Eugene 3rd-Party Workers Compensation Attorney

If you were injured on the job in Oregon by a third-party (someone other than your employer), you need a personal injury lawyer and may need a workers compensation lawyer. At Arnold Law, our attorneys have experience litigating and negotiating personal injury claims.

However, if you were in a car accident while on the job or otherwise injured by someone else’s negligence in Lane County, Oregon or elsewhere, you may be able to pursue a claim against the third party.

    Wrongful Death – Drunk Driver Kills Teenage Girl

    After a party in the hills, a drunk driver rolls his car off of an embankment, seriously injuring his passengers and killing our client’s teenage daughter. The car’s severely intoxicated owner and surviving passengers claim the decedent was driving. Our investigation uncovered a possible conspiracy between the kids to blame the girl who couldn’t speak for herself. The DA’s Office convicted the car owner for Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor but refused to have the blood in the car analyzed for DNA to establish who was driving. Arnold Law was able to seize the blood evidence, had DNA tests performed, and hired a passenger kinesiologist to determine the locations of the occupants based on blood location. The discovery of the car owner’s blood on the steering column led to a negotiated settlement between the injured occupants and the owner’s insurance company.
