You may be wondering "why is it so important to call a lawyer after an accident?" The answer is actually simple:
in our opinion, you will receive more money in compensation and will have to do less work yourself with a good personal injury attorney on your side. We've worked on over a thousand personal injury cases around Oregon and southern Washington over the past several years. If you've suffered a personal injury, call us to get informed of your rights.
The average accident victim--whether it's a result of a car accident, a slip and fall, or a dog bite--usually has no idea how to proceed. Nor should they. Accidents are, thankfully, an out-of-the-ordinary event.
That's why when they happen, it's important to bring in the help of an expert immediately. The attorneys at Peterson Law Offices will let you know about those who will try to undermine your case, this entity usually being the insurance companies involved. Beware of their attempts to minimize your injuries by simply "paying you off" quickly.
Keep in mind, however, that many injuries to muscles, tendons, nerves, and the like don't become obvious for days or even weeks. If you've settled with an insurance company early on, you have absolutely no recourse to recover monies for lost wages, future medical bills, and the like. Contact Peterson Law Offices at 503-280-0888 as soon as possible and let us help guide you through this otherwise confusing process.
