  1. Car accident
    25%
    A car accident only takes a second, but the consequences of a crash can last for days, months, or even a lifetime. A drunk driver slams into your car head-on on the highway, resulting in a lifetime of chronic back pain. A tired truck driver doesn't see your car when it merges onto the interstate, and now you can't pay your bills and support your family. A distracted driver hits you in an intersection in downtown Portland, causing serious broken bones, nerve damage, or a traumatic brain injury.

  3. Trucking accident
    20%
    The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration establishes rules and regulations that govern commercial motor vehicles and the companies who operate then. These regulations are intended to keep the interstate highways safe. Even so, every year in the United States, trucks are involved in 5,000 deaths, 100,000 serious injuries, and 500,000 accidents. Trucking accidents are much more likely to cause serious injury or death due to the difference in size and weight between a truck and a car.

  4. Defective and dangerous products
    15%
    Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers of commercial products have a responsibility to ensure that any product used by consumers is reasonably safe for its intended use. When they make or sell unsafe products, people can be seriously injured. According to statistics from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, nearly 30 million people are injured every year due to defective products. Design or Manufacturing Defect, or Insufficient Instructions and Warnings can all cause personal injury.

  5. Motorcycle accident

    Fatality rates for motorcyclists are far higher than the fatality rate for passenger car occupants. At Shulman DuBois, LLC, our motorcycle injury lawyers dedicate our practice to protecting the rights of those injured by another's negligence.

TOP-RATED PORTLAND OREGON PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

I can't say that I always thought I'd be a lawyer, but I was certainly on the path to becoming one. I went to one of the top debate schools on a debate scholarship, so in hindsight, it seemed obvious that I would eventually be in a courtroom. But I saw a lot of my friends burn out at big law firms helping rich corporations get richer and realized that wasn't what I wanted to do. I wanted to know that what I was doing made a difference. I wanted to help people.

 

So I decided to pursue my love of nature and the outdoors, spending the better part of a decade living as simply as I could all over the West and then in Hawaii and Florida, where I worked as a research diver at Florida Atlantic University's Department of Ocean Engineering. And it was there that I saw how corporate greed was ruining the things I loved, and places I called home.

 

That's when I decided that I didn't have to work for large corporations. Instead, I could battle against them. And what better place than the insurance companies, right? It wasn't hard to see the pain and suffering they caused just because they had more money than everyone else, and wanted to keep that money, and even make more of it. I couldn't believe we could just let a company do that while people, just like me, were simply asking for what they deserved. No more, no less.

 

Early in law school, I went to work for some of the best personal injury attorneys in Oregon. Following admittance to the Oregon State Bar, I worked with a well-known senior personal injury attorney in Portland, and then formed my own practice, DuBois Law Office. While volunteering on a committee for the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA), I met Josh Shulman and we joined forces and formed Shulman DuBois LLC.

I love living in the Pacific Northwest with my family, and often take advantage of the outdoor opportunities the area provides, like free-diving and scuba diving on the Oregon Coast. And my wife and I and our children ski together every chance we get. We also travel to Sweden, where my wife was born and raised, to visit her family as often as possible.

Great Lawyer
When I called this office, I spoke to a paralegal first, which was fine. But when I finally got to talk to Sean, I was pleasantly surprised by how nice he was. Everyone was great.They really took away my stress because they took care of everything, even my medical bills. I would definitely work with Shulman DuBois again.
