How a Car Accident Attorney

Can Help Recover Damages

A Portland car accident attorney can be an important resource during a lawsuit. Not only can we guide you through the legal process that we are well-versed in, but also can help you to understand what you’re owed in terms of damages. A car accident lawyer from The Dawson Law Group helps injured car accident victims recover damages, such as lost wages due to missed work, permanent loss of income, past/future medical bills or treatment costs, and pain and suffering. Our legal team understands the statute of limitations associated with personal injury in the state of Oregon. Injured victims in the state usually have just two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit, and our Oregon personal injury lawyer will assist in your case.

Car accident statute of limitations in Oregon

If you met with a car accident in Oregon and face injuries or your vehicle suffers damages, you must consider your options for getting compensation. A “statute of limitations” is a set of norms determined by a state, and it refers to the strict time limit for bringing a lawsuit to the court. According to the state of Oregon, an injured person must file a claim within two years from the date of the crash. You might have a slightly more extended deadline if someone died in the accident. In such cases, you must file a wrongful death lawsuit within three years from the date of the underlying injury.

In case of just vehicle damage, you have up to six years to file a claim. Even if you have enough reasons to believe that the car insurance claim process will resolve your case, you should still leave yourself plenty of time to file a lawsuit to have more leverage during settlement talks. Speak to our experienced Portland car accident attorney for help with filing a claim within the deadline.

Comparative negligence in Oregon car accident cases

If you suffer severe injuries in a car accident in the state of Oregon, you can take your case to court. If, after hearing all the evidence, the jury decides that the accident occurred as a result of both your party’s negligence, you can still recover damages in your car-accident-related lawsuit. However, the award you receive will diminish following your share of negligence.

It is important to note that you may not receive an award at all if your level of fault exceeds that of the other driver. This law is called the comparative negligence rule, and the judge, jury members, and the car insurance claims adjuster will follow it when evaluating your case. Remember that there are no empirical means of allocating fault. So, it all boils down to your lawyer’s negotiation skills when it comes to assigning liability and persuading a claims adjuster, judge, or jury.

Causes of Auto Accidents

The cause of a car accident may have some impact on the type of car accident that happens and the severity of the accident. Some of the most common car accident types include head-on collisions, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, fender benders, sideswiped, t-bone crashes, and rollovers. Whatever the cause of your accident in Portland, our legal team at Dawson Law Group can help you to get the compensation you deserve for your losses and injuries.
