Dunnion Law Firm Obtains $100,000 for Elderly Woman Who Walked in Front of a Car and Who Was Faulted by Police

Dunnion Law Firm Obtains $100,000 for Elderly Woman Who Walked in Front of a Car and Who Was Faulted by Police

Posted By Dunnion Attorney || 30-Mar-2015

A 73 year old woman was walking across the street, not in a crosswalk, when she was side-swiped along her left side by a car. There were no witnesses. The police faulted the elderly pedestrian and told her she failed to see the car that was directly in front of her. The woman suffered a simple fracture to her upper arm bone and was given a soft sling to wear. She contacted The Dunnion Law Firm because the other driver’s insurance company adjuster told her they were denying liability. She thought she would never be compensated for her arm fracture. The Dunnion Law Firm immediately collected all the medical records and reconstructed the accident. Within three weeks of taking the case and after arguing aggressively with the driver’s insurance company regarding the driver’s greater liability, the driver’s insurance company withdrew its denial of liability and offered up all of the monies under their driver’s insurance policy. The insurance company was persuaded by The Dunnion Law Firm that the driver would lose at trial. This elderly woman was overjoyed that she not only would receive a $50,000 settlement, but that she was vindicated of fault for the accident. But her story did not end there. This lovely elderly lady continued her medical treatment for her painful but healing arm fracture. She discovered later that her back was also very injured, requiring an epidural injection. When it came time to settle her claim with her own automobile insurance company’s under-insured motorist policy, her insurer fought her claim just as hard as the other driver’s insurer. This poor lady was accused again of being at fault, and again The Dunnion Law Firm came through and collected another $50,000 for their client. With a total of $100,000 in settlement monies, this lady will be able to enjoy her retirement years. The Dunnion Law Firm will never allow insurers to wrongfully withhold policy benefits simply because they dispute liability. Dunnion will fight these companies every time.
