The system is lopsided in favor of insurance companies. If you’ve been hurt because of another’s carelessness, we can help level your playing field. We will stand against them and fight for you. We know their weaknesses from an insider’s vantage point. They have in-house lawyers, working full-time against injury victims like you; which is why you need someone on your side.

Insurance companies hire experts to say accident victims simply did not get hurt at all; or if they did, they recovered in nine weeks.

Imagine that: As different as we are as individual human beings, hired insurance defense experts can lump us all into a nine-week recovery box. Meanwhile, insurance companies avoid responsibility for their careless people. We have won as lead counsel before the Oregon Supreme Court, a victory which changed Oregon law. We have taken on some of the world’s most powerful corporations and won millions of dollars for our injured clients. We have helped all kinds of injury victims prevail. We can help you, too! Put our experience on your side. Don’t be a victim twice!

Medford Personal Injury


Accident victims suddenly find themselves in a position of losing their job, their homes, their very way of life. This becomes their new reality, but insurance companies and their lawyers are skilled at painting such victims as “faking it” or “milking the system.” They’ve polluted our jury pools. And spilled coffee cases don’t help any, serving only to reinforce the belief that our system is broken. Ask anyone, and most hold negative views of anyone “suing,” unless the wrong-doer is some kind of villain (e.g., drunk drivers, child molesters, road-ragers).

But most injuries are not caused by villains. Even worse, insurance companies in Oregon get to hide behind their bad drivers: By law, a jury is barred from knowing that the bad actor even had insurance. A jury doesn’t get to know if it’s the elderly man who sent a teenager to the hospital with broken bones who’ll pay the damages, or if there’s insurance in the picture.

Most accident victims entering our “civil system” of justice are met by very rude and crafty insurance defense lawyers, who during depositions call them fat or otherwise verbally attack them, or smirk when they can’t hold back emotions when talking about how the accident wrecked parts of their lives. Many who work in insurance dehumanize injury victims, presumably so they can sleep at night.

We work closely with all health care insurances, Medicare, Medicaid, and OHP, so that when you leave our office, the check in your hand is a “net check” with no lurking liens or bills left out there unpaid. From start to finish, we help you get to the best possible result.

We are experienced Medford Personal Injury Attorneys who can help you avoid a toxic legal environment. We work with the bad driver’s insurance to get you a fair and just settlement well short of trial. We help you avoid the depositions, abuse, delayed justice, forced medical exams, and the courthouse. Put our experience on your side. Don’t be a victim twice.”
