Why a Lawyer Is Necessary to Filing a Claim

The Gatti Law Firm

Imagine going through a situation in which you suffered an injury, you know someone else was negligent and responsible for the damages, yet you felt there was nothing you can do. This is the unfortunate reality for many of those affected by a car accident.

The fact is, many of these people are just confused following the situation and unsure of what comes next in the process. This is why it becomes increasingly important to hire a legal professional who can help you understand what comes next and guide you to filing a claim.

Deadlines and Paperwork

Many individuals don’t recognize the need of filing the necessary paperwork and documentation in a timely manner. In Oregon, there is a two-year statute of limitation in which the injured must file a lawsuit against the negligent party.

If a lawsuit is not filed within the time period allotted by state law, the injured individual may forfeit their rights to seek compensation. This makes it increasingly important to have legal representation when going through the process.

Protecting Your Rights

In matters of personal injury, individuals are facing large insurance companies who are focused on their own profits and protecting themselves from having to pay out too much to injured parties. This means they are using tactics they feel can limit their own liability.

Having a lawyer puts you in a more favorable position to protect your rights from these large corporations. You can better represent your case in a manner that presents your needs for compensation and for justice.

At The Gatti Law Firm, our Oregon car accident lawyers are dedicated to your rights and best interests. We work hard to guide you throughout the entire process so you are aware of your rights and what comes next.
