Law Firm Overview FREE CONSULTATIONAt the law office of Attorney Michael A. Colbach, we offer free consultations, and do not charge clients for recovering their past medical expenses. Filing a lawsuit, paying court costs and expert witness fees can be very expensive. Every year we spend thousands of dollars in litigation costs.
Most personal injury cases settle before trial, but you want to maximize your settlement and that might mean having to go to trial for a fair settlement offer. If you hire an Oregon personal injury attorney who has little trial experience, oftentimes they will be afraid to go to trial. Insurance companies know who these lawyers are, and they usually offer them less than the case is worth. Our law firms have 15 years of courtroom experience and we have tried well over 100 cases.
Verdicts like these examples do not come easy and it took us over 15 years of trying cases and over 100 jury trials before we have the skills to get big verdicts for our clients. Most Oregon personal injury attorneys rarely, if ever, try cases. Our law firm believes that these attorneys do a great disservice to their clients and cost their clients millions of dollars by settling cases that should go to trial. Before you hire a lawyer, make sure that they are actively trying cases and have had a number of six figure verdicts.
Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description
- Personal Injury
Personal injury law is not simple or easy and requires many years of experience and hard work to become good at it. It is very, very hard for an attorney to do many different kinds of law well. If you or a loved one has a serious Oregon personal injury case, you need an Oregon personal injury attorney who tries cases and is good at it. Our law firms have tried over 125 jury trials and we have excellent results.
- Motorcycle Accidents
If you've been injured in a motorcycle accident, we strongly encourage you to contact an Oregon motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible. We know the majority of motorcyclists are themselves very safe, aware operators, because they have to be. Yet Motorcyclists often encounter negative attitudes about riding motorcycles and insurance companies use this to try and pressure motorcyclists into accepting unfair settlements.
- Truck Accidents
Truck accidents are often both more severe and also more complex legally then most car accidents. A car accident involving a semi truck and tractor trailer often causes more severe injuries to the passengers of the cars than a car vs. car accident. In addition, car accidents involving large semi truck tractor trailers also too frequently result in death.
- Boating Accidents
Every year Oregon recreational boaters and commercial fisherman suffer serious injuries in Oregon boating accidents. Proving who is at fault in an Oregon boating accident is not as easy or as obvious as a car accident. There are a number of safe boating rules that if not followed can result in boating accidents and injuries.
- Bus Accidents
Buses are part of our daily life, from the time we start school to the time we begin commuting to our jobs. Of course, it is not uncommon that buses are involved in minor and serious accidents on our roads. You may be a passenger in a bus involved in an accident, or a bicycle or pedestrian hit by a bus, or a car, truck or motorcycle involved in an accident with a bus.
- Car Accidents
If you have been seriously injured in an Oregon auto accident, it is important you talk to a personal injury lawyer who is an experienced Oregon auto accident attorney as soon as possible. You may have questions about your auto insurance policy and the coverageís that you have such as personal injury protection (pip), wage loss, missed time from work, uninsured driver questions, or even problems with medical bills that you are receiving due to your accident.
- Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Even if you are on a bicycle or a pedestrian, your personal injury protection from your auto insurance policy should pay your medical expenses if you are struck by a motor vehicle. If you donít have auto and health insurance, then the other driverís insurance should pay your medical bills.
- Product Liability
Product liability is the branch of law which holds manufacturers of goods responsible for defective or dangerous products. Like personal injury law, a good product liability attorney must be skilled in the courtroom and an experienced trial lawyer. Most often, product liability cases are associated with negligence on the part of the manufacturer.
- Brain Injury
If you suffered a brain injury do to the fault of someone else, you need to make sure you are fairly compensated or you or our family could suffer financially for years to come. Brain injuries can sometimes be hard to prove. You may look and act fairly normal, but those around you can see the difference.
