The defendant in this matter lost control of his vehicle, side-swiped another vehicle, and collided with our client head-on. This collision totaled our client’s car and left her with serious injuries. She was immediately rushed to the local hospital, where her examination revealed a number of severe injuries. These included a cracked and bruised sternum, ligament and tendon damage in her ankle, neck and back injuries, and severe bruising covering the rest of her body. She completed eight months of treatment following the accident before making a complete recovery.
Our client called the experienced Oregon auto accident injury attorneys at Dwyer Williams Dretke PC because her total medical bills exceeded personal injury protection (PIP) limits and because she recognized that the number of people injured in this three-vehicle collision would complicate her claims. She needed professional help and we took her case.
Once hired by our client, we explained her PIP benefits to her. We gave her health insurer all of the information it needed to pay her bills and provided that insurance company’s information to our client’s medical providers with outstanding bills. In the end, we were able to obtain more money for our client than any of the other parties to the crash received. Additionally, we were able to convince our client’s insurance company to waive its statutory right to be reimbursed for what it paid out in PIP benefits.
