GEICO Win on Arbitration Appeal
Abdi v. Van Tran, Multnomah County Case No. 15CV00944
This was a defense appeal from an arbitration award for Plaintiff.
Plaintiff Abdi was driving westbound on Division Street when she slowed to take a right turn onto I-205 and was struck by Defendant Van Tran. Abdi claimed that Van Tran was negligent for following too close. She claimed unspecified injuries to her back, neck, shoulder, and leg. She sought $10,000.00 in non-economic damages and attorney fees under ORS 20.080.
Defendant Van Tran denied that he was negligent and argued that Abdi pulled into his lane without signaling and struck Van Tran’s vehicle.
