We are accessible to our clients, and take great care to communicate with our clients all aspects of their case and their options.
The purpose of the initial consultation is to evaluate your case at no charge. At the initial consultation, our Lawyers will help to:
- Document your injuries;
- Make certain you are getting benefits and compensation you might be entitled to; and
- Make certain your compensation is timely and maximized.
Again, there is no obligation to our prospective clients for the first consultation, and we will pursue your case rigorously upon mutual agreement.
We encourage those who have been discouraged by previous legal or medical experiences to discuss your case with us to determine if compensation for your loss is possible. If so, we will ethically attempt to pursue every legal remedy available to compensate you for your losses – past and future.
We are a highly integrated, team-oriented office. If one of our attorneys needs something critical to your case, any of our other attorneys will help fill the need. We support each other with counsel and encouragement and resources like few other firms in the West. Our team approach benefits our clients, and has made us one of, if not, the largest Plaintiff-Oriented Law Firms in Oregon specializing in representing victims of car accidents.
Questions you Need Answered
Because we want to help you protect your legal rights, we will meet with you to answer your questions and explain any recovery to which you may be entitled.
Your questions may include:
- What damages and expenses am I entitled to?
- Should I sign any papers sent to me by an insurance company?
- Should I consent to recorded statements by the Insurance Company?
- Is the offer to settle for personal, property, or medical expenses enough?
- When should I retain a lawyer or seek legal advice?
- Can I obtain treatment from doctors of my own choice, and will my bills be paid?
- If I signed an “informed consent” for surgery, can I still recover for medical negligence?
- Am I entitled to continued wages and treatment of my choice if I’m injured on the job?
It is critical that you learn the answers to these and other questions as soon as possible following an injury. To protect yourself, you should know your rights before you communicate with other parties in the case.
