Keizer has seen impressive growth recently, with the population now twice as large as it was 30 years ago. With so many people moving in, traffic has only increased—and so have car accidents. Every week someone gets struck pulling out of a driveway, driving along the street, or racing along River Road.
If you’ve been injured in a wreck, a Keizer car accident attorney is a beneficial asset to have. Our legal team can jump in and review whether your case is strong enough to bring a personal injury claim. Contact Attorney Lance D. Youd today.

Can You Sue for Compensation?
Car accidents can lead to serious injuries, including fractures, burns, whiplash, pinched nerves, and head or back injuries. Many accident victims cannot work because they experience intense pain. Our clients need compensation to help get them through financially, especially if they were the main breadwinner in the family.
An accident victim can sue anyone who is at fault for the collision. In most cases, this is another driver who struck them due to negligence. Legally, you can sue if someone owed you a duty of care and breached that duty by:
- Passing illegally
- Running a red light
- Refusing to yield
- Failing to maintain their vehicle
Some accidents are obvious, but fault might be confusing or shared in other cases. Oregon allows accident victims to sue if they were negligent themselves, but your compensation will be reduced.
