Our client, a 36 year old man, with no prior health issues, was struck by a drunk driver on Blythe Avenue, north of Olive Avenue in the County of Fresno, California. It was a little after 9:00 p.m. when our client was driving northbound on Blythe Avenue. Suddenly and without warning, the southbound driver swerved into the left northbound lane directly into our client’s path. The collision caused our client’s vehicle to roll over and collide again with a chain link fence. The driver of the other vehicle was so intoxicated that he did not even know what had happened. Both vehicles were totaled in the collision.
Our client waited until the following day to get emergency treatment. Luckily he only suffered a sprain/strain to his neck and lower back. Thereafter, he received treatment in the form of physical therapy, chiropractic care, and massage. An orthopedic evaluation confirmed that he had no damage to his spine. Thus, treatment was limited in this case. However, the Dunnion Law Firm was able to obtain a favorable settlement based on the shock, pain and suffering endured in this head on collision.
