A Sampling of Recent Randall J. Wolfe, PC Verdicts and Awards:

One of Oregon’s Largest Non-Surgical InnerEar Verdicts
Oregon

In this case, many months after a significant auto collision, the Plaintiff first reported severe vertigo and vestibular problems. However, he chose not to undergo risky surgery. After sending him to multiple exams by doctors of their own choosing who all denied his injury, the Insurer offered about $30,000 the night before trial. After a four day Trial, the Jury returned a Verdict for $292,000.

$2.5 Million “Jury Poll” after 2 Week Sex Abuse Trial
Multnomah County, Oregon

“Minor Impact” Case Yields Over 60 Times the Best Insurance Company Offer
Oregon

In this low speed auto collision, the insurance company offered only $1000 in settlement, arguing the collision was too minor to severely injure the Plaintiff. After a three day trial, the Jury returned a Verdict of $68,000.

Uninsured Motorist Award Exceeds Policy Limit
Oregon

Even though the Plaitiff had an $100,000 Uninsured Motorist Policy, her company Allstate Insurance fought her to the end after she was struck by an Uninsured Motorist. After Arbitration, she was awarded in excess of her policy limit and therefore collected the full $100,000 due under her Policy.

Takano v. Farmers Insurance, 184 Or App479 (2002), Now Protects all Oregonians
Oregon

In 2002, Randall J. Wolfe successfully argued this case in the Appellate Courts. Takano holds that when there are multiple injury victims, each is entitled to Underinsured Motorist benefits equal to the difference between the UIM Policy limit and the amount he or she recovered from the bad driver’s Policy. In other words, you don’t compare “limits to limits.” This is a great victory for all Oregonians.

Farmers Insurance Pays Attorney Fees on Top of Verdict
Oregon

In this Multnomah County motor vehicle collision Trial, Farmers Insurance appealed the Award from Mandatory Arbitration. At Trial, the Jury returned a Verdict well in excess of the Arbitration Award, and Farmers Insurance was required to pay some of Plaintiff’s Attorney Fees in addition to the Verdict.
