Personal injury claims are made when a person suffers injury from another person, object, or company. The injury can be physical, emotional or financial. The only thing is that, it has to be proved. Personal injuries may include: slip and fall injuries, nursing home abuse, car accidents, defective product injury, exposure to toxic materials, medical malpractices, wrongful death (due to negligence), drug injury, dog bite or job injuries.Personal injury claims can be from the person/persons who have actually caused the injury or from the insurance company.
A personal injury claim must address two main issues: liability (the person charged is truly and legally responsible for the damage) and damages (the damages claimed truly reflect the exact extent of the injury or loss suffered). As per Torts Law, the case can be based on any of the three grounds: negligence, strict liability and intentional wrong. In case of injury resulting in death, the family members of the deceased can claim damages.Persons who file an Oregon personal injury claim are eligible to receive compensation for their pain and suffering, loss of income, permanent disability (if any), emotional distress, and any other injuries that have been proved to be a result of the personal injury.
For filing a claim, it is important to prove that: 1) the person/persons/company is legally responsible for the injury and 2) the damages claimed really reflect the real extent of the injury or loss. These two elements, known as liability and damage, are very important for personal injury claims.Personal injury claims are subject to statues of limitations, which mean that the claim must be made within a particular time period from the time of the injury. Statues of limitations differ from state to state. Oregon has its own statues of limitation for personal injury cases.While making personal injury claims, it is better to consult a good attorney who has expertise and experience in dealing with such cases.
