Drunk & Impaired Driver
“I am a past client. Unfortunately someone T-Boned me and caused injuries to myself and totaled my vehicle. My personal attorney recommended Corson and Johnson. I am glad they did! Lara accepted my case and worked tooth and nail to help me through a difficult time of lost revenue and injuries. If you are looking for an ethical, hard working firm then look no further.👍👍”
“The Corson & Johnson Law Firm handled my case with professionalism and the all important personal touch — every step of the way. It was priceless to be able to turn over the responsibility for calling medical and insurance providers – they handled everything in such a way that I never stressed about the outcome of my case or monetary issues. I’d highly recommend.”
“On August 10th, 2003, just four days after my 28th birthday, my life was permanently altered by a reckless and violent, drug-induced, drunk driver who crashed head-on and into my car. Everyone in the vehicle was injured, with my injuries being the most severe. I suffered a complete spinal cord injury, which changed everything in my life in an instant.
Nearly 17 years later, I remain paralyzed from the chest down, and on that day, I not only lost my ability to walk but my ability to do the field engineer work I once loved so much. In these unpredictable and devastating moments in life, it is essential to surround yourself with people you can trust. My physical rehabilitation was a long road, and as if that wasn’t hard enough, I also had to figure out how I was going to support myself financially.
As someone who worked in a physically demanding job, with a lot of international travel, I had no idea how to move forward with my life or what I would be capable of achieving in the future. I can honestly say, I feel so fortunate to have had the legal guidance of Don Carson. Don not only professionally represented me, but he was relentless in settling an agreement that would help assist me financially. He put his heart and soul into helping me achieve the best outcome and, in many ways, offered tremendous emotional support that went way beyond his call to a legal duty.
My reliance upon him, both professionally and emotionally, should not be understated. With his expertise, I was able to receive a financial settlement for my lifelong medical bills as well as a path forward to make a living and successfully support myself. Don is not only a brilliant lawyer; he is honest and trustworthy and committed to doing the best for his clients, even in the most challenging circumstances. With Don at the helm, you will not only have the most capable legal guidance but someone who cares about your overall well-being. I give him my highest recommendation.”
“Corson and Johnson exceeded my expectations of a personal injury lawyer. Lara was very thorough throughout the case and successfully worked towards a fair settlement.”
“Don Corson and his team of incredible people (Wendy and Stacy particularly) worked so hard over the last two years on my case. Their detail orientated and careful attention to all documentation made my case much stronger ! Don was a God Sent! He really was more than an attorney, more like a close caring friend and for that I am so grateful. My particular case involved a drunk driver and I wasn’t sure how things would fair just as I read so many statistics about Oregon being the lowest pay out state for car accidents etc. Don made sure my case was paid special attention to and delivered a fantastic review of what occurred during my accident and after. I’m so happy Don was my attorney and highly recommend anyone in the Eugene area seeking a GRADE A strong attorney and staff to look no further than Corson and Johnson law firm !! “
“Lara Johnson and her staff were wonderful to work with!!! You can clearly see that she honestly cares about her clients! Her compassion and understanding made a world of difference for my son, who was her actual client, after being hit by a drunk driver. She has a vast knowledge of the types of injuries, both the temporary and permanent, and how they will likely affect the rest of his life. Of course, as with any attorney, this is a job and it is also about making money.
However, she also wanted to make sure he received the largest amount possible due to the fact that even after almost 2 years of various treatments, he has permanent injuries that will greatly affect the rest of his life. Not only did she get him the settlement, they got him a Lump Sum to begin with, as he still needs a lot of dental work done and wanted to get a few things, but set the rest up in an annuity. He was super happy knowing she was looking after future.
Especially since he is a 19 year old kid who could easily blow through a lot of money, and is concerned that people may try to take advantage of him knowing he has a brain injury that greatly affects his memory and decision making. Not only is it very obvious she truly does cares and showed a great deal of compassion, he is actually sad that he won’t need to see her anymore. He said he is going to miss her, and everyone else there at the office.
Unfortunately, under very unfortunate and heartbreaking circumstances, I recommended her to a very close family friend. I know she will do everything she can to help his family, especially under such tragic circumstances, and show every bit of compassion she showed to my son. So, not only have I already, I will recommend her to anyone I know who finds themselves in the need of her services. We were recommended to Lara to begin with, and I would call her immediately should any of us have anything like this every happen to our family. I greatly recommend her to anyone who may find themselves in similar circumstances!!! Without a doubt! 100%!!!!”
“I was extremely pleased with the work they did for me with my personal injury suit. The results were better than expected. I was always kept “in the loop.” If you need a compassionate, hard working law firm to help you with your legal needs, look no further.”
“Four years ago I was badly injured in a car wreck caused by a very drunk underage driver. Because of multiple surgeries, I spent an entire year unable to care for myself, first at a hospital, then at a rehabilitation facility, and later at a foster home. The outcome didn’t look favorable for me but Don Corson and his firm never gave up. They went after the drunk driver and the party responsible for providing the alcohol to a minor. They were able to recover all of the funds available. The combination of that recovery and negotiating reimbursement obligations managed to secure a sizable settlement for me. Don Corson is not only an unusually capable attorney, he’s a very nice person who truly cared about my future. I’m so fortunate to have had Don in my corner.”
