Bicycle Accidents and Collisions
Riding a bicycle is often a terrific way to clear your head or enjoy time with your family while getting some exercise. With bike lanes and trails available to encourage safe riding patterns, some accidents occur between two riders, which can lead to broken bones, head, neck. and spine injuries just as easily as being hit by a motor vehicle can. Any bicycle accident deserves a consultation with an attorney. We can help you understand the next steps in receiving the proper care.
Dog Attacks and Dog Bites
Dog bites and dog attacks can lead to very serious injuries, including disease, and life-altering scars or disfigurement. Being bit by an animal can be traumatizing, even if you know the dog that caused your injuries, and its owner. Animal instincts are incredibly strong, and if a gate or door is left ajar, their sense to attack anyone near the property can result in a tragic injury, especially where children are involved. If you have suffered a dog bite and believe the pet owner was negligent in their duties to contain the animal, we want to hear from you today.
Motorcycle and ATV Accidents
Motorcycle and ATV riders are inherently vulnerable when an accident occurs, as there is little between the rider and the rode, and the injuries can be severe. This is true when motorcycles and ATVs are involved in accidents with cars, SUVS, and trucks, but also when they are involved in collisions with other riders. The injuries can be life-threatening and require extended care. We can help get you the best medical team available in Bend, OR.
Neck, Back & Brain Injury Cases
Some of the most life-changing accidents result in a spine, neck or brain injury that requires extended – and sometimes a lifetime of – care. If you were involved in an accident where you are permanently disabled, no matter if it is partial mobility issues, or full paralysis, you deserve compensation for your struggling health and diminished quality of life.
Elder Law and Nursing Home Abuse
Entrusting your loved one’s care with another is a decision you never wanted to make, but out of necessity, you found the best place available for your circumstances. Discovering physical abuse or negligent care in the nursing home in which your elderly family member is staying is devastating. Do not allow yourself to feel responsible for this disgusting and inappropriate behavior. Allow our elder law attorneys to examine the facts, interview the staff, and hold the administration available for their role in these terrible environments.
Semi-Truck and Tractor Trailer Accidents
Standard semi-trucks and tractor trailers are 53 feet long, nine feet high, and almost nine feet wide, and can legally carry up to 45,000 pounds of freight. Driving beside one of these giant trucks is enough to make you switch lanes and create distance between you and the monstrous vehicle. In our representative experience, being involved in an accident with a semi-truck is as haunting as it sounds. Severe injuries, totaled vehicles, and even death are all common results of a semi-truck accident in Bend, OR. At Dwyer Williams Cherkoss Attorneys, PC , we have successfully secured millions of dollars in recovery efforts for our clients that will allow them to take their injuries and healing successes one day at a time. If you have been involved in one of these terrible accidents, we can help you and your family too.
Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries
Slip, trip and fall injuries are not as simple as a clumsy misstep. These are very serious accidents can be the result of wet floors without warning signage, ripped, curled, or poorly maintained rugs in entryways of shopping malls and restaurants, or even uneven sidewalk or stairs that have gone unrepaired by their owners. Poorly lit parking lots and stairwells all pose severe injury risks to our clients, and the jarring nature of these falls can lead to ligament tears, muscle strains, broken bones, and neck, spine, and head injuries. Never blame yourself for a fall that occurred outside of your home. Seek help from our attorneys to understand your legal options.
Workers’ Compensation Cases
Getting hurt at work is a very serious cause for contacting an attorney. Your employer must follow Workers’ Compensation requirements after an accident, and once you seek medical care, your company is going to immediately try and make the claim go away, or worse – blame you. You deserve better. You may not be able to go back to work right away or fulfill your previous position at all, and your medical costs should not come out of your pocket. Allow us to provide you with a full account of your rights after being hurt at work.

Our wrongful death attorneys know that money is the furthest thing from your mind after a loss, but it is the best way to enact justice for your loss. The negligent person, party, or company that caused your loss must be held accountable for several reasons, including ensuring this never happens again. We will outline your financial losses and pursue your case while you take the time you need to heal.
