We at James F. O’Rourke, Jr. and Associates know how to assert and protect our clients’ rights under the various types of insurance policies which come into play in personal injury cases.
Insurance policies are contracts. Both the insurance company and the insured have duties under the contract. If the insured does not follow the terms of the insurance contract, the insurance company does not have to pay. The insurance companies must follow the terms of the contract as well.
The Oregon State Legislature has set out rules governing the insurance business and the certain important aspects of the claim recovery process. Knowledge of these rules is very important as we work to get the most money possible for our injured clients. We know how to use these rules to protect our clients and further their interests in the claim recovery process. We know how to get the insurance companies to follow the rules.

Oregon Personal Injury Lawyers, and particularly those practicing in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington Counties are seeing more injuries caused by attacks by exotic and dangerous pets. Most of these claims require us to work with the pet owners’ homeowners and umbrella insurance policies and the client’s health and sometimes workmens compensation insurance carriers.
Similarly, Oregon Personal Injury Attorneys who are representing persons injured on the residential or commercial property of a person or business deal with homeowners or commercial insurance carriers as well as the clients health and sometimes workmens compensation insurance carriers.
