Client Injured in Car Accident Settles for Ten Times Initial Offer

Our client in this case was driving along the highway when another motorist attempted to cross the highway in his truck and collided with her. The impact of this collision was so forceful that our client’s new car was totaled. Our client did not believe her injuries to be serious, so directly following the accident she attempted to proceed with her normal activities as though she was not hurt. Because of this decision, when it came time for her to settle with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, that insurer made a low-ball offer, claiming that her physical injuries were minor and didn’t deserve compensation.

Our client called Dwyer Williams Potter to represent her in this Portland automobile accident case, knowing our firm’s reputation for success and tough negotiating in the Portland area. We pulled together and reviewed her pre-accident and post-accident medical records in order to confirm that her injuries were a direct result of the impact of this car accident, then we approached the insurance company to negotiate.

Faced with this medical evidence in favor of our client’s version of events, the insurer increased its offered to our client, but the sum on offer still wasn’t enough to make her whole. After consulting with our client and reviewing options, we decided to file a lawsuit on our client’s behalf. Not long into the discovery process, the insurer offered our client ten times its initial offer and we accepted. Needless to say, our client was thrilled with her final settlement and with her decision to call our experienced and dedicated Portland auto accident injury law firm.
