BAY AREA WOMAN’S CAR BREAKS DOWN ON I-280, THEN STRUCK BY INATTENTIVE DRIVER; DUNNION FIRM NEGOTIATES LARGE SETTLEMENT

BAY AREA WOMAN’S CAR BREAKS DOWN ON I-280, THEN STRUCK BY INATTENTIVE DRIVER; DUNNION FIRM NEGOTIATES LARGE SETTLEMENT

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 10-Oct-2016

Tired after finishing a late night shift at work, a San Mateo woman's van broke down as she made her way home on the freeway. She pulled completely off the roadway and activated her hazard lights, but that did not stop a clueless driver from veering onto the shoulder and rear ending her at nearly 65 MPH.

The woman had just returned to her job from chronic neck pain, and the accident both aggravated her original injuries and caused new ones. She developed fear of driving herself late at night, and her husband became her chauffeur in addition to working his full time job. The family was down to a single income, and incurring significant costs for the woman's treatment. Under major financial pressure and stress, the woman and her husband called the Dunnion Law Firm for help.

The Dunnion Lawyers refuted the responsible driver's insurance company arguments that the woman's pre-existing neck problems were the sole cause of her symptoms. They then obtained a significant settlement that left a significant 6-figure sum in her pocket after her bills were repaid. The couple is relieved the case had such a good outcome and are very glad they called the Dunnion Law Firm for representation.
