As a negligence attorney in Oregon, Paul Galm has handled a wide array of negligence cases and prides himself on holding negligent parties responsible. If someone is negligent, generally speaking, it means they acted in a reckless or unreasonable manner, and that these actions put other people in danger. If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury , call us to find out if that injury was caused by someone else’s negligence.

Animal Bites

An estimated 4.7 million dog bites happen each year in the U.S.  Paul has experience and knowledge with dog bite cases–including familiarity with both Oregon state and local Portland & Beaverton laws that place certain requirements on dog owners.

For example, most city codes prohibit owners from allowing their dogs to run free.  If a dog owner violates such a code–and their dog bites someone–the owner is liable.  In fact, ORS 31.360 provides for the recovery of economic damages.  Dog bite cases are incredibly complex – and that is why you need a dog bite attorney who will hold negligent parties responsible.

Daycare Negligence

As a parent of three young girls, in addition to being a daycare negligence attorney, Paul knows daycare negligence cases can be particularly heartbreaking.  Such cases can include anything from a broken arm to child abuse. Negligence can be seen in a facility’s failure to meet certain safety protocol or even failure to screen its employees for violent or predatory backgrounds.

Product Liability

The goal is simple–make sure companies do not value their bottom line over public safety. As consumers, we buy products with the expectation they are safe. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Products liability centers on unsafe or defective products. Products liability lawyers bring cases regarding a defective product under one of the following three theories: negligence, breach of warranty, and strict liability.

Slip and Fall / Premises Liability

Have you or a loved one been hurt on the premises of a business, apartment complex or even at somebody’s home? Oregon property owners have to use reasonable care in keeping their premises safe. Depending on the location of the fall, there could be higher safety standards required. For example, Oregon landlords have to satisfy certain safety regulations or risk liability.

Nursing Home Negligence

Moving to or placing a loved one into a nursing home can be heart-wrenching.  The one hope is that wherever the home, it is a loving and respectful environment. As an experienced nursing home abuse attorney, Paul is familiar with the extensive regulations in Oregon nursing homes must meet. We can even help you determine a nursing’s complaint history and discover if you have a case.
