Pedestrian Accidents FAQs
Before telling the insurance company about the accident, we recommend that you speak first with one of our personal injury lawyers. If you must talk to the insurance company, do not consent to being recorded, and limit your conversation to the vehicle’s condition and location so that its damage can be assessed.
Under most circumstances, the information you remember can often be enough for us to provide some guidance for your case. However, the more information you have in hand, the more effectively we can determine whether you have a case, and help get it underway.
Even though you may not be at fault for the accident, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will not pay for your medical bills, nor your property damage, until they complete their own liability and damage evaluation. Until then, you must make payment on medical costs associated with your accident or, have your health insurance pay them while your case is underway. It’s important to make sure that all of your medical providers bill your health insurance.
In California, the insurer of the at-fault party must respond and acknowledge your accident claim within 15 days. Typically, the insurance company will begin their accident assessment which can take anywhere from a few days to several months to complete depending on the parties, circumstances and other details related to the accident.

These guys are the best at what they do. This was my first time ever having to deal with a car accident. I was really unsure of how to handle the whole thing so I went on Yelp, found these guys and they lived up to the reviews. They were so caring about the type of care I was getting with the doctors. They made sure I was comfortable with the care I was receiving and they would check in periodically. They were also really good at explaining the step-by-step process and how things are done. They really made a bad experience into a positive. I would like to say thank you Travis and Cristina and their team. I will recommend them 100% to anyone and everyone if ever I need. Thank you once again.

I attended a funeral and was hit by a driver who was speeding. While recovering and putting my trust in a lawyer to be my advocate and representative, in return they said they could not represent me because I was at fault. I was crushed. The question I asked myself was “why do bad things always happen to good people?” In this case I cried while at my appointment and then began to search for any lawyer in the Bay Area that could help me. All six attorneys [I contacted] said they could not help. I called Dunnion Law and cried myself to them. They said not to worry and that they would gladly take care of me. I want to say thank you to lawyer, Tara, and the Dunnion Law team! You say what you mean, and mean what you say! You truly are the definition of “I got you!” You go above and beyond and helped me not only prove and win my case, but you also gave me my confidence that there are great and loyal lawyers. There is no lawyer team like you! I love you all, and thank you for treating my case with love before dismissing me like the others did. My favorite lawyer, Tara, is # 1 in my book. Feeling lost? Vulnerable? Go get a Dunnion Law attorney! They have your back and your best interests from Day 1.
They did an excellent job for me. I will recommend them to anyone.

I was involved in another accident while my first case was still pending. I spoke to my wonderful lawyer Glenda De Guzman and her awesome assistant, Jennifer. They helped and guided me through this whole process – easy peasy. They made me feel like I’m not alone in this and they were always a call away. I would recommend them 1000 times over anyone else! Thank you guys again for everything.

Dunnion Law helped me out so much with the accident I had in my 2013 Porsche. Yeah they got me exactly what I can get. In 60 days everything was A-okay, so I’m giving Travis a 5-star review. They got in there and they did what they were supposed to do. Thank you Dunnion Law.
