Lindahl v. Glathar, Multnomah County Case No. 15CV09588
Plaintiff Lindahl was bicycling in the westbound bicycle lane on NE Broadway. She alleged that Defendant Glathar turned right immediately in front of her causing a collision. She claimed Glathar was negligent for failing to yield the right of way. Lindahl claimed injuries including a mild traumatic brain injury, and neck/back strains and sprains. She sought $27,272.00 in past medical expenses, $20,000.00 in past wage losses and $235,000.00 in non-economic damages.
Defendant Glathar denied liability and instead argued that the crash and resulting injuries were a result of Lindahl’s own negligence. He also contested the nature and degree of her injuries.
