What happens after a dog bite in Oregon?

What really happens when a dog bites, and who is affected? While the owner may be feeling upset that his or her pet could be in danger, if you've been bitten or your child has been injured by a dog, it's important that the owner is held liable for the actions of the animal. By law, owners are responsible for any injuries their pets cause, except in some very specific circumstances.

Bicyclist injured in collision with motorcyclist

When you're riding a bike, you have to be aware of your surroundings. Normally, you cross in a crosswalk and wait for traffic to pass. Sometimes, speeding traffic may come up on you faster than expected, or oncoming traffic may not yield to you. In those cases, you may be able to make a claim if you're hit. That might be what happens in this case involving a bicyclist who was hit by a motorcyclist.

You can make a claim after you're hurt in a pedestrian accident

There are close to 5,000 people killed every year in motor-vehicle related accidents throughout the United States. Another 72,000 pedestrians are injured when they're hit by cars or trucks. Many of these accidents are the fault of drivers who aren't paying attention, are intoxicated, or are disobeying traffic laws.

What claims can be made after a car accident?

If you're in a car accident, there's a good chance that you've gotten hurt and now have to deal with medical bills and other financial losses. When you're ready to make a claim, it's wise to make sure any settlement offers you receive are fair compensation for the medical care and financial losses you have to deal with.
