When you've been injured in an accident due to someone else's negligence, that negligent act is known as a tort or a civil "wrong" that results in legal liability for the negligent party. Torts can be caused by either negligent or intentional acts and cover a wide variety of incidents including auto accidents, false imprisonment, invasion of privacy, and professional malpractice. When people have been injured or harmed as a result of these incidents, they can be left feeling overwhelmed as they try to deal with insurance claims, report filing, document gathering, and other bureaucratic proceedings. At the same time, they're trying to recover from devastating emotional and physical injuries that are difficult enough to deal with without the added legal complexities of an injury claim.
That's why it can be so crucial to have an experienced personal injury attorney working for you to help you sort through all of the details of your accident so you can pursue the compensation you deserve to help you recover. Without an experienced attorney, individuals often make mistakes that can diminish the value of their claim, resulting in little compensation or a complete case dismissal. That's why Lyndon Ruhnke P.C. has been working with clients across Northern Oregon for nearly 20 years to help them seek adequate compensation for their injuries so they can recover and get their life back on track.
