Woman Gets "Taken For A Ride," Insurance Company Pays Policy

Woman Gets "Taken For A Ride," Insurance Company Pays Policy

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 12-Jun-2017

A Santa Cruz woman went on a drive with an old friend, not knowing that he had been taking drugs. Due to unsafe speed and inattentiveness the friend rolled his truck down an embankment, ejecting the woman out the window and causing injury. When she came to, her adrenaline kicked in and she scrambled up the embankment to the safety of the road, paying no attention to her serious injuries. The so-called "friend," worrying only about his insurance premiums, told the woman that if she tried to make a claim he would tell his insurance company that she wasn’t even in the vehicle. That’s when she called the Dunnion Law Firm.

The Dunnion team stepped in taking a no-nonsense approach. The insurance company was put on notice that the woman had been seriously injured by their insured’s negligence and they had a deadline to pay up. The insurance company questioned whether the woman’s injuries were related to the accident but the Dunnion team held firm, giving no credence to the insurance company’s doubts. The six figure settlement was extracted in no time, ensuring that the injured woman would be able to pay her bills despite the time she missed from work.
