Compensation Available for Personal Injuries in West Linn

The specific compensation you qualify for in your personal injury case will depend on the details of your accident. That being said, here’s an overview of the general categories of damages you might be entitled to.

Medical Expenses

This category covers the physical costs associated with your injury, including past, present, and future medical bills. It can reflect doctor visits, hospital stays, surgery, medication, rehabilitation, therapy, and special medical devices or equipment.

Lost Wages

If your injury prevents you from working, you may receive compensation for lost wages during your recovery. This could also include lost future earning capacity if your injuries have long-term effects on your ability to work.

Pain and Suffering

This subcategory of non-economic damages repays you for the physical and emotional pain you've endured due to your accident and resulting injuries.

Property Damage

If your personal property was damaged in the accident (e.g., a vehicle in a collision), you can seek compensation for repairs or replacement.

Loss of Consortium

This applies to spouses of injured individuals, reflecting the loss of companionship, intimacy, and household services the victim’s injuries have caused.

Wrongful Death

If you lose a loved one due to someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of companionship.

It's important to note that this isn’t an exhaustive list. Other damages may be applicable depending on your specific situation.

Consulting with a West Linn personal injury lawyer is the best way to understand the full scope of the compensation you might be entitled to. Your attorney can assess the details of your case, determine what damages are applicable, and negotiate for the maximum available compensation.

What Evidence Do I Need to Prove My Personal Injury Claim in West Linn?

To substantiate a personal injury claim, you'll need to gather evidence that establishes four key elements:

  1. Duty of Care: The person or entity you're filing against had a legal duty to act in a way that would prevent harm from befalling you.
  2. Breach of Duty: The person or entity in question breached their duty of care by acting negligently or carelessly.
  3. Causation: The breach of duty directly caused your injury.
  4. Actual Harm: You suffered demonstrable harm or losses (financial losses, pain and suffering, etc.) as a result of your injury.

Here are some of the evidence types that can support these elements:

The specific evidence needed will vary depending on your unique case. Consult a personal injury lawyer to learn more.

Can I Still Recover Damages If I Was Partially at Fault for My Accident?

In Oregon, you can recover damages even if you were partially at fault for an accident, thanks to the state's pure comparative negligence law.

Under this system, the percentage of fault you’re assigned will directly affect the amount of compensation you receive. A jury or insurance adjuster will determine the percentage of fault for each party involved in the accident, and your final award will be reduced by the percentage attributed to you.

For example, if you're eligible for $100,000 in damages but are found to be 20% responsible, you would receive $80,000.

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.
