Oregon Personal Injury Lawyers

 

 

If you are injured because of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages, including auto repair, car rental, personal property damage, diminished value claims, medical expenses, lost wages, physical impairment and your pain and suffering.

 

Consult an attorney immediately after suffering an accident. Within minutes an Oregon personal injury lawyer can advise you about the steps you need to take to preserve your right to make an Oregon personal injury claim and help you take steps to protect your rights.

 

If death or serious injury results, contact an experienced Oregon personal injury lawyer immediately.

 

An experienced personal injury lawyer will be able to help you preserve your claim while you focus on getting better. Working hard to return to health gives you credibility.

 

Oregon law requires that every automobile policy (personal injury protection - PIP) pay up to $15,000.00 (for a period of up to one year) for medical costs, including, but not limited to, chiropractic, physical therapy and massage, providing the treatment is reasonable, necessary and a result of the accident. You are covered by your auto insurance PIP even when you are walking or riding a bicycle.

 

If you are injured by an uninsured driver, you also have certain protection and benefits under your own auto insurance policy.

 

Your rights to compensation will disappear if your claim is not brought within strict time limits.

 

Consult an attorney as soon as you are able to do so.

 

 

What should you look for when hiring an Oregon personal injury lawyer?

 

Verdicts.

 

Insurance companies do not give money away. They only pay you when they have to.

 

If you hire a personal injury lawyer who has not tried a lot of cases and had a number of six figure verdicts, the insurance company will have little reason to pay you a fair amount.

 

Any lawyer can buy membership in legal organizations and buy legal credentials. You can’t buy verdicts, you can only earn them.

 

If you don’t hire an Oregon personal injury lawyer who has significant jury trial experience, you significantly reduce your chances of getting paid a fair amount.
