Our clients in this matter were husband and wife who were involved in a “T-Bone” car collision while enjoying an evening drive. An SUV blew through a stop sign and crashed into the side of our clients’ vehicle at such a high speed that the husband died and the wife was severely injured. The SUV driver had a suspended license and was uninsured. Dwyer Williams Dretke filed a lawsuit and quickly obtained a judgment in the amount of $1,112,007 against the SUV driver. This judgment was significantly limited by Oregon’s cap on wrongful death claims. We were also able to settle with our clients’ under-insured motorist carrier for the full policy limits. With our help, our female client secured more than $1,242,000 in lawful compensation for her injuries and loss.
