Our client, a pedestrian, was jaywalking as he stepped onto a busy street in Fresno, California, outside of a crosswalk. The other party was driving a Toyota Corolla. She failed to see our client in broad daylight and she struck him. As a result, our clients suffered multiple serious injuries to his spine and head. The Fresno P.D. investigated and spoke with witness who blamed our client. The driver’s insurer rejected his claim, even though our client was hospitalized and underwent surgery. Our client’s sister wanted justice for her son, so she contacted The Dunnion Law Firm.
We investigated the case and secured the proper medical evidence of his extensive injuries. We aggressively negotiated with the driver’s insurance company resulting in insurance company reversing their liability position. They agreed to accept “only 85%” fault for causing the accident, and quickly tendered their policy limits of $100K. After further investigation, the driver had no assets or property to pursue.In the end, our client was able to obtain justice and was compensated thanks to the efforts of The Dunnion Law Firm. We wish him the best and hope he now gets his life back on track for the better.
