Workers’ Compenstation

Dedicated, Client-Driven Advocacy

I represent workers in Oregon that have been injured on the job. If you were injured at work, then you need a lawyer. Your employer will have an insurance company and that company will be represented by lawyers. Their goal will be to resolve your case as quickly and inexpensively as possible and it will be at your expense. Without a lawyer you will be severely disadvantaged during your claim and this may cost you money.

I am a passionate advocate and I have focused my practice on fighting for my clients both in and out of the courtroom. I understand the intricacies of Workers’ Compensation law and I strive to help each of my clients understand it as well. It is my goal to educate you on your rights and your legal options, and then work to achieve whatever goal is best for you. If you have been injured at work you should contact me immediately for a free consultation.

The purpose of Oregon’s Workers’ Compensation system is to provide benefits and compensation for employees injured at work. Most often these benefits are in the form of lost wages and coverage for medical expenses. Employers in Oregon are required to carry Workers’ Compensation insurance either through a private insurance company or show that they are self-insured. All employers in Oregon are required to pay into a state workers’ compensation fund. Oregon is a “no-fault” state, meaning no matter who caused the injury, workers injured on the job are covered.

In going forward you need to keep in mind the following facts in mind:

  1. You have a limited time to file your claim so you should file your claim ASAP.
  2. You will not have to pay your lawyer unless your lawyer earns a money award for you.
  3. Even if your injury was YOUR FAULT, you will still be covered and receive benefits.
  4. I will provide you with a free first consultation and advise you on your rights and options.
