Personal Injury Lawyers in Portland

How can I receive fair compensation?

Know how to deal with insurance companies. Many people do not realize that in order to receive the medical treatment needed to recover from injuries suffered in an accident, they will have to interact with their own insurance company. What many people find even more surprising is that their own insurance company always has a financial motivation to pay as little possible for their insured’s medical treatment. The personal injury attorneys at Johnson Law understand that catastrophic or serious injuries can immediately and drastically affect your quality of life. The last thing you need to be concerned with is investigating the facts surrounding your claim and dealing with insurance companies that only want to minimize their liability at your expense.

At Johnson Law, our Portland personal injury lawyers know how to deal with insurance companies. Let us put our years of experience to use in handling your matter.

What steps are important to take?

It is crucial to investigate what caused your injury to occur. In other words, what entity is liable for the accident that you were a victim of? This investigation, which ideally occurs in the days immediately after you were injured, is vital if you are forced to go to trial to receive compensation for medical treatment, wage loss, and pain and impairment. The personal injury attorneys at Johnson Law are experienced litigators, and they will work aggressively to make sure that your rights under the law are protected and that ultimately you obtain the justice you deserve.

What is a good settlement offer?

A good settlement offer is one that fairly compensates you for your injuries. Here are some things you may be owed compensation for:
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Medical Treatment (Past, Present, and Future)
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Lost Wages
  • Lost Earning Potential
  • And More...
A good settlement offer depends on the details of a case. Call or contact us now for a free consultation and get our opinion on your case. When you retain with Johnson Law, our Portland personal injury attorneys will investigate your case and use their years of experience to determine what your maximum potential recovery is. In our experience insurance companies usually are offering pennies on the dollar.

Things You Need To Know

How much does it cost to retain a personal injury attorney? Are there additional costs?

There is no upfront cost to retain a personal injury attorney.

We operate on a contingency fee basis similar to most personal injury lawyers. However, you will be pleased to learn that we charge our fee only AFTER your medical bills have been paid. This is an important distinction.

We do not get paid unless we win. Almost all personal injury attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis, but that does not mean they charge the same fee. If we settle prior to trial or arbitration we take 33.33% of the recovery as our attorney fee. This is after your medical bills have been paid. Many personal injury attorneys take their 33.33% fee before the medical bills have been paid. This can result in the client receiving little or no compensation. If we go to arbitration or trial, our contingency fee is 40% of the recovery, again after the medical bills are paid. In our experience, this results in our clients being fairly compensated with higher financial recovery.

The insurance company has already offered me a settlement. Should I take it?

Not before consulting with an attorney.

Insurance companies have an interest in getting you to settle your claim as quickly and as cheaply as is possible. By settling your claim, you are releasing the insurance company from any future liability stemming from the incident. It takes time for medical professionals to identify all of your injuries. If you settle your claim too quickly and then realize later on that you are suffering from a more serious injury, it is difficult, if not impossible, to hold the insurance company accountable and receive the proper amount of compensation. Also, in our experience, insurance companies generally do not offer fair settlements to people who are not representing by an attorney.
