If you have suffered injury as the result of someone’s negligence, you may seek compensation for damages from those responsible. Some kinds of injury are often accompanied by long-term or permanent disability. You or a family member may be unable to maintain employment as a result, creating an incredible financial strain. Hiring the attorneys at Goodfellow & Cottle is the first step in protecting your rights and options.

It is important to understand you may have several options. For instance in a serious automobile accident, your own policy may help to provide benefits. Oregon requires insurers to offer personal injury protection on automobile policies, which covers the policyholder’s medical bills arising from an accident and underinsured coverage that helps protect you if the person who injures you in a car wreck does not have enough coverage.  

Oregon is a fault-based car accident insurance state and provides recourse to accident victims to seek compensation for damages they suffer as the result of an accident that another person or party caused. This also applies if the injury is the result of non-traffic-related accidents like construction accidents and defective products. Discuss your eligibility to file a lawsuit with one of our expert attorneys.

Seeking Maximum Compensation for Personal Injuries and Wrongful Death

As experienced personal injury attorneys we know how quickly injury-related expenses can add up. Victims face overwhelming medical bills, rehabilitative expenses, lost wages and more.

We want to help our clients overcome the difficulties they are facing. We seek maximum compensation on their behalf to help them make a full financial recovery following an accident. We analyze all aspects of each case to assess how we can best meet this goal. 

What types of damages might the negligence of others cause? 

Each case is unique, but there are a number of possible damages that victims might suffer. It is important to be compensated fully for all the damages you or your loved one suffer to be sure you receive the care and service you need. Given the severe nature of accident injuries, the judgment or settlement sums are often large and may cover: 

  • Medical bills (past and future)
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced capacity to earn a wage
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Emotional distress
  • More
