Portland Wrongful Death Attorney
Pursuing Justice for Wrongful Death Victims
When a loved one’s death is the result someone else’s negligence,
the case can be considered wrongful death. Families of wrongful death
victims are often left emotionally and financially devastated. The legal
system therefore provides families a way to bring a claim against the
negligent party (or company) to hold them accountable for their negligence.
These lawsuits can also help families recoup some of the costs associated
with an unexpected death, including burial and funeral expenses.

difficult things to face, especially when that loved one was lost needlessly
due to someone else's negligence. Our ability to provide effective

We accept cases we are confident have merit. Paulson Coletti gives bereaved
families the voice they deserve after losing their loved one through negligent

Who can file a wrongful death suit in Oregon?
In most cases, the family member who brings forth the wrongful death claim
is a surviving parent, child, or spouse. However, Oregon allows other
family members to file a law suit, including grandparents, stepchildren,
or stepparents. At our firm, we understand that these cases can be difficult
to navigate without proper guidance. We take the time to sit with our
clients and make sure they're informed of each step in the process.
