Do I Have a Case If I Was Partially at Fault for My Accident?

Possibly. Oregon's modified comparative negligence law lets you recover compensation as long as you were not more than 50% to blame for the accident. Here, a jury assigns a percentage of fault to everyone involved. If you were 50% or less responsible for the accident, your final compensation is then reduced by your share of the blame.

For instance, if you were awarded $100,000 but found to be 20% at fault, you'd receive $80,000. However, consulting an experienced Eugene personal injury lawyer is crucial. They can fight to minimize the fault assigned to you and maximize the compensation you deserve.

How Do I Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Case in Eugene?

To win a personal injury case based on negligence, you'll need to prove four key elements:

Evidence is crucial to prove these elements. Common evidence includes:

Consulting our Eugene personal injury lawyer is highly recommended. We can guide you through evidence collection, assess the strength of your case, and fight to hold the negligent party accountable for your injuries.

Hear from Our Clients

  • I was referred to Todd after a car accident. I had not sought representation for auto incidents before. I had concerns about my physical health and how my insurance company was handling it. Todd was amazing.  He had me start medical treatment, and he handled everything. I was compensated and referred family members, friends, and everyone to Todd. He's helped me and the people I care about navigate getting the best support after an accident. Todd is the best!!

  • I am so grateful for Todd’s work in navigating the insurance claims after my van was rear ended.  The medical adjusters were calling me regularly while I was in treatment, which I found very overwhelming.  Once Todd took my case, he handled all the communications between my insurance and my medical providers, which relieved me of the weight of that responsibility and gave me the space to fully heal from the accident.  He clearly explained my rights under the laws of personal injury protection, and negotiated a settlement far exceeding what I could have done on my own.  I highly recommend his services to anyone who has experienced and auto accident.

  • Todd helped me navigate the overwhelming steps of an auto accident. I was rear ended at a stop light, my car was totaled and I was taken to the ER. Post accident, it was hard to wrap my mind around anything and what needed to be done. Todd ensured that my health was priority and helped get me the treatment I needed. While I was able to focus on my rehabilitation, he took care of the insurance and dealt with the aftermath of what needed to be done. Though it was a stressful time, being able to rely on Todd to handle the claim and other legal matters was the biggest relief. He is extremely communicative, easy to reach and truly cared about my progress even when we settled. Forever thankful and would highly recommend.

  • I was in a MVA and had no clue what to do with the insurance company or how anything worked. Todd walked me through everything step by step. There were no dumb questions and he gave excellent guidance. My insurance company turned out to be a massive pain in the butt and were horrible to work with. Todd was able to step in once that fact became apparent and was able to swiftly and successfully close my case that had been dragged out for 3 extra months by the insurance company. He and his staff are very knowledgeable and straight shooters. Overall wonderful to work with and his office is my first call if I need him in the future.

  • Todd is great at what he does and an amazing resource to anyone needing legal support for auto accidents. In 2015 I was injured as a result of an auto collision, and Todd was instrumental in ensuring I received medical care. His professionalism and dedication to the case was an immense relief to me, especially as someone who never had an accident before.

FAQs

  • Our services operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning you won't owe any upfront fees. We only get paid if we successfully secure compensation for you. This approach ensures that everyone has access to quality legal representation, regardless of their financial situation.

  • While many personal injury cases are settled out of court through negotiation, some may require litigation if a fair settlement cannot be reached. Our goal is to resolve your case efficiently, but we're prepared to represent you in court if necessary.

  • The duration of a personal injury case varies depending on factors such as the complexity of the case, the severity of injuries, and whether litigation is involved. Some cases can be resolved within a few months, while others may take a year or more. We strive to expedite the process while ensuring you receive fair compensation.

  • If your personal injury claim is denied by the insurance company in Eugene, you should take the following steps:

    1. Review the Denial Letter: Understand the reasons for the denial and any options or deadlines for appeal.
    2. Gather Documentation: Collect all relevant documentation, including medical records, accident reports, witness statements, and correspondence with the insurance company.
    3. Consult with an Attorney: A personal injury attorney in Eugene can provide guidance on appealing the denial or pursuing other avenues for compensation.
    4. File an Appeal: If there are grounds for appeal, follow the instructions outlined in the denial letter to submit an appeal to the insurance company.
    5. Consider Alternative Dispute Resolution: In some cases, mediation or arbitration may be an option to resolve the dispute outside of court.
