A personal injury claim process follows a well thought out, but sometimes lengthy process. An Oregon personal injury lawyer can help you fight for compensation for any type of personal injury and can help you understand what type of compensation to focus on. We can help you understand what your case is worth in addition to what compensation you should seek.
Accident cases can be quite complex. When we take on your case, our team immediately gets to work gathering the information we need. Our office gathers any available reports and papers concerning your injury, including medical records. We work to track down and speak with any witnesses to your accident as well.
After we gather the information we need, we determine what we feel is a fair settlement and attempt to negotiate a deal with the insurance company. When the insurance company will not pay what we feel is fair, we head to represent you in court.
If it comes to it, the next step in the personal injury claim process is for our office to file a lawsuit on your behalf. We will take depositions and exchange information with the insurance company, which is called discovery. If discovery concludes and no agreement has been met, we head to trial.
Since every case is different, there are many factors to consider. We not only need to consider the seriousness of the injuries, but our ability to show the defendant was at fault for those injuries. The clearer the liability and the more serious the injuries, the higher the monetary amount we may be able to recover. We may be limited to the amount of insurance, but that will depend on each individual case.
If you have suffered serious personal injuries, it is imperative to speak with an aggressive and compassionate Oregon injury lawyer today. We are prepared to fight for you.
