Catastrophic Injuries & Insurance Advocate

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.

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.

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.
