Woodburn Personal Injury Attorney


Helping You Get Compensation after a Woodburn Personal Injury

Most accidents that occur daily in Marion County are the result of negligent or reckless acts that could have been prevented.  A driver’s failure to ensure safe driving practices is the cause of the majority of motor vehicle accidents.  If you have been injured in an accident that could have been avoided, you have the right to seek compensation. 

If you have been injured as a result of such a preventable accident, and the other driver is at fault, you have the right to seek compensation.  With the help of a personal injury attorney you have the right to negotiuate a claim with the insurance company or file a lawsuit if negotions cannot be made.. Woodburn personal injury attorney Lance D. Youd can help. His team at Youd Law has decades of experience in dealing with defendants and their insurance companies on behalf of injured clients. We will fight to obtain every dollar you are entitled to under the law as compensation for your ongoing physical, mental, and financial losses following an accident.

Oregon personal injury law covers a wide variety of accident-related claims. Here at Youd Law we represent clients in the following areas:

  • Car accidents
  • Commercial trucking accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Rear-end accidents
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist claims
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Wrongful death

All personal injury claims must be filed within a certain period of time under Oregon law. This is known as the statute of limitations. For most cases, this time limit is two years from the date of the accident that caused the injury. On paper this may sound like a lot of time. But at Youd Law we find that many personal injury claims require a significant amount of investigation and review before a lawsuit can be filed. This is why it is important not to delay in seeking legal advice following a serious accident.

What Compensation Can You Expect Following an Accident?

Plaintiffs in an Oregon personal injury case may seek a variety of damages–i.e., compensation for their losses attributed to a defendant’s negligence. These damages include:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills
  • Lost wages due to missed time from work
  • Reduction in future earning potential due to injuries
  • Costs of repairing or replacing damaged property, such as a car
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

In some cases, Oregon law can limit the amount of damages you can recover. For example, in wrongful death lawsuits, there is a $500,000 cap on awards for pain and suffering and other non-economic damages. There are also limits on how much you can recover in a personal injury lawsuit against a state or local government.
