About Johnston Law Firm


Representing injured Victims In Wilsonville and Throughout All Of Oregon

Each year, hundreds of people are hurt in Wilsonville and surrounding areas in accidents. These are unintentional events, but the effects are just the same: serious, sometimes disabling, injuries to innocent people. If you’ve been injured in an accident, we want to talk to you. Oregon law allows victims to seek compensation following a car wreck or other accident. However, you will benefit from the help of a seasoned Wilsonville personal injury lawyer at Johnston Law Firm.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Accidents are typically caused by a person failing to use necessary care. We call this negligence under Oregon law. When someone does not use the care we expect reasonable people to use in a similar situation, then they are liable and can be sued.

At Johnston Law Firm, our team has helped people injured in all sorts of accidents, such as:

  • Motor vehicle collisions where a driver fails to operate the vehicle carefully due to distraction, fatigue, drugs, or carelessness;
  • Premises liability accidents when visitors are hurt by defects on the property;
  • Slip and falls caused by some hazard underfoot, like snow, ice, trash, loose tiles, or uneven floorboards;
  • Defective products which explode or fail to work properly, injuring consumers in the process;
  • Medical malpractice cases, where a medical professional does not use sufficient skill and injures someone by error;
  • Wrongful death, when a loved one dies in an accident.

Wilsonville Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

The days after an accident are confusing for many people. Many people call our office with questions like the ones reproduced below.

Overview of the Personal Injury Process

Negligence is difficult to prove. We rely on all sorts of evidence to establish that the person who hurt you did not act with sufficient care. Under Oregon law, you can also be accused of negligence. If so, you might receive less in compensation—or be prohibited from suing altogether.

A personal injury claim has many elements, and Johnston Law Firm is familiar with all of them:

  • Damages. These are financial and non-financial losses caused by an accident, such as medical bills, lost income, property damage, pain, suffering, emotional distress, and others.
  • Complaint. You file a lawsuit in court requesting compensation. The defendant has a chance to respond.
  • Mediation. Many cases are settled without the need for trial. Mediation is a process involving a neutral third person who helps two sides listen to each other and find common ground.
  • Settlement. You can agree to a certain amount of money in a settlement. You also waive the ability to sue the defendant again for this same accident.
  • Discovery. This is the investigation phase in litigation. You can request documents or testimony for use in trial.
  • Judgment. If your case goes to trial, a judge will hand down a judgment in your favor or the defendant’s.

Your Voice in the Insurance Claims Process

Insurance companies have grown over the decades by employing questionable tactics over the decades to bolster their bottom line. Accident victims might struggle to get their complaints taken seriously. Some insurers will only offer a tiny amount of compensation for what are serious, painful injuries.

Trying to negotiate your own settlement might sound like a good idea in theory, but it rarely is. Many insurers outright reject claims or make low offers. You might have no idea what steps to take next following a denial.

At Johnston Law Firm, we have the necessary experience to fight back. Often, we can present a claim in such a way that there is no room for the insurer to deny it or minimize your suffering. Consequently, we can obtain fair compensation for your injuries.
