Personal injury cases, such as ones involving auto, truck, construction, boating, or other types of accidents, often leave victims with physical and mental damage. Unfortunately, the physical damage sometimes can be life-altering, leaving a victim unable to earn a living and with astronomical medical bills.
Our team of catastrophic injury attorneys has years of experience handling personal injury cases in Portland. We are passionate about assisting our clients in putting their lives back together both financially and emotionally.
What is a catastrophic injury?
Catastrophic injuries are severe injuries that often result from the negligent or reckless actions of another party. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, and severe dog bites are just some of the catastrophic injury cases our law office has handled. An injury of this nature can happen in any circumstance, but when it involves the negligent or reckless actions of a third party, it is essential that a victim consults an experienced Portland personal injury attorney.
The Law Offices of Jon Friedman has handled many different types of personal injury and accident cases including:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Bus accidents
We understand that suffering a devastating physical injury creates a lot of emotional and financial stress on our clients and their loved ones. Our team of attorneys handles each and every catastrophic injury case with compassion, care, and professionalism. Not only do we want to hold the responsible party liable, but we want to take the burden off of our clients as much as we possibly can.
What can our office do for a catastrophic injury victim?
Oftentimes, our clients are under a lot of financial stress due to a large volume of medical bills. Additionally, they may be unable to work either temporarily or permanently. We understand that money sometimes is a huge priority, especially in situations like this.
Our lawyers are focused on securing the maximum compensation under the law for our clients. We know that the law sometimes makes this difficult with caps on non-economic damages and motor vehicle operators who have no insurance or very low insurance coverage.
Despite these frustrating circumstances, our professional and experienced legal team will fight tirelessly to ensure that each and every client we represent gets what he or she deserves, whether it is from the responsible party or in the form of government benefits like social security disability insurance.
Some of the damages available in a catastrophic injury case include:
- Past, present, and future medical costs
- Past, present, and future loss of ability to earn a living
- Past, present, and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering
