Minor Injury Results In Big Settlement

Posted By Jim Burns || 12-Mar-2015

A 42 year old service writer for Porsche was injured on September 19, 2013 while driving out for a sandwich for lunch at approximately 12:15 p.m. He was traveling well below the speed limit on Stevens Creek Blvd when a young man eager to join the Marines was hurrying to his recruiter’s office. Unfortunately in his haste he turned left across the high way directly in front of the Porsche employee. Notwithstanding the skilled driving of the Porsche employee and impact occurred to the front of both vehicles. The got out of their respective vehicles and exchanged information. The local police were called but because no one needed an ambulance they did not make a report. The injured man went home and the next day found his shoulder was painful and somewhat stiff. His wife suggested he see a doctor. When he would tell the doctors he was injured in a motor vehicle accident they refused to see him. Presumably because they thought they could be brought into a law suit. A law suit was the last thing on this man’s mind. He simply wanted to get his shoulder checked. When no one would see him and the adverse insurance company would not give him the time of day he called the Dunnion Law Firm. They took his case and assigned counsel immediately arranged for medical treatment on a lien. He was responsible for the bill but the doctor would wait until his case settled to ask for payment. While in treatment the orthopedic doctor advised that a surgery was necessary and again would await payment. After completion of his surgery and physical therapy the Dunnion attorney made a demand for settlement. The insurance company for the young military man refused to pay contending that the minor accident could not have caused the injury. Now a law suit was filed and depositions were taken as well as independent medical examination.. When the independent doctor agreed with the treating doctor the insurance company agreed to pay its full policy limits of $250,000.00 plus an additional $10,000.00 in medical payments coverage.
