Real Client: Her Car Tipped Over and She had to Be Cut Out

This is a real story about one of our real clients. All names of individuals have been changed to protect the innocent and the guilty alike. But names of insurance companies are real, and the details of what happened have not been changed.

“Rachel” was driving through a large intersection in Beaverton, OR (Washington County) on a green light. As she was proceeding, another car ran the red light and hit Rachel’s driver-side door.

Rachel’s car tipped over onto the passenger side, and she actually had to be CUT out of her vehicle. The car was a complete loss. She was then taken to the ER at Providence St. Vincent’s.

At the ER, Rachel was given Xrays and ultrasounds. Later, her doctor did more tests to verify that an earlier back surgery was not affected by the accident. She was diagnosed with cervical strain, lumbar strain, and other injuries for which she received weekly treatments with a physical therapist.

After the accident, Rachel contacted the bad driver’s insurance company to get compensation for her medical bills and met with resistance. She was appalled – their driver had broken the law and they were still reluctant to pay for basic medical treatments related to the accident. She decided to contact an attorney.

Rachel called Shulman DuBois LLC and spoke with an assistant about her case. After reviewing the initial notes, personal injury lawyer Joshua Shulman knew that we could help Rachel with her case and invited her to come for a free consultation. Rachel hired our firm that day to represent her and get her a fair settlement from the other driver’s insurance company.
