Hiring a lawyer is an important decision if you have large medical bills, lost wages, or were injured due to negligence.
Accident.com connects you to a lawyer that makes sure you get paid everything you are entitled to. Your lawyer files your claim for you and then negotiates the amount of your settlement.
If the insurance company is believed to be acting in bad faith, your lawyer can request a trial and sue for a higher settlement.
Your lawyer will:
1) Request medical records for you.
2) Review police reports and medical charts.
3) Communicate back and forth with your insurance adjuster.
Accident.com lawyers do the heavy lifting, so you don’t have to.
People who hire attorneys statistically receive more money in their injury settlement. Even after paying the lawyer's contingency fee, people still walk away with more money than they probably would have received without an attorney.
You do not have to pay your attorney unless you win. When you win, your lawyer is paid a percentage of your final settlement.
This means the better you do, the better your lawyer does. It’s a win-win.
Bankruptcy, divorce, criminal charges, etc, can all affect your injury case. Your personal injury lawyer is familiar with different areas of law and can work with other attorneys if needed. Your Accident.com lawyer will work with your other lawyer (from other practice areas) to reach a solution in your best interest. A personal injury lawyer can also handle the insurance company's lawyers if your case goes past negotiations.
Oregon's statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is two years. This means you have two years since the date of your accident to file your claim.
No, Oregon is technically not a no-fault state. Oregon is state that requires drivers to have no-fault insurance, also known as personal Injury Protection (PIP) to pay for their own injuries after an accident. Victims are not however, limited when it comes to suing an at-fault driver for compensation. Unlike most states, Oregon's policy allows those involved in an auto accident to have the quick payout from no-fault insuarce, and still have the ability to sue if the other party is proven to be at fault for the accident.
Pain and suffering is a phrase used to describe the physical and mental anguish a person experiences from their injuries after an accident. For example, after an injury a victim might develop persisting depression and stress, which would be classifed as pain and suffering. In many cases, when calculating the value of a person's pain and suffering, an attorney will use what is called the “multiplier” method. This method multiply the total amount of economic damages by certain number (typically a number between 1 and 5), to determine how much money should be granted for the pain and suffering of the victim. Another method that an attorney may use to calculate pain and suffering is the daily rate method. This method involves assigning a daily rate to a person’s pain and suffering and multiplying it by the number of days it took for a victim to recover.
For the Accident.com founders, that question was: “Why is getting paid by insurance companies such a frustrating experience?" Frustrating is an understatement. Navigating the world of insurance is confusing, stressful and a step backward in time (hello, call centers). Even when they know they are covered, people know insurance companies make more money if they pay you less.
