As a negligence lawyer in Oregon, Paul Galm has handled a wide array of negligence cases and prides himself on holding negligent parties responsible. What is negligence? When a person or party is negligent, it means they acted in a reckless or unreasonable manner; their actions put other people in danger. If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury , call Galm Law to find out if that injury was caused by someone else’s negligence.

Animal Bites

An estimated 4.7 million dog bites happen each year in the U.S.  Galm Law has over 15 years of experience and legal knowledge of dog bite cases, including familiarity with both local dog bite and animal attack laws in Beaverton and Portland, as well as state-level laws in Oregon.

For example, most city codes prohibit owners from allowing their dogs to run leash-free. If a dog owner violates such a code–and their dog bites someone–the owner is liable.  In fact, ORS 31.360 provides for the recovery of economic damages.  Dog bite cases are incredibly complex, which is why you need a dog bite attorney who will hold negligent parties responsible.

Daycare Negligence

In addition to being a daycare negligence attorney, Paul Galm is also a father of three young girls. He understands that daycare negligence cases can be particularly heartbreaking. Such cases can include anything from child abuse, to negligent supervision resulting in an injured child. Negligence can be seen in a facility’s failure to meet certain safety protocols or failure to screen its employees for violent or predatory backgrounds.

Product Liability

The goal is simple–make sure companies do not value their bottom line over public safety. As consumers, we buy products with the expectation they are safe. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Product liability centers on unsafe or defective products. Product liability lawyers bring cases regarding a defective product under one of the following three theories: negligence, breach of warranty, and strict liability.

Slip and Fall / Premises Liability

Have you or a loved one been hurt on the premises of a business, apartment complex or even at somebody’s home? Oregon property owners have to use reasonable care in keeping their premises safe. Depending on the location of the slip and fall accident, there could be higher safety standards required. For example, Oregon landlords must satisfy certain safety regulations or risk liability.

Nursing Home Negligence

Moving to or placing a loved one into a nursing home can be heart-wrenching.  The one hope is that wherever the home, it is a loving and respectful environment. As an experienced nursing home abuse attorney, Paul Galm of Paul Galm Law is familiar with the extensive regulations that Oregon nursing homes must meet. We can even help you determine a nursing home’s complaint history and discover if you have a negligent supervision or nursing home neglect care.
