This client was recently injured in a Portland motorcycle-auto accident. While our client was riding through an intersection, a pickup truck turned in front of him, colliding with him and knocking him to the ground. Due to the extent of his accident-related injuries, our client required hospitalization for seven days following the accident. His most serious injuries included a fractured left elbow and a fractured pelvis that required surgery.
In addition to needing home health assistance directly after the accident, our client’s treatment required many follow-up doctor visits and extensive physical therapy. The main legal problem our client faced was that, because this was a motorcycle accident, there were no personal injury protection benefits available to pay his medical bills or wage loss. His health insurance company initially denied his medical bills because the accident was the fault of a third party.
He called the experienced Portland motorcycle and auto accident injury attorneys at Dwyer Williams Potter LLP so that we could help him get the compensation he deserved after this traumatic accident. We were quickly able to get our client’s health insurer to pay all of his medical bills. We also obtained a policy limit settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company and an under-insured settlement through our client’s insurance company. Altogether, he recuperated a six figure settlement because of our help – smiles all around.
