Donald Adamski v. Jeanne McKibben 2011
Senior masters athlete, Donald Adamski, was hit in a bike lane by a motorist turning left. He suffered multiple rib fractures, pneumothorax, and a partial finger amputation. No citations were issued to the driver, but we assisted the client in pursuing a Citizen Violation Prosecution, securing a conviction in Washington County and strengthening the liability case. The defendant settled after we filed civil case for policy limit. The driver also submitted a written apology, supplemental cash payment and agreed to community service. The client then went on to testify in person and in writing in the Oregon legislature on several bills we initiated to strengthen Oregon’s Vulnerable User and Crosswalk laws.
