Medical Malpractice Settlement
Mr. Stavley represented a woman who was badly injured due to a surgical error.
Mr. Stavley represented a Portland man who was hit by a car while on his motorcycle. The man suffered a serious lower leg injury that required a below-knee amputation. This case was complicated because the motorcyclist did not have insurance. Oregon law prohibits victims from getting non-economic (pain and suffering) damages if they are uninsured. Nonetheless, Mr. Stavley resolved the case for the at-fault driver's policy limits - $1.5 Million.
Mr. Stavley represented a man who was injured when he came into contact with a live electrical line at work. The man suffered electrical burns to his hand which led to a finger amputation. Prior to hiring Mr. Stavley no offers were made by the defense.
Mr. Stavley represented the estate of a woman who suffered a lower leg amputation after an emergency room doctor failed to properly diagnose a blood clot. The woman died unrelated to the malpractice and so Mr. Stavley pursued the claim for the estate.
Mr. Stavley represented a young man in Eugene who was a back-seat passenger in a car hit by a driver who ran a red light. The young man required surgery to repair a fractured jaw and a traumatically-caused urethral stricture.
Mr. Stavley represented a construction worker who was injured when a truck in oncoming traffic tried to make a last-second left turn across traffic but instead hit the construction worker causing a significant collision. The construction worker suffered a compression fracture at T-12 and a cervical disc herniation at C-6/7. Neither injury required surgery and both healed in time but with some ongoing symptoms. Mr. Stavley resolved the case against the at-fault driver's insurance carrier for policy limits - $25,000 - and then brought a lawsuit against the construction worker's own insurance company for underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. The case settled shortly before trial for an additional $500,000.
Mr. Stavley represented a couple who were on a motorcycle when they were hit by a teen-aged driver who failed to stop for a stop sign. The husband suffered a wrist injury requiring surgery while the wife suffered soft tissue injuries.
Mr. Stavley represented a Portland woman who was charged by a neighbor’s pit bull causing her to fall over a retaining wall. The woman suffered a slight fracture to her femoral condyle, ruptured her ACL and tore her meniscus. The dog owner’s insurance company, Allstate, initially blamed the woman for her own injuries. A week before trial they offered $185,000 then days before trial increased the offer to $225,000. The jury returned a verdict totaling $404,044.75.
Mr. Stavley represented a Portland cyclist who was hit by a car that turned directly in front of him. The cyclist was thrown into the driver’s windshield and suffered a large open wound to his back that required surgical repair and left him with an unsightly scar. The driver’s insurance company, The Hartford, blamed the cyclist for the crash. After Mr. Stavley became involved, the offers steadily rose from $40,000 to $90,000, and eventually to $150,000 just before trial. Ultimately, the verdict more than doubled the last offer.
