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.

Fair Settlement for Oregon Couple Injured in Out-of-State Accident

Our client in this auto accident injury case was visiting the East Coast with his wife when the collision occurred. As he was driving, another motorist who was speeding in the fast lane suddenly tried to merge into our client’s lane. Unfortunately, he hadn’t left enough room to enter the lane without hitting our client’s car.

Motorcyclist Receives Settlement After Being Knocked Over

A motorcyclist client was injured when his bike fell on top of him in a Portland roadway accident.  He noticed that his bike wasn’t working when he was preparing to leave work: the bike wouldn’t start, so instead of riding it home he had to push it home in the bicycle lane.  Unfortunately, a passing motorist drove too close to our client and hit him.  Our client fell and his motorcycle fell on top of him, crushing his leg. He sought immediate medical treatment for his accident-related injuries following this incident.

Our client decided to hire an attorney to represent him in this matter because his injuries persisted after he had completed the treatment recommended by his physician.  He called Dwyer Williams Potter, knowing our reputation for excellence.  Our experienced motorcycle accident injury attorneys quickly learned that our client’s doctors had recommended further treatment, but that they had failed to properly communicated this to him.  Our client returned to his medical provider to receive this further recommended treatment, which eventually helped him to completely recover from his accident-related injuries.

After several rounds of negotiation with the insurance companies in this matter, our client was offered a fair settlement that covered all of his accident-related injury expenses.  He was happy with his settlement as well as with his decision to retain the Portland motorcycle accident injury attorneys at Dwyer Williams Potter to represent him in this motorcycle accident case.
