Personal Injury Claims: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

What are the Elements of a Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury law is complicated. Recovering full and fair financial relief through a legal claim requires establishing all of the required elements. To bring a successful personal injury claim in Astoria, OR, you should be prepared to prove:

  • Duty of Care: The first step of proving liability in a personal injury claim in Oregon is establishing the requisite duty of care. In effect, this means that you need to assert that standard of care by which the defendant(s) should have abided under the law. 
  • Breach of Duty (Negligence): A breach of duty of care occurs when a party negligently fails to live up to the standard of care. An example would be a driver who causes an accident in Astoria by running a red light. Another example would be a property owner failing to repair a broken floor board, thereby contributing to a serious slip and fall accident. 
  • Causation: To establish personal injury liability in Oregon, there must be a causal link between the defendant’s negligence (improper actions or inactions) and the victim’s injuries. Without causation, there is no liability. 
  • Damages: Finally, you must prove damages as part of the personal injury claims process. Our Astoria, OR personal injury lawyer can help you seek compensation for the maximum amount, including for property damage, medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning power, pain and suffering, long-term disability, permanent disfigurement, and wrongful death.
