Verdicts & Settlements Obtained By Tim Grabe

Oregon's legal system is geared to provide a person injured through the fault of others with a fair, speedy, and cost-effective solution. Yet insurers may deny, delay, and defend claims in an effort to increase their profits. They want injured claimants to dry up and blow away -- and many people who lose their jobs and have bills to pay and need somebody in their corner. Our goal is to settle for a fair, top-quality amount, considering costs, benefits and timing. Mediators and settlement judges can help resolve disputes. If the case can't be settled despite our best efforts, we take it to trial.

Results we've achieved in cases where insurers chose to fight in court:


$3,000,000.00 - Maritime salvage of ship in distress off Alaska coast.

$240,000.00 - Federal court trial of maritime salvors' wages for underwater diving work on distressed vessel in Columbia River.

Maritime Unpaid Wages Case

In July 2015 Attorney Tim Grabe helped a small maritime business win a jury trial over the issue of unpaid diving and salvage labor when a flooded river swamped a big boat, and Tim's client went to the rescue. The insurer for the sunken boat refused to pay up, so a jury listened to testimony about why the boat sunk, the efforts that divers and salvors spent in dealing with the emergency, and finally the jury came up with an award of money that fairly paid the diving company for their two weeks of round-the-clock work. Tim used computer visuals and in-court demonstrations of what divers do, in order to show the jury what really happened.
