Car Accident Injuries

Most car crashes are unnecessary, the result of violation of established safety rules of the road.  While these are almost always not intentional, they are also not truly “accidents,” because they were preventable.   As the Oregon Driver Manual puts it, “the word ‘accident’ is misleading.  If you crash because you were distracted, tired, or not driving defensively, it is a preventable crash, not an accident.” Severe losses from collisions can change lives forever.  We’ve helped hundreds of individuals and families who have been seriously or permanently injured in car collisions. 

The Right Lawyer CAN Make All the Difference after a Car Crash

Our personal injury lawyers and experts know how to build a case with the right facts and evidence, securing the futures of families across Oregon. There’s no up front cost to you, and we don’t get paid unless you do.

The Corson & Johnson Law Firm has earned the highest recognition for ethical conduct and professional excellence, including U.S. News & World Report Best Law Firms.  Attorneys at the firm have been named in Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, the American Board of Trial Advocates, and Don Corson is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.

A settlement or verdict in favor of an injured person takes into consideration multiple harms and losses, such as:

  • Lost wages

  • Medical bills

  • Pain

  • Future care needs  

  • Disability and limitations

If the case goes to trial, a jury may sometimes also award punitive damages, meant to punish the responsible party for endangering the lives of others. On average, injury survivors who have an attorney nearly triple the amount of money they get from insurance than those who do not, according to the Insurance Research Council.

Injured in a Car Wreck? Insurance Companies Will Try to Get Your Private Medical Records
