CATASTROPHIC ACCIDENTS AND PERSONAL INJURY
HOME’S YARD SATURATED WITH LEAD | MULTNOMAH COUNTY CASE, No.: 16CV29450
This case was filed on behalf of parents of a toddler, whose blood tested with lead more than twice the acceptable level, while they were renting a home in Southeast Portland. The EPA later tested the yard and found dirt that had 280 times the acceptable level of lead in at least one area. The case claims that the former landlord knew this and knowingly exposed the family.

T-BONED BY SHERIFF’S DEPUTY
Our firm represented a woman who was t-boned by a Multnomah County Sheriff’s deputy who ran a red light without lights or sirens blaring. Even though she was able to walk away from the accident, now, several years later, she still experiences pain. Our case, brought to a jury trial, fought to prove her word against a major government organization. A 12-person jury awarded our client compensation for injuries she experienced from the accident.

DRUNK DRIVER HITS WOMAN; MEDICAL EXPENSES COVERED
Our firm represented a woman who was hit by a drunk driver in 2012. Her hand was severely injured in the accident. She settled with the drunk driver’s insurance company for policy limits, but that settlement did not cover all of her medical expenses. Her insurance company at the time, did not feel that all of her treatment was reasonable and necessary, which resulted in her having to file a lawsuit against her own insurance company for her UM/UIM (Uninsured Motorist) coverage. A jury trial verdict awarded our client more than 8 times what the insurance company first offered for her medical treatment and recovery.
DOCTOR’S BILLS & LEGAL FEES COVERED | MULTNOMAH COUNTY CASE, No.:1304-05040, against Progressive Insurance company
The firm represented a client entitled to personal injury protection benefits after being struck by a motor vehicle and sustained personal injuries. After receiving appropriate medical care his expenses were submitted for payment under his personal injury protection coverage, but not all payments were made. Afterward his coverage was cut off even though his physician concluded that the additional treatment was reasonable and necessary. Our team defended our client’s rights by obtaining economic reimbursement for all unpaid medical benefits, and covering all legal fees.
UNDERSTANDING RIGHTS WITH PERSONAL INJURY PROTECTION | MULTNOMAH COUNTY CASE No.:1403-02815, against USAA Insurance Company
Client was involved in a crash that totaled her car by a negligent driver. In Oregon, each driver’s own insurance policy, provides for PIP (Personal Injury Protection) coverage. PIP is required under Oregon law to pay for medical bills. After several months of seeking medical care, USAA hired a questionable chiropractor to do a file review, with no physical exam. Upon the file review, client’s benefits were cut off and medical bills were denied, claiming they were unreasonable and unnecessary. Our client happened to be a medical doctor, and the victim in this case. We filed the case and soon after, all bills, fees and costs were paid.
