Capitola Man Crossing 41st Ave Hit By Car, Hires Dunnion Law Firm and Receives $400,000.00 Settlement

Capitola Man Crossing 41st Ave Hit By Car, Hires Dunnion Law Firm and Receives $400,000.00 Settlement

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 13-Jan-2016

A man living in a group home in Capitola, CA had a hard life as he had major battles with schizophrenia and needed assistance to cope. His difficult life was made even more of a struggle when he was hit by a car as he lawfully crossed 41st Avenue, a hard impact which broke his shoulder and injured his knee.

Although the police found him not at fault, they noted the beer can that he had on his person at the time and described him as "drunk" in their report, as did the ER doctors, likely because they could not appreciates the man’s special needs and difficulties communicating. The man found himself soon discharged with no further treatment plan given to him, and he could barely walk due to a knee injury. He desperately needed an honest, capable, and hard working law firm on his side to be his advocate and help get him treatment for his injuries.

The Dunnion lawyers were able to get the man a $400,000.00 settlement and a handsome amount in his pocket, while also helping him get badly needed treatment he would not have otherwise received. The man now enjoys a higher quality of life than he did prior to the accident, and he wholeheartedly encourages anyone who is hurt in an accident to call The Dunnion Law Firm.
