Settlement for Portland Pedestrian Injured in Hit and Run

Our client in this dramatic pedestrian hit-and-run case was reported to have “flown through the air” after being hit by a driver on the roadway where he was walking. The driver sped off after the accident occurred. In the meantime, our client was transported by ambulance from the accident site to a local hospital, where he was admitted into intensive care. He had suffered serious injuries including a ruptured spleen, renal injuries, rib fractures, and multiple contusions and abrasions. He was discharged five days later.

Portland Oregon Serious Accident LawyersTwo months after being released from the hospital, our client began to experience headaches. He was also experiencing continued pain in his middle to lower back. He sought treatment for what was diagnosed as high blood pressure in several emergency rooms over the next month. Between his emergency room visits, his frequent scans and blood tests, and the consultations he had to do with a cardiologist specialist, our client’s medical bills were through the roof and he did not know how to proceed.

This injured pedestrian had heard of our Oregon personal injury law firm‘s reputation for diligent work on behalf of injured people throughout the state of Oregon. This is the main reason why he contacted the personal injury team at Dwyer Williams Potter Accident Injury Lawyers and hired us to represent him.

Once retained as counsel, we were able to establish a PIP claim with the at fault driver’s insurance company and that got all of our client’s medical bills paid. Our client was fairly compensated for the pain, suffering, and disruption to his life that their irresponsible insured driver has caused.

Fair Settlement for Injured Taxi Cab Passenger

Our client in this Portland Oregon car accident was seated in the back of a taxi when the crash occurred. As our client’s taxi entered an intersection, the defendant ran a red light and collided with the taxi, causing it to careen into a telephone pole. The police were called to the scene, where the defendant admitted that he had driven through the red light and was issued a citation for failing to obey a traffic control device. Our client was immediately transported by ambulance to the emergency room, wearing a C collar.

Portland Oregon Taxi Cab Accident InjuryOur client suffered headaches, facial abrasions and contusions, neck pain, and arm pain as a result of this crash. While in the emergency room, she had to undergo CT scans of her head, face, and cervical spine, and to get her right arm X-ray-ed. She was referred to a physical therapist and saw that PT as well as a massage therapist for treating her neck.

Because our client was a passenger in a taxi, there was no PIP available to pay her medical bills. PIP benefits are only available for vehicle drivers who are involved in accidents. Additionally, she had no health insurance so there was no avenue to have her bills paid while she was receiving treatment.

This injured passenger called the experienced Portland car accident lawyers at Dwyer Williams Potter Accident Injury Attorneys because she knew our reputation for diligently representing our clients. Once she had retained us to represent her, we were able to convince all of her medical providers to hold their bills, explaining that we would satisfy them upon the resolution of her case. 

We successfully negotiated a settlement with the at-fault driver’s policy that not only paid our client’s medical bills but that also compensated her for the pain, suffering, and disruption to her life that she had experienced.

In the end, our client was able to get the treatment that she needed and to make a full recovery from her accident-related injuries. After she had fully recovered, we settled her case for a fair value. We were all thoroughly pleased with this result.
