LaFavor v. Nurre, Multnomah County Case No. 15CV12576

Plaintiff LaFavor was exiting a gas station parking lot when she was rear-ended by Defendant Nurre who was also attempting to exit the parking lot. LaFavor claimed crash-related post-traumatic impingement syndrome to her left shoulder which required both a past surgical repair and an additional future surgical repair.  She sought $45,619.91 for past medical expenses, $33,250.00 for future medical expenses and $250,000 for non-economic damages.

Defendant Nurre admitted liability but claimed the impact was low-speed and therefore could not have caused the injuries LaFavor claimed it did.

Plaintiff’s Counsel – Joe Piucci and Stephen Piucci

Defense Counsel – Matthew Weise

Verdict – $35,000.00

Date – September 28, 2017
