Premises Liability?

The best Oregon premises liability lawyer for you is the lawyer that gets the outcome you want.

What Is Premises Liability?

Premises liability laws require the owners of private and public properties to maintain reasonable standards of care in protecting their guests or tenants from injury. Often these types of cases involve "slip and fall" incidents or "slip and fall injuries." However, the issue extends beyond this.

Have You Been Injured On Someone Else's Property?

Even if you take the best possible care for safety, sometimes injuries occur. If you have been injured on someone else’s property in Oregon — whether commercial or private, you may have a right to recover for your damages. The {#lawyer_attorney#}s at Pacific Injury can evaluate your case and fight for your right to recover for your injuries. Any type of building - from malls to grocery stores to government buildings - can have hazards or defects that cause harm.

What Type Of Conditions Lead To Premises Liability Claims?

Some examples of hazardous conditions that can lead to premises accidents include:

  • Elevator accidents, defective elevators
  • Slip & fall accidents, including poorly maintained walkways
  • Parking lot falls
  • Escalator accidents, defective escalators
  • Sidewalk falls, unsafe sidewalks
  • Damaged, worn, or raised carpet and floorboards
  • Unsafe building conditions
  • Negligent or inadequate security
  • Insufficiency of security cameras
  • Injuries to children
  • Negligent supervision and security at schools and daycare facilities
  • School bus accidents
  • Lead poisoning

Each premises liability matter has individualized circumstances and factors, requiring careful evaluation by a skilled premises liability attorney to advise on your matter. Getting you the best possible outcome is our top priority. Call us for a free legal evaluation today.

Premises Liability
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

How long do Oregon Premises Liability cases take to resolve?

The length of time it will take to conclude and resolve your Oregon Premises Liability case is dependent on a number of factors, only some of which are within your control. These include:

  • Your Choice of Lawyer: Selection of an experienced lawyer to handle the legal hurdles in your Oregon personal injury case, including insurance company negotiations and potential litigation (should it become necessary), dramatically can change the timeline of your case.
  • Severity of Injuries: The scope of your injuries as well as the medical treatment necessary for you to adequately proceed with an accident claim.
  • Negotiations: In a large number of Oregon Premises Liability cases, the insurance company will “lowball” the early settlement offers to an accident victim, often attempting to pressure the victim into taking a lesser amount then the claim is worth. An experienced Oregon Premises Liability lawyer will anticipate the “stall and delay” tactics commonly used by insurance to wear down clients. The attorneys at Pacific Injury Law Firm won’t be bullied, stalled, or intimidated by insurance companies.
  • Accident Investigation: Preparation for trial or even negotiations requires knowing exactly what occurred in an accident. A lawyer working on your case may need to use one or several investigators or specialists to reconstruct the facts, depending on the type of accident in which you were involved. Further investigation may be needed to identify all the potentially liable parties or witnesses.
  • Litigation: Sometimes negotiations fail, or an insurance company simply is unwilling to pay what a Premises Liability claim should be worth. If a settlement cannot be obtained, your attorney would likely need to file a lawsuit and proceed to trial. In that event, the time of resolution is controlled by issues including the evidence discovery process, mediation, depositions, and further negotiations with the defendant's insurance company.
How much will I have to pay my attorney in a Premises Liability case?

All consultations with the lawyers at our firm about your Oregon Premises Liability case are free. If we accept your case, unless otherwise agreed, we also take on the expenses associated with recovering on your behalf. You pay nothing, and we don't get paid until we recover on your behalf. At that time, we will pay expenses from the recovered amount. Then our firm is paid a percentage of the recovery at the end of the case that is consistent with rules of professional responsibility and local ethics rules (depending on the specific situation and fee agreement, typically about 33%, or 40% if the matter goes to trial or arbitration). The client takes the rest of the recovered amount. This arrangement is known as a "contingent fee" - we don't get paid unless you do as well.

How much is my Oregon Premises Liability case worth?

Valuing any personal injury case requires consideration of many factors, and Premises Liability cases are no exception. The first step in valuing a Premises Liability accident claim is determining fault. Who is at fault for the accident? Sometimes the answer is not entirely clear. Even though there may be shared fault by the victim (comparative negligence), you still may be entitled to compensation.

Second, the scope, severity, medical expenses, and permanency of the injuries must be evaluated. After an accident, treating doctors will try to make predictions about how long injuries will take to heal and how they will impact your life in the future, but there is no certainty until actual healing takes place. For example, an injury to a joint might heal but result in loss of motion. In other instances, physical therapy will improve healing and you will regain a full range of motion. In still other situations, surgery may be necessary, or a limitation to the range of motion may never fully recover.

