Filing a Lawsuit Against a Public Body in Oregon


If you're injured on public property, government-owned land, or through the negligence of government employees, you still have the right to receive compensation for your damages. Damages include wage loss, medical bills, and property loss.

In Oregon, the time limit to file against a public body is usually 180 days - although this is always true if there was a death. This article gives the actual Oregon state law regarding injury claims against a public entity, but if you're confused by the legal wording a personal injury attorney can help you understand your rights.
