Our law firm is completely dedicated to handling a limited number of personal injury cases including cases occurring in Lake Oswego. We have achieved results in personal injury claims ranging from simple car crashes to complex medical negligence claims.
We try hard to get you the best settlement offers possible. But sometimes the insurance company feels they have a defense or they undervalue a claim. In those cases, to get the fair compensation you deserve, you will need to go to trial.
Many personal injury attorneys prepare their cases for settlement and have little or no trial experience. Our law firm prepares each case for trial, and then we negotiate from a position of strength. Chad Stavley has had many jury trials and his results in court have significantly exceeded the final offers made by the defense.

No Fee Unless We Win
We handle all our cases on a contingency fee basis. That means we never ask you for a penny. Our fee is a percentage of what we recover for you. We also base our percentage on the amount remaining after medical liens and outstanding medical bills are paid. Not every personal injury attorney will agree to do that.
Also, unlike some personal injury attorneys, we advance all the costs on behalf of our clients to make sure you recover the maximum amount possible. This can be a significant amount of money and includes costs for court filing fees, experts, retrieving medical records, depositions, and deposition transcripts.

Mr. Stavley represented a construction worker who was injured when a truck in oncoming traffic tried to make a last-second left turn across traffic but instead hit the construction worker causing a significant collision. The construction worker suffered a compression fracture at T-12 and a cervical disc herniation at C-6/7. Neither injury required surgery and both healed in time but with some ongoing symptoms. Mr. Stavley resolved the case against the at-fault driver's insurance carrier for policy limits - $25,000 - and then brought a lawsuit against the construction worker's own insurance company for underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. The case settled shortly before trial for an additional $500,000.
Mr. Stavley represented the driver and passenger of a car that was struck head-on by a distracted driver. The clients both suffered orthopedic injuries which required surgeries and brief hospitalizations. Mr. Stavley recovered the $100,000 policy limits for each victim from the at-fault driver and an additional $100,000 for each victim from the UIM carrier. All health insurance liens were waived due to Oregon Senate Bill 421.
Mr. Stavley represented a Clackamas County woman who was hiking in a park when an off-leash dog ran into her, causing her to fall and dislocate her elbow. The owners of the dog denied liability and argued that the woman fell due to her own negligence. Prior to hiring Mr. Stavley, the woman attempted to negotiate a settlement using a different personal injury lawyer. The insurance company for the dog owner would not go above $80,000. She then hired Mr. Stavley. He filed a personal injury lawsuit against the dog's owners and began preparing for trial. A month before trial, the insurance company relented and Chad negotiated a personal injury settlement for $325,000.
Chad helped us walk the difficult path of victims of a violent crime. He was experienced and reassuring through tough times.
