Automobile Insurance

The state of Oregon requires vehicle owners to carry car insurance to cover the costs of property damage and medical expenses in case of an accident. It is mandatory that drivers provide insurance coverage when renewing vehicle registration and during the random state-issued inspections that are sometimes conducted on vehicle owners throughout Oregon. It is best to speak with an injury attorney following an accident and before giving information to the other party's insurance company. This will ensure that your rights remain protected and you stand the best chances of recieving the compensation you need to make as full a recovery as possible after any type of accident.

Car accident victims should contact a personal injury lawyer for guidance on the proper actions to take after an accident, as insurance adjustors are notorious for their attempts to take advantage of their customers naivete in matters of injury and property damage. Our firm has a record of success in helping clients receive maximum compensation for their property damage, injuries and their pain and suffering - and we are ready to put our skills and experience to work for you as well.

Insurance Coverage for Car Accidents

Minimum coverage required for automobile owners for bodily injury and property damage liability is as follows:

  • $25,000 per person
  • $50,000 per crash for bodily injury to others
  • $20,000 per crash for damages to property of others

Insurance companies are often difficult when it comes to paying for damages even if the cause of the accident is clear and the at-fault driver has already been identified. An aggressive car accident attorney knows how to get results for clients when dealing with insurance companies and insurance adjusters. The calculation of the value of injuries using set formulas is part of the insurance process, but insurance adjusters usually downplay the value with the intention of a quick settlement for a smaller amount of money.

For major injuries requiring extensive medical treatment, the insurance compensation may be insufficient for the victim, especially when considering the lost income a victim will feel from being unable to work during their recovery period. Before accepting an insurance settlement offer, speak with a competent injury attorney from our firm regarding your claim.
