Why a Washington / Oregon Lawyer?

Washington Oregon Attorney / Lawyer

Why have an attorney licensed in both Washington and Oregon? Sometimes cases involve a factual situation in which the laws of more than one state apply. For example, let’s say that you have an auto insurance policy out of the state of Oregon but you get in an auto accident in the state of Washington. And lets say that you are in a serious auto accident in which the person that hit you doesn’t have enough insurance to cover your damages because that person only has the minimal policy required by law. You, on the other hand, have an excellent underinsured motorist policy that would compensate you for all of your injuries that are not covered by the at-fault driver. This would be a case that would involve the laws of Washington for the tort claim of the auto accident and the laws of Oregon that would involve a contractual claim against your own auto insurance regarding your underinsured motorist coverage.
