Possible Compensatory Damages for Personal Injury Victims in Oregon

Personal injury victims in Oregon may be entitled to compensatory damages, which aim to compensate them for the harm they have suffered due to another party’s negligence. Compensatory damages are typically categorized into two main types: economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for past and future medical costs, including hospital bills, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation, and therapy.
  • Lost Wages: Reimbursement for income lost due to the inability to work during recovery. This includes both past and future lost earnings.
  • Property Damage: Compensation for damage to personal property caused by the incident, such as a vehicle in a car accident.

Non-Economic Damages:

  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical pain, emotional distress, and overall suffering experienced as a result of the injury.
  • Mental Anguish: Damages for emotional trauma or psychological distress caused by the incident.
  • Loss of Consortium: Compensation for the negative impact the injuries may have on the injured party’s relationship with their spouse.
  • Disfigurement or Scarring: Compensation for any permanent physical disfigurement or scarring resulting from the injury.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Damages for the loss of ability to enjoy activities or life as it was before the injury.
  • Punitive Damages: In rare cases, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the at-fault party for particularly egregious or intentional misconduct. Oregon law places limits on punitive damages.

Specific damages available and their calculation may vary based on the unique circumstances of each case. Consulting with our experienced team at Goldberg & Loren can help evaluate the damages applicable to your situation and guide you through the process of seeking fair compensation.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases in  Oregon

In Oregon, the Statute of Limitations for personal injury cases is generally two years from the date of the injury or the date when the injury was discovered or reasonably should have been discovered. This means that individuals have a two-year window to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for their injuries.

There are exceptions and variations to this general rule based on the specific circumstances of the case. For instance, if the personal injury claim involves a government entity, there may be shorter notice requirements, and the timeline for filing a lawsuit could be different.

Failing to file a lawsuit within the applicable Statute of Limitations may result in the loss of the right to pursue legal action. Consult with our experienced personal injury lawyers in Oregon to help you understand the specific deadlines relevant to your case.

Why Should I Get a Personal Injury Attorney For My Case?


Many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only receive payment if you win your case. Initial consultations are often free.

Oregon follows a modified comparative negligence system. As long as you are not more than 50% at fault, you can still pursue a claim, but your compensation may be reduced proportionately.

Seek medical attention, document the scene, gather witness information, report the incident, and consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

The timeline varies, but factors include the complexity of the case, the extent of injuries, and whether a settlement is reached or litigation is required.
