted the claim to her own medical payments insurance provider. That’s when the nightmare started. Instead of paying the medical provider for her treatment, they sent her to a doctor of their choosing who opined that the shoulder injury was not related to the accident and denied her claim. As a result of that denial, the woman contacted The Dunnion Law Firm where the attorneys investigated the case, established treatment with a recognized orthopaedic doctor who contracted the insurance company’s doctor. The insurance company, none the less, remained recalcitrant. They only agreed to tender their policy limits after The Dunnion Law Firm attorneys took depositions which conclusively proved that the injury came from the accident. Faced with overwhelming evidence, the insurance company decided that the matter did not need to be arbitrated and that they would pay the entire policy limits available to their insured which amounted in a total award in excess of $125,000.
