Helping the Injured Recover After an Accident

The Law Offices of Timothy Grabe is focused on helping injured clients get the compensation they need after suffering a serious injury. The insurance company’s concern is to maximize profits by minimizing your harms and losses. At the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe, our Portland personal injury attorney’s job is to set things right by balancing the scales of justice!

That means pursuing a fair settlement based on what is the highest realistic amount that will pay for your harms and losses so that you can get your life back. We stand ready to go head-to-head with the biggest insurance companies, highest-paid defense attorneys, corporate manufacturers, and any other parties who stand in the way of you and the recovery you are owed.

Time is money, so we fast-track cases when we can. After more than 35 years of trial experience, celebrated Portland personal injury attorney Timothy Grabe has hard-won skills that give him the edge over his colleagues in the industry. The Law Offices of Timothy Grabe will stand by your side from day one after your injury until your case is complete. We will fight for you to get the results you deserve, whether that means negotiating a favorable settlement or securing a victory at trial.

Do You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you’ve been hurt in an accident in the State of Oregon, you have the right to recover damages from the people who hurt you. Many accident victims consider taking on their cases on their own, planning to field negotiations with insurance providers and handle court battles with defense lawyers without support. You can represent yourself, but with the help of a passionate, effective, and trial-ready Portland personal injury attorney, you can accomplish so much more:

We’ve been there before. Most people will only have one serious accident, at most, in their lifetimes. Most people will never see the inside of a courtroom or sit across from insurance sharks. At the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe, we have thirty years of experience handling these matters. We know the players, we know the tricks, we know the game. We know the ins and outs of court proceedings, insurance claims, and all other elements of a personal injury case. We won’t let anything fall through the cracks.

We know how much your case is worth. Insurance companies and defense lawyers like to give lowball settlement offers, hoping that you will accept the quick cash without truly understanding the value of your claim. With us on your side, they won’t play those games. We know how to truly value your claims, including medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages. We will make sure you know everything you need to know before you consider a settlement offer so that you are not stuck with the bill years down the line.

We won’t let big companies push us around. Our legal team has been on both sides of the table, and we have stood toe-to-toe with the biggest insurance providers, corporate manufacturers, and defense firms. We do not back down, and we do not get intimidated. We fight for the recovery that our clients deserve, no matter who is on the other side of the room.

You can focus on your recovery. With a strong legal advocate in your corner, you can forget about the burdens and complications of your legal case. Focus on your recovery, your family, and getting your life back on track. Dealing with a complicated legal claim can be a full-time job, and you have enough on your plate. Let us shoulder the legal burden and fight to maximize your recovery on your behalf.

Why Hire Our Firm?

Decades of Trial-Tested Experience

Since 1983, we have helped personal injury victims just like you seek justice for their harms and losses when caused by another person’s negligent, reckless, or intentional actions. As you navigate this difficult time of your life, we can seek out a route and result that gives you the best possible opportunity to receive full and fair compensation.

Founding attorney Timothy Grabe has been handling lawsuits for over three decades, and he’s served on both sides of the table. Tim draws from his experience representing insurance companies to make sure they don’t pull the same old tricks on his personal injury clients. He knows how they think, and he knows what arguments and evidence work against them in the courtroom. He has decades of trial experience, a passion for serving members of his community, and a burning desire to bring all of this to bear to ensure that accident victims like you get the recovery you deserve for your Oregon personal injury claim.

Dedicated Service on a Variety of Personal Injury Matters

Our firm represents a wide variety of personal injury cases throughout Portland, including work injuries, motor vehicle accidents, and premises liability. We concentrate especially on catastrophic and fatal injuries, and we take serious accident cases from anywhere across the State of Oregon.

