motor vehicle accidentsA motor vehicle accident can rob you of your health, career and future. If your injuries are severe, you might have to fight for the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid paying for your care. As an injury victim, you are in more danger than you realize.

The Inner Workings of the Insurance Business

Car, truck and motorcycle accidents represent a huge area of risk for insurance companies. The way they approach motor vehicle accident cases would come as a surprise to most of their customers. We know how they will view your case for one simple reason: Sarah Nelson spent nearly ten years as in-house defense counsel for one of the largest insurance companies in the nation. That experience helps us protect your rights. It helps us get you the compensation you deserve through negotiation or trial. It also helps us prepare you for the tricks and tactics the insurance company will use to try to limit your recovery.

Finding the Right Lawyer for Your Traffic Accident Case

The background and experience of the attorney you choose can have a significant impact on the results you get. If you want maximum compensation, you need someone who can beat the insurance companies at their own game. You need an attorney who has handled many other motor vehicle accidents and knows how to put you in the best position to move forward with your life.

The experience of the attorney you choose is vital. But it is also important to choose someone you are comfortable with. Few things are as personal as your medical condition. Depending on your circumstances, it may be easier for you to work with a female attorney. Some of our female clients have suffered injuries that are better understood and dealt with by another woman. As one of the most experienced personal injury lawyers in the Portland area, Sarah Nelson knows how to protect you and make the legal process as stress-free as possible.

Car Accidents

Unfortunately, most of us will experience a car accident at some point during our driving years. They can be scary and painful, and oftentimes are the fault of another driver. Getting the compensation you deserve can be stressful and complicated. Our office will gather all the required evidence, witness accounts, and police records you need to prove your case.

Bicycle Accidents

Oregon is one of the most bicycle-friendly states in the country. That means there are more bikes sharing the road with motor vehicles than is standard, and unfortunately that increases the number of accidents involving bicycles. If you’ve been involved in an accident while on a bike you may be facing serious injuries. We can help you get the compensation you need.

Truck Accidents

Truck accidents tend to be especially severe due to the size and momentum of 18-wheelers and semis. Truck drivers and the companies that employ them are subject to more stringent laws and regulations than typical motorists. We can use those regulations to recover the compensation you deserve in the event you are a victim of a truck accident.
