What Constitutes a PI Case in Portland, OR?

Personal Injuries exist in many forms, and can arise out of different situations, but there are several elements frequent to all personal injuries in Oregon

If you have sustained an injury from an automobile accident, slip and fall, or animal attack in Portland, it is essential that you understand what rights you have and how your personal injury claim will likely work.

Common Elements of a Personal Injury Claim in Oregon

In the majority of Personal Injury cases, the victim must establish four elements to have a valid claim in Portland. The four general elements that the injured party must establish in order to state a valid Personal Injury claim are: 1) that the injuring party (the defendant) was negligent, 2) that the cause of the accident was the negligence, 3) that the defendant's negligent actions caused the injuries, and 4) that the lawsuit was brought timely and within the statute of limitations.

It is necessary that you do not sit on your rights, and delay the filing of your case. In Oregon, you must file your case within a specific amount of time, before the statute of limitations runs out. If you fail to do this, you could lose any chance at recovery that you may once have had.

Life in Portland

Portland may be the 3rd most populous city in the Pacific Northwest but it's one of the most popular. Known as one of the greenest cities in the world, Portland has used city planning and public transportation to lessen residents' impact on their surrounding environment. In fact, Portland has been named the second most eco-friendly place behind Reykjavik, Iceland by Grist Magazine, and in top 10 greenest cities by Move, Inc.

P-town residents live among some of the most innovative microbreweries and distilleries. Widmer Brothers, Henry Weinhard, and Michael "Beerhunter" Jackson even dubbed Portland beer capital of the world. Portland Mayor Tom Potter nicknamed the city "Beertown."

Most people probably know Portland as the location of the Nike Headquarters (known as the Nike Campus) but the city also plays host to KEEN, Adidas, Columbia Sportsware, U.S. Bank, Oregon Steel Mills, Willamette Industries, and Louisiana-Pacific. Since the city is known as a "green city" you won't be too surprised to find there are a number of alternative energy companies there like Vestas Wind Systems.

Portland is unique in that the city hosts the worlds largest, and even legally sanctioned in Portland court, naked bike ride. The annual World Naked Bike Ride began in 1999 with less than seven participants but has grown to over 13,000. Another legal oddity you may not know is that there are very strong speech protections in the Oregon constitution that extend to full nudity and lap dances in strip clubs. Not by coincidence, Portland has more strip clubs per capita than Las Vegas or San Francisco.
