7 year old BP was riding his skateboard in a downtown Portland crosswalk when he was struck by a dump truck. Initially, the insurance company for the garbage truck denied responsibility claiming that BP's parents were at fault because they failed to properly supervise BP on the sidewalk. BP suffered a broken pelvis and urethra disruption.
We obtained the services of a nurse to help the parents with his rehabilitation at home and to provide expert testimony for trial. BP healed without disability. The case settled for $600,000 prior to trial. The settlement proceeds have been placed in an annuity and will be available to BP when he turns 18.
Despite the fact that TK was wearing light clothes and was half way across the crosswalk, he was struck by a truck making a left turn. As a result of the collision, he suffered a meniscus tear of the knee, requiring surgical repair, an arm fracture, scalp lacerations and a concussion. We were hired after TK's first lawyer failed to obtain immediate insurance benefits to cover all of TK medical needs and further failed to engage the trucking company in timely settlement negotiations.
TW was slowing for a red light when, suddenly and without warning, a truck crashed into the rear of another vehicle, causing that vehicle to strike the rear of TW's. TW suffered a shoulder rotator cuff tear requiring surgery.
