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-five years. Visit our site for answers to your questions, and find out the questions you should be asking. What you should be thinking about?
The Serious Injury Claim
Who pays your medical bills?
Do I need to give a recorded statement?
What should I sign?
Are there deadlines to accept an offer on my case?
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 medical bills?
Our free Book, The Oregon Personal Injury Guide answers many of these questions. Request our free e-book, or give us a call and we can send one out to you without cost or obligation. If you still have questions, use our search function above to find answers to the most common questions we get every day. We are constantly providing updated information to help you know where you stand on your claim.
Wrongful Death Claims
Oregon law allows a representative of a lost loved one to pursue a claim on behalf of 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 attorney who knows about wrongful death claims 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 what it takes to prove your claim. 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? Your initial claim ends with a "Notice of Closure," and we can help you learn what happens at this important stage of your claim.
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. Request our free "e book," or call us to request a free hard copy. Be sure to also check out our free articles and resources our web site that provide to help you understand your claim.
The Social Security Disability Claim
How to apply in the first place is a good start, and knowing what the Social Security people are looking for to 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 show you how to appeal an Unfavorable Decision, and point you to the top attorneys that handle the Federal Court appeals.
