Gary Parvin, a 51-year-old Sacramento resident, was making a withdrawal from an ATM at a Wells Fargo bank on March 7th, 2008, when a car jumped a curb, hitting Parvin and pinning him up against the ATM. The impact from the car severed his right leg and severly broke his left leg, permanently putting him in a wheel chair.
The elderly woman who allegedly hit Parvin, had only a 15,000 dollar liability coverage. Which leaves Parvin paying for a majority of his catastrophic injury. He is now also trying to sue Wells Fargo.
Having no insurance or having under insurance can lead to extremely unfortunate consequences. If this woman would have had a higher liability coverage Gary Parvin wouldn’t have to struggle to get money for his injuries.
