Why Choose Our Oregon Personal Injury Firm for Boating Accidents?

Defending Insurance Companies for 50 Years

The first rule of a successful negotiation is: Know Your Opponent. In an injury case, your opponents are (1) the insurance industry, and (2) their highly skilled defense law firms.

Fortunately for Spooner Staggs clients, no law firm knows the insurance industry better than we do―we spent 50 years as one of the insurance industry’s top defense firms for their biggest, toughest cases. We’ve walked in their shoes, analyzed thousands of cases for them, and encouraged fair outcomes for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of boating-related accidents and injuries.

This rare experience has given us an insider’s knowledge and understanding into how the insurance industry analyzes, evaluates, prices, and settles cases. We’ve walked in their shoes, so we know all their tools, tricks, and techniques. We know the buttons to push and the levers to pull to motivate them to settle cases more quickly and for more money.

With an unparalleled understanding of insurance companies cultivated through years of defending them, we bring a uniquely powerful advantage to those seeking justice after a maritime mishap.

Understanding the mindset of insurance companies is crucial when seeking fair compensation. We possess a nuanced insight into how insurers operate, evaluate cases, and make settlement decisions. This knowledge allows us to strategically leverage that insight to ensure our clients receive the maximum settlement for their injuries.

In an era where fewer cases proceed to trial, we stand as fierce and effective trial lawyers. With a track record of successful jury trials that few law firms in Oregon can equal, we’re ready to expertly take your case to trial if necessary.
