My accident involved substantial damage to my custom road bike, and many abrasions and soft tissue injuries, including face, but nothing life-threatening. I tried to resolve the bike damage directly with the defendant, but he was not only resistant, but rude over a period of several months. He did not respond to a demand letter which Chris sent pro bono, so we decided to pursue damages in court. We were successful in court-ordered artbitration, but the defendant appealed de novo. Thus, the case went to jury trial. Two years after the accident, Chris was successful in court proceedings, and the jury awarded me damages for bike repairs, and a bit for pain and suffering, which I did not ask for specifically. Chris handled the case well, and kept me informed. It helped that had had been a judge pro tem, and is a cyclist himself, very active in the Bicycle Tranportation Alliance in Portland.

While riding my bike to work, I was hit by a delivery truck. I was riding straight through an intersection, the truck turned left in front of me. The driver denied responsibility. Although I had a broken clavicle I didn't need an ambulance, and the police declined to come out to the accident. Over the next couple days I realized I had no idea what to do next. Chris represented me, and we filed a lawsuit. Chris was honest, communicative, caring and very capable. Chris explained bike cases can be difficult and that we should be prepared to go to trial if necessary. In the end through negotiations with the defense attorney for the delivery van's insurance we were able to agree to an excellent settlement. I very much appreciated how easy Chris was to work with and would recommend him to anyone in need of representation for a personal injury situation.

If you want an attorney that is highly competent, detail-oriented and not just in it for the money, please consider Chris. He was not afraid of taking on my case, even though it was not an easy one. He was thorough in doing his research on my wrongful death case and attentive to my concerns and input as we progressed through the case. He was mindful of my suffering and that of my children at all times, and prepared our case not just to win at all costs, but with sensitivity to our situation. Chris Larsen and the firm were forthright, helpful, and real in every interaction. I recommend Chris highly to any and all! He will work harder than you expect, with care and competence!
