Full Physical and Monetary Recoveries for Injured Eugene Truck Driver

Our client in this automobile accident, which occurred last winter, was a Eugene, Oregon pickup truck driver. She was traveling north on a main road in Eugene when the collision occurred. As she entered an intersection, another driver failed to yield the right of way and pulled into our client’s traffic lane in front of her, causing our client to strike that driver’s vehicle at a ninety degree angle in a “T-bone” accident. Our client’s truck was totaled in the accident and she was seriously injured.

Pickup Truck Accident Eugene Oregon | Oregon Car Crash LawyersOur client was seen at Urgent Care following the accident, where she was diagnosed with a low back sprain/strain with possible torn muscles. Due to the severe pain and discomfort that she was experiencing, she was seen at the emergency room the following day. Additional tests were conducted during that visit and our client was advised to receive chiropractic care and massage therapy treatments for the next four months, which she did.

Although our client did not sustain any wage loss in this accident, she incurred significant medical bills that she did not know how to pay. For this reason, and because she was unsure how to proceed with a claim against the at-fault driver, she contacted and retained the well-known Oregon car accident lawyers at Dwyer Williams Dretke Accident Injury Attorneys to represent her.

Our firm’s Eugene-based personal injury attorney and partner, Richard, managed this case. He was able to establish a Personal Injury Protection claim with our client’s insurance company, which got all of her medical bills paid at once. As soon as our client’s treatment was complete, Richard collected all of her medical records and bills and sent a demand package to the adverse insurance company.

Within a short amount of time, Richard and his experienced Eugene, Oregon auto accident law firm staff were able to obtain a fair and reasonable settlement with the at-fault driver’s insurance company that fairly compensated our client for the pain, suffering, and disruption to her life caused by their irresponsible driver. Our client was happy with the fallout from her Eugene auto accident and with her decision to work with Dwyer Williams Dretke PC.
