An elderly man was driving in his home town of Merced, CA, when a negligent driver struck his car, causing severe injuries that ultimately lead to the man’s death. He was 88 years old at the time of the accident and he still lived in the family home, alone, caring for himself and spending time with his eight children and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
The responsible party had no insurance. His own insurance carrier offered the $100,000.00 uninsured motorist policy limit as soon as The Dunnion Law Firm demanded it. Medicare, however, intended to take the man’s entire settlement, and after his death his families settlement.
The Dunnion Law Firm faught with Medicare for many months until they final acknowledged California law which says they were not entitled to any portion of the wrongful death proceeds. Without the help of The Dunnion Law Firm, Medicare would have taken all of the net proceeds.