  • Serious or Fatal Car Accidents – If you or a loved one has been injured in a serious car accident, our firm can help you recover the compensation you deserve. We represent victims of drunk driving accidents, hit and runs and uninsured motorist accidents.
  • Construction, Manufacturing, and Logging Accidents – If you or a family member suffered a serious injury on a construction worksite or in a factory, you might be entitled to more compensation than you know. Our third-party negligence legal team will evaluate whether you can recover additional amounts outside of workers’ compensation, including pain and suffering and other emotional damages that you and your family suffered as a result of the accident.
  • Burns, Amputations, Spinal Injuries and Brain Injuries – A catastrophic injury is one that drastically alters the quality of your life. Whether your injuries prevent you from ever returning to work, or if they result in a need for lifelong medical care, we can help ensure you and your family get the compensation you need.
  • Motorcycle, Bicycle, Truck, and Pedestrian Accidents – If you were seriously injured in a traffic crash, whatever the nature of the accident, you deserve compensation for the harm and the loss that you have suffered. We help clients who suffer serious injuries in traffic accidents, rollover crashes, T-bone collisions, and all other types of accidents on Oregon roadways.
  • Defective Products – Manufacturing defects can be some of the most difficult cases to prove, but if a defective product hurt you or your family, you have the right to recover. Whether your oven, lawnmower, or washing machine burst in the home, your personal car or delivery van gave out in the middle of a trip, or a factory machine fell to pieces in the middle of a job, you have the right to recover against the manufacturers who let you down and caused you harm.
  • Wrongful Death Cases – While money will never help ease the pain of a loved one’s death, it can help offset some of the unforeseen costs that accompany it. We can help you recover compensation for funeral costs, lost wages and benefits, loss of companionship and more.

Extensive Experience Handling Personal Injury Claims

Before working as a personal injury attorney in Portland, our founder wore a black hat for several years and worked for insurers to defeat legitimate injury claims. His decision to change paths was directed by his desire to help real people with real, life-altering injuries as they seek to get their lives back on track after suffering from another’s negligence.

A case against an entrenched insurance company that doesn’t honor its obligations to victims can be a long campaign. That is why you need an experienced attorney who has the skills, knowledge, and toughness to pursue a fair and just settlement or verdict.

We only take on a limited number of cases because we personally handle each one from start to finish. There’s power in numbers, however, and sometimes Tim will put together a team which includes co-counsel for additional support in your case. Tim knows the best co-counsel, the best medical experts, and the best consultants for all types of personal injury cases. When you hire Tim, you can trust that you will have the best trial team in your corner.

With us, you are more than just a case number. We treat every client with respect, compassion, and professionalism. Our mission is to fight for you, and we are prepared to pursue every dollar you need to move forward from your injuries.

