Oregon Personal Injury Lawyers

The term “personal injury” refers to a general field of practice that encompasses several types of claims.  As the name “personal injury” suggests, cases within this field of practice involve an event or occurrence that caused harm or injury to someone or something.

The idea behind a personal injury case is the same concept we teach our children – “if you break it, you fix it.”  Under Oregon law, if someone causes you harm through a careless action, they are responsible for the harm they caused.  

In a personal injury case there are two types of harms that individuals can be compensated for – monetary (economic) and non-monetary (non-economic).  Monetary harms include things like property damage, medical bills, future medical bills, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity.  Compensation for non-monetary harms is meant to make up for physical pain, permanent restrictions from injuries, or interference with daily activities.  Non-monetary harms are essentially the total effect the injury had on an individual’s life.  Although non-monetary harms are not as easily calculable as medical bills or lost wages, they often constitute the greatest harm of any injury claim.
