Personal Injury Attorney Serving Tigard

Attorney TigardReporting a Claim

It is important to report an accident and make a claim as soon as it happens. There are statutes of limitations which make claims void after a certain amount of time. You can contact an attorney in Tigard, Oregon to ensure that you meet all such deadlines and to make the process easier for you.

Establishing Negligence

Accidents occur all the time. There are times, however, when an accident may seem as if one person was at fault. Sometimes it will be clear which party is at fault, whereas other times it is not as clear-cut. The earlier a claim is made, the easier it will be to contact witnesses and/or discover video footage of the accident. As time goes by, it is common for the facts to become distorted in one’s mind, a fact which can affect witnesses and all parties involved. If two people have conflicting stories it can make it difficult to establish liability.  For this reason, it is strongly recommended that you consult with a personal injury attorney in the Portland area soon after the accident.

Hiring an Attorney

Insurance companies will fight to ensure that they have to pay as little as possible.  In the vast majority of cases, negotiations with the insurance company and the overall outcome of the case improve simply by hiring an attorney.  However, sometimes finding an attorney can seem like a daunting task.  A quick Google search for “Lawyer Tigard”, for example, results in an overwhelming list of attorneys in the area. We recommend that you look at reviews and testimonials to see what past clients have to say about the services they received, their result and their overall experience.  The important thing to consider is the general tone and trend of the reviews.  A negative review doesn’t necessarily paint a complete picture for numerous reasons, such as the review may be written by an unreasonable client that had unrealistic expectations for their case.  If the majority of the reviews are positive then you can proceed to the next step of contacting the attorney to determine if it is the right fit for you.

Part of the process of selecting the car accident lawyer serving Tigard, OR that is the best fit for you is determining whether the attorney’s area(s) of expertise are in line with those needed for your specific case.  Moreover, you want to make sure that you have a positive relationship with your attorney, that you are treated with respect and that your concerns are being addressed.  Overall, you want to feel like you are a top priority.

My name is Linda and my son in law recommended Ryan Hilts. I did not think I needed a lawyer. My son in law said "If you don't win you don't pay". That made a lot of sense to me. After calling Ryan I realized how comforting it is to have a lawyer. I was in a car accident. The driver was drunk and hit me and took off. A hit and run accident. Ryan told me by Oregon Law I was able to go to the doctors. I was able to get the much needed help. My Chiropractor was amazing. It took time to heal. Ryan was always available and always called me back, when I had any questions. He is a wonderful family man. A man of integrity. He also sent emails and texts to wish our family well on all the Holidays. He went above and beyond what was expected. My case was won without a doubt. I would definitely go back to Ryan for any lawyer needs. He is a good man and you can trust him. Thank you Ryan for everything, words are not enough to express all you did for us.
