Our previous work with 11 specific personal injury cases helps us deliver the strongest representation for you.

EXPERIENCE IN A VARIETY OF AREAS

Our Practice Areas

car accident icon

Automobile Accidents

Driving a car is second nature to most Oregonians, but one accident can change that forever. A serious car accident can leave you with significant physical and psychological trauma. That kind of lasting pain deserves compensation, whether it’s a muscle strain or PTSD to life-altering injuries like spinal surgery or even death. Our attorneys are here to help you secure the financial compensation that recognizes your painful experience and removes the financial burden you shouldn’t have to carry.

Pedestrian Accidents

When you are injured while walking on a street, parking lot, or sidewalk, you are highly vulnerable to catastrophic accidents. Without the protection of a vehicle, serious injuries like traumatic brain injuries or even death are common. Our attorneys make sure the reckless driver or other responsible party doesn’t get to slip away without facing the consequences. We don’t back down until we reach a full and fair settlement for the pain you’ve experienced.

Motorcycle Accidents

In our experience, motorcyclists often are some of the safest drivers on the road — it’s the environment around them that leads to dangerous accidents. Sadly, some of the most injured clients we have represented are those involved in motorcycle accidents. Even if you have the experience and street smarts to manage traffic, other drivers’ negligence can’t always be avoided. We don’t back down from insurance companies and other parties unwilling to give you the financial compensation you deserve after a devastating motorcycle accident upends your life.

Trucking Accidents

Special rules for truck drivers are in place to make the roads safer for you and them. Weight restrictions, time limits, and lower speeds are critical regulations to keep traffic flowing smoothly and safely. Sometimes, however, those rules are broken. Some drivers and companies try to bend the rules to save money. When your accident was caused by a trucker or their company knowingly cutting corners and putting lives at risk, we make them face the consequences of their actions.

Wrongful Death

When you lose a loved one because of the negligence of another person or entity, you’ve experienced a wrongful, unnecessary death. It can happen as a result of many things — from a car accident to using a defective product. While nothing can replace a life, we resolutely demand the responsible party offers compensation that lifts any subsequent financial burden from your family. Our attorneys have represented many Oregon families who have lost a loved one; we’ll help you navigate the legal process as smoothly as possible during this time of immense grief.

Premises Liability

Premises liability cases frequently are referred to as “slip-and-fall” or “trip-and-fall” cases. While premises liability cases certainly include these facts, they also can include other dangerous conditions found on someone’s property. Unsafe sidewalks, darkened rooms, misplaced pallets or equipment, or even unmaintained devices can lead to a premises liability. While many lawyers shy away from these cases, we have a proven method for obtaining outstanding results.

Nursing Home Neglect

Many of us rely on nursing homes to keep parents and grandparents in a comfortable living environment when they can no longer safely live independently. Sadly, some companies and employees cut corners or even purposely hurt residents. We have seen elderly residents abused physically and sexually, neglected in their care, and even blamed for injuries caused by negligence or abuse. Federal and state regulations are in place to help ensure residents’ protection, but sometimes these systems fail. We seek justice when others have failed — for the elderly and their families.

sexual abuse icon

Sex Abuse

In Oregon, victims of sexual assault are able to pursue justice through a criminal case as well as a civil case. Civil claims involving sexual violence are about far more than monetary compensation; they are sometimes the only way for victims to hold the perpetrator accountable, achieve some measure of closure, and help prevent similar things from happening to someone else. Our attorneys will validate your experience and be your advocate for justice with expert legal assistance and representation in sex abuse lawsuits.

Mesothelioma & Asbestos Cases

A mesothelioma diagnosis can be devastating. Exposure to asbestos can cause a variety of cancers, but mesothelioma is arguably the most insidious. Mesothelioma is especially troublesome because even low levels of exposure can trigger the disease even decades before a diagnosis is made. Our Oregon asbestos and mesothelioma lawyers have handled numerous cases where this toxic substance has forever altered someone’s life. We work tirelessly to secure a settlement that covers not only past but future medical costs for you.

brain icon

Traumatic Brain Injury

TBIs include everything from a concussion to life-altering brain damage. Traumatic brain injury lawyers understand the lifelong complications you face after suffering a TBI. We know that these injuries are never simple, which is why you need to account for all of your future needs when seeking compensation. Our lawyers work with your medical team to determine the full scope of your injuries and how they will affect your life. This enables us to seek maximum compensation for our clients.

defective product icon

Defective Products

As consumers, we expect the products we buy to be safe and effective. But when corporations cut corners or lack due diligence, defects can result, causing serious and devastating effects. Defects may include anything involved from the manufacturing process to the product’s design or its purpose and span industries of every kind. We have represented injured clients in defective product cases involving defective hip joints, problematic ATVs, faulty construction equipment, illegal chemicals, bad recreational equipment, and more.
