Accidents happen every day, leaving victims with physical injuries, emotional distress, and financial burdens. But no one should face these challenges alone.

We understand the complexities of personal injury law and have a proven track record of success in holding negligent parties accountable.

Seeking Justice for a Wide Range of Cases in Salem, OR

Our team of Salem personal injury lawyers possesses extensive experience in a wide variety of personal injury cases. We understand that each case is unique, and we are committed to providing personalized legal representation tailored to your specific circumstances.

Here are several kinds of cases we regularly work with:

Car Accidents

Whether you’ve been involved in a rear-end collision, head-on crash, or any other intersection accident, your lawyer will fight to hold the negligent driver accountable and secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries, medical expenses, and other damages.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driving accidents often result in consequences that are even more devastating than the average car accident. Therefore, our attorneys will aggressively pursue justice against drunk drivers and work to secure the maximum compensation for your injuries.

Truck Accidents

Accidents involving commercial trucks can be more complex than car accidents due to the multiple parties involved, as well as the federal regulations that oversee truck drivers and their businesses. Be that as it may, you can rest easy knowing our team will be able to navigate the complexities of your case and fight for you.

Bicycle Accidents

Cyclists often face life-altering injuries in collisions with motor vehicles, seeing as how bikes offer little in the way of protection compared to traditional cars. Nevertheless, we are just as dedicated to protecting the rights of cyclists as we are motorists, and we will fight to hold any negligent driver accountable for the harm they cause.

Motorcycle Accidents

Like their pedaling counterparts, motorcyclists are at a higher risk of serious injury in accidents, given the sheer speed and lack of rider protection that these vehicles provide. That’s all the more reason why we are committed to protecting the rights and well-being of riders who are injured while on the road.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to serious injuries in accidents involving motor vehicles. Thankfully, our lawyers will advocate for your rights and seek justice no matter how you’ve been injured as a pedestrian.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Property owners have a responsibility to maintain safe premises for visitors. As such, if you’ve been injured due to a slip, trip, or fall caused by a hazardous condition that was not properly handled or made clear to you, we can help you pursue a claim against the negligent property owner.

Dog Bites

In a similar vein, dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. Therefore, if you’ve suffered a dog bite injury, we can help you pursue compensation for the medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages you experience.

Wrongful Death Claims

Losing a loved one as a result of someone else’s negligence is a tragic and life-changing experience. At Newlin Law Offices, we help surviving families pursue wrongful death claims to seek justice and financial compensation for the sudden loss of their companions or family members.

Common Personal Injuries We See

We encounter a wide range of injuries resulting from the accidents and incidents listed above. Some of the most common types of personal injuries we see include the following:

  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Sprains, strains, whiplash, and contusions; often the results of car accidents, slip and falls, or sports injuries.
  • Broken Bones and Fractures: Minor cracks to complex breaks requiring surgery and extensive rehabilitation.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries: Often cause long-term cognitive, physical, and emotional consequences and require specialized medical care.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Can result in partial or complete paralysis, requiring ongoing medical treatment and significant lifestyle adjustments.
  • Burn Injuries: Can cause severe pain, scarring, and disfigurement, necessitating extensive medical procedures and rehabilitation.
  • Internal Injuries: Include internal bleeding or organ damage; can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention.
  • Psychological Injuries: Mental health concerns such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression.

If you’ve suffered any form of these personal injuries due to someone else’s negligence, it’s essential to seek legal representation. A Salem personal injury attorney from our team can help you understand your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve for what you’ve been through.

Our Proven Process for Personal Injury Claims

Navigating personal injury claims can be overwhelming, especially as you handle both the physical and emotional aspects of your recovery. The good news is that our Salem personal injury lawyers are here to guide you through every step of the process with clarity and compassion.

We will handle all aspects of your claim through the following steps:

  1. Investigating the Accident: We will thoroughly examine the circumstances of your injury, gather evidence, interview witnesses, and consult with professionals to build a strong case.
  2. Assessing Your Damages: We will carefully evaluate the full extent of your damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any long-term impacts on your life.
  3. Negotiating with Insurance Companies: We will advocate for your best interests and work to secure a fair settlement that fully compensates you for your losses.
  4. Litigating Your Case in Court: If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we are prepared to take your case to trial and present a compelling argument to a judge and jury.
  5. Providing Ongoing Support: Recovering from a personal injury is a journey, so we will be by your side to answer your questions, address your concerns, and provide support throughout the entire process.

With our dedicated legal team on your side, you can focus on your recovery while we fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.

Evaluating the Strength of Your Personal Injury Claim

Determining the validity of a personal injury case can be a complex process in and of itself, as it generally involves legal nuances and specific criteria, including:

  • Duty of Care: The responsible party must have owed you a legal duty of care, a responsibility to act reasonably to prevent harm to others.
  • Breach of Duty: There must be evidence that the responsible party breached their duty of care through negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions.
  • Causation: There must be a clear link between the responsible party's breach of duty and your injuries.
  • Damages: You must have suffered actual damages as a result of your injuries, be they medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, or property damage.

If you believe you meet these criteria, you must consult with a personal injury lawyer in Salem as soon as possible. They will evaluate the specific details of your situation, gather evidence, and advise you on the strength of your case.

Compensation for Personal Injuries in Salem, OR

If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to various types of compensation to help you recover from your losses, including economic damages and non-economic damages.

Economic damages are meant to compensate for quantifiable financial losses you’ve incurred as a result of your injury, such as:

  • Medical Expenses: Past and future medical bills for hospital stays, doctor visits, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and assistive devices.
  • Lost Wages: Income lost due to your inability to work during recovery.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity: The diminished ability to earn a living due to a long-term or permanent disability.
  • Property Damage: Any damage to your personal property (such as your vehicle) in an accident.

Non-economic damages address the intangible losses you’ve suffered, such as:

  • Pain and Suffering: The physical pain and discomfort you've endured.
  • Emotional Distress: The emotional trauma and conditions (such as anxiety, depression, or PTSD) resulting from the injury.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: The diminished ability to participate in activities you once enjoyed.
  • Loss of Consortium: The impact of your injury on your relationship with your spouse.

The specific compensation value you are entitled to will depend on the unique circumstances of your case. These often include the severity of your injuries, the extent of your economic losses, and the degree of the responsible party’s negligence.

Focus on Recovery, Not Attorney Fees

We understand that facing the aftermath of a personal injury can be stressful. But we believe that everyone deserves access to quality legal representation, regardless of their financial situation.

It’s for that reason that we work on a contingency fee basis for all of our personal injury cases. You will pay nothing in upfront fees, and we will only collect payment if we successfully recover compensation for you. In turn, you’re given the chance to take a step back and focus on your recovery and well-being while we handle the legal complexities of your case and fight for the compensation you deserve.

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

  • Access to medical care is crucial while recovering from an injury. We can work with healthcare providers to explore options such as medical liens or payment plans, ensuring you receive the necessary treatment without needing to shoulder any immediate financial burdens.

  • It’s important to be cautious when dealing with insurance companies, as they will often work to minimize your claim or find reasons to deny it altogether. It’s best to refer them to your lawyer, who will handle all communication and protect your rights in the process.

  • While many personal injury cases are settled out of court, we are prepared to take your case to trial if necessary. Our trial lawyer will present a strong case to the judge and jury, advocating for the full compensation you deserve.
