Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is considered a personal injury?
A: Personal injury is a type of civil wrong that happens to people when they get hurt. When someone’s body, mind, emotion, or property is damaged, they may have a personal injury claim. A personal injury can be caused deliberately or carelessly. Most of the time, personal injury victims get hurt when somebody else’s negligence causes them harm.
Q: What is negligence?
A: Negligence is commonly defined as carelessness but it also has a legal meaning. The law defines negligence as a failure to do (or not to do) something that a reasonable person would have done (or would not have done).
Q: Does my injury qualify as a personal injury?
A: If your body, mind, or emotions have been damaged due to negligence, you may have a personal injury case. Portland personal injury cases can range from spinal strains to severe brain injuries. Family members of people who have lost their life dues to another person’s or company’s carelessness may also have a case. The best way to know if you have a case is to contact a Portland personal injury lawyer.

A: Yes. Though there are many exceptions, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Oregon is 2 years and 3 years in the event of death. If you’ve suffered an injury and wish to file a claim, contact us as soon as possible to pursue full and fair compensation.
