Dunnion Client Settles with Underinsured Motorist Carrier

Dunnion Client Settles with Underinsured Motorist Carrier

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 23-Nov-2015

A 64 year old retired construction worker from Modesto, California, was injured by a teenage driver. The teenage driver was speeding and driving erratically on eastbound Brighton when he went out of control and slammed into the elderly gentleman's car.

He sustained injuries which included a right shoulder impingement syndrome and aggravated pre-existing disc protrusions at C3 T1. He also suffered an aggravation of a pre-existing bladder and prostrate issues. He underwent prostrate surgery after the accident. The causation of the prostrate surgery was argued as prior damages. Unfortunately, the teenager driver had only a $15,000.00 limited policy of insurance which was tendered by his insurance carrier. Fortunately, the elderly gentleman had purchased an additional $85,000.00 in underinsured motorist coverage. The same issues were present in the underinsured motorist claim and eventually, as a result of arguments presented by The Dunnion Law Firm, the insurance carrier agreed to tender his policy limits in the amount of $85,000.00 resulting in a gross settlement for the retired victim of this unfortunately incident, in the amount of $100,000.00
