Disabled Fremont Man Hurts His Shoulder All Over Again in Car Accident and Insurance Company Refuses to Pay
Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm
A disabled man from Fremont was injured in a car accident when the other driver turned in front of his car. He had suffered from chronic shoulder pain for several years before this accident. He had even undergone a surgery for his shoulder six years before. The impact from this car accident seriously aggravated his shoulder and he was faced with having to undergo yet another surgery. He would eventually have two shoulder arthroscopic surgeries. The insurance company for the other driver offered this man an unreasonably low initial offer, arguing that his shoulder problems was not due to the car accident. This man knew he needed legal help and hired The Dunnion Law Firm. His attorneys immediately filed a lawsuit and began crucial expert work up. The direct relationship between the man’s shoulder injury and the impact trauma needed to be proven. Dunnion’s experts provided opinions that undermined the insurance company’s own expert’s opinions. The case settled right before trial for $125,000—an amount that this disabled gentleman never thought he could obtain as compensation for his personal injuries.
