Motorcycle Wrongful Death Lawsuits in Oregon

Losing a loved one in a motorcycle accident is emotionally and often financially devastating. People who lose a loved one in a preventable motorcycle accident are dealing with a deep emotional loss that can be made worse if you depended on the loved one for your financial support.

If you lose your loved one in an Oregon motorcycle accident, you may be eligible for compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit. Possible compensation can include:

  • Funeral and burial costs: If you lost a loved one in the prime of their life, they could have funeral costs that you were not prepared to pay. Even the least expensive options can cost you thousands of dollars. A wrongful death lawsuit can pay for reasonable funeral and burial expenses.
  • Medical costs: Sometimes the motorcycle accident victim does not die immediately. The victim may be alive on expensive life support equipment for days or weeks. After death, the person’s estate could owe tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars of hospital bills and other medical expenses. Insurance can cover some of this, but the estate could be still on the hook for much of the expense. The wrongful death action if successful can pay for most of these expenses.
  • Loss of wages, financial support and earning capacity: You may have relied entirely on your loved one’s income to pay your bills. A wrongful death lawsuit can help you to get compensation to make up for the many financial burdens you now face. You can get money for the loss of income, as well as compensation he would have received in the future. Proving future income loss can be challenging, but a skilled Portland wrongful death attorney can get you the money you deserve.
  • Loss of companionship: Some parts of your loved one’s death cannot be quantified. The money will never bring back the one you lost. It is hard to put a price on the deceased’s affection and company, but a wrongful death lawsuit can help you to recover some compensation for this vital, missing part of your life.

You Always Have Our Appreciation
We cannot tell you how important it was to my family to receive the money you got us. My family and I were extremely happy when you told us how you pushed the insurance company to settle for the whole amount that they can be sued for. Your law firm did all this and we didn’t even have to go to court. You always have our appreciation.

He Obtained a Settlement Much Higher Than I Had Dared To Hope For
Attorney Bart Herron was referred to me by a friend and co-worker who had been previously helped by Mr. Herron. He took my case too and obtained a settlement much higher than I had dared to hope for. I recommend him highly.
Thanks to you for your hard efforts and support, you gave me the drive to fight. I actually miss you guys. We think about you often. Even when things were tough you always made me smile. I can never thank you enough.

Honest, Intelligent and Strong Attorney
I was badly injured in an auto accident. Bartley Herron persuaded the insurance company that they needed to give me the maximum settlement of insurance coverage. The money was and is very important to my family. I recommend Mr. Herron to anyone needing an honest, intelligent and strong attorney to represent them and to fight hard for them. That is what Mr. Herron did for me.

Thank you so much!
Before I called the Herron Law office, I called many other personal injury law offices for free advice. I left many messages, but I received no callback. Then I called Herron Law and spoke with Olga. She spent almost an hour talking to me about my car accident case and told me what I needed to do next. She even emailed me the summary of our conversation to remind me what steps I needed to take in case I forgotten. Thank you, again.

I had a very difficult case because I had been injured so many times in the past. The insurance company’s lawyers tried to make fun of me and kept saying that if I was hurt then it was someone else’s fault and because of one of my old injuries. Mr. Herron put a stop to this. He forced them to deal with the damages I had. And, he made them to pay for the injuries I had now and the old injuries which were made worse. I am grateful for his strength and tack. Mr. Herron stood up for me.

Sometimes it takes more than a well-rounded education, years of experience, and an understanding of the psychology that separates prosecution from defense . . . sometimes it takes Guts to stay the course! We initially chose Mr. Herron based on AVVO reviews, his years of experience, his area of expertise, and even his physical appearance bearing in mind how our son might receive and interact with Mr. Herron and how Mr. Herron’s appearance might be perceived in the courtroom by juror’s.

The Settlement... Was Much Better Than Anything The Insurance Company Had Offered Me
I recommend Herron Law, LLC to everyone. I was hurt in a car accident and the insurance company tried to get me to settle without talking to an attorney. I am glad that I talked with you instead. The settlement your people obtained for me was much better than anything the insurance company had offered me. It turned out that I went through an unexpected hardship right after the car accident. I ended up really needing the extra money. Thanks for all of your help and concern.

Got More Then 3 Times the Money the Insurance Company Was Wanting To Pay
I contacted your law firm for help after being hurt. I had been talking with the insurance company. The adjuster wanted to settle. But I was concerned that I should talk to a lawyer. Your firm represented me and got more than three times the money the insurance company was wanting to pay. I’m very thankful for the money and what you did for me.
