Comparative Negligence

Oregon recognizes comparative negligence laws. If you bear any fault or responsibility for the accident that resulted in your injuries, it will affect the amount of compensation you are able to recover. For example, if a jury finds that you are 30% responsible for the accident, your award will be reduced by that amount. However, if you are more than 50% responsible for the accident, you will not receive any compensation for your injuries.

Below is a list of arguments a property owner may use to hold you at least partly responsible for your injuries:

  • The condition of the property and its dangers should have been obvious to you
  • Reasonable steps were taken to warn visitors of the dangerous condition
  • You were distracted at the time of the accident (for example, you were using your phone)
  • You were in an area of the property where visitors or customers are not allowed to be
  • Your footwear was dangerous or inappropriate, given the circumstances

There are many potential challenges you may face while pursuing compensation, so it is crucial to hire an experienced attorney as soon as possible to ensure the responsible party is held accountable for your suffering.
