Visalia Retirees Leisurely Afternoon Drive Turns Ugly Due to Another Driver Talking on a Cell Phone

Visalia Retirees Leisurely Afternoon Drive Turns Ugly Due to Another Driver Talking on a Cell Phone

Posted By DLF || 30-Jul-2015

A retired Visalia man was leisurely going to get a hair cut on a sunny morning in August when a man talking on the cell phone, driving a vehicle for a local governmental entity, sped through a red light slamming into the side of the man’s car. The police found the man at fault, but, the governmental agency took a different approach, defending the negligent driver to the very end, blaming the man for entering the intersection on a green light without looking to see if a car might be speeding toward the intersection and predicting someone would run a red light.

The man had fractured ribs and a collapsed lung. He spent several nights in the hospital and when he was released it was discovered he had a tear in his shoulder that required surgery.

The Dunnion Law Firm fought for the man all the way up to trial when the governmental agency finally offered a substantial settlement less than two months before trial. They disputed who was at fault and tried to blame the shoulder tear on the man’ long life of hard labor. The car slamming into him at a high rate of speed causing the driver door to crush into the man striking the man’s arm, shoulder and head with the door of the car.

When they tell you that you are at fault, and you know you are not, don’t listen to them and call The Dunnion Law Firm.
