Getting seriously injured while working in Oregon can be made unintentionally tougher by the complexity of our federal and state laws and programs. Without help from those with experience and knowledge of the system here in Oregon, an injured worker and their families members can suffer unduly, be denied necessary medical care or compensation for their injuries.
When injured, the last thing you need is confusion or frustration
Part of the cause of confusion and frustrating denials, some that you only learn about after it is too late, is that like our state and federal income taxes, while the system appears to be set up for an individual to interface with the government, the truth is with filling out the forms, and meeting all the requirements, the potential pitfalls make it far too complex today to be a fair and level playing field for an unassisted individual. The system has become so complex that an injured person must either make a choice for representation form a legal professional who understands the pitfalls, or take their chances going it alone.
You can afford professional legal help - no out of pocket costs
Many injured workers and their families don’t have a cent to spare and feel hiring an experienced attorney is out of the question. There is one good piece of news in a work-related injury, and that is that the government has created a way for injured workers to have legal assistance and representation without the need to pay an attorney out of pocket. At our offices there will be no charge you for meetings, for learning about your case and possible problems, or to even represent you. Your attorney will only be paid if through his work he brings you money that you would have otherwise not received. In this way an injured worker and his family can be helped by a top notch professional but do not need to find the money to make it happen. Just call us and we will go to work protecting your rights and helping you get financially compensated for your injuries.
