If you or a loved one has been injured due to the fault of another person, company, or organization, you should consult with a Salem personal injury attorney to understand all your options. Don't make a mistake that could impact your future.
When you are looking for a personal injury attorney you should try to find a lawyer with experience getting results on cases similar to yours. So, if you were injured in a car accident you should look for a personal injury lawyer experienced in getting results in car accident cases. Visit our results page to see our recent verdicts and settlements.
You should also look for Salem personal injury lawyers with winning trial experience. The reason for this is simple; some cases do not settle. Even if liability is very clear in your personal injury case, the insurance company may not offer enough money. If you have a personal injury without winning trial experience, you could be stuck accepting a weak offer. Chad Stavley has tried approximately 100 cases to verdict.
You should also look for Salem personal injury attorneys who handle personal injury claims on a contingency fee. That means they don't get paid unless you win, and then they take a percentage of the verdict or settlement.
It is important that the personal injury lawyers you consider also agree to advance costs. That means that the law firm advances the costs of bringing your case and not you. This can end up being a substantial amount of money. Costs that are necessary to build your personal injury case include costs for experts, costs for obtaining medical records, costs for meetings with your treating doctors, costs for court reporters, and deposition transcripts. Some Salem personal injury lawyers don't advance those costs. Do not get stuck with a personal injury lawyer who is constantly asking you for money.
Our law firm operates exclusively on contingency fees and we advance ALL the costs required to build a strong personal injury case.

Mr. Stavley represented a man who was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome after a moderate-impact car crash in an intersection. The injury required surgery which had some complications. The client initially hired a different personal injury attorney who recommended that he accept a small settlement amount due to his complicated medical history and medical treatment. He called Chad for a free case evaluation and ended up getting five times more money than he was previously offered.
Mr. Stavley represented a man involved in a Salem, Oregon traffic crash where his car was forced off the road into a tree. The man initially had no complaints of pain, but eventually had neck pain and headaches. He underwent a cervical disc fusion and suffered post-concussive symptoms. The at-fault driver offered her $50,000 policy limits. Mr. Stavley then brought a lawsuit for underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. His insurance carrier argued that much of the injuries were unrelated to the car crash. Mr. Stavley recovered an additional $215,000 settlement against the UIM carrier.
