Portland Construction Injury Lawyers
Experienced Construction Accident Attorneys Serving Oregon and Washington
Every year, thousands of Americans are harmed or killed on construction job sites because of unsafe working conditions.
The construction industry is responsible for almost 18% of all workplace fatalities. Caused by lax safety procedures, negligence, faulty equipment, or poor supervision, most catastrophes that occur on construction sites could have been prevented.
Machines, compressed gasses, nail guns, cranes, scaffolding, and falls can cause serious injuries. Construction companies often blame the worker, but D’Amore Law Group is known for its thorough investigation and case analysis in defense of injured workers against unsafe contractors.

Commercial Construction Accidents Attorneys Portland & Vancouver
The leading causes of construction worker death on job sites are falls, electrocution, and being struck by an object (OSHA) – but there are many ways workers can sustain a catastrophic injury on construction sites. Improperly secured scaffolding, or guardrails, electrocution, defective design (of scaffolding, tools or construction equipment), improper ventilation, and big machines like forklifts can all cause serious injury or even death. Loud noises may cause deafness, and chemical exposure can be fatal.
Residential Construction Site Accidents
Many construction workers incorrectly believe that “getting injured” is part of working in construction. However, construction companies and sub-contractors are required to maintain and enforce safety precautions to protect their workers, other contractors’ workers, and the public. Serious, debilitating injuries occur when work sites are unsafe – and are usually the result of negligence.

The DLG mission states “We are committed to securing justice for people and their families when they have been injured.”I’ve never secured a law firm, was completely overwhelmed with pain and daunted by the challenging insurance settlement process. My DLG experience far exceeded my expectations. The DLG team was true to their mission and demonstrated this at every step of the legal process.I was rear-ended by a semi-truck and had multiple injuries. From the initial consult, demand letter and compiling hundreds of treatment records to several rounds of negotiation and final settlement – they were committed to my case. Tom D’Amore is professional, extremely smart, honest and leads with integrity. I’ve read that he has many industry awards and accolades – and now that I’ve worked with him, I can absolutely see why.When I was injured, I was so immersed in a world of pain, medical treatments, therapies and getting better. The thought of dealing with the opposing insurance company, justifying injuries and medical expenses was completely overwhelming.Luckily, I had Tom and the DLG team to take this on and manage on my behalf. I knew that my case was in the most capable hands and was confident that no team would work harder for me than DLG. They were successful in securing justice for me – just like their mission states.Based on my experience, I would wholeheartedly recommend DLG to my family and friends.
No one wants to be in a car accident, especially one that requires a lawyer's representation.I was in a horrible accident in the summer of 2021 that left my car totalled and my right radius 100% fractured. My mom found Doug Oh-Keith for me and I'm so grateful she did.While I was going through 2 surgeries, living with an external fixator, going through months of physical therapy and coming to terms with the loss of my career, Doug was handling everything else for me. He is, as my mom calls him, a shark - which is exactly the type of lawyer you want working for you. He managed to settle my lawsuit in just over a year, which is apparently very quick for a car accident settlement.I signed a few documents for him, sent him all of my bills, and he handled literally everything else for me.I was rear ended again earlier this year and that case is definitely not big enough to warrant a lawyer, but it's giving me a clear picture of just how much Doug handled for me.There's literally no way that I would have been able to take care of everything Doug did.If you're looking for a lawyer for a car accident, give D'Amore Law Group a call. They are absolutely amazing and, while I hope I never ever ever go through anything like this last year again, I feel secure in knowing that if I do, I can call them up again and they'll fight for me to get what I deserve. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to help me.
I worked with Sean Stokes and he was fabulous! Sean was always professional and pushed to get the maximum pay out from my accident. He was very ethical and was always willing to answer my questions. No one wants a lawsuit, but if you find yourself in this situation, Sean would be the person to turn to.

D’Amore Law Group has done more for me than I thought possible, and I am really grateful for their help. I was severely injured and needed surgery on my spine after I was hit by a car. When you’re in pain 24 hours a day it’s hard to focus on both getting well and handling the insurance chaos. Tom D’Amore and the lawyers and staff went above and beyond what I expected, and I would recommend them to anyone.
