Portland Personal Injury Lawyers – Multnomah County Attorneys
For Portland-area clients, the personal injury attorneys of Arnold Law assist those who have been injured by the negligence or recklessness of others. Our law firm utilizes a team approach to case management and trial preparation to make sure clients resolve their injury claims as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Our goal is for a personal injury lawyer to help a client to be in the best position to make a decision on settlement versus a lawsuit soon after getting healthy or becoming medically stationary.
Many Portland personal injury lawyers are in essence personal injury “mills” where they throw the case in the hopper after meeting a new client and do not actively work it up until just before the statute of limitations. We do not do that. We actively work with a client from day one to stay informed on their medical progress and assist them with insurance payments and other issues as they come up.
This approach to Oregon personal injury cases allows clients to make informed decisions about rejecting or accepting motor vehicle accident settlement offers or choosing to file a lawsuit with the help of a personal injury lawyer (and whether to ultimately go before a jury).
Portland’s Multnomah County juries are fair and just but trials are not just about how much money someone’s injuries are worth. Cases that go to trial most frequently have a “problem,” such as a liability issue (who’s at fault) or a causation problem (whether a pre-existing health problem is the true cause to current pain) which is where an experienced and attentive personal injury lawyer can help most.
A personal injury lawyer can work on any size of claim, but it is definitely necessary to hire a personal injury lawyer if you have a catastrophic injury or other major losses. Contacting a personal injury lawyer as early as possible can help the entire process go smoother. The attorneys at Arnold Law handle many types of cases, giving them a better ability to allocate time to attend to the specifics of a client’s catastrophic personal injury case. In Portland, our personal injury attorneys are also able to draw from their other practice areas to create strategies for the case.
If you are looking for a personal injury lawyer in Portland, ask about the attorney’s history settling cases or filing suits. It can be complex to determine whether it is in a client’s best interest to settle or wait for medical recovery to file suit. The lawyer and client need to communicate about the balance of short term and long term needs.
