According to Oregon’s premises liability laws, property owners have a legal duty to maintain reasonably safe lands. Unfortunately, many property owners shirk their duties out of negligence…or intentionally, often to save money. This exposes visitors in cities such as Portland to potential accidents and injuries related to property defects. If you or a loved one has an injury from an accident that occurred while on someone else’s property, contact Tillmann Law for a review of your options.

After a premises liability accident in Oregon, you will have two years to file a claim against the property owner or another defendant, in most cases. If you miss this statute of limitations, the courts will most likely refuse to hear your case. If you file within your deadline and use a lawyer to help you prove the elements necessary for a successful claim, however, your family could recover the costs of several different damages. A settlement or verdict could reimburse you for medical expenses, lost income, legal fees, disability costs, wrongful death damages, property repairs, pain and suffering, and more.
