Helping Victims of Dallas, OR Car Accidents

Car accidents are extremely expensive, and many people struggle to return to their normal lives. If you were hit by a negligent driver, you might be surprised at how complicated the claims process is. Each year, hundreds of people are hurt in Oregon car accidents, but not everyone gets the compensation they deserve. Attorney Lance D. Youd is an experienced Dallas, Oregon car accident lawyer who can fight for fair  compensation on your behalf. If you need legal assistance, or if you have questions, contact him today.

Negligent Drivers Are a Danger on the Road

Most car accidents are caused by a careless driver. When this person fails to operate their vehicle as a reasonable person would, they are negligent under the law.

There are some common examples of negligence:

  • Distracted driving
  • Texting and driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving too fast for conditions
  • Tailgating
  • Failing to yield to other drivers
  • Running a red light
  • Drifting over the centerline
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Drunk or high driving

If we can prove a driver negligently caused your accident, we can take your case.. Our firm is skilled at finding all relevant information for your claim. For example, if the driver was fatigued, we might find work records showing he just got off a 14-hour shift. Or we could search for dashcam or other video footage that shows how an accident unfolded. Instead of assuming you don’t have a case, meet with a qualified Dallas, OR car accident lawyer to review.

Let our firm analyze your accident to uncover the cause. Without this investigation, your odds of success are much lower.

Compensation for Dallas, OR Car Accidents

Our clients suffer serious injuries, often leaving them in immense pain. We have helped those suffering from concussions, broken bones, burns, sprains, and back injuries cover the costs of medical treatment and other expenses.

Please share the following information so we can properly value your claim:

  • Medical bills. You can receive compensation for doctor visits, testing, hospital overnights, surgery, and rehab, among other care.
  • Paystubs. You can receive compensation for lost income if your injuries are so serious you can’t work. We will use your paystub to calculate the amount you should receive.
  • Self-employment ledgers and contracts. Even self-employed people can receive compensation for missed work, but they need evidence of how much they anticipated earning before the crash.
  • Car repair estimates. You can also receive money to get your car fixed or replaced.

Our clients should also receive money for pain, suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, and disability. This compensation is much harder to estimate. Still, share with our legal team how your injuries have impacted you so that we can then negotiate for a fair amount.

Uninsured Motorists & Hit-And-Run Collisions

Receiving compensation is difficult in some situations. For example, the person who struck you could have no insurance. Alternatively, they might have fled the scene and you can’t find them.

Oregon drivers should have uninsured motorist insurance, called UM. This insurance is available for a hit and run or any collision with an uninsured driver. 

We can negotiate with your UM insurer so that they take your claim seriously.
