Wrongful Death Lawyer in Portland, Oregon
If your family member died as a result of another party’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim. As an experienced wrongful death lawyer in Portland, Oregon, I am dedicated to helping you hold a negligent party responsible for the death of your loved one and obtain the compensation that you deserve.
I am prepared to represent you as your lawyer for wrongful death cases, including those that involve:
- Automobile accidents
- Intentional assaults
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Product malfunction
- Workplace accidents
It is important to know that a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within three years of the date of the injury causing the death. Under Oregon law, there are no limits on monetary damages (medical bills, lost wages, and funeral expenses). However, there is a $500,000 limit on non-monetary damages (physical pain prior to death, loss of compensation, and mental anguish). A decedent’s spouse, child, or parent may pursue wrongful death claims on their loved one’s behalf. If none of those parties are alive, a sibling may make the claim. And if no sibling is living, a grandparent or child of a grandparent may qualify.
Obtain justice for your loved one and receive the compensation that you deserve for your loss.
The death of a loved one is truly tragic, especially if that death is caused by the carelessness of another. I understand that this is a difficult time for you and your family, but it is important that you hold the liable party legally and financially responsible. Taking legal action is one way you can put closure to the situation and seek justice for your loved one.
A wrongful death claim can help you cover current and future expenses created by the death. You may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of future earnings, loss of companionship, and emotional suffering. You may also be entitled to punitive damages if the death was caused by malicious intent.
