Types of Personal Injury Cases We Cover

Car & Truck Accidents

Car & Truck Accidents:

Car accidents are unfortunately commonplace on Oregon roads and probably the most common mechanism for personal injury cases. Car accidents can result in death, and crippling injuries. If you or a loved one have suffered due to a car accident, then you deserve compensation to make amends for the pain and trouble that you’ve endured. Here at Donahue Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys do our utmost to ensure that you are fairly compensated when the worst happens. We take care of the hassling insurance companies and the legal process so you can focus on what matters most: You. Getting well. So that you can recover and rebuild.

Bike Accidents

Bike Accidents:

Bike accidents can be especially dangerous–especially when involving a car or truck. Bikes accidents are more likely to cause death or serious injury to the biker, or cyclist in these situations. Unique insurance coverage rules apply to bike accidents. If you or a close relative have been involved in a bike accident, it’s best to seek legal representation from a personal injury attorney right away. A dedicated personal injury attorney at Donahue Law Firm will to ensure the insurance companies involved don’t provide inadequate compensation. Here at Donahue Law Firm, bike-related personal injuries are one of the many injury cases we take great pride in. We’ll work to make sure you are compensated for your pain and suffering and are back on the road, enjoying what you love.

Accidents Resulting in Brain Injuries

Accidents Resulting in Brain Injuries:

Brain injuries are especially traumatic (hence the reason they are sometimes called TBIs or Traumatic Brain Injuries). The consequences of a TBI and even some mTBIs (Mild Traumatic Injuries) can be devastating and even irreversible. Brain injury cases can also be among the most difficult to obtain adequate compensation. After all, it’s quite literally in your head. Even with sophisticated imaging and medical science, no one truly knows what you’re experiencing like you do. That’s where we can help. If you or a close relative have suffered a brain injury due to an accident, then you may be entitled to compensation to aid in your recovery, and to account for your pain and suffering. We’ll work tirelessly to earn you the compensation that you deserve.

Log Truck Accidents

Log Truck Accidents:

It’s no surprise that in a state with so many tress, logging trucks are common here in Oregon. They can also prove to be especially dangerous if improperly loaded or poorly driven. From flying logs to poorly operated log trucks themselves, logging truck related accidents can be devastating. Each year people are killed and injured in such accidents. We represent those who have been injured and relatives of individuals who have died in a log trucking accident. As always, it’s our goal to achieve just compensation for the way your life has been altered. 

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian Accidents:

You shouldn’t have to be cautious to walk down the sidewalk or crosswalk. Unfortunately, drivers can be negligent, and accidents do happen. Pedestrians, like bicyclists, are protected by unique laws that not all lawyers know about. Our personal injury lawyers are different. If you or a loved one have been involved in a pedestrian accident, you should be compensated for the trauma and injuries that you have incurred. We’ll work with you to build a case to earn adequate compensation from insurers and the responsible party involved.

Wrongful Death Cases

Wrongful Death Cases:

Wrongful deaths are traumatizing for family members whose loved one has been taken away from them before their time. These types of cases can also be especially complex and require the appointment of a personal representative. Our personal injury lawyers understand these cases and the complex legal landscape they present. If you’ve suffered a loved one pass due to another’s actions, then you may be able to seek compensation from the party or parties responsible. While monetary compensation will never be adequate to replace a lost loved one, it can be helpful to compensate for lost wages, and your pain and suffering. We’ll fight to earn you recompense for your loss.

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice:

Medical practitioners are sworn to treat patients to the best of their abilities. Unfortunately, mistakes still happen, and patients who were already suffering may suffer even further at the hands of a medical practitioner. If you believe you or a loved one has fallen victim to a medical accident, we may be able to make a case to pursue compensation from insurers and the party or parties involved. This compensation may help to ease your pain and suffering, and it may pay for any additional medical expenses that you incur.

