Portland Bicyclist Hit By Car Receives Huge Settlement After Negotiations

Our client in this Portland bicycle accident injury case was riding her bicycle down a hill approaching a quiet Portland intersection when a car suddenly turned in front of her.  She couldn’t bring her bike to a stop and rode straight into the car.  The force of the impact threw her onto the hood of the car and then to the ground.

Portland Bicycle Accident Injury AttorneysEven though our client was wearing a helmet when she rode into the car, she lost consciousness upon hitting the ground. Following the accident she experienced headaches, back and neck pain, as well as pain in her left shoulder and arm. She underwent months of costly physical therapy to treat her injuries.

Our client did not have insurance at the time of her accident and she called our experienced Portland bicycle accident attorneys because she did not know how to get her medical bills paid.  Knowing that she lived with her parents, we immediately went to work establishing a Personal Injury Protection (PIP) claim for payment of our client’s medical bills under her parents’ insurance policy.

What followed was a tough negotiation process with the driver’s insurer.  For months, the insurer claimed that our client was responsible for the accident.  Eventually, though, the insurer conceded that the driver had failed to yield the right of way to our client and had thereby caused our client’s accident-related injuries.  Our client accepted the insurer’s six-figure final settlement offer and was happy that she had called us for help.
