Attorney Timothy Grabe Secures $27 Million Award for Client
All of us here at the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe are excited to announce that we recently obtained a $27 million award on behalf of one of our clients. The case involved a car accident caused by a drunk driver that left our client paralyzed as a result of the injuries she sustained.
Our client was a passenger in a vehicle that was struck head-on by another vehicle that was driving on the wrong side of the road. The driver of the other vehicle was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident. The driver of the other vehicle had a BAC of .256% two-and-a-half hours after the accident.
Prior to the accident, the driver of the other vehicle and his supervisor were enjoying a “guys night out” in downtown Portland where they visited four bars in the space of a few hours. Although the supervisor suggested that the driver of the vehicle that hit our client should take a Lyft to get home, he instead got behind the wheel drunk.
The drunk driver collided into the vehicle our client was traveling in with such force that another passenger died at the scene as a result of “crushing injuries.” Our client was rendered paraplegic due to the accident and sustained a severe brain injury and broken bones. Her spine had to be partially repaired with surgical insertion of hardware.
The events of this accident have irrevocably changed the life of our client, and after filing a successful wrongful death claim, we were able to obtain a $27 million award. Our client recovered economic damages for her past medical expenses, her life care plan, and her loss of earning capacity. Our client was also able to recover non-economic damages for her pain and suffering and mental anguish.
