Our client in this case was the passenger in a car being driven by her spouse. The couple was stopped at a stoplight in downtown Portland, waiting for the traffic signal to change, when another motorist rear-ended their vehicle. Our client was injured as a result of the accident and sought immediate medical attention for her accident-related injuries.
After completing one year of treatment, our client was still experiencing pain associated with her accident-related injuries. Two years after the accident, her physician-recommended treatment was still not completed. Unsure of how to handle her claim, she approached the seasoned auto accident injury attorneys at Dwyer Williams Potter LLP and hired us to represent her.
We first filed a lawsuit on behalf of our client to preserve the statute of limitations, then we began conducting extensive discovery with the defendant insurance company’s attorney. After our client has completed her treatment, we were able to settle the case with the at-fault driver’s insurance company for more than three times what they had offered our client prior to her hiring us. Our client was thrilled with the settlement offer, and so were we.
