Minor Rear-end Accident Causes Bakersfield Woman With Pre-existing Condition Serious Injury

Minor Rear-end Accident Causes Bakersfield Woman With Pre-existing Condition Serious Injury

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 14-Apr-2017

It was not the type of auto accident one would expect to cause major injuries. The parties exchanged information amicably, the driver who rear-ended the Bakersfield woman admitted fault, and the police did not come to the scene. Both cars were driven away with minor damage. But this was not a run of the mill fender-bender.

Sadly, the woman who was rear-ended had a long history of stomach problems: prior hernias and colon issues. For her, the minor impact caused damage to her already poor gastrointestinal health and this aggravation of the pre-existing problems landed her on the operating table.

She had no idea how to present such a complex claim to a hostile insurance company, and when the adjuster questioned how she could even be injured, the distressed woman called the Dunnion Law Firm. The Dunnion lawyers showed how the accident affected her in a uniquely awful way and were able to obtain a six-figure policy limits settlement without litigation. Thankfully, the woman is now recovering and recommends anyone unfortunate enough to be injured by another's negligence to seek representation from the Dunnion Law Firm.
