$28,649 MVA Verdict
Darby v. Losli, Multnomah County Case No. 15CV29621
Plaintiff Darby alleged that she was driving SW Walker Road when traffic ahead of her came to a sudden stop causing her to need to do the same. She claimed that Defendant Losli was driving behind her, failed to stop and crashed into the back of her car. She claimed accident-related injuries including a herniated C5-6 disc, concussion and strains/sprains of her neck and back. She sought $25,000 for past medical expenses, $335,000 in future medical expenses, $2,423 in wage losses and $250,000 in non-economic damages.
Defendant Losli claimed that the crash was Darby’s fault for driving too fast and failing to keep a proper lookout. She argued that Darby hit the car in front of her causing the sudden stop/crash and deprived Losli of sufficient stopping distance.
