A homeless Merced man was crossing the street, in a crosswalk, with a green
light, and a reckless driver ran him down, dragging him half way down
the block. The man woke up in the hospital not knowing what happened and
a badly fractured leg.
The man’s family turned to The Dunnion Law Firm. Although the insurance
company stated the man ran out in front of the car, there was no reliable
evidence of that fact and the driver’s statement to that effect
conflicted with the statement given to the police officer at the scene
where he said not only did he not see the pedestrian, but that he did
not know he hit anyone, or anything, until people on the street flagged him down.
The quick pressure from The Dunnion Law Firm resulted in an immediate tender
of the drivers policy limits so the man could get back to his life as
soon as possible.
