It's Almost Never a Question of Fault

If you or a family member has been injured in an auto accident or car accident in Salem, Oregon contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at the Youd Law Firm in Salem, Oregon. We handle all auto accident claims, including:

If you’ve been injured in a rear-end collision it can take months or even years to understand the full extent of the injuries and the impact they will have on your life. Most victims of a rear-end collision experience a stiff neck or injury and may think they are not seriously injured, however, symptoms can linger or show up much later. If not properly diagnosed and treated early-on more severe or permanent damage can occur — that’s why it’s critical to seek medical help immediately.

There’s good news and bad news. When you’ve been rear-ended, there’s rarely a question of fault. In nearly every case, the following driver was driving too closely, not paying attention, or both. While they probably won’t argue about fault, the insurance companies will still be ready for a fight. They’re going to do their best to give you as little compensation as possible. It’s important to consult an experienced accident attorney before you settle with an insurance company to ensure all damages, including future medical expenses, wage loss, and pain and suffering are covered. Lance D. Youd has the experience you need to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your losses and suffering.

LUCKY TO FIND LANCE

We were so lucky to find Lance Youd as our attorney after our motorcycle/car accident in 2005 (and again in ’09). An uninsured driver caused us to crash our motorcycle and fled the scene. Our motorcycle was totaled and I spent a week in the hospital. The driver of the car had been drinking. Lance made sure that our insurance company covered us since we had “full coverage” auto insurance on our motorcycle. If not for Lance, we wouldn’t have gotten the hospital bills paid or the value of our motorcycle replacement. THANK YOU LANCE!
