How to Obtain Compensation for a Personal Injury

The fact that you were injured in an accident doesn’t mean you automatically deserve compensation. Instead, you need to build up a case to prove someone else was at fault for your injuries. Each personal injury case is unique, but there are some common steps to take:

  1. Receive medical treatment promptly.  This is not only good for your case by helping to  document your injuries, but is also helpful in identifying specific injuries and treatment you may need. 
  2. Report the accident. This can include calling the cops if you’re involved in a car accident, as well as reporting the accident to your insurer.
  3. Compile evidence. Your evidence should answer the questions “What happened?” and “Who caused this accident?” For example, it is helpful if you take pictures of the scene of the accident.
  4. Document your injuries. We recommend hanging onto medical bills, receipts, and medical records.  The attorney and his staff are also able to help collect medical records.   It is helpful to take pictures of your visible injuries for evidence.
  5. Open an insurance claim.  Once you hire our firm, we become the main point of contact for all involved while  you take the time to rest and heal.
  6. Your attorney will negotiate a settlement on your behalf with the insurance company. It is in your best interest to be cleared from a doctor’s care before negotiations begin. 
  7. It is a rare situation where a lawsuit needs to be filed and taken to trial, but not every case can settle prior to the two year statute of limitation running out.   It is common for these lawsuits to be settled out of court due to the experience and skills of Lance D. Youd who is a courtroom advocate. 
  8. It is very common for individuals to settle with an insurance company too soon.  The underinsured portion of an automobile policy is often not considered and therefore leaves settlement money on the table.  Lance D. Youd, will make sure all possible ways for recovery are determined before settling a case.

Compensation for Your Injuries

Accidents are expensive. Many people lose tens of thousands of dollars through no fault of their own. For this reason, bringing a personal injury claim is necessary to protect your financial future.

Attorney Lance D. Youd can seek compensation for:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Past, present, and future lost income or earnings
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering

The amount you receive will depend on the facts of your case. In Oregon, you can receive compensation provided your fault is “not greater” than the fault of all defendants combined. In sum, you can be up to 50% to blame for an accident but not an inch over. Even so, your compensation is reduced by your degree of fault, so we always look closely at this fact.
