Automobile accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim. There are probably more automobile accident claims than all other types of personal injury claims combined. If you have been injured or a family member has been killed as a result of the fault or neglect of another, you have a legal right to recover damages for your injuries and losses. The more serious your injuries or the more complicated your case, the more likely an attorney will be of benefit to you. The Attorney knows how insurance companies work and think in resolving automobile claims. He brings that knowledge and experience to bear solely for the benefit of people like you.
Many people forget about other claims related to the fact that an automobile collision has occurred, such as claims for uninsured or underinsured insurance benefits, claims against a wrongdoer’s employer or even, in some cases, claims against automobile manufacturers or highway designers. In many personal injury claims, other issues may arise. Do health care providers, insurance companies, workers compensation insurers, or government entitlement programs such as Medicare or Medicaid have to be repaid for benefits that you may have received? How long should you keep your totaled vehicle or wait to repair any damage after the accident? What settlement documents will you have to sign and are they fair? Insurance companies hire only experienced claims adjusters and lawyers. Is the playing field level if you do not have an experienced professional on your team?
Factories, construction sites and other industrial settings create a high potential for injury and death. Robert Neuberger represents persons injured against wrongdoers who may be responsible for these injuries and wrongful deaths. These cases routinely involve claims against third parties including manufacturers of defective equipment, landowners who provide unsafe premises, contractors, and neglectful equipment operators. Robert Neuberger has represented people who were gravely injured or killed by explosions, bad drivers, electrocution, fires, falling objects, and improperly guarded machines.
Workers compensation does not begin to pay the wages and benefits lost because of an accident. If you are seriously injured on the job or a family member is killed, you should consult with an attorney to determine whether lawful claims exist in addition to workers compensation, including Oregon Employers’ Liability Act claims.
People are injured and killed every day as a result of dangerous conditions in buildings or other manmade hazards. From quadriplegia resulting from a fall into an unguarded hole, to simple slip and falls resulting in broken hips, knees, and ankles, Robert Neuberger has handled many types of dangerous premises cases. Claims may be made against hotels, shopping centers, and other businesses who have a known problem with crime on their property, but fail to protect their customers. Each type of case is unique. Liability may involve building, electrical, or other safety codes, or turn on whether the landowner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition on his premises.
