Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
It can be challenging to understand whether or not you have a personal injury case. The best advice we can give is for you to seek out a free consultation with a Portland personal injury lawyer. An attorney with extensive experience can examine the facts of your case and help point you in the right direction toward recovering compensation. Briefly, you can ask yourself the following questions:
- Did you sustain an injury caused by the negligent actions of someone else?
- Do you have expenses that have arisen as a result of the injury?
- Are you receiving pushback from an insurance carrier or at-fault party when trying to recover compensation?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you might very well have a personal injury case to pursue. There are various elements that must be in place in order for an injury claim to be viable, and an attorney can help you understand whether or not these elements are in place for your particular situation.
What Damages Can I Recover?
There may be various types of compensation individuals can recover after sustaining an injury caused by the negligence of another party. At Washington Injury Law, we firmly believe that clients deserve compensation for their economic and non-economic damages.
- Economic damages. These revolve around calculable expenses that Portland personal injury victims will likely endure as a result of the injury, the recovery process, and any long-term effects. Our team will use receipts and bills that the victim receives and pursue full compensation for the following:
- Emergency medical and hospital expenses
- All follow-up doctor office visits
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation expenses
- Medical devices and prescription medications
- Lost wages or loss of future earnings
- Property damage expenses
- Various household and transportation out-of-pocket losses
- Non-economic damages. These damages revolve around less obviously calculable expenses. There are various types of losses injury victims will endure that are not necessarily reflected in receipts and bills that arise. These are often referred to as pain and suffering damages but specifically seek to provide compensation for an injury victim’s physical and emotional pain and suffering as well as their loss of quality of life.
There are various factors that can affect how much compensation a person receives, and we encourage you to speak to your Portland personal injury lawyer to understand how much your case may be worth.
Oregon Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims
In the state of Oregon, there is a personal injury statute of limitations of two years in place. This means that personal injury victims in Portland must file a civil lawsuit against the alleged negligent party within two years from the date the injury occurs. Failing to do so will almost certainly mean the case gets dismissed, leaving the injury victim unable to recover compensation for their losses.
The personal injury statute of limitations has nothing to do with any insurance carrier deadlines in place. We encourage you to report any injury to the appropriate insurance carrier as promptly as possible to avoid claim delays or denials.
