Types of Car Accidents

We’ve helped victims injured in all sorts of accidents, including:

  • Rollovers. A car can trip on soft gravel or another object potentially flipping on its side or hood. Unbuckled occupants can suffer devastating injuries and even be thrown from the vehicle.
  • Head-on collisions. When two cars collide head on, the results are often tragic. Head-on collisions stem from fatigue, chemical impairment, or reckless driving. Ice and snow can send a car flying into oncoming traffic.
  • Sideswipes. When parallel cars collide, it’s a sideswipe accident. These often happen on the highway as one vehicle is trying to merge.
  • Side-impact crashes. Also called T-bones, these accidents occur when one vehicle rams the side of another.
  • Rear-end collisions. A rear-end collision happens when one car slams into the car in front of it. We see rear-end collisions frequently in parking lots and at intersections.
  • Single-vehicle accidents. A vehicle can crash even if it didn’t collide with another car. Instead, it might have been forced off the road or the driver lost control due to a road defect.

If you’ve been involved in a wreck, chances are we can help. As soon as you receive medical care, please contact us to learn more.

Common Car Accident Injuries

The human body suffers horrible injuries when involved in car accidents. Even if you are wearing a seatbelt and taking defensive measures, you can still suffer from:

  • Burns
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Abrasions
  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries
  • Chest contusions
  • Nerve injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal column damage
  • Amputations

We recommend heading to the hospital immediately after a crash. If you are in too much pain to move, request an ambulance to come pick you up; otherwise, we recommend you go once you finish with the police at the accident scene.

We Fight for Fair Compensation

Seeking medical treatment for you injuries is the first recommendation we make to our clients. Even when the at-fault party is uninsured, your auto and health insurance will kick in to help pay for your mounting medical bills.  Getting compensation for your loss is what we are expert at collecting.  We often negotiate expenses individuals are not aware is possible to do.  Hiring Lance Youd who has 30 years of legal experience will make a difference in the financial outcome of your case.

We have helped submit claims against:

  • Negligent drivers
  • Reckless drivers
  • Negligent mechanics
  • Car manufacturers
  • Municipalities in charge of the roads

Our experience allows us to carefully calculate your losses. We will then seek compensation for:

  • Medical care, including future care
  • Income loss, including diminished earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Other consequential losses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

How much is fair? Everything depends on your unique situation. Someone with a few scrapes and moderate car damage will receive less than someone with catastrophic injuries like amputation or brain damage. Insurance companies always strive to pay as little as possible, and it’s your attorney’s job to make a strong argument for why you deserve more. We know the most common tricks insurers use, and we’ll counter them as we fight for more money.

Decades of Experience in Car Accidents

Attorney Lance D. Youd brings deep experience to his cases. For three decades, he has helped accident victims navigate the insurance process. The insurance companies in Oregon know him by name and have sat across from him in many car accident negotiations.

There are many hurdles that crop up that make reaching a settlement difficult. One is fault. The insurance companies might blame you for your own accident. Oregon law allows someone who is negligent to seek compensation provided they don’t bear the majority of the blame. Our legal team can gather evidence that shows how the accident happened and why your fault (if any) is minimal.
