When you call or email us, you will get a free consultation about your claim. Some questions we often get from clients are:
- How long will my claim take?
Every claim is unique. Some settle in a few months, some can take over a year. It depends on how badly you’re injured and how long you received medical care. We are careful not to settle your claim before you’re healed and back to your life again.
- What is my claim worth?
Every claim is different and the value of the claim depends on many things such as your prior medical history, how badly you were hurt, what type of medical treatment you received and for how long. We will always go over your settlement options with you prior to making a demand on your claim and when finishing up your settlement.
- How long do I have to make a claim?
In Oregon, a claim for personal injury generally must either be settled or a lawsuit filed within two years of the accident. However, it is less stressful for you if you contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. Insurance companies often try to settle claims quickly, and for a fraction of the value. Having an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side helps protect you from aggressive insurance tactics.
