Personal Injury / Wrongful Death


Oregon law allows you to recover money when you have been injured by another person’s negligence. Oregon law also allows the spouse, children, and parents of a person whose death is caused by the negligence of another to recover for their losses. Usually, the recovery is from the negligent person’s insurance company. The negligent party also may also have to pay money out of their own pocket for your injuries or death if that person has too little or no insurance.

Injury or death can be caused by many kinds of negligence, but some of the most common are: automobile accident, truck accident, bicycle accident, medical malpractice, animal attack (such as a dog or cat bite), and slipping and falling.

If you have been injured or if a loved one has lost his life due to the negligence of another person, please call for a free consultation. I have been handling most kinds of negligence and/or death cases since 1985 but, in the off-chance I do not handle cases such as yours, I can refer you to another attorney. I handle these cases on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will be charged a fee only upon the case being resolved, and then the fee is based on a percentage of the amount for which the case was resolved, either by settlement or trial. In the unlikely event there is no recovery, you do not owe me anything. Please contact my office if you would like to schedule a free consultation.
