How Do I Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Case in Lake Oswego?

Proving negligence typically involves establishing four key elements. Witness statements, medical records, accident reports, photographs, and expert testimony can be used to support the following facets of negligence:

  • Duty of Care

    The first step is to demonstrate that the defendant owed you a duty of care. This duty of care varies depending on the circumstances but generally requires individuals to act reasonably and avoid causing harm to others.

  • Breach of Duty

    Once it's established that the defendant owed you a duty of care, you must show that they breached that duty. This means proving that their actions or failure to act fell below the standard of care expected in the given situation.

  • Causation

    You must prove a direct link between the defendant's breach of duty and your injuries. In other words, you need to demonstrate that the defendant's actions or negligence directly caused the harm you suffered.

  • Damages

    Finally, you must provide evidence of the damages you incurred as a result of the defendant's negligence. This includes physical injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other losses you've experienced.

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!!

    Sarah Dunn
  • 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.

    Rachel Stern
  • 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.

    Lisa Harris
  • 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.

    Jack Agger
  • 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.

  • Yes, you can still pursue a claim even if you were partially at fault. Oregon follows a modified comparative negligence system, which means you may still be eligible for compensation as long as you were not 51% or more at fault for the accident. However, your compensation may be reduced based on your percentage of fault.

  • If an insurance company offers you a settlement, it's essential to proceed with caution. Before accepting any settlement offer, it's advisable to consult with an attorney who can review the offer and ensure it adequately compensates you for your injuries and losses.

    Insurance companies may try to settle for less than you deserve, so having legal representation can help protect your rights and maximize your compensation.

  • Several factors can influence the value of your claim, including the severity of your injuries, the extent of your medical expenses, the impact on your ability to work and earn income, the level of pain and suffering you've endured, and any long-term or permanent disabilities resulting from the accident.

    Additionally, factors such as liability, evidence, and insurance coverage limits can also play a role in determining the value of your claim. Consulting with an Oregon personal injury attorney can help you assess these factors and pursue fair compensation for your damages.
