A San Joaquin County man was a passenger in his friend’s vehicle when his friend illegally changed lanes, sideswiping a diesel truck, causing the vehicle to lose control, slamming the man into a wall. The man was taken by ambulance to the nearest emergency room, but was soon transported by helicopter to the nearest trauma center where he was treated for a severe degloving injury to his right arm. He underwent several skin graft surgeries to repair the missing skin to his arm, but he knew his medical bills were going to be substantial and did not have the money to pay them, so he called The Dunnion Law Firm for help.
In less than two months after hiring The Dunnion Law Firm, an investigation concluded the vehicle the man was a passenger in had two policies of insurance available to him, and both policies offered their limit as settlement of his claims. Thereafter, The Dunnion Law Firm obtained a $198,710.91 reduction of his medical bills, leaving only $1,000.00 due to the medical providers out of his total settlement, and putting the maximum into his pocket.
