Eugene, Oregon, Personal Injury Lawyers

Settlement vs. Trial

Personal injury trial attorney Mike Arnold cross-examining an expert witness about the angular momentum in a cliff fall.

We prepare each Oregon personal injury case for settlement as if we were going to trial. The goal is that no questions are left unanswered and no insurance settlement dollars are left on the table. We are not a personal injury mill that takes your case, puts it in the hopper, and then reacts to the insurance company’s offer. We prepare your case from the beginning for the best settlement or trial result. We get to know the client and the facts. They become like family.

To protect your interests, you need to hire an Oregon trial lawyer, not a settlement lawyer. It’s easy to tell the difference. Watch videos of lawyers you are vetting, listen to them speak, ask them about trial war stories, etc. When interviewing potential Eugene, Or., personal injury attorneys, ask them how many jury trials they’ve had in the last ten years. Trial law is not something an attorney can dabble in. Just as you wouldn’t have your family doctor conduct open heart surgery on you, you need an Oregon trial and personal injury specialist.

Eugene, Oregon Accident/Injury Attorney


Oregon serious injury attorney Michael Arnold has the trial experience to give you a fair assessment of your case without giving you unreasonable expectations at your initial consult.

If you or a loved one has been injured by the actions or inactions of another, you need competent and experienced representation from an experienced Oregon trial attorney. Remember that the insurance companies, yours included, are not your friends. They are businesses interested in the bottom line and are accountable to their shareholders. Once you have a personal injury claim open, you become a liability to them. They are interested in ending your claim as soon as possible with as little payout as possible.

A personal injury or wrongful death attorney can deal with the insurance companies on your behalf and leave you to the important jobs of getting better and living your life. If you and your attorney have a contingent fee agreement, then retaining a personal injury attorney early on to deal with the insurance companies costs you the same as waiting.
