Injured Passenger Wins Double the Initial Settlement Offers – $600,000
A 51-year-old male was riding as a passenger in a vehicle, when the vehicle was hit by a pickup truck whose driver was attempting to turn left.
As a result of the accident, the passenger suffered from a fracture dislocation of the right hip. Orthopedic surgery was performed to reduce traction and internal fixation of the hip. The passenger also suffered closed head injuries and physical therapy was required. The accident resulted in the passenger suffering from continued pain and an anticipated need for future hip replacements.
Dunnion Law understood the value of the losses and injuries, and rejected multiple settlement offers of $275,000 and $350,000. Because of Dunnion’s persistence and insight, they were able to recover a more sizable amount of $600,000 on behalf of the passenger.
