A 74 year old Springville, CA resident was driving her car on a rural road
on a cold winter afternoon when she became the latest victim of a careless
driver talking on her cell phone and not paying attention to driving their
car. The woman attempted a right turn on a red light but failed to notice
the car driving on the cross street with a green light going through the
The Springville resident attempted to swerve to the left but was struck
on the right side of her car, causing her car to spin around, travel over
the median and directly into the path of oncoming traffic where she was
hit a second time.
The woman was taken by ambulance to the emergency room where it was later
determined she had multiple fractured ribs and a fractured vertebra.
The woman tried to deal with the negligent driver’s insurance, but
they confused her so bad she did not know what they were doing or if they
were going to help her. The aggravation of dealing with the insurance
carrier, on top of the extreme pain their insured had caused, was too
much for her and she sought help from her daughter. Together, they could
not understand what was going on or which insurance company was going
to do what. It seemed the insurance people were all speaking a foreign language.
The family knew people that had been represented by The Dunnion Law Firm
so they turned to Mr. Dunnion for help. There were multiple insurance
issues to resolve, including policy limits, underinsured motorist, medical
payments coverage, reimbursement of Medicare, reimbursement to supplemental
health insurance, reimbursement for medical payments coverage, as well
as multiple providers to deal with.
The Springville woman was so relieved to have someone else handle all those
confusing issues for her so she could focus on her health. Thankfully,
she recovered relatively soon and was pleased to receive such a nice net
settlement after all her expenses and obligation for repayment were satisfied.
