Injured Security Guard Turned Down by Other Attorneys, Obtains $700,000 Settlement Because Dunnion Never Gave Up

Injured Security Guard Turned Down by Other Attorneys, Obtains $700,000 Settlement Because Dunnion Never Gave Up

Posted By DLF || 15-Jun-2015

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.
