Personal Injury Claims: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

Anyone who has been injured in an accident or because of another party’s liability in Boring knows that personal injury cases can be complex. It can be difficult to know what type of claim you are filing, and how much time you have to file your lawsuit.

Comparative Fault and Your Boring Personal Injury Case

How can comparative fault affect your case? Comparative fault is a defense strategy for the defendant to argue that the plaintiff’s fault also contributed to the accident, and as such, the defendant should not be responsible for paying damages or should be responsible for paying a lesser amount of damages. Every state has its own comparative fault law. Oregon uses a modified comparative fault model which allows a plaintiff to recover damages as long as they are less than 51 percent at fault. In those cases, the plaintiff’s percentage of fault will merely reduce their damages proportionately. However, when a plaintiff is 51 percent or more at fault, Oregon law bars the plaintiff from recovery.
