WOMAN RECOVERS FROM FAMILY TRAGEDY

WOMAN RECOVERS FROM FAMILY TRAGEDY

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 29-Feb-2016

A 55 year old woman who was separated from her husband suffered a most unfortunate incident on September 21, 2015, in Fresno, California. Though separated from her husband, the woman kept in a close friendly relationship. No divorce proceedings had been filed by either party. In fact, they would frequently help each other with their domestic chores around their respective homes. On such an occasion on September 21, 2015, when the woman’s husband came by and picked her up in the early morning hours on his motorcycle to ride over to his house to do some gardening and general clean up. In the blink of an eye, her life was irreversibly changed. As the motorcyclist proceeded on Blackstone Avenue, a vehicle suddenly pulled out from a stop sign directly in front of the motorcycle. The motorcyclist applied his brakes and attempted to avoid a collision but the crash could not be averted. The impact was severe, throwing both the woman and her husband from the Harley Davidson motorcycle they were riding. The truck sustained front end damage and the husband wound up in front of the truck, lying in a pool of blood. Good samaritans summoned paramedics who came to the scene. They found the husband without a pulse and woman with multiple fractures and severe life threatening injuries. They were loaded into ambulances and rushed to the emergency facilities of the hospital. There the husband was pronounced dead and the woman underwent surgery for repair of her fractures. The woman, through her mother, contacted The Dunnion Law Firm who facilitated reduction of her medical bills, as well as procuring a wrongful death policy limits settlement that the woman shared with the daughter of her husband from a prior marriage. The relationship of the heirs to the deceased and the complexities of the medical treatment and future needs of the woman were all handled by The Dunnion Law Firm attorney and the firm’s highly skilled staff. For this, the woman was grateful. It was acknowledge by all concerned that no amount of money could erase that tragic day, September 21, 2015.
