What Causes Wilsonville Car Accidents?

advice arrow


One of the biggest cause of accidents is negligent driving. A motorist isn’t paying attention as they should, or they make some careless mistake out on the road. Unfortunately, innocent people get hurt in the process.

Negligence takes many forms:

  • Distracted driving—looking at a cell phone, eating, talking to a child, fiddling with the controls, etc. when you should focus on driving.
  • Impaired driving—being drunk, high on drugs, or impaired by prescription medication.
  • Drowsy driving—being so tired that you might fall asleep or have delayed reflexes, leading to a crash.
  • Reckless driving—passing illegally, tailgating, and speeding, which increase the odds of a collision.

If you have been in an accident and another driver was at fault, you can receive compensation for your loss. Hiring an experienced attorney in Wilsonville will make a difference in the outcome of your case..  Our firm has 30 years of negotiating personal injury cases.  We have helped many clients in Wilsonville and would be happy to discuss your potential case with you.  Personal Injury consultations are Free.

Car Repairs & Medical Bills

Car accidents are expensive. Minor fender benders or dings could cause thousands of dollars in repairs. If you were in the vehicle at the time, you could also suffer serious injuries, even at low speeds. Many of our clients end up in the hospital requiring expensive medical care, including prescription medication or rehabilitation.

We can help you with the stressful management of your case. Our legal team will fight to get compensation for all losses, including lost income, pain and suffering.

Pain & Suffering

After a car accident you may experience a lot of pain and suffer from your injuries.  Under Oregon law, a car accident victim can receive compensation for pain and suffering, which includes:

  • Physical pain
  • Mental anguish
  • Emotional distress
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Inconvenience
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Unlike medical bills or lost income, it’s harder to quantify pain and suffering in monetary terms. Attorney Youd has negotiated thousands of injury settlements and knows how to value your case.  He works with insurance companies every day and will help to maximize the best settlement on your behalf.

We Have the Experience You Need

Obtaining compensation following a crash isn’t easy. There are many questions that arise, and you need evidence to establish who is at fault. Lawyer Lance D. Youd has helped many clients with claims and can handle a claim from start to finish.

Proving negligence is vital to your case.  Attorney Youd is skilled at gathering the evidence to support your case.

The time to begin negotiating a settlement is when  you are cleared from further medical treatment by your physician. Until you have completed your full medical care as well as your rehab, it is best to patiently wait through the entire process so we can negotiate for the best financial return for your loss.  This process in preparing to make a claim can be overwhelming for the injured.  This is why teaming with the Youd Law Firm is your best choice.

Mistakes to Avoid Following a Car Accident

Certain errors can negatively impact your case if you have not hired and expert to negotiate your case. Sadly, we see many people make these mistakes because they were not aware legal process and multiple optins that exist when settling a case.

After an accident remember the following:

  • Avoid fleeing the scene. In addition to being a crime, leaving the scene makes it harder for you to receive compensation. Instead, swap personal and insurance information with the other driver and call the police.
  • Do not give a recorded statement to an insurance adjuster. They might try to trip you up and get you to say something that isn’t 100% true. It’s also easy to misspeak if you are on painkillers or haven’t been able to sleep due to injuries.
  • An attorney has a better chance of negotiating with an insurance adjuster. Your attorney can also file a lawsuit in court when necessary.

If you avoid these mistakes, you can improve the odds of a fair settlement.
