Knee Surgery after a Portland Car Accident

I was hit by a hit-and-run driver, which tore the meniscus in my right knee, and had to have surgery… They caught the driver, and I got her insurance information, even though she said she didn’t have insurance… I actually didn’t deal with the insurance company that much. All I really had to worry about was physical therapy…

[The settlement] was more that I thought I was going to get. One thing I was really happy about and wasn’t expecting was the fact that I didn’t have to take the medical bills out of my settlement…

Sean [DuBois] was great.. he was nice. Anytime I felt I needed or wanted to talk to him, he was available or he’d call me back. All the assistants were really helpful, really nice… everything was great. I didn’t have one problem.. not one issue. I would definitely [recommend]. – C.B.


If you needed surgery after a Portland car accident, you have several options for paying your medical bills. First, you should use your personal injury protection until it is exhausted ($15,000 or one year, whichever comes first). Then, you can use your health insurance but be aware that health insurers make place a lien on any settlement you receive later. Then, once you are done treating (but still keeping in mind the time limits for claims), you can send a demand to the at-fault driver’s insurance company to pay your bills, reimburse any PIP and Health insurance costs, and provide compensation for your pain and suffering. Surgery after a Portland car accident can be expensive, and you may need help paying bills and costs – if this is true, contact our Portland car accident lawyers for a FREE consultation.
