Portland Pedestrian Injury Attorney

We Are Experienced

Portland pedestrian injury attorney Chad Stavley

When you are a pedestrian, you are very vulnerable.  When you get hit by a car the injuries that occur can be life-altering. You want to have some guidance from an experienced Portland pedestrian injury attorney. We have handled many different types of pedestrian injury cases and collected millions of dollars in damages for pedestrians.  Usually, these cases involve a pedestrian hit in a crosswalk by a turning car that fails to yield.  Sometimes they are cases where a driver runs a stoplight or sign and hits a pedestrian crossing a road.  We have handled parking lot cases too.

When looking for a Portland pedestrian injury attorney you should get someone with experience handling cases like yours. We recently resolved a Washington County pedestrian case in which a woman was hit in a crosswalk by a driver who was leaving a parking lot and only looked in the direction of vehicle traffic and not for pedestrians in the crosswalk.  The impact broke both of our client’s wrists causing her to undergo surgical repairs.  We resolved the case for $1.19 Million Dollars.

We Know How To Win

Insurance companies are interested only in their bottom line.  How much are they going to have to pay? When determining how much they will offer for a settlement they look at the facts of the case, the injuries and what would likely happen if the case went to trial.  If you have a lawyer without winning trial experience, the insurance company will think their risk is lower and therefore offer less money. On the other hand, if they know your lawyer has experience taking cases to trial and getting good verdicts, they will think their risks are higher and offer more money.

Chad Stavley has tried cases and won verdicts that exceed final offers by more than three times.  If the insurance company makes an offer that does not fully compensate you we will be ready to take your case to trial.

We Don’t Compromise

Every case has to be evaluated for its strengths, weaknesses and ultimately its value.  We look long and hard at our cases. We evaluate the liability facts so that we can prove who was at fault.  We evaluate the medical file and history to make sure we can prove all the injuries that are related to the incident.  Then we do our best to estimate the likely trial outcome.  Once we have made our determination about the value of your case, we will discuss strategy with you and start working to reach the full value of your case.  If the defense never offers the full value of your case, then we will recommend trial.

We aren’t interested in seeing how many cases we can clear each year.  We are interested in seeing how many of our clients are fully compensated and fully satisfied with our representation.

I have to thank Chad for his time and compassion when working with my Mom and l. When I initially called Chad I was full of fear and anger about the wreck and how my civil case was being handled. My former attorney had just notified me, by mail, that he couldn’t do anything for me, and to come pick up the paperwork. Chad listened and talked with Me. Giving him hope and a path forward. This is what I needed at this very low point in my life. Chad met with Mom and I in person, later emailing us detailed instructions. Which we followed. He provided support and was available when we got stuck and had questions. Chad’s help and support have been invaluable to our family. And has help put closure to this catastrophic event in my life. I high recommend Chad.read more

Chad is the real deal, truly out to help the less powerful and not in it just for a paycheck. Heres proof: I called him because my insurance adjuster was BS'ing me around with medical coverage, telling me I wasn't eligible. Chad went out of his way to three way call my insurance company with me, talk to the adjuster, and voila! Now i have medical coverage and I can get my back fixed. The best part? He didn't charge me a dime! He did it out of the kindness of his heart for somebody of lower status. Call it 100% magnanimous. If you're looking for a personal injury attorney, Mr. Stavley is your guy. read more

I was in a major car accident in Eugene, Oregon back in June 2015. Resulting in numerous of injuries. Hospitalized for a couple of weeks and rehabbing for a couple of months after that. I was referred to Chad and he even came out to see me in Eugene from Portland. Our first discussion wasn't about any legal actions but how I was healing from the accident. Chad actually cares about his clients and will make sure you're taken cared off. He makes sure he is prepared for his cases and always is in communication with me. He even calls to see how I am doing or if I needed anything. He made my lawsuit really easy to handle. He will give you the best result one can ask for. Very easy and cool to work with. He will make sure that you are taken cared off. I highly recommend Chad Stavley for any personal injury case. You will be very pleased from the results.read more

After being rear ended by an impaired driver that left the scene, I contacted Chad Stavley because of his reputation for doing the right thing for the right reasons when he was a Deputy District Attorney with Multnomah County. Not only did he make the personal injury and damage portion of the collision simple, Chad also very quickly understood that I hoped for an outcome that was fair and reasonable for the person that hit me. Because of his prior experience and background, he was able to easily navigate the criminal aspect of this case with a resolution that held the driver accountable in a meaningful way, made me feel as if my input truly mattered, and most importantly, identified and acknowledged community stakeholders affected by impaired drivers. I cannot imagine navigating this sometimes very unpleasant process with another attorney. It is Chad's integrity and sincere compassion that guided and positively impacted this process for me and everyone else involved. I will recommend Chad Stavley to everyone I know.read more

Chad took my case after I was in a severe car accident in which an impaired driver with no insurance was at fault. After a year of Chad working on my case, he was able to not only significantly reduce my medical bills, but as a result, was able to get some settlementment money for me. He was always great about staying in contact and I never felt rushed. Chad took the time to explain the case clearly and was even complimented by the D.A. office handling the criminal side of the accident. After everything was settled, he waived his fees, leaving me with a bit more money than I had originally thought.read more

I was in an auto accident right after I turned 18. After a year of battling my case by myself I decided to finally look for legal help. I met with a few other attorneys before meeting Chad. Chad was understanding of my situation. I felt at ease signing over the case to him knowing everything was in good hands. I will be recommending him to all family and friends.read more
