Student Collects Policy Limits Settlment from Boyfriend

Student Collects Policy Limits Settlment from Boyfriend

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 4-Nov-2015

On April 21, 2014, a twenty-one year old full time student at Sacramento State was riding with her boyfriend in his 1997 Nissan Altima. They were westbound on State Route 160 when the boyfriend hit a puddle and the car hydroplaned. The boyfriend was able to recover but hit another puddle immediately afterwards which sent him off the right shoulder of the highway. This was very frightening to the young woman and she had banged her head as well as suffered minor bruising and pain to her lower back. She recovered quickly from the trauma however, she remained anxious about riding in cars for months after the accident. Prior to this accident she was a healthy female who was known to be soft spoken and quiet student who did not drink and was a very normal student. When she contacted her boyfriend’s insurance company, she was rebuffed and advised that her case had little value. It was at this time that she contacted The Dunnion Law Firm. The Dunnion Law Firm established treatment for her and collected the medical records from the date of the accident. The attorneys thereafter presented a demand for the policy limits of her boyfriend’s policy for $50,000.00. Confronted with this evidence the insurance company capitulated and tendered the full policy limits. The Dunnion Law Firm then negotiated the young woman’s bills leaving her with an acceptable and welcomed settlement.
