There is broad spectrum of events that can have a negative impact on one’s life. Unfortunately, those on the spectrum that involve a physical injury are the most impactful as the effects touch the emotional, mental, and financial health of the victim. Private or personal injury events are especially traumatizing because the effects can be long-lasting. Whether it be a slip and fall accident while out having coffee that leaves you with chronic nerve pain, or a dog bite that leaves permanent scaring personal injury events can leave their stain on your life for years to come.
If you are in an auto accident that is caused by someone else’s irresponsibility or negligence, you could be facing not just huge medical bills, but lost wages, rehabilitation, and months – or years – of pain and suffering. In some cases there is permanent disability, and the costs of ongoing medical care can be staggering.

Our attorneys specialize in life’s toughest situations
- Social Security Disability: If you have been consistently working throughout your lifetime, then you have been paying social security taxes from the wages you have earned. Those taxes have helped to fund the Social Security Disability program. In the event you have been permanently disabled, either due to an accident or ailment, you are entitled to social security disability benefits to help with loss of wages, medical costs, and other financial support. However, nine times out of ten the initial application for benefits is denied. We help more than 900 Oregon residents each year secure an approved application for benefits.
- Workers’ Compensation: If you have been injured while at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. This program is designed to financially help an injured worker, until he or she can return to work. However, the burden of proof is on you. Workers’ compensation insurance companies do not want to pay claims, they are motivated only by saving the company as much money as possible. Having a skilled and experienced attorney in your corner can make all the difference. Our team secures nearly 1,000 approved workers’ compensation claims per year.
- Personal Injury: While this is a broad term that encompasses many different scenarios, the impact of a personal injury is not so general. In fact, each personal injury case is different because each family is different. The impact of a personal injury event is far-reaching and can last many years due to physical, emotional, mental, and financial damage. The only option after a personal injury event is to pick up the pieces and move forward one day at a time. We help more than 800 Oregon residents per year secure the settlement they need to do just that.
- Bankruptcy: There are a hundred different scenarios that can occur, which leave people with no other choice than to file bankruptcy. The process of bankruptcy was written into law many years ago as a way for people to have a legal recourse to overwhelming debt. The overarching idea is to give you a fresh start at a life without the stress of creditors, foreclosure, and repossession. We have a dedicated team of bankruptcy attorneys who are committed to helping you every step of the way.
