Woman has no insurance, nobody to help her, no way to get treatment, so she turns to The Dunnion Law Firm

Woman has no insurance, nobody to help her, no way to get treatment, so she turns to The Dunnion Law Firm

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 20-Jan-2016

A young mother was walking her child pushing a stroller on a sunny spring afternoon when an elderly driver that should never be behind the wheel, ran her and the stroller off the road. The child was unhurt. The young mother, however, was struck on the left side as the car sped past her and she was thrown down an embankment into the dirt.

The elderly woman stopped but the young mother had no way to pay for medical treatment so she declined to seek medical treatment at the emergency room. The young mother’s shoulder began coming out of place over the next few months, even with the most simplest of tasks. With no way to pay for treatment, the woman went without medical care. About six months after the accident the woman had an episode of seizures and she was taken to the emergency room where it was determined she did have a significant injury to her shoulder.

The insurance carrier refused to consider the shoulder injury because there was no treatment for the first six months after the accident. The only evidence of injury was a single photo taken of the woman the day of the accident showing her left arm and back of her shoulder scraped.

The Dunnion Law Firm did not give up and a lawsuit was filed. When the insurance carrier realized their insured would not make a good witness, they finally agreed to pay their policy limits of $100,000.00 to the young mother.
