Pursuing a personal injury case involves inherent challenges, which is why it is vital to have an experienced injury lawyer and legal team at your side. Our injury attorneys have acquired legal skills that lay people simply do not have. We have access to investigators, forensic specialists, and expert witnesses that help us identify negligent parties responsible for causing injury. We can reconstruct an accident to determine the underlying cause or examine a product to discover whether it was defective. Some cases involve multiple causes and sources of compensation.
The idea of bringing a case against a negligent party is to spare you from the financial hardship that typically accompanies a serious injury. Arriving at appropriate compensation figures requires a certain level of expertise. An Oregon personal injury attorney devotes time consulting with professional experts, whether medical practitioners or economists, and carefully estimates your expenses for present and future medical care, lost wages and future earning capacity, along with lifestyle modifications for permanent disability.
Our legal team has extensive experience in negotiating settlements with insurance companies. Our Oregon personal injury attorneys have years of direct contact with insurance companies and are aware of the ins and outs of the insurance business in Oregon. We will prepare a timely and thorough settlement proposal to the insurance carrier to allow it to make a prompt, full and fair offer to settle our client's claim. This firm's experience in negotiating relieves you of the stress and hassles involved in dealing with the insurance carrier. This also levels the playing field giving you an experienced and trustworthy advocate in the negotiating process. If the insurance carrier fails to make a full and fair settlement offer, we have the skills, experience, and desire to take the case to a jury trial.
Our firm prepares each and every case as though the case will be heard by a jury. This practice along with our long experience in the personal injury field in Oregon allow us to obtain justice for our clients in all types of personal injury claims: wrongful death; product liability defect cases; automobile crash injury cases; bicycle accidents; pedestrian accidents; and trucking injury cases.
