Accidents can disrupt your life. It can be helpful to know all available legal options and the process to obtain justice and compensation for your injury.

What Is the Injury Law in Oregon?
Under Oregon law, personal injury refers to any physical, emotional, or psychological harm suffered by an individual due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another party.
A personal injury case in Oregon involves taking steps to obtain compensation for injuries and losses resulting from accidents such as car crashes, slip and falls, truck accidents, and more.
These claims aim to hold the responsible party accountable and obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages incurred by the injured individual.
Time Limit on Personal Injury Claims
In Oregon, you have two years from the date of the injury or from when you discovered the injury to initiate a lawsuit. However, it’s important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney to be aware of any specific exceptions or circumstances that might affect your case’s deadline.
Missing this time limit can result in the loss of your right to recover compensation, so it’s important to take prompt action.
