Hospital Receptionist from Visalia is Injured In a Crash in That Flipped the Other Car; Insurance Company Denies That the Accident was Emotionally Traumatic
Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm
Most car accident victims do not experience terrifying car crashes. The majority of accidents are simple rear-end and side impact accidents. One Visalia hospital receptionist was severely traumatized when a reckless and speeding driver impacted her and then flipped several times in front of her. She watched as that car was visibly destroyed in the road. She believed the person inside that car was dead. She carried this emotional trauma inside her for several months after the accident and sought psychiatric treatment. She had minor physical injuries, but she could not stop re-visualizing the accident. She was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress syndrome. The other driver’s insurance company dismissed her claim of PTSD and argued that she was already depressed before the accident. This mentally stressed receptionist hired The Dunnion Law Firm to fight this unreasonable insurance company. She felt she was entitled to fair compensation of both her physical and mental injuries. The Dunnion Law Firm attorneys filed a lawsuit when the driver refused to offer his $50,000 policy limits. After only a few months, the insurance company finally capitulated, preferring to avoid litigation with Dunnion. This receptionist must still deal with anxiety when she gets into a car, but she is happier to have won in her fight against an insurance company.
