Why Do I Need a Workers’ Comp Lawyer in Portland, OR?

Know your rights and when you need someone by your side to fight for them. At the Law Offices of Peter O. Hansen, you always have a knowledgeable attorney to explain the best course of action after you’ve been hurt on the job.

Unfortunately, laws in Portland, Oregon, favor insurers and employers, making it difficult to get the benefits you need to recover properly. But with help from Mr. Hansen, your chances of success dramatically multiply.

The sooner you call a workers’ comp lawyer, the better.  It doesn’t cost you anything in attorneys fees to have a lawyer today on a workers compensation claim.  Because of the way lawyers are paid for these cases, if they don’t get you anything they don’t get paid,  it will cost the same whether you hire the attorney the first day of your injury or after your claim is denied. So it’s best to start working with Mr. Hansen as soon as possible.

If Mr. Hansen gets your denied claim accepted, he is paid by the insurance company, not you. If he can’t reverse the denial, he doesn’t get paid.  Lawyers are limited to 25% of the first $50,000 and 10% for any amount above that if there is a settlement. Finally, if Mr. Hansen gets you an increase in your benefits, he charges only 10% of the increase. The sooner you call the sooner we can help from the start so you have less risk of getting your benefits denied.

Mr. Hansen can also determine if there is a third party at fault for your injury. If this is the case, you may sue for additional damages in real court for factors like pain, suffering, and interference of non-work-related activities. These cases need to be investigated and evidence preserved as soon as possible. So schedule your free consultation to get started on your case.
