Experienced Portland Truck Accident Lawyers
Call the law firm that has been fighting for the injured since 1979
Trucks of all kinds can be seen on roads in and around Portland every day. Most of the time, we barely notice them, but when there’s an accident, you can be left with serious injuries that have a significant impact on your life. That’s when you need an experienced truck accident lawyer to fight for your rights.
Trucking companies and insurance companies will fight your claim for compensation, because they know there’s a lot of money at stake. At Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC, our Portland attorneys build strong cases that hold negligent parties accountable to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
A Portland truck accident can impact victims and their families physically, emotionally and financially. The injuries suffered in a crash with an 18-wheeler, box truck, garbage truck or other type of truck often require extensive treatment. Medical expenses can become overwhelming, and if you can’t work because of your injuries, there is less money coming in.
Our personal injury attorneys never back down
Insurance companies can challenge your claim for compensation in many ways. They may question the extent of your injuries. They may argue that your injuries were pre-existing and seek access to your medical records. They may even blame you for causing the Portland accident to try to limit your compensation.
Our legal team investigates your Portland truck accident to find out what really happened. We carefully review accident reports and medical records. Our lawyers take action to preserve evidence controlled by the trucking company, such as hours of service (HOS) logs and data from the truck’s event data recorder (the truck’s “black box”). We interview witnesses and if needed, consult accident reconstruction experts.
The driver of the truck in your accident may have been speeding or was distracted at the time of crash. The trucking company may have failed to make needed repairs on the truck or failed to check the driver’s qualifications. Other negligent parties in your Portland crash can include the truck manufacturer, the owner of the trailer or the company that loaded the cargo.

Our Portland attorneys determine which parties were negligent and demand compensation. This includes compensation for all medical expenses related to your injuries, both now and in the future. It includes any lost wages if you were left unable to work. We may also seek compensation for other damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
When insurance companies realize we have built a strong case and are prepared to fight for you in court if necessary, they often agree to discuss a settlement. We’re not interested in making quick deals that help them save money. Our Portland injury attorneys are skilled negotiators who can work out a settlement that meets your needs.
