Our client was visiting her boyfriend’s house in Stockton and both had been drinking. She went outside for a smoke and saw his dogs in the hot summer sun with no food or water. As she opened the sliding patio door, all four large dogs ran in knocking her over. Unfortunately, she fractured her ankle and needed O.R.I.F. surgery. Because she was in shock at the scene, she was confused and in severe pain, but the ambulance and E.R. personnel assumed she was simply drunk, especially since her now-ex boyfriend told everyone she was intoxicated and tried to blame her for falling on her own. His insurance company took a statement from her and twisted the story against her, and refused to pay her injury claim so she hired The Dunnion Law Firm.
We filed suit and litigated against the other side and the ex-boyfriend was caught lying in his deposition and had to admit that the dogs had knocked her down, but then tried to say he did not see the accident. We were able to get to the eve of trial and the insurance company finally caved in and paid our client when they realized there was nothing else they could do to delay and stall the matter, and were afraid to go to Court against The Dunnion Law Firm.
