Personal Injury Practice Areas: Auto Accidents
If you have been hurt in a car accident, you need a lawyer who specializes in personal injury and accident cases. Contact Shulman DuBois about how to handle your car accident case and for legal representation. This is one of our most specialized personal injury practice areas.
Bus accidents occur in an instant. Bus collisions threaten the lives and wellbeing of occupants, which often include young children. But these accidents also endanger other motorists on the road, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
Every year in the United States, trucks are involved in 5,000 deaths, 100,000 serious injuries, and 500,000 accidents. Trucking accidents are much more likely to cause serious injury or death due to the difference in size and weight between a truck and a car.
Over half of all drivers arrested for drunk driving are repeat offenders. Our drunk driving injury attorneys at Shulman DuBois LLC help people who have been injured (or killed) due to the negligence of others.
It only takes one moment of distracted driving for a serious car accident to take place. Our Portland personal injury lawyers protect the rights of injured victims and family members of those killed in car accidents caused by another’s carelessness in distracted driving accidents.
Fatality rates for motorcyclists are far higher than the fatality rate for passenger car occupants. At Shulman DuBois, LLC, our motorcycle injury lawyer are dedicated to protecting the rights of those injured by another’s negligence, and we understand how life-changing motorcycle accidents can be.
According to Oregon State Law ( ORS 811.705), in the case of an auto accident where one or more parties is injured, the party that is responsible for causing the injuries is required to immediately stop and remain at the scene. Our hit and run accident attorneys will make sure that person is held accountable if they fail to perform this duty.
Almost 85 percent of all fatal rollover accidents involve a single-vehicle crash. At Shulman DuBois LLC, our SUV rollover accident lawyers make it a priority to preserve evidence from the scene of an accident to ensure that you don’t lose any leverage in your case.
Our personal injury practice areas have to include bicycle accidents – bike accidents are frequent in a bike city like Portland, Oregon. And even though cyclists are usually protected under the “vulnerable user” laws, you may need professional help to win your case.
Pedestrians are at greatest risk of serious injury and death. Knowledgeable and experienced attorneys Joshua Shulman and Sean DuBois can help you through the process if you have been hurt in an accident, and get you the money you deserve to pay your medical bills.
Personal Injury Practice Areas: Other Injuries and Losses
Family members affected by a wrongful death accident have legal rights. The wrongful death lawyers at Shulman DuBois LLC are committed to protecting the rights of family members who have lost a loved one.
Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of commercial products have a responsibility to ensure that any product used by consumers is reasonably safe for its intended use. When they make or sell unsafe products, people can be seriously injured.
Personal injury practice areas usually include premises liability accidents, which can be difficult to prove. Our premises liability attorneys can help advise you about your legal rights for injuries sustained in a personal injury case.
When someone suffers a catastrophic or serious injury in an accident, the injury may leave them disabled for the rest of their life. If you have been seriously injured because of someone else’s wrongdoing, call the catastrophic injury accident lawyers at Shulman DuBois LLC to ensure you receive enough compensation to cover future expenses.
When a construction worker suffers a serious injury, they may not be able to work for a long time, if ever again. It’s important for victims of a serious accident to get a construction accident lawyer on their side to get fair compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and loss of family services.
A personal injury is any injury caused by another person’s careless behavior. From distracted driving to defective products, there are many uncertainties after an accident. Our personal injury attorneys are here to help during this challenging time.
As parents, we often depend on caregivers, other adults and companies to provide services and products that will offer safety and security to our children. Unfortunately, in some cases, childhood injuries can be catastrophic and even result in death.
A brain injury is often catastrophic and victims may sometimes never fully recover. When someone’s negligence results in another person suffering a serious injury, the victim has the right to seek compensation for care after the brain injury accident.
Burn injuries can range from minor to serious, and can leave victims with scarring and disfigurement. If a burn injury accident was caused by another person’s wrongdoing, the victim may get compensation for expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
After a loved one dies, we depend on funeral homes to take care of arranging the bodies, either by cremation or by burial, for their final resting place. But when they do not do their duty, our Portland funeral home abuse attorneys will hold the funeral homes or mortuaries accountable.
Personal Injury Practice Areas: Assaults
Animal attacks can occur in almost any situation. You could be bitten by an animal at the zoo, while walking down your neighborhood street, when visiting a friend or neighbor, or even in the home of a close family member. If you are injured, we can help make sure your bills and expenses are paid by the responsible party.
The dog bite laws in Oregon are very complicated. If a pet attacks, it is usually because the pet was mistreated, was brought up wrong, was trained to be aggressive, or was not properly controlled. The law recognizes that a dog bite is often the fault of the dog’s owner, and we can hold them accountable for you.
If you have been a victim of an intentional assault, your injuries may be physical, financial, psychological, social or all of them. It is extremely traumatic to be a victim of an intentional assault, but we can help you get treatment, get compensation, and hopefully get justice through the civil litigation process.
Sexual assault is any type of sexual activity that you do not want and you do not agree to. Any form of sexual activity that forces you to participate in unwanted sexual contact or attention is sexual assault.
