In Oregon, with very limited exceptions, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim for motor vehicle crashes or premises liability accidents with injuries is two years from the date the injury occurred.
The Longer You Wait, the More Evidence Disappears.
Contacting an experienced personal injury attorney immediately after you have been injured by another person or party’s negligence will allow your legal representative to preserve crucial evidence that will help strengthen your case. That includes gathering police reports, medical records, witness testimonies, and other valuable supporting information right away, so the integrity of the evidence remains intact.
If you do not act promptly, the evidence that points to the negligent party’s liability can weaken or disappear quickly.
Building Your Personal Injury Case Takes Time.
Personal injury claims require a skilled and precise legal approach to pursue the optimal outcome. This takes time. We will take the necessary time to accurately assess all your sustained damages after the accident to reach the maximum recovery figure.
This is important because once an injury claim is settled, the defense and the insurance companies have no obligations to pay you any further.
Waiting Can Become Overwhelmingly Stressful.
We understand getting hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence is a lot to wrap your head around. Combined with ongoing medical appointments, treatment plans, and follow-up care, the reality of your injuries can leave you feeling both physically and emotionally exhausted. However, once your medical bills begin piling up, and your revenue dries up from not being able to work, the stress of your overall circumstances can become overwhelming. Talking to someone about your injury and how it occurred is an important step in learning more about your legal rights and options to file a claim.