The severity and degree of permanency of your injuries, along with any loss of wages, earning capacity, "pain and suffering," and general loss of life enjoyment of life will impact the value of the case. For instance, if you lose the ability to pursue a loved hobby, like a leg injury that prevents cycling, it could also affect the claim’s value.

Finally, the amount of financial recovery from a Premises Liability case may be limited by the amount of insurance available by the parties, or the partial responsibility of the victim of the injury.

What Is Oregon Personal Injury Protection (PIP)?

PIP provides a source of payment for YOUR medical bills and some of YOUR wage loss following an auto accident. Further, PIP is no-fault, meaning that it will begin paying on your injuries immediately, rather than waiting for liability to be determined. Similarly, Med Pay provides some coverage for YOUR medical bills. These are called "no-fault" coverages because they pay even if the accident is your fault.

By law, every auto insurance policy sold in Oregon must include personal injury protection (PIP), which is called "no-fault," providing coverage if you’re injured while either operating or maintaining a vehicle. PIP can also provide coverage if you are injured by a vehicle on a bicycle or as a pedestrian. Because it is "no-fault," no matter the at-fault party for an accident, personal injury protection will pay for your injuries. PIP insurance provides coverage for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income and wages
  • Funeral expenses
  • Other expenses arising from your injury

The minimum coverage under Oregon law for PIP coverage is $15,000. However, buyers may always buy a policy with higher limits if desired. PIP policies vary depending on carrier and cost, sometimes having a deductible (which can reduce your premium). However, the maximum deductible allowed in Oregon is $250, so it is unlikely to substantially reduce your premiums.

Do I need a lawyer if my damages from a Premises Liability are less than $10,000?

The short answer to this common question is “yes.” You should talk to a lawyer to represent you on these claims because of how insurance companies handle smaller claims. In addition to large claims, insurance companies process a huge number of smaller claims valued at less than $10,000. To do this, they commonly offer injured parties very small amounts of money or no money at all. The insurance companies are betting that small claims will just go away without the injured person seeking legal help.

However, Oregon has created a law (ORS 20.080) which is intended to level the playing field for injured parties with smaller claims and to promote these injured parties’ ability to get legal counsel. Generally, the law accomplishes this by awarding attorney fees to a party who successfully uses a lawyer to represent them in recovering their damages (medical costs, property losses, and other expenses including as lost wages). These fees for your lawyer are awarded if you make a demand for payment under $10,000.00, and the defendant (or their insurance company) declines the offer or offers less than you demand. If you subsequently are awarded more, you are also entitled to attorney fees under the law. Here is an example:

  1. Bill Bicyclist is injured by a motorist and suffers damages less than $10,000. Bill smartly contacts Pacific Injury Law Firm, who serves a written demand for Bill’s damages on the motorist and their insurance company. The demand makes clear that the demand is being made pursuant to ORS 20.080, and provide proof of damages (receipts, bills, etc).
  2. Bill’s Premises Liability an attorney waits for 30 days, during which time the insurance company responds with a letter denying the claim, and offering Bill nothing._
  3. Bill Files a lawsuit against the motorist.
  4. Because the insurance company offered $0 to Bill, if Bill’s skilled an attorneys recover anything at trial, even a single dollar, the motorist and their insurance company must pay the amount awarded by the court or arbitrator, in addition to paying Bill’s an attorney fees and court costs.
  5. In the event the insurance company offers some amount of money in their initial offer, they would have to receive a better result at trial or arbitration to avoid having to pay an attorney fees.
  6. The Portland, Oregon Premises Liability attorneys at Pacific Injury Law Firm are skilled at using the leverage that the Oregon legislature has provided in ORS 20.080 to recover for our clients involved in less-catastrophic injury cases.
What should I do after a Premises Liability injury?

Document the Accident

As soon as possible you should document the facts of the accident. Begin a folder to keep all the information together. Be sure you have the information you need about any witnesses. You might want to take photographs of the cars involved, the location of the accident, and your injuries. Draw a diagram of the accident scene with sufficient detail as to locations of landmarks and vehicles to assist your recollection later on.

The insurance company for the driver at fault may want you to give them a statement, either in person or on the phone. We recommend that you not give such a statement, at least without first consulting with an attorney. You do want to talk with your own insurance company, however, so that you can receive any medical payment or personal injury protection benefits that may be available.

Keep An Injury Diary

People either forget or repress many of the problems they suffer after a serious injury. You should begin keeping your diary up-to-date immediately. This information can be invaluable at the time of settlement negotiations or trial. You should record the following information in your diary:

  1. A list of your injuries. Explain your pain and discomfort
  2. Explain how your injuries have affected your job performance. Explain how your injuries have affected your day-to-day activities.
  3. Do you have any trouble getting dressed, driving a car, sleeping?
  4. Have you been unable to ski, dance, garden, golf, or participate in your other hobbies?
  5. Have you missed any family outings, vacations, or church activities?

