Personal Injury Due to Work Accidents
Has a Work Injury Changed Your Life?
A serious injury due to an employer’s negligence or lack of safety protocols in the workplace is a life-changing event. Dealing with medical expenses and insurance companies can be overwhelming when your injury prevents you from working.
Unlike a workers’ compensation claim, a personal injury claim resulting from an injury at work is based on fault. As a result, you are eligible to claim loss of earnings benefits as well as compensation for your pain and suffering and payment for future medical bills.
You Don’t Have to Fight Alone
If you’re the victim of a serious injury that has derailed your work and life, and you believe another person or business is at fault, you may be legally entitled to compensation.

Type of Personal Injury Claims
Wrongful Death Claims
In Oregon, wrongful death as a result of a work-related injury is one that’s caused by someone else’s actions or carelessness. It’s a terrible thing to lose a loved one this way. There are few people who can understand what you’re going through, but that doesn’t mean you have to navigate this difficult legal process alone. In these situations, immediate family members can file a claim seeking compensation for:
- Costs associated with medical and funeral expenses
- Loss of the deceased family member’s future earnings
- Non-monetary damages, including emotional damages
Personal injury laws in Oregon are designed to make up for the money you’ve lost and for the pain and suffering you’re experiencing due to an accident. The amount and type of compensation you’re likely to receive depends on your circumstances and the ability of the at-fault party to pay, but a good attorney can tell you what to expect. Possible types of compensation include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Property damage related to the injury
- Physical and emotional suffering that resulted from the injury
