Medford Head-on Collision Attorney Firm
Basic physics: Velocity of Vehicle #1 + Velocity of Vehicle #2 = Total Velocity. Imagine running into a wall at 130 miles per hour, and that’s what a head-on looks like between two highway-speed vehicles.
One of our dozens of head-on collision cases involved those kinds of catastrophic G-forces: two people died, one lost his leg, and our two clients had internal bleeding and nearly died. Sadly, there was only so much insurance for everyone, and the bad driver had no assets to contribute. The other attorneys were pushing everyone toward a nasty and prolonged jury trial.
Our firm got involved and re-directed the cases to a retired judge to decide how to divide up the limited proceeds. We also got the medical bills and liens drastically reduced, and our two teenage clients were able to walk away with good settlements. The way things were headed, with everyone butting heads and thrashing towards court, only the lawyers would have won. That’s not how we work.
We were very happy to shake the hands of our teen-clients’ parents at the end of the ordeal; they knew we’d worked hard to protect their daughters from a zero-sum game. And as an aside, these two young women – both with horrific internal abdominal injuries — are now mothers.
In these types of head-on collision cases, the medical bills often are more than all combined insurances. We fight with the lien claimants to reduce liens. We recently got a $405,479 medical lien down to $33,333.* In another, we only had $25,000 in total available insurance limits, and the medical bills totaled $82,967. We got all liens reduced to $4,691.* We are experts in dealing with lien claimants and have gotten liens and medical bills dramatically reduced in many cases.
We work closely with all health care insurances, Medicare, Medicaid, and OHP, so that when you leave our office, the check in your hand is a “net check” with no lurking liens or bills left out there unpaid. From start to finish, we help you get to the best possible result. Insurance companies have in-house lawyers, working full-time against injury victims like you; you need someone on your side who knows how they work.
We can settle most head-on collision injury cases for fair and just payment without going to trial. But either way, with or without a trial, you have just the one chance to get justice, and insurance companies know it. They will pull out all the stops. We know their weaknesses from an insider’s vantage point. • Click About Us.
In one of our trials, the insurance lawyer hired seven medical experts and surgeons! But they didn’t fool the jury; one by one we forced these hired-gun experts to admit they didn’t have the facts. For example, one expert admitted he hadn’t read even one page of 20 deposition transcripts before trial; he ignored 1,500 pages of sworn testimony! Yet he still gave the jury his $6,500 “expert opinion” anyway! That’s not justice, but that’s how they work.
We work to get you the best possible settlement without going to trial; an estimated 95% of our cases settle without going to the courthouse. And if your case is one of the few that does have to go to trial, then we have the skills and experience to win. One of our recent trial verdicts was $550,000 against a premier Portland defense law firm.*