Recovering From Your Injuries

The most important matter to keep in mind is that you recover fully, or as much as possible, from all your injuries. You should faithfully follow any instructions from your doctor, and be sure to keep any appointments with specialists, physical therapists, etc. In our view, legal issues should be secondary to your full recovery.

Doctor Reports

Please be aware and assume that everything stated and/or observed by your doctor may be taken down in detailed notes. These notes, or a report made from them, are later read by the insurance company when it is time to negotiate the value of your personal injury claim. The value of your claim largely depends on your doctors' reports. If your doctor is not aware of your limitations, pain, etc., he/she will not provide that information in the report. If your doctor feels an injury is exaggerated, it may be put in a report.

Give Complete Information To Your Doctor About Your Premises Liability Injury

Remember to tell your doctor about all your pains, discomforts, and limitations. Your doctor will determine whether the complaints are related to the accident. Some problems may seem minor but relate to another injury in another part of your body. Your doctor will need this information in order to properly treat you. Try to be as accurate and objective as possible; under no circumstances should you fabricate or exaggerate any problems. Include the following information:

  1. Complaints of pain immediately after the accident and symptoms developed within the first few days.
  2. Describe how the accident happened and what caused your injuries during impact (connect your injuries with what happened to your body during impact). For example, your head struck the windshield causing head injury.
  3. Symptoms that developed later and what symptoms you are presently having.
    • How long each symptom lasted.
    • Tell your doctor about any job-related activities that affect your injuries and if your job performance is adversely affected. Your doctor then can determine whether your injuries prevent you from performing your job for a certain amount of time or permanently.
  4. If you return to work and find that your injuries are aggravated, return to your doctor. Your doctor may recommend you stop work for a while, or reassure you that working will not interfere or prolong your recovery.
  5. If your doctor recommends that you not work for a while, the insurance company will require something in writing from your doctor indicating the time period that you are to remain off work.

Income Loss Verification

If you lost any income because of your premises liability, either through employment or odd jobs, those losses must be documented. You may also have wage benefits available under your auto policy, or another auto policy, such as the driver or owner of the car. In addition, if you were employed there might be wage loss benefits available through your employer or union. If you are going to be off work for any length of time, it is important to explore every avenue.

Medical Bills

Be certain to contact all your own insurance carriers immediately regard payment of bills. You may have Personal Injury Protection or Medical Payments coverage available through an auto policy. You might also have health insurance that can help.

Out of Pocket Expenses

Keep receipts from any prescriptions or medications that you have had to purchase from your premises liability and any other out-of-pocket expenses. Also keep track of mileage to see medical providers, particularly if you are required to travel significant distances to get treatment for your injuries. Some of these expenses may be reimbursable at the time of settlement with the insurance company.

Traits of the Best Oregon Personal Injury Lawyer

Hallmarks of the Best Oregon Personal Injury Lawyer

Anybody who has been injured in an accident likely needs the assistance of a lawyer who practices in injury law. If the accident occurred in Oregon, you’ll no doubt want the best Oregon personal injury attorney you can find working on your side, helping you through the process. But what traits are common in the lawyers that qualify as truly “excellent,” versus those who are just average. After having worked with hundreds of clients and thousands of client consultations, we’ve distilled the most common traits that clients are seeking when they mean they go looking for the best Oregon personal injury attorney for their case.

1. Experience

There’s no substitute for plain old experience when it comes to litigations and client satisfaction. Experience can only occur through the handling of large numbers of cases, working with opposing attorneys, and lots of time in the courtroom. You wouldn’t want a doctor who was about to perform their first surgery on you even if they had read and memorized every book on the subject. Sometimes there’s no substitute for just having done it many times before. The lawyers at Pacific Injury Law Firm have handled hundreds of cases over the years, and been in court countless times. From motion hearings, jury trials, bench (judge only, no jury) trials, and even successfully arguing before the Oregon Court of Appeals and Oregon Supreme Court, our injury attorneys aren’t new to litigation and the fight for clients.

2. Accessible to the Client

This might sound obvious, but anybody who has worked with attorneys for any length of time is certain to have encountered the complaint that “I can never reach them” or they “are way too busy to talk to me.” It’s an unfortunate fact that many personal injury attorneys actively avoid their clients, or even pride themselves as being “too important” or “too busy” to actually meet with their own clients. Clients end up speaking with assistants or paralegals most of the time. This is not the case at Pacific Injury Law Firm. We know that your case is one of the most important things in your life, and we make every effort to make sure we take care of you and show you the respect that you deserve. While we are no doubt busy, the vast majority of the interaction with our firm will be with the lawyer actually handling your case. We believe that we can’t fully get behind you until we work directly with you. We also always remember that we work for the client, not the other way around. When you hire Pacific Injury Law Firm, you become part of our team.

