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.
On Christmas Day, “Barbara” was driving in North Portland when a man pulled out of a restaurant parking lot in front of her. He pulled out so quickly across her lane that she was unable to avoid hitting him, and he was not watching for oncoming cars.
After the accident, Barbara’s car was severely damaged to the point that she was unable to open the driver’s side door and the front bumper was pushed into the front tires.
It wasn’t the car damage that prompted her to seek an attorney, however, but the long-term affects she felt as a result of the accident. As a self-employed woman, her physical and emotional injuries were extremely concerning. The pain in her neck, arm, and shoulder made it difficult to perform basic duties of her job, and the anxiety, memory loss, and confusion after her crash left her wondering what to do. She also hurt her knee in the crash, a common auto accident injury.
After doing some online research, Barbara found this website and was impressed by the resources available. After calling us and receiving her free consultation, Barbara felt confident in hiring Shulman DuBois LLC to represent her in a claim against Progressive.
