Focus and Dedication
It takes a degree of commitment to represent injured workers. Workers' compensation is a complicated area of law that is constantly changing. To be effective, a lawyer has to be vigilant for administrative and judicial developments and proactive in preparing or appealing claims.
Peter O. Hansen directly descended from longshoremen and long ago decided to become a lawyer to protect the rights of workers. He combines 34 years of immersion in Oregon workers' compensation with the work ethic of his father and grandfather. Attorney Evohl Malagon offers years of experience representing thousands of injured clients in federal and state courts. Mr. Malagon is a seasoned professional known for his strong advocacy speaking to the legislature and lobbying on behalf of injured workers. When you select the Law Offices of Hansen Malagon, you will gain the benefit of our partners' 70 years of combined experience representing thousands of injured workers.
Illuminating Your Rights
Since 1980, the Law Offices of Hansen Malagon in Portland has helped clients in Oregon secure full disability benefits for work-related injuries. This is the primary focus of our practice, but we have also handled hundreds of personal injury accidents and Social Security disability claims.
Our mission is not only aggressive litigation, but educating clients about an intimidating and complex process. We believe that knowledge is power — clients who understand their rights are better able to cope with their situation and make informed decisions when taking on a system stacked in favor of employers and the insurance companies.
Three Things to Consider
- All workers' compensation lawyers are paid the same. Our fees must be approved by the Workers' Compensation Board. So there is no reason to hire a less experienced attorney.
- An attorney with sophisticated knowledge of Oregon's work injury law can usually secure better benefits and medical coverage than you would get on your own, even after attorney fees. Mr. Hansen is particularly skilled at identifying additional claims beyond workers' comp.
- We don't get paid unless your benefits are approved or your disputed claim is settled. So it costs the same to hire us immediately after your accident as it does to hire us after your claim is denied.
- Some attorneys have a "do this/sign this" approach. At the Law Offices of Peter Hansen, we are always willing to answer your questions. And we present clients with options, not orders.
A Brighter Future After a Work Injury
