Pedestrian Injury Case Results in UIM Claim and No Medical Insurance Reimbursement

We represented an Oregon City woman who was struck when jogging in her neighborhood. She was at the corner of an intersection when a driver approached and appeared to look her direction. She then entered the crosswalk and was jogging across when the driver pulled forward and then accelerated into her. She suffered a knee injury. We settled her claim for the policy limits of the driver’s insurance, and also pursued a claim for her underinsured motorist (UIM) benefits with her own insurer, settling for the limits of her UIM coverage. As part of the negotiated settlement, she was not required to reimburse her insurer for the medical payments it had made.
