Chad Stavley reached a settlement totaling $477,500 for a Portland couple involved in a rear-end car crash. They were stopped at a red light when they were struck from behind by a driver with minimal policy limits ($25,000 / $50,000). The driver estimated her speed at 25 MPH. The husband and wife both suffered disc injuries that required surgical repair. However, the pictures of their car did not appear to show any damage. As a result, the insurance company for the at-fault driver did not think the injuries were related. The husband and wife hired Chad because they were getting nowhere with the insurance company. Chad filed a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Shortly before trial, the defense finally offered their policy limits. Chad then brought a claim for underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. Before trial on that case, the insurance company agreed to settle. They paid $227,500 for her and the $250,000 policy limits for him.
The lesson from this case is that while damage photos are important in determining the force of a crash, they aren’t everything.
I was in an auto accident right after I turned 18. After a year of battling my case by myself I decided to finally look for legal help. I met with a few other attorneys before meeting Chad. Chad was understanding of my situation. I felt at ease signing over the case to him knowing everything was in good hands. I will be recommending him to all family and friends.

Chad always kept us informed with every step with a personal phone call. He was a pleasure to work with and was able to get us more than we expected. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney for an accident. He said our case was "in his wheelhouse "! And he proved it! Thank you, Chad!

My name is Martin Lund and I chose Chad Stavley as my attorney after review testimony’s online related to what I had experienced. I was hit on a motorcycle while stopped in a parking lot. Long story short, I suffer from a herniating disc that causes aching and numbing down my left arm. After meeting with Chad, he assisted me in getting my medical treatments moving forwards and worked with doctors clinics to allow me examinations since my PIP insurance had maxed out. Once the case has closed, Chad was able to settle out of court and with a larger than expected settlement. As other reviewers have stated, Chad is very professional and efficient. He did a great job in representing my case and explained what to expect as the case moved forward. If you are needing legal representation for a motor vehicle injury, I highly recommend Chad Stavley.
