From Portland to Hermiston or Coos Bay, our attorneys are here for you and want to hear your story!

What is Workers’ Compensation?

In Oregon, workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that protects individuals who get injured on the job from potentially losing out on thousands of dollars and helps them with medical care bills, lost wages, and ongoing health care fees.

Our Workers’ Comp Expertise Areas

Denied Claims

If you were injured at work but your claim was denied, don’t give up. Our experienced attorneys in Portland, OR are ready to learn about your situation, help you request a hearing, contest the denial, and fight for the benefits you deserve!

Closed & Reopened Claims

If you’ve received a notice of closure in which the insurance company closed your claim too early, we can help you appeal it and reopen your claim. If you received benefits in the past, and your condition came back or got worse, you may be entitled to additional compensation.

Consequential Claims

If you’ve had your insurance company downplay your serious injury as a temporary “strain” or your existing injury caused you to suffer another injury, we can help you get more conditions covered. Let us help you file your consequential claim!


We often get asked if it’s possible to get a settlement after a work-related injury, and the answer is often yes. We can help you fight your claim in court to keep those benefits, or we can help you resolve your claim and negotiate a settlement.

Overuse Injuries & Occupational Disease

Sometimes pain develops gradually as a result of repetitive movements, often leading to overuse injuries and occupational disease. We have extensive experience representing people with conditions including:


  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Neck, back, shoulder, and knee arthritis or pain
  • Hearing loss
  • Neuropathy
  • Trigger finger
  • Tendonitis or bursitis

Accidents & Traumatic Injuries

Whether it’s a fall at a construction site, a machinery accident, or a sudden pain when moving a patient, the law in Oregon protects you. At RGMR, we are experts in representing people with all types of injuries such as:


  • Spine injuries, herniated discs, radiculopathy, paralysis
  • Shoulder injuries, rotator cuff tears, impingement, tendinitis

What Types of Workers’ Comp Benefits Can You Receive?

Medical Expenses

Your benefits should typically cover emergency care, surgery, prescriptions, physical therapy, and more.

Lost Wages

When your doctor approves of time away from your regular work for your injury or occupational disease, you should receive temporary disability payments to cover your lost wages.

Death Benefits

If a person dies because of a workplace injury, spouses and dependent children are usually entitled to compensation.

Permanent Disability

If your injury has left you with permanent impairment, you should get a Notice of Closure with a permanent partial disability award.

Vocational Rehabilitation

When a permanent partial disability prevents you from returning to your regular work, you may be eligible for vocational retraining benefits.
