Grandmother’s Weight Blamed for Car Accident Injury; Dunnion Obtains Insurance Policy $50,000
Posted By DLF
A Visalia grandmother was seated as a passenger in a car carrying her grandchildren. One of her grandchildren, who was autistic, began to cry when the car started to brake hard for an accident ahead. As the car slowed and this grandmother was turned in her seat to comfort her grandson, their car was hit hard from behind. The teen driver who caused the accident panicked at the scene and told them she didn’t want their Dad to know. If only the problem with the driver was all that this grandmother had to deal with on that hot summer afternoon. Over the course of the next 3 years, the teen’s insurance company would deny that the rear-end car accident caused any of the grandmother’s chronic back pain. They blamed her obesity. They blamed her prior bad back. They blamed her for not sitting in the car correctly. This woman was blamed for her own injuries! The Dunnion Law Firm fought Allstate aggressively in court on behalf of their client. This grandmother had to undergo deposition and medical examination to prove her case. Finally, close to trial, Allstate relented when faced with a medical expert that Dunnion hired to destroy Allstate’s medical theory of the case. This grandmother’s outstanding medical bills are all paid and she can focus her life again on her still growing grandchildren.
