What Do You Charge?
The Law Office of Clayton H Morrison starts every Oregon Traffic Collision Case by giving our client a free consultation and if we decide to take your case, then we will advance all costs of your case and you don't pay us a penny unless we are successful.
What do you charge to handle an Oregon personal injury claim?
What do you mean when you say that your clients are free to walk away at any time?
Is it true that you will help me with my property damage and PIP medical claim for free?
If you settle your case, our fee is 33%. We only charge 33% for cases that resolve through arbitration. Almost every other lawyer in the state of Oregon will charge 40% for an arbitration. Our fee only increases to 40% if your case goes to a jury trial.
Not only do other Oregon lawyers increase their fees to 40% for arbitration, but many other Oregon lawyers increase their fees just for filing a lawsuit. This puts you at a significant disadvantage. Our experience is that by starting a lawsuit you send a clear message to the insurance company that if they are not fair with you, then you are going to take them to court. It should not cost you more to send this message. Our past results establish that over 90% of the time our clients end up with more by arbitrating their cases. Since our fee does not increase at arbitration, your decision to fight for your rights is a little easier.
All Costs Advanced
Every lawyer is going to charge you an attorney fee plus require you to pay the costs of litigation. Most law firms ask you to pay the costs upfront or as they are incurred. At The Law Office of Clayton H Morrison, we advance all costs and we will only be reimbursed for our costs if we are successful in your case. You pay nothing, an attorney fee or costs unless we actually do something for you. You are free to Walk Away Up Until We Get An Offer On Your Case
The law firm motto is simple:
“There are two people you have to trust: Your doctor and your lawyer. If you don't trust one, it's time to get a new one.
We understand that trust is earned. That is why you are free to fire us at any time up until we get an offer on your case, without owing us a fee. We are not aware of any other law firm in the state of Oregon that makes the same promise to their clients. Other law firms will make you sign a contract obligating you to pay an hourly rate if you fire them – even in cases where you are reasonably dissatisfied with their services. At our office, you are free to walk away at any time up until we obtain an offer on your case.
No Charge for Property Damage and PIP Claims
In Oregon, you can resolve your property damage claim before you resolve your injury claim. We will help you to do this without charging you a fee. This includes total loss claims and diminished value claims. If you are injured in an automobile, truck, bicycle or pedestrian accident, then under Oregon law your automobile insurance company is required to pay your medical expenses and wage loss regardless as to who is at fault for your accident. These medical and wage loss payments are called Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. We will also help you to get your Personal Injury Protection claim started for free.
