Fighting for Compensation after an Albany Personal Injury

Personal injuries are typically bodily injuries a person suffers in a crash or other accident. Oregon law allows anyone hurt by the negligent or reckless conduct of another person to seek compensation. Unfortunately, you’ll face many hurdles along the way. Most people need an Albany personal injury attorney to put them in the best position to receive justice.

Lance D. Youd, Attorney at Law, has the experience you need during this stressful time. He can immediately begin building your case for compensation and handle all communications with insurance companies. Please contact Youd Law to get started.

We Have Broad Experience in Albany Personal Injury Accidents

Our law firm can help anyone hurt in one of the following accidents:

  • Car accidents
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Wrongful death accidents

In the usual personal injury case, someone failed to act with sufficient care, and you were hurt in the process. For example, a motorist might have struck you because she was looking at a cell phone. A business failed to inspect its aisle and you slipped on spilled liquids. Or a fatigued truck driver slammed into your car..

Personal Injuries are Painful & Expensive

Our clients have suffered some terrible injuries in these accidents:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Contusions
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Burns
  • Fractures
  • Crush injuries
  • Amputations
  • Organ damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Paralysis

Whoever caused the accident should pay for this care, as well as for your pain and suffering.

We Seek Fair Compensation

One question many people ask is how much compensation they can receive. This is a difficult question to answer. In many ways, each personal injury case we take is unique. There are specific facts which determine the amount of compensation any victim might receive, and we need to know them before we begin to talk numbers.

We look at everything, including the severity of your injuries, your medical expenses, and whether you missed work. We can also seek money for any damaged property, like a car damaged in a crash.

Under Oregon law, we can also seek money for things like pain, suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life. These harder-to-define losses are real—and you deserve compensation to try and make up for them.

Comparative Fault & Albany Personal Injury

Accidents are rarely black-and-white. Sometimes, your own negligence contributed to an accident. Fortunately, you can still seek compensation provided you are not more than 50% at fault. If you are, then Oregon law bars you from receiving anything.

When victims are 50% or less at fault, their compensation is diminished proportionally. So you might be 30% to blame, in which case you receive 30% less.

Comparative fault arises in many cases, with each side blaming the other for the accident. Our firm is prepared to forcefully argue on your behalf when we determine that you are not more than 50% at fault.
