Personal injury caused by an Oregon government entity or employee.
If I am hurt by a government employee or entity, is my claim any different?
Yes. When you are injured due to the negligence of an Oregon government employee, there are a different set of rules regarding your personal injury claim.
These rules are all set up to benefit the government and if you are not careful, you cannot bring a persona injury claim against the government.
How much time do I have to bring an Oregon personal injury claim against the government?
When you bring a claim against an Oregon governmental body, you must send a tort claim notice within six months of the date of the accident.
This notice must be sent to the correct agency and must notify them of the specifics of your claim.
If you do not send this notice, you likely will not be able to make a personal injury claim.
When should I contact an Oregon personal injury lawyer?
If you are injured due to the negligence of an Oregon governmental agency, contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
If you don't timely preserve your right to make your personal injury claim, you will get nothing.
