Accident and Deployed Airbag Cause of Young Girl’s Concussion and Migraines – $783,684
A father and his young daughter were driving along the back roads of King County when another driver made an improper left turn. The high-speed, t-bone collision was caught on the father’s dash-cam showing the crash as the driver crunched into the front of their vehicle.
The accident caused the passenger airbag to deploy, striking the 8-year-old girl in the face. The impact of the airbag not only caused a concussion but resulted in recurring migraines, and problems with her eyes not properly aligning.
In an effort to get medical care and treatment, the single father contacted Dunnion Law and hired them to help with his case. Within a short time, the attorneys had Fresno’s best neurologist and pediatric neuropsychologist brought in to evaluate the girl’s concussion, and resulting migraines and vision problems.
After Dunnion received the expert evaluation, and began preparation of their case for litigation, the insurance company tendered the balance of its $750,000 combined single limits policy, ultimately paying a $783,684 settlement.
