Personal Injury Law Firm

Handling Personal Injury Cases Exclusively Since 1975
The Dunnion Law Story

Top Personal Injury Law Firm Building Trust For Nearly 50 Years

Since 1975, Dunnion Law has been a premier personal injury firm. We have recovered over $800,000,000 for injured Californians.

The Dunnion Difference

What sets us apart from other personal injury lawyers is simple – we don’t just fight for clients, we challenge the inequity of the insurance industry.

Nearly 50 years ago we began our journey with the singular goal of fighting to prevent any insurance company from exploiting vulnerable victims for its own financial gain. Since then, we have held insurance companies, countless government entities, and other businesses financially responsible for the harm and injuries caused to our clients. We are dedicated to representing injury victims in California and protecting those individuals from injustice.


Our Mission

Our mission is to help you get your life back on track physically, emotionally, and financially. We accomplish this by:

  • helping you get the medical care you need for your physical recovery
  • shouldering the burden of the entire process so you have the emotional freedom to focus on what’s important to you, and
  • holding the responsible party financially accountable for what they have taken from you.
Dunnion Law Team

Our Founder

In 1975, Tom Dunnion founded Dunnion Law, then based in San Diego, California. He established the firm guided by the philosophy that injured Californians should have the same level of exceptional legal representation that insurance companies hire to protect their corporate and financial interests.

By focusing his practice specifically on personal injury law, Tom set out to make a difference for individuals injured in auto, big rig, pedestrian, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents. Gradually he was able to build a team of like-minded personal injury lawyers who share his commitment and passion to champion the value of clients, and liberate them of the legal burdens that frustrate their ability to live fully.

Personal Injury Firm FAQs

If you, or anyone with you, was injured in the accident, contact your doctor so they can diagnose and determine the injuries that were sustained. Keep all this information in a designated file so that you can locate and access it easily when you speak with our personal injury lawyers. When you have all the information gathered, call us and we can help determine whether you have a personal injury case.

If no injuries were sustained and only property damage occurred, these matters can usually be resolved between the insurance companies involved. However, if you later experience residual effects, such as headaches or muscle pain, it may be beneficial to see your doctor. While there, get a complete assessment of your injuries to determine whether the injuries are associated with the accident. He may also determine whether ongoing care is needed.

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.

Do not feel pressured to admit that you caused the accident or that you could have avoided it. It’s also advised that you do not discuss your injuries or how you are currently doing. It can often take days or weeks for the full extent of your injuries to manifest, and the insurance company could later use your comments against you. Taking these precautions will help strengthen your case, and will allow us to make sure you are fully compensated – something insurance companies are determined not to do.

That’s a difficult question, and ultimately depends on assessing the unique conditions of your claim, which cannot be done by an automated calculator. However, according to the All-Industry Research Advisory Council (ARAC), a typical injury case will settle for $3,262 without an attorney, or $11,939 with an attorney. Our personal injury lawyers also have a proven reputation for successfully fighting for top-dollar settlements, and have secured more than $800 million for our clients.

To get an estimate of your settlement, you can speak with one of our experienced personal injury attorneys. They will assess your claim based on its unique circumstances and provide an estimated settlement once they gather the details of your case.

It’s advised that you not settle until meeting with our personal injury team. It is likely the insurance company’s offer is well below what you truly deserve. If you accept the settlement and you later need further medical treatment or are unable to work due to your injuries, your settlement and waiver agreement can prevent you from getting additional compensation.

Dunnion Law is committed to fighting against insurers that attempt to take advantage of unrepresented individuals who may not be aware of the true value of their case. Our clients trust us to advise and guide them about whether to accept an injury settlement or not. You can speak now to one of our experienced personal injury lawyers who will offer knowledgeable insight on your settlement offer, and help assure that you receive the maximum compensation possible for your claim.
