Negligence can be difficult to define. An experienced Portland negligence attorney like Greg Zeuthen can examine the details of your case, clearly determine the negligent individuals, and fight for the damages they caused you.
In a negligence action, the law describes personal injury as any harm caused to a person, such as a broken bone, a cut, or a contusion. In other words, any type of bodily injury.
There are several ways to pursue a personal injury claim. Depending on the situation, negligence can occur when someone gets hurt due to someone else’s inaction or by someone else's careless actions.

- Automobile accident
