Oregon Dog Bite Attorney
Michael A. Colbach
Over 33 million dollars in verdict and settlements in just the last 10 years.
How do you know which Portland dog bite injury attorney to choose?
Before you hire a personal injury attorney, make sure they are qualified. 95% of Oregon personal injury attorneys rarely, if ever, go to trial. Most are not very good at it and have had little success at trial. If you hire a lawyer who does not try cases, you are stuck taking whatever the insurance company offers. Anyone can say that they are aggressive and will fight for your rights. Make them prove it. Before you hire an attorney, ask them how many cases they have tried to a jury and what there results have been. If they are not actively trying cases and have not had a number of large verdicts, do you want to trust them with your case?
Why should you hire Michael A. Colbach?
Proven results. I do not know of any other Oregon attorney who is consistently getting better jury verdicts on motor vehicle cases. I can make insurance companies pay when they do not want to by taking your case to a jury. A judge recently showed me the list of top Multnomah County auto accident verdicts. According to this list, two of the top ten verdicts are car accident cases that I tried to a jury. I have two of the top 4 Multnomah County auto accident jury verdicts since 2014. Some of these trials and verdicts were reported on by the Portland media: Bicyclist hit by test driver and Cyclist vs. New Seasons. These verdicts were not 10 years ago, they were as recent as 2011. I am actively trying personal injury cases and as long as insurance companies continue to try and cheat my clients, I intend to keep trying cases.
Trial Attorney with over $31 million in verdict and settlements in just the last ten years.
Without the threat of a lawyer who is willing to go to trial and seek a big jury verdict, why would an insurance company pay you what your claim is really worth? Lawsuits can be expensive, and many people do not have the money to pursue their claim. In every case, I advance all costs associated with pursuing your case and I do not ask you for a penny until we recover from the other side.
