Personal Injury Law
At Welch, Bruun & Green, we have over 30 years’ experience in handling and litigating personal injury cases. A “personal injury” claim is where a person seeks compensation, both for out-of-pocket expenses such as medical bills and wage loss, and for non-pecuniary losses, such as pain, interference with normal use and enjoyment of life, and emotional anguish against the person or business entity responsible for their harm. Personal injury claims most commonly arise out of motor vehicle accidents; but also may include slips- and trips- and fall, other claims against the owner or tenant of a premises, Employer Liability Act claims, construction defect claims, medical negligence claims, and wrongful death claims. If you have been injured because of the carelessness, recklessness, or intentional act or failure to act of another, you may wish to consider pursuing a personal injury claim. And here at Welch, Bruun & Green, we stand ready to answer any questions you may have, and vigorously prosecute your personal injury claim for you.
Personal injury claims which are based in negligence have a two-year statute of limitations in Oregon.
You should never settle your personal injury claim unless you are reasonably sure about the nature and extent of your injuries; and preferably only after a doctor tells you you are “medically stationary”.
Is it important to have an attorney represent you in your personal injury claim?
In almost all cases, and in all cases involving serious injury, the answer is “yes”. If an injured person is not represented, often, insurance companies for the responsible, or liable, party, will try to settle the claim by offering money. In almost all cases, in our experience, offers of settlement on a personal injury claim made to unrepresented persons are far too low. In almost all cases, you will do far better, in terms of money in your pocket at the end of the claim, being represented by an attorney than trying to settle your personal injury claim on your own.
