Wilsonville Personal Injury Attorney


Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, but the pain and financial stress they cause can last a lifetime. Lance D. Youd, Attorney at Law, understands Wilsonville personal injury cases. He’s represented countless accident victims just like you in the claims process, and he knows how to negotiate with insurance companies to offer fair compensation.

Negotiating a settlement following an accident is never easy. Insurance companies spend countless hours thinking of ways to deny valid claims, and they will refuse to admit liability even when the evidence is clear. To protect yourself, please call our law firm today to schedule a case evaluation.

How Our Personal Injury Attorney Will Help Your Case

Accidents cause all sorts of expenses. Medical bills arriving in your mailbox are only the most obvious. But many victims need their vehicle repaired or replaced, and they can’t count on returning to work until their injuries heal. Even minor accidents can cause thousands of dollars—money you simply don’t have.

Negotiating a settlement on your own is never a good idea. Instead, lean on our proven track record of success:

  • Experience. We have negotiated with countless insurance companies in Oregon and understand their tricks they use to avoid liability.
  • Attention to detail. Settlement negotiations require a careful review of the evidence to determine fault. We can marshal all the facts in your favor and present them in a convincing way to the insurance companies.
  • Compassion. We listen sympathetically as our clients describe the challenges they face. Fortunately, we can seek compensation for pain, emotional anguish, and other hard-to-quantify losses caused by an accident.
  • Determination. We don’t quit until we have negotiated the fairest settlement possible for our clients.

5 Steps to Take After an Accident

If you were hurt in an accident of any sort, there are certain steps you should take to improve the odds of receiving a settlement. Let’s look at 5 steps every accident victim should take:

  1. Document the accident. If you were injured in a car crash, take photographs of the scene. Zoom in on the vehicles to show where they are dented or scraped.
  2. Get witness contact information. Witnesses are sometimes the key to a case. They can help provide testimony as to what happened and who is to blame.
  3. Call the police after a crash. The police should respond to the accident scene and create a police report.
  4. Seek prompt medical care. Call an ambulance if you are badly hurt; otherwise, head to the hospital as soon as you finish up at the scene of the accident. Tell a doctor where you are feeling pain and follow your doctor’s treatment plan.
  5. Never give a recorded statement. An insurer might request that you provide a recorded statement. Avoid doing that until you hire an attorney.

If you follow these steps, you put yourself in the best position to receive compensation for medical care, lost income, pain, emotional distress, and property damage.
