Oregon Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
Generally, you have two years from the time you are injured to file a personal injury suit. In most cases, an individual who attempts to file a personal injury case post-deadline will have their case dismissed by the court.
However, there are some exceptions to the rule. If the injured party is under 18 at the time of the accident or has a mental condition that could bar them from comprehending their rights or the statute of limitations, they could have up to five years to file a personal injury case.
Additionally, if the individual you wish to file a personal injury claim against attempts to flee the state or otherwise conceal themselves to avoid the lawsuit, the time that they are absent or concealed for won't count toward the statute of limitations.
Pursuing Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
An accident can change your life and affect your family. It is important to know that you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, ongoing medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earnings, and pain and suffering.

Key Elements in a Personal Injury Claim
Our Portland personal injury attorneys have over 30 years of combined experience handling these cases. This proves invaluable in personal injury matters, as the burden of proof lies with the injured party.
Personal injury cases require that you, as the plaintiff, prove these elements:
- First, that you sustained an injury or some other form of damages.
- Second, that another party, such as a driver, was negligently responsible for your injury.
- Third, that there is a causal link between your damages and that other party's negligence.
Proving these elements can be extremely challenging and may necessitate the help of an experienced Portland personal injury lawyer.
