If you’ve been hurt, and the injury wasn’t your fault, your legal rights leave many options of compensation open to you. Unfortunately, many people in the Portland area simply don’t know that personal injury claim options are open to them. Bicyclists could live with a sore back or headaches for years into the future, and drivers hit by a commercial truck could be jipped out of the compensation that they’re due by a penny-pinching insurance company.

Personal injury attorneys, like the ones that you’ll meet at Russell & Hill, PLLC, are highly educated, trained, and skilled in the area of personal injury accidents.

A personal injury attorney can help you navigate the confusing legal waters, interface with insurance companies, and handle the settlement claims process while you simply focus on recovering from your injuries.
Bicycle / Pedestrian Accident
Pedestrian accidents are a common and oftentimes serious source of personal injury in Portland areas. Pedestrians, in the eyes of the law, include walkers, bicyclists, skateboarders, and other non-motorized vehicles.
As a pedestrian, it is rare for you to be considered at fault in the accident, and you will likely have numerous options for insurance coverage for your injuries available to you. For instance, a pedestrian injured in an auto accident actually has access to the at-fault driver’s personal injury protection policy, should the driver’s insurance policy include that form of coverage.
A personal injury attorney can help you through the legal aspects of your case and let you know what kind of coverage options you have. The personal injury attorneys at Russell & Hill, PLLC Law Firm have years of experience with cases like this, and they understand how to handle the details of your case expertly.
Auto accidents are one of the most prolific types of personal injury accidents across the nation. Despite the fact that they happen so frequently in the Portland area, many drivers don’t understand the benefits that one of our personal injury attorneys can offer them.

However, our personal injury attorneys can help a no-fault driver receive medical coverage through either their own insurance, or the at-fault driver’s policy.
At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we work hard to ensure that our clients receive the damages and compensation that they’re rightfully due. You should be free to focus on your recovery, and we’ll handle the logistics, details, conversations, and claim proceedings.
The scenic highways that cut through the beautiful country of the Portland area attract many motorcyclists. Unfortunately, the curving byroads and highways often present a hazard for motorcyclists.
Motorcycle accidents can be one of the most devastating accidents on the road. Because bikers have far less protection than the vehicles around them, motorcyclists will usually sustain the most serious injuries. Additionally, the small size of a motorcycle can make them difficult to see. When other vehicles on the roadways fail to give motorcycles enough space, or fail to notice them, this will too frequently result in a deadly collision.
At Russell & Hill, PLLC we know that the stigma of crazy-riding motorcyclists is nonsense. In fact, our experience has shown that frequently motorcyclists are exceptionally careful and cautious riders, aware that they are less protected in the event of an accident.

Construction Site Accident
