A Fremont private security guard was rear-ended on his way home from work.
The company’s driver who rear-ended him claimed he was at fault
for not having working braking lights. Despite the police finding against
the company’s driver, the company continued to minimize the security
guard’s claim against their driver. This was the first of many bad
things this company would perpetrate against this innocent security guard
over the next 5 years following the accident. He hired a Fremont attorney
that his chiropractor referred him to, but he grew unhappy with this attorney.
He also grew unhappy with the chiropractor as his injuries were not getting
better after nearly a year! The man noticed that he was having trouble
walking and keeping his balance, and after a year, he was in a wheelchair.
His attorney could not explain the reason why his client now required
a wheelchair and withdrew from the case. This security guard was left
with unpaid medical bills and constant pain, so he called other attorneys
to take his case. All of them turned him down. No one wanted to spend
the money or take the time to find the medical reason for his debilitated
condition, or try to connect it to the rear-end car accident. Finally,
this security guard called the law firm that would take a chance on him.
The Dunnion Law Firm immediately went to work getting this man properly
evaluated by leading medical experts. Dunnion’s experts discovered
that the man had a rare brain condition that was aggravated by the car
accident. The company’s attorneys, of course, rejected these expert
opinions, arguing that the man simply had whiplash. After hard fought
litigation, mountains of discovery, and a full day mediation, the company
finally capitulated a few months before trial. They offered $700,000,
which this former security guard accepted. Such money will help him live
the rest of his life in a special residence for his condition. He is grateful
that one law firm among so many took its chance on his case and got him
what he needed. The Dunnion Law Firm will never let their clients down
and will obtain the maximum recovery in cases where the odds are stacked
entirely against them.