DUI/DUII/DWI Accidents

DUI/DUII/DWI Accidents:

If you or a loved one have fallen victim to a reckless driver who was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, then you deserve compensation from the reckless driver. DUI/DUII/DWI accidents can be deadly, and they can lead to severe injuries, which can prove crippling for those who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. If you believe you deserve compensation for an injury, or the death of a loved one, our personal injury lawyers can fight for compensation for you. We understand how difficult it can be to lose a loved one prematurely, and we sympathize with those who will forever be scarred by a drinking or drug-related driving accident. We aim to make the best out of these trying situations, by striving to earn you compensation to offset some of the pain and suffering that you are enduring.

Slip, Trip, & Fall Cases

Slip, Trip, & Fall Cases:

Trip, slip, and fall accidents often happen in poor working environments, or on unsafe private property. If you’ve fallen and injured yourself in the workplace, or on private property, then you may be entitled to compensation from your employer, the property owner, and/or insurance providers. Be wary that your employer and property owners should provide a safe environment to move through. If you’ve fallen due to a slippery surface, if you’ve injured yourself thanks to a lack of a handrail on a staircase, or if you’ve tripped over an obstacle that simply shouldn’t be sitting on the floor, then you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries, pain, and suffering.

T ypes of Personal Injury Cases We Cover

How soon should I get in touch with a lawyer after an injury?

After an injury, it’s best to seek medical attention right away. Get checked by a medical professional to gain a professional assessment of your injuries — you may have injuries that you don’t notice right away, yet may be debilitating after some time passes (e.g. a concussion, bruised or fractured bones, etc.). It’s best to follow your doctor’s orders to a T, even if it is inconvenient or you miss out on work — ideally, you’ll be compensated for any lost wages, as well as any medical care that you must pay for. Once you’ve received medical attention, it’s best to reach out to a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after you’ve been injured. Your personal injury attorney will know what’s best for your specific situation. They’ll take action to protect you from insurance companies that may not want to provide adequate compensation for your injury–or even pay your medical bills. You should also refrain from making statements to the police if you are questioned about who is at fault for an injury, since it may inder your case, should you pursue compensation from insurers or other parties. You may be tempted to accept calls from an insurance provider, or to speak to the police about the accident, but only a personal injury lawyer will have your best interests in mind.

Who will provide compensation for my injury?

It depends. Often, insurance companies are responsible for providing compensation to those who have been injured, since they insure against these injuries. Other times, when a party or parties have been negligent, you may have to sue for compensation for your injuries. We’ll work with you to help determine who is responsible for your injury, and we’ll ensure that the party or parties responsible end up providing you with just compensation for your pain and suffering.

Who will pay the medical bills I’ve incurred due to my injury?

It depends. You may have medical coverage that provides compensation to cover your medical costs. You may also receive compensation from an insurer if your injury was due to the fault of another individual. Again, you should speak to a personal injury lawyer to best understand who will be responsible for your medical bills. If you’ve been injured, we’ll do our utmost to ensure that your medical costs are completely covered.

How much compensation am I entitled to?

Compensation amounts can vary widely, depending on the circumstances of the case at hand. Compensation will depend on the type of injury at hand, the amount of pain and suffering incurred, the amount of wages lost, and a variety of other factors. While we may be able to provide you with an estimate of what to expect for your particular case, it’s wise not to trust law firms that will provide you with a “quote” for your personal injury. Reach out to us to schedule a consultation — we can discuss your details fully, and we can discuss your expectations for compensation.

I think I have a personal injury case, what steps should I take?

First of all, you should seek medical attention. If you’ve been injured, even if it’s a seemingly minor injury, it’s best to seek attention from a medical professional so that you have an accurate documentation of your injuries and the best plan of action to treat those injuries. Be sure to follow your doctor’s orders, and begin taking the proper steps to recovery. If police are asking you to recount the events of the accident, be sure not to admit fault for an accident that may not be your fault. Do not speak to insurers before speaking to a lawyer. You personal injury attorney can aid you in releasing statements as required, to best preserve your case and to better ensure that you receive just compensation for your injury. Remember, insurance companies often strive to provide the little or no compensation for your injuries, so that they can have a better bottom line. We work to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries, so that you can recover properly. Often insurers will provide a small settlement for an injury and that settlement will only be adequate to cover up front costs for the injury (often, just one-time medical bills). We strive to ensure that you are compensated for current medical bills, any related medical bills that you receive in the future, any lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering that you’ve endured.