3. Courtroom, Negotiation, Mediation, and Arbitration Skills.

Not every case is settled in the courtroom by a jury. Statistically, most are not, by a huge margin. The ability to negotiate on behalf of your client is every bit as critical - if not more oftentimes - than being an effective courtroom advocate. The truth is, juries are unpredictable and a trial is uncertain even with the strongest cases. When you go into a courtroom, you are handing over the final decision maker to people to whom you have no real insight or background. Because of this, both plaintiffs and defendants are incentivized to negotiate to a known settlement. To do this, the best injury lawyers are skilled at recognizing the weaknesses of their clients’ cases, as well as the strengths that can be leveraged into great settlements. With backgrounds in several areas of law - from criminal to family law to personal injury - our Oregon injury attorneys have experience negotiating and obtaining great results for hundreds if not thousands of clients.

4. Thorough Investigators

Not all Oregon personal injury cases are obvious on the face who is at fault or how an accident occurred. Sometimes seemingly straight forward cases become muddied or confused as to legal causation once discovery starts coming in and we start evaluating the evidence in the case. There might be multiple parties at fault which require investigation, or the cause of a car or truck accident (for example) might require expert witnesses to reconstruct the scened. Medical conditions or injuries almost always require testimony or other evidence by expert medical personnel. The best Oregon injury lawyers need assistance from experts in an array of fields to build their case effectively. To do this, they first need to thoroughly investigate the case themselves and familiarize themselves with the evidence. Then, if necessary, they will need to use other expert investigators to gather more information to put the case together. Building a personal injury case takes time. At Pacific Injury Law Firm, building that successful case starts with a thorough investigation.

5. Organization

Personal injury cases are paper and information-intensive. Between medical records, client and opposing counsel letters, notes, email and text communications, photographs, videos, and the massive amount of other information that becomes part of the file, modern personal injury cases are a virtual firehose of data and potential evidence. Sometimes a key piece of evidence might be a single page of chart notes buried among thousands of pages of medical records? The best personal injury lawyers need to find a way to consistently organize and parse this information, and keep it organized so that it is useable. The lawyers at Pacific Injury Law Firm are fastidious about maintaining organization of client files. In fact, founder Adam J. Brittle, as a former electrical engineer, has a penchant for seeking out new and innovative ways to stay at the forefront of legal technology. To this end, he is constantly leveraging and building new tools to make use of emerging technologies like Amazon’s machine learning tools, AWS pattern matching, and document processing offerings. Our office seeks to stay at the forefront of all law offices, ensuring that every text, email, document, message, legal research, or piece of medical discovery is automatically associated with your file to be put to best use in your case. At Pacific Injury Law Firm, we believe that organization is key to providing you a formidable platform from which to advocate your case.

6. They Listen

Sometimes the goal that a lawyer thinks is the best for a client is not actually what the client themselves wants. Clients sometimes want to settle a case earlier than their attorney would like to. Sometimes a client feels it is necessary to “have their day in court” to be heard by a judge or jury, to tell somebody about how an accident has impacted their lives. The top Oregon personal injury attorneys are the ones that will actually listen to their client’s goal and remember that they work for the client. As lawyers, our job is to try and achieve those outcomes that work best for our clients and their families, not the outcome that is best for our public image or ego. At Pacific Injury Law Firm we treat this duty seriously. We will give you candid advice about your case. If a client has unrealistic expectations, we will try to listen to their goals and explain to them why it might not be feasible. If a client has goals that are realistic but different than our own, our job is to educate about the client's options and then follow their instructions. It goes without saying that this is all done with strict adherence to Oregon’s Rules of Professional Ethics.

7. Compassion and Empathy For the Client

There’s no avoiding it, cases involving injury are hard. Clients come to see us in terrible circumstances. Whether it is a car or truck accident, death from the negligence of another driver, motorcycle accident, or other injuries, our clients come to us when they have been hurt and need help. Recognizing the pain, fear, and even anger that our clients often are experiencing having had their life disrupted - often dramatically - is normal and expected. Compassion and empathy for this circumstance is a trait that often can’t be taught, and is found in all of the very best personal injury attorneys. At Pacific Injury Law Firm, we know that injuries are frustrating, and we feel for your loss. One of the joys of working with injured people is that we know we get to help people who generally have done nothing wrong. Our injury lawyers are respectful and honored to be hired to help individuals in their time of need, and remain cognizant of our duty to help.
