Radio Cab Passenger Verdict

Stewart v. Radio Cab Company et al., Multnomah County Case No. 15CV25203

Plaintiff Stewart was a passenger in Defendant Radio Cab’s car. The driver lost control of the vehicle, went off the road and hit a tree.  Stewart claimed that Radio cab’s driver was negligent for speeding and failing to maintain a proper lookout.  Stewart claimed crash-related injuries to her hips, shoulder, neck, back, foot, leg, knee, and ribs including a CAM deformity and labral tear to her hip which required surgery. She sought $250,000 for past and future medical expenses, $100,000 for lost income and earning capacity and $600,000 for non-economic damages.

Radio Cab admitted liability and that Stewart’s pre-existing CAM deformity was aggravated.  They also agreed that related past medical costs were reasonable and necessary.  They denied that there was any need for future medical care or that there was any future wage loss or loss of earning capacity.
