Personal Injury and More

What kind of cases do personal injury lawyers handle?

When you have been wrongfully injured, we can fight for you. Personal Injury Lawyers handle all kinds of matters, especially those involving insurance companies. Personal Injury Law is one of those rare circumstances where you can obtain a win-win situation. Often when you are injured you are up against experienced legal teams employed by insurance companies who have an interest in paying out as little as possible. Personal Injury attorneys exist to give you a chance to fight back on a more even playing field. Also, hiring a personal injury lawyer can help you focus on what is important, recovering from your injuries. A good personal injury lawyer fights for you and gets you the compensation you are entitled to. Johnson law handles many types of personal injury cases as listed below.

Car Accidents

From serious accidents to minor fender benders, car accidents are perhaps the most common source for personal injury claims. At the very least you should know about concepts like fault-determination, Personal Injury Protection (PIP), and how our personal injury lawyers only get paid if we win.

You can learn more by reading our information on personal injury and car accidents. Every case is unique and can be very complex. We hate to see good people settle for significantly less than what they are entitled to. Contact us for a free personal injury consultation and see how we will fight for you.

Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks are hard to stop. The legal teams that represent them can be the same way. An accident involving a commercial truck could cost them millions of dollars. To protect their interests some companies will immediately send out investigators in the hopes they can find evidence that may mitigate a potential settlement. Our personal injury attorneys can investigate your claim and fight back against the insurance companies. 

You can learn more by reading up on our information on personal injury and truck accidents. There are specific laws that apply to commercial trucks. The injuries involved in truck accidents are often life-altering, but you likely have options. Contact us for a free personal injury consultation and see how we will fight for you.

Pedestrian Accidents

As a pedestrian, you have certain rights and responsibilities. Pedestrian-related personal injury claims involve looking into who was at fault, what insurance is involved, and a host of other items. As pedestrians have little to no protection from vehicles the injuries involved are usually severe.

We have more information regarding pedestrian accidents. There are specific laws that protect pedestrians and also protect drivers from negligent pedestrian behavior. If you have questions about your accident, contact us for a free personal injury consultation.

Wrongful Death

By definition, a wrongful death occurs when the consequence of negligent, reckless, or deliberate conduct is the death of an innocent victim. Time is of the essence when making the decision to bring a wrongful death claim. This is because there is a statutory period in which you can bring a wrongful death claim in Oregon. Don't miss a deadline!

Diminished Value

When a vehicle is damaged in an auto accident the result is a real economic loss to the owner. This is because after a vehicle is in an accident, a potential buyer will most likely not be willing to pay fair-market value for the vehicle.

Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are injuries that are so serious and severe that the person will likely never be the same again. Examples of catastrophic injuries are amputations, burns, traumatic brain injuries, eye injuries, spinal cord injuries, and compound fractures of bones.

Workers' Compensation

Oregon workers’ compensation system is a no-fault system. The compensability of a claim is not dependent upon demonstrating fault and negligence like it is in some other states.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs more often than many people would like to believe. Doctors and nurses occupy a prestigious position in our society, and it is difficult to comprehend that they may make a mistake that leads to loss of life or serious injury.

Bicycle Accidents

What separates these kinds of accidents from car-on-car crashes is the vulnerability of the biker. However, we have seen insurance companies actually try to settle for even less than a comparable auto-accident claim. We won't let them take advantage of you.
