Life is busy enough without being hurt in an accident. Once this happens, there are a lot of problems to solve.
With more cars and bicycles sharing the road, we are seeing an unfortunate increase in the number of injuries.
Motorcycle accidents typically involve more significant injuries than car accidents. And many people are biased against motorcyclists.
If you are injured by a negligent driver, while walking, jogging or crossing the street, you have a claim against the driver.
Did you know that It’s important not to give a recorded statement until you’ve talked to an attorney?
Rideshare drivers are not employees, which can make filing a claim and pursuing compensation after an accident a complex process.
Because Dog bite cases can be challenging to prove, it is best to consult with an experienced Dog Bite Attorney as soon after the incident as possible.
In Driving Under the Influence Accidents, you need to consult an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that a proper investigation is completed within the required timeframe.

people who have been injured in an accident?
Developed by Bridge City Law
One of the many mutual goals we share with Healthcare Providers who treat people who have been injured in an accident, is ensuring that their patients get the care they need to recover from their injuries.
Unfortunately, the way the personal injury claims process works is that insurance companies impose requirements that make it difficult for patients to receive treatment to get better and for their Medical Providers to be paid for their services.

THE FOUNDATION OF BRIDGE CITY LAW
Service and Caring Begins With Passion
Dean Heiling has been practicing law for over 50 years, has authored several Oregon personal injury civil statutes, and won a number of cases before the Oregon Supreme Court.
In 1998, Dean founded Dean Heiling & Associates, a Portland-based personal injury law firm (now Bridge City Law) to help protect and provide justice for those who have been injured and experienced loss due to an accident.
Over the years, Dean grew a firm of compassionate and exceptionally skilled attorneys and legal professionals who share a commitment to taking on the legal needs of their clients, so they have the peace of mind to focus on healing from their injuries.
Throughout three decades of Dean’s leadership and mentorship, the firm developed a reputation for guiding its clients through the complexity of personal injury law, being reliable, responsive, and working diligently to deliver the best possible results for their client’s cases.
Clients appreciate having Dean as their attorney because he’s easy to talk to, he’s trustworthy, has a depth of understanding of personal injury law, and has a sincere and caring way about him that helps his clients not feel alone in what can be a challenging time and stressful experience.
Dean’s greatest gratification comes from helping people. It’s not just the way he practices law; it’s the way he lives.
