“...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

Wrongful death claims in Oregon are civil lawsuits. Liability in a wrongful death case is in terms of money damages and no criminal convictions are made. Some damages that can be recovered in a wrongful death claim include medical and hospital expenses, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages or benefits, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship or guidance. Punitive damages may also be awarded in Oregon if extreme negligence or intentional behavior applies. A wrongful death claim in Oregon usually must be filed within three years of the date of the deceased person’s final injury. However, much shorter deadlines can affect or even eliminate claims.

Wrongful Death Claims in Oregon

Oregon defines a wrongful death as one “caused by a wrongful act or omission of another.” This essentially is a situation that would have been a personal injury claim if the decedent were alive, so essentially the family files it for them since they have passed on. In most cases, the claim is brought forth by the surviving spouse, child, or parent. However, other family members may be allowed to bring forth wrongful death lawsuits including surviving grandparents, stepparents, stepchildren, or others who could recover damages.
