Top FAQ for Portland Personal Injury Cases
How much will lawyers charge to represent me in a personal injury case? The amount that a lawyer may receive in a contingency fee contract varies by state. In Oregon, a typical contingency fee is 1/3 of the total monies recovered in the case, but this can vary. Whatever the fee arrangement is with your attorney, be certain that it is clearly stated in writing.
Should I speak to the insurance adjuster? You have a contractual obligation to speak to your isurance company and cooperate with them fully. You have no obligations to the other driver's insurance company and should not talk to them without your attorney's presence.
Who is going to pay my medical bills aftre the accident and for how long? Your insurance company will pay all related medical bills for the next 2 years or up to $15,000.
What damages am I entitled in a motor vehicle crash caused by another party? Medical expenses: physical therapy, doctors’ visits, ambulance fees, in home services, permanent disability – past, current and future. Lost wages: both in the past and future. Pain and suffering: This is for the mental and physical distress of your injuries. Loss of affection or companionship: Your injuries could affect your ability to show affection or be a companion to your partner.
How long do I have to file personal injury lawsuit? Every state has a statute of limitations that limits the time you have to file a lawsuit after you suffer some type of injury. In Oregon, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case provides you with 6 month to 2 years from the date of your injury to file a civil lawsuit. It is vital that you follow this rule to the letter. If you do not get your lawsuit filed on time, the Oregon civil court system will probably not hear your case. Any right to compensation is thereby lost.