Car Accidents
Car accidents can turn into financial burdens for the victim, especially if injuries were sustained. After a serious accident, you will want to turn to the hardworking and devoted attorney from the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe. We can handle all the legal details connected with your car accident case and fight for the just financial compensation you deserve.
Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can have devastating effects on individuals and families. According to the United States Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, almost 9% of all truck accidents on the road have fatal results.
Motorcycle Accidents
There is a phrase that is commonly used among motorcycle riders, "It is not if you fall, but when you fall." Each year, hundreds of thousands of motorcycle riders are involved in major accidents. Of these accidents, the majority of them are treatable in the hospital, and victims are usually quickly released; however, according to the Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 5,000 fatal motorcycle accidents occur each year.
Pedestrian Accidents
Every year, thousands of individuals are injured or killed in accidents on the roads and highways of our country. Of the many car accidents which occur annually, approximately 100,000 of them involve pedestrians. Pedestrians and those on bicycles are among the most vulnerable accident victims. Without the protective steel shell of an automobile, pedestrians can encounter dangerous and often fatal impacts with other vehicles, the road, and objects.
Bicycle Accidents
Need a bicycle accident lawyer in Oregon? If you or a loved one was struck by a negligent driver in a car or truck accident, you deserve full and fair compensation.
Logging Accidents
Though logging can be a dangerous job due to the manual labor and machinery involved, sometimes accidents don’t always happen on their own. It’s possible for injuries and deaths to result not from outside conditions, but from negligence on the part of the logging employer, machine manufacturer, or some other individual or entity. If you or a loved one has been injured in a logging accident in Oregon, you want to be represented by someone who knows what it’s like to be out in the field. Our Portland logging accident attorney has worked blue-collar jobs including in logging and is able to understand your unique situation. At the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe, you can expect to be treated with respect and compassion as we achieve justice on your behalf.
Work Accidents
If you were injured on the job by someone other than your employer, or if your injuries were sustained from a product or motor vehicle, you might be able to receive additional compensation. On top of your normal workers’ compensation benefits, third-party compensation claims can be made against manufacturers, cities, or any other company that allowed a condition to exist that resulted in your injury. These benefits can be tricky to navigate, and the laws governing them may be hard to understand. The skilled Portland personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe can help you navigate your claim to fight for the full recovery you deserve.
Construction Accidents
According to the American Community Survey (ACS), more than 11 million people are currently employed in the United States construction industry—which accounts for an astonishing 7.7% of the total civilian workforce aged 16 or older. Although this industry continues to grow each year, it still remains that it is one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Not only are workers subjected to grueling work hours, but they are expected to utilize their bodies day-in and day-out.
Premises Liability
Were you injured on another person’s property? Did the owner or landlord allow an unsafe condition to exist, resulting in an accident that left you injured? If so, you may be eligible to receive compensation from the negligent owner. As you pursue just compensation from the accident, you will need a Portland personal injury lawyer to help ensure that the maximum amount of damages are received.
Railroad Worker Accidents
Working on railroads can be a dangerous job, but that doesn’t mean you deserve to be injured, especially due to the negligence of your employer or third party. In a railway accident statistic from the Office of Safety within the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), over the past 10 years there have been more than 113,000 railroad accidents. Of those accidents, 77,705 resulted in non-fatal injuries and 6,989 resulted in fatalities. If you or someone you love has been injured in an Oregon train accident as a railroad worker, it’s recommended you act quickly and hire an attorney who can seek the compensation you deserve to recover. Our Portland railroad worker accident attorney is on the side of workers, and has recovered tens of millions of dollars for clients who have gone on to lead improved lives. At the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe, your well-being is our priority.
Product Liability
According to Oregon Code §35.900, all manufacturers, distributors, sellers, and lessors are responsible for providing consumers with reasonably safe products. This means that all types of merchandise, from baby toys to auto parts, must be adequately tested before they can be distributed to the general public. Should one sect in the “chain of distribution” fail to uphold this responsibility, they may be held accountable for providing all wrongfully injured consumers with necessary damages.
Sport Bike Accidents
Sport bikes are high performance motorcycles known for fast acceleration and maneuverability. This can work against the rider and prove to be a dangerous hazard, especially when other motor vehicle drivers are acting negligently. In fact, motorcyclists are five times as likely to be injured in a vehicle crash than regular motor vehicle drivers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Swimming Pool Accidents
In the state of Oregon, all property owners who possess a swimming pool are responsible for ensuring that their visitors are kept reasonably safe when in or around its vicinity. This includes residential homeowners, managers of public pools, the owners of a hotel, etc. Although they are only responsible for maintaining a reasonably safe environment—which means that they cannot be held accountable for accidents caused by the victim’s own negligence or carelessness—they must take steps to remedy any hazardous conditions that arise, conduct routine maintenance, and post sufficient warning signs. Should they fail to do so, they may be liable for providing any victims with compensation through a premises liability lawsuit.
Catastrophic Injury
The emotional strain following a catastrophic injury can be overwhelming to a victim and his or her family. Such an injury may result in permanent disabilities which may require a lifetime of medical care, nursing care, or personal assistance. At a time like this, you need an advocate who can help resolve your insurance issues and seek the justice you deserve. We offer help to victims of Burn Injuries, Brain Injuries, Limb Amputations, and Spinal Cord Injuries.
Wrongful Death
If someone you love has passed away after an accident or because of injuries sustained by another person’s negligence, you need representation from a firm that will help you fight for full and fair compensation. Deaths can be difficult to deal with, and even more so when you know that they could have been prevented.
Negligence Laws
At the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe, we help victims who have suffered injury due to the negligence of others, even if their own negligence may have contributed to the accident. According to the state of Oregon, damages will be awarded in a personal injury case based on “modified comparative negligence.”

“I highly recommend him for his trial abilities and his low key manner in dealing with people.”

“Tim is a brilliant trial attorney, great at courtroom tactics, and bringing out what we want from witnesses on the stand. His choice of jurors was

excellent with our trial. We won both at the original trial and the second litigation against the State Bar’s Professional Liability Fund, in which Tim convinced their board to write us a really big check at Christmastime. Not many trial attorneys can say that they did that. I highly recommend him for his trial abilities and his low key manner in dealing with people.”

Tim attended law school at Lewis & Clark in Portland, where he had the honor of helping edit the Law Review. He graduated in 1982 and worked in criminal defense at a downtown firm.
