If you were in a vehicle accident, whether involving a car, semi truck, or motorcycle, you need the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer. A knowledgeable Portland injury attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve for lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering.
No matter how careful or defensive you are, you cannot control how others drive. When you get hit because someone else made a mistake, the driver of the car that hit you and their insurance company frequently will blame you. If you have been injured in a bike accident, it is important to have a skilled injury lawyer evaluate your claims. Rob Kline is available to discuss your injuries and legal rights.
When a pedestrian is injured by a motor vehicle, one of the key legal issues is whether the pedestrian had the right of way. If you have been injured, it is important to have a knowledgeable accident injury attorney evaluate your claims.
A wrongful death claim arises when a death is caused by the wrongful act or omission of another person or entity. If you have lost a loved one and are considering a wrongful death claim, it is important to act quickly. Critical evidence can be lost if not preserved right away. Additionally, it is important to establish a unified strategy at the outset so that grieving family members can work together to maximize the recovery for the estate, and ease the financial burden a death in the family can cause. Insurance companies are skilled at exploiting intra-family conflicts to decrease the recovery for all potential beneficiaries.
A traumatic brain injury is a complex injury encompassing a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. The effects of a brain injury may be severe and apparent immediately. They also may be debilitating, but not apparent to the casual observer. So-called “mild” traumatic brain injuries can present a particular challenge when there is no visible injury and no objective information, such as an MRI, to support the diagnosis. When someone’s negligence causes a brain injury, it is important to consult with an experienced Portland injury attorney to discuss strategies for maximizing your recovery.
