Automobile Injury Law

Personal injury protection (PIP) is mandatory coverage under all Oregon auto insurance policies. PIP benefits cover you for the first year following your accident and pay up to $15,000 for your reasonable and necessary medical care. Some policies provide more than $15,000 for PIP, but all Oregon policies must provide at least $15,000.

Physical injuries to your person could arise from being involved in an automobile accident, a motorcycle or bicycle accident, a railroad accident, an airline or other common carrier accident or a construction or workplace accident. Also may arise as a result of an animal bite, dangerous or unsafe product and other injury-causing situations.

Premises Liability & Negligence

​Premises Liability law is the body of law which makes the person who is in possession of land or premises responsible for certain injuries suffered by persons who are present on the premises. Although some premises cases, such as so-called “slip and fall” cases, can seem simple, in some states the law now favors the premises owner. In assessing a premises liability case, it is often helpful to consult with a lawyer.

Motorcycle Accident Law

In Oregon, motorcycles generally do not have personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, which is the coverage that is mandatory for automobile insurance policies in Oregon. What this means, is that if you are ever injured in a motorcycle accident and do not have the extra PIP coverage or health insurance available to you, we will ask your medical providers to wait on payment for medical bills until we are able to settle your case or if need be go to trial to recover money owed to you for any medical bills and also pain and suffering. We are also experienced bicycle accident attorneys.

It is in your best interest to consult an experienced attorney well versed in truck accident injury. The at-fault insurance company will try to persuade you into not pursuing compensation you deserve. Don’t let insurance companies take advantage of you.  Hire a legal professional to represent and be on your side. Hiring a legal professional will mean that they take care of all communication involved with the accident so you don’t have to deal with the stress of talking to people who do not have your best interest in mind.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Wrongful Death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, company or entity. An action for wrongful death belongs to the decedent’s immediate family members (often called “distributees”). The most common distributees are surviving spouses, children, and sometimes parents. Most wrongful death lawsuits follow in the wake of criminal trials, and may only be brought by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate. The average settlement is resolved within one to four years.

Bicycle Accident Attorney

In bicycle and vehicle accidents, there is often a lot of talk about who is at fault. Sometimes it is clear who is at fault, but unfortunately, many times it’s not. Also, it’s common for one person not to be found 100% at fault. Most times fault can be established by investigation into how due care was (or was not) practiced up to and at the time of the accident. Motor vehicle drivers must practice a reasonable amount of due care when operating their vehicle.
