The Dunnion Law Firm was contacted by a San Jose man’s mother regarding her son who was in the hospital and had no memory of the accident he was reportedly in. They did not know where the accident occurred, other than the hospital told them he was brought in from Tully Road.
The Dunnion Law Firm wasted no time locating the accident, identifying the defendant and the defendant’s insurance carrier, and locating a police report. Unfortunately, the police found the man to be at fault for crossing a busy San Jose street at night, in the dark, with dark clothing on, nowhere near an intersection.
The Dunnion Law Firm was not deterred by the negative police report. The Dunnion Law Firm conducted a detailed and exhaustive scene investigation and speed analysis of the defendant vehicle, along with the lighting in the area provided by the headlights of the defendant’s vehicle. This showed the defendant shared in the responsibility for the accident and if she had been paying proper attention and driving a reasonable speed she could have avoided the accident. This investigation and analysis compelled the insurance carrier to tender its $100,000.00 policy limit.
