A Visalia teen was a passenger in his classmate’s car on a rainy day, when the teen driver lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll over.
The teen passenger sustained a cracked vertebrae which required spinal fusion surgery, and he was hospitalized for four days. Although the teen had health insurance to pay for his medical treatment, the hospital refused to bill his health insurance and wanted reimbursement from the driver’s insurance company instead. The teen’s mom was scared and did not know what to do, so she called The Dunnion Law Firm for help.
Within 28 days of taking the teen’s case, The Dunnion Law Firm was able to assist his mom with ensuring the hospital and ambulance billed the teen’s health insurance and settled his case for the teen driver’s parent’s policy limit, getting him a six-figure settlement while he continued his physical therapy treatments.
Quite the settlement for this teen, and will no doubt help him pay for college in the Fall!
