Eugene Car Accident Attorney
Protecting Your Rights & Best Interests
Getting involved in a car accident is one of the most traumatic experiences in your life, especially if you have been injured. Although you may be entitled to financial compensation from the negligent party, they may deny liability to avoid paying your medical expenses, lost wages, and even pain and suffering, which means you may end up having to pay everything out of your own pocket.
If you suffered an injury in a car accident caused by negligence in Oregon, Lowe Law Group is committed to protecting your rights and best interests throughout the legal process. Our Eugene car accident lawyer can investigate the accident, gather supporting evidence, negotiate with insurance adjusters, and maximize the compensation you deserve.

- Multi-vehicle accidents
- Single-vehicle collisions
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions

- Uninsured/underinsured driver accidents

Oregon Car Accident Laws
Oregon is a “fault” car accident state, meaning that the at-fault party is financially responsible for the damages stemming from a collision. The injured party could recover financial compensation by filing a claim with their own insurance company (which, in turn, will pursue a subrogation claim against the liable party’s insurer), directly filing a third-party claim with the liable party, or filing a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party.
However, there are many crashes where all parties involved share some blame. Oregon is a “modified comparative negligence” state, meaning an injured party’s award will be reduced their percentage of fault—if their share is not more than the at-fault parties.
For example, if a jury awards you $100,000 in damages, but also believes you are 20 percent responsible for the collision, your total damages will be reduced by 20 percent or $20,000. In the end, your total award is $80,000.
