Davis Rothwell is a leader in the field of first-party automobile claims.

Uninsured, Underinsured, and Personal Injury Protection claims require an experienced defense counsel who can navigate complex statutes and case law. Our firm has significant experience defending insurers in first-party uninsured, underinsured, and personal injury protection claims, and our attorneys frequently provide training to other attorneys and claims handlers on these subjects.

We represent insurer interests from the initial investigative phase, conducting examinations under oath, and providing coverage opinions, through final litigation of a first-party case. Our experience helps insurers avoid common pitfalls, and helps them navigate through Oregon- and Washington-specific rules. We also assist insurers in recovering benefits to the extent allowed by either state.


We litigate UM/UIM and PIP cases in Oregon and Washington, both in an arbitration forum and in state courts.

In addition to the firm’s decades of experience litigating these claims in arbitration and state court, our attorneys’ practice in this area has contributed to the Preeminent “AV” rating by Martindale Hubbell. Several of our staff frequently teach continuing legal education courses related to UM/UIM and PIP claims, and provide insurer-specific training on these topics.
