The Di Bartolomeo Law Office has been helping families in Western Oregon and Washington with wrongful death, auto injury, Oregon Workers' Compensation, and Social Security Disability claims for over twenty years.  Visit our site to get the answers to your questions, and find out which questions you should be asking.  What you should be thinking about:

The Serious Injury Claim

Who pays your medical bills?

Who should I talk to, and what should I sign?

What about time off from work?

And how do I get the car fixed, or can it be fixed?

What if there is not enough insurance to pay my bills?

Our free Book, The Oregon Personal Injury Guide answers many of these questions.  Download the book, or give us a call and we can send one out to you without cost or obligation.  If you still have questions, go to our free articles and blog entries.  We are constantly providing updated information to help you know where you stand on your claim.

Wrongful Death Claims

Oregon law allows a representative for the lost loved one or family member to pursue a claim on behalf of the estate, and for the surviving beneficiaries.  This is obviously a difficult time for family members, but there are often immediate concerns with the potential claim.  If you suspect that a family member or loved one died as a result of someone else's carelessness, you should meet with an Oregon Wrongful Death attorney to learn your options.  We have handled several wrongful death cases, and can help you understand the process, and where you stand.

The Oregon Workers' Compensation Claim

You need to know how claim denials are appealed, and how a claim is proven. If you have an accepted claim, is the insurer accepting responsibility for all your medical problems, or only some of them?  Is the claim "classified" correctly, and what can you do about it?  A lot happens when you receive a Notice of Closure, and it's good to know what the claim closure means, and your options.

These and many other questions are addressed in our free book, Navigating The Workers' Compensation Maze.  This book explains this complex system in easy to understand terms.  Download the "e book," or call us to request a free hard copy.  Be sure to also check out our free articles and blog entries that provide free and useful information to help you understand your claim.

The Social Security Disability Claim

How to apply in the first place is a good start, and what information is going to help the Social Security people decide the claim is important too. 

How should you answer questions on all the forms? 

Should you discuss your claim with the doctor, and if so, what are the best questions? 

What is the appeal process like, and what are the time limits? 

We also think you need to know about what happens at the hearing, and how to read through a Judge's Decision.  We can also give you information on appealing the Unfavorable Decision, and point you to the top attorneys that handle the Federal Court appeals.
