It was a sunny fall afternoon when a Seaside, California, when student
was on his way to school riding his skateboard, when a car, driven by
an inattentive man, struck the boy as he was crossing the street in an
unmarked crosswalk. The man claimed to have insurance, but, it turned
out that his insurance had been cancelled.
The boy had a broken leg and hit his head. He received appropriate medical
care, but since the negligent driver had no insurance, what could they
do? The boy’s family contacted The Dunnion Law Firm.
The Dunnion Law Firm employs attorneys that specialize in personal injury
and insurance claim. It did not take long to identify a source of recovery
on a policy of insurance that the boy’s family had on its own vehicles.
Even though those vehicles were not involved in the accident, most automobile
policies cover the insureds when they are pedestrians.
