Six Figure Settlement for Injured Portland Motorcyclist

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.

Portland Auto and Motorcycle Accident Injury LawyerIn 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.

Pain and Suffering Settlement for Store Slip and Fall Accident Victim

Our client was shopping at a big box retailer with her daughter at the time of this accident. As she walked down an aisle she slipped and fell onto the floor. Once she had collected herself, she noticed that the floor she was standing on was covered in standing water. A wet floor warning sign had been set up at the end of the aisle, approximately 40 feet from where she fell. Apparently, the store had been aware of the spill and had done some clean up but not enough to keep its customers safe.

Our client felt that she was entitled to pain and suffering compensation as well and she hired our experienced Portland slip and fall injury law firm to help her increase the settlement being offered to her.

After evaluating our client’s claim, we discussed it with her and sent a demand package to the retail store.  Several rounds of negotiation later, the case settled for a fair amount including all of our client’s accident-related medical expenses as well as compensation for her pain and suffering.  We were able to get our client three times the pain and suffering amount that she had been offered prior to hiring the seasoned Oregon premises liability attorneys at Dwyer Williams Potter LLP.
