Unfortunately, not everyone out on the water is as safe as you are. Boating accidents in Oregon often result in serious injury, and sometimes death. If you've been involved in a boating accident, the first thing to do after reporting it is to get an Oregon boating accident lawyer on your side. Legal wrangling may not be your first inclination, but there is a lot to be said for having an advocate right from the start.
There are many things that an Oregon boating accident lawyer from Peterson Law Offices will advise you to do early on in the process. For instance, it's important to have a specialist assess you for the true extent of your injuries. Back injuries, which are common in boating accidents, can be hard to detect by someone who is not a specialist in soft-tissue injuries. Insurance companies count on the fact that you won't be able to seek this kind of specialized medical care before they settle their claim with you.
