The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that more than two million people are injured or killed each year in car accidents in the United States. If you’ve been hurt, you’re not alone. The legal system is designed to help you get the compensation you need to help you move forward. However, the system can be difficult to navigate on your own. As an experienced personal injury attorney, I can guide you through it.
At my Portland, Oregon, law firm, I represent people who have been injured in all types of auto accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck wrecks
- Motorcycle crashes
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Taxis and other commercial vehicles
Recovery Of Damages After A Motor Vehicle Accident
As an experienced lawyer, I help people who have been injured in accidents recover compensation for injuries caused by negligent or reckless drivers or dangerous road conditions. If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident, these damages can be more extensive than you initially realized. Many people think that a head injury, broken bone or whiplash was only a minor injury. Later, they discover that the harm caused may affect them for the rest of their lives.
The problem is that people often settle their cases without legal help and for too little, too quickly. They agree to minimum settlement offers proposed by other drivers’ insurance companies. Later, when they discover that their injuries are more extensive, they are unable to collect more compensation to support their needs.
At my Portland law firm, I take a good, long look at the damage you experienced. I make sure that you have received the medical treatment you need and that the full extent of the damage has been realized before your claim is settled. When necessary, I work with medical experts, life care planners and financial experts to estimate the harm caused.
My strategy helps me recover damages pertaining to medical bills, lost wages, replacement of vehicles, pain and suffering, and other harm.
