“...prompt, transparent, and professional...”

Bryan Dawson was a great help to me in settling a personal injury case. He was prompt, transparent, and professional. I really appreciated his honesty in what to expect and what the risks were with any decision I made. By following his expertise, I was able to settle my claim for almost double what I had expected and over 5x the amount I was previously offered. I would absolutely recommend Dawson Law Firm to family and friends. I am so relieved to finally have my case settled with such a positive outcome. Thanks!

“...highly recommend Dawson Law Group...”

Bryan Dawson and his team are great to work with. Bryan is very knowledgeable and helped me on a really complicated claim involving 2 different accidents. I would have never been able to accomplish anywhere close to what they did, while dealing with frustrating insurance companies and their attorneys. I would highly recommend Dawson Law Group to anybody needing some helpful representation for any claims involving auto accidents and/or injuries.

How a Wrongful Death Attorney

Can Help Recover Damages

In Oregon, wrongful death cases are handled as civil lawsuits, focusing on financial compensation rather than criminal charges. Families can seek damages to cover various costs like medical bills, funeral expenses, lost income, emotional suffering, and the loss of companionship. If the responsible party acted particularly recklessly or intentionally, punitive damages might also be awarded. It’s important to file a wrongful death claim within three years of the person’s fatal injury, but shorter deadlines might apply, potentially affecting or nullifying the claim.

Wrongful Death Claims in Oregon

Oregon defines a wrongful death as one “caused by a wrongful act or omission of another.” Essentially, it’s a situation that would have been a personal injury claim if the person were alive, but now their family brings the claim on their behalf. Typically, the surviving spouse, child, or parent files the claim. However, other family members like grandparents, stepparents, stepchildren, or others who could suffer losses may also be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
