Everything you worked for – your car, your health, your peace of mind – feels under attack. And with every passing minute, your chance of getting the help you deserve is slipping away.

Client Review: "...If I could go back in time I probably would have his assistance since day 1 after the accident. When you think you can handle everything by yourself, please consider it twice and ask for a professional support..."

Evidence Is Disappearing – Act Now

We don't want to scare you! Unfortunately, the insurance companies use that against us. If you were in an accident the proof of what happened and who's responsible is fading away. Delayed treatment destroys far too many cases.

Here are some examples of evidence that needs to be secured as soon as possible:

  • Injuries: Bruises and cuts often heal significantly within days of an accident. Take photos immediately to document the full impact of the injuries.
  • Vehicle Position: The final position of the cars tells a crucial story. Before help arrives, well-meaning witnesses or others might move the vehicles, obscuring vital evidence.
  • Witness Memories: Details fade fast. What color was the light? What did the other driver say? Witnesses who seemed clear at the scene can become less certain with time.
  • Security Camera Footage: Footage on busy Hillsboro roads like Tualatin Valley Hwy is often deleted within days. This evidence can be vital in proving liability.
  • Vehicle Damage: Scratches and dents provide proof of the accident's force. These get repaired quickly, erasing important evidence.
  • "Black Box" Data: Modern cars often record crucial data like speed and braking. This can be overwritten or requires specialist retrieval before it's lost.

This is all evidence, that if lost, the insurance company will use against you to minimize their payout. Don't hand them that advantage!

The Hidden Costs & The Insurance Company Trap

That "minor" neck pain... the soreness you're sure will go away... these could be the first signs of injuries that will disrupt your life for years.

We see this all the time!

Car accidents are notorious for causing long-term problems that lead to thousands in medical bills, missed work, and lost quality of life. Maybe it requires surgery down the road. Maybe chronic pain limits your ability to do the job you love or simply play with your kids.

Insurance companies want you to focus on the here and now – a quick repair bill and a small check. They're not on your side. A Hillsboro Car Accident Lawyer is! The Insurance companies are gambling that you won't realize the true scope of your injuries until it's too late to fight for the full compensation you deserve.

Don't fall into their trap!

We work with medical experts to understand the potential long-term costs – not just today's doctor's visit, but the physical therapy, the potential for future procedures, and the impact on your ability to earn a living. It's about protecting your future, not giving the insurance company an easy win.

Client Review: "...I had no experience or any knowledge being in my situation, which was very intimidating! But they did all the hard work and made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process, they were my backbone..."

S.C. Google Review

However, we don't stop at just medical bills. You must know the other forms of compensation you're rightfully owed!

The True Cost of an Accident: Beyond Medical Bills

The costs of a car accident extend far beyond doctor's visits and hospital stays. They seep into every corner of your life:

  • Lost Income: Time off work for recovery means lost wages, using up precious sick time, or the fear of losing your job altogether. Those missed paychecks create a cascade of stress – paying rent, buying groceries, providing for your family.
  • Long-Term Disability: Severe injuries can change your earning potential for years, possibly even permanently. The career you built may become impossible, forcing you into a lower-paying role or leaving you unable to work at all.
  • Ongoing Medical Care: The initial treatment may just be the start. Physical therapy, specialist appointments, and medication could add up to staggering costs down the line, creating a revolving door of bills and worry.
  • Emotional Toll: The pain, the flashbacks, the sleepless nights, the constant anxiety about the future – it takes a toll on your mental health and spills over into your relationships.
  • Burden on Loved Ones: Family members often become caregivers, sacrificing their own time and energy to help you heal. The stress ripples outward, impacting everyone you love.

Our Hillsboro Car Accident lawyers understand that an accident doesn't just break your car or your body; it breaks your sense of security. Our role is to fight for compensation that addresses the full impact so that you can reclaim your future.

It's Not Just About the Money

Yes, we fight for every dollar you deserve. But money doesn't heal wounds or turn back the clock. The true impact of an accident goes deeper:

  • Lost Time: The hours agonizing in waiting rooms, struggling through physical therapy, or missing out on family milestones – that time is stolen from you.
  • Pain & Suffering: The throbbing aches, the sleepless nights, the flashbacks that jolt you awake – these leave invisible scars.
  • Diminished Quality of Life: Maybe it's never being able to fully enjoy your favorite hobbies, struggling with daily tasks, or constantly being reminded of the accident through lingering pain. These losses diminish your everyday happiness.
  • Stress & Uncertainty: The endless stream of bills, the confusing insurance forms, the fear of what the future holds – it's mentally and emotionally exhausting.
  • Damaged Relationships: The strain of your injuries can ripple outward, taking a toll on your loved ones. The frustration and fear can lead to short tempers, distance, and a sense of isolation.

We understand that no settlement will make this like it never happened. A Hillsboro Car Accident lawyer fights for compensation that addresses the full picture, so you can reclaim your peace of mind and rebuild a life you love without the constant shadow of this accident.

Don't Fight This Alone

Insurance companies are complex machines designed to minimize payouts, not help accident victims. They have teams of lawyers and adjusters working to protect their profits, not your well-being.

Here are some examples of the tools they use against you:

  • Confusing Legalese: Insurance policies and legal documents are intentionally filled with jargon and loopholes. They're designed to discourage you from fully understanding your rights. One misinterpretation could cost you thousands.
  • Lowball Offers: They know you're hurting and stressed. Their first settlement offer will sound tempting, but it's often a fraction of what you're truly entitled to.
  • Delay Tactics: If they can't rush you into accepting a quick lowball they drag out the process. Insurance companies hope you'll give up and accept whatever they offer. Every delay weakens your case and gives them more leverage.
  • Unequal Resources: You're facing a corporation with deep pockets and vast experience in fighting every type of claim. Without adequate legal representation, you're at a severe disadvantage.

Attorney Reed Johnson

We level the playing field. We know their tactics and how to counter them. We meticulously collect evidence, consult with medical specialists, and negotiate aggressively to secure the maximum compensation possible.

Hillsboro Car Accident Lawyer On Your Rights

You also have a right to compensation for other harms that you suffered that are harder to quantify. People often talk about “pain and suffering” damages in car crash cases, but it is more than that. You deserve, under the law, to be compensated for more than just experiencing pain. Oregon law also considers the interruption and interference in your life.


You have a right to be compensated if you were injured due to someone else’s negligent or intentional conduct. Compensation includes being reimbursed for any medical expenses, lost wages, or damage to your vehicle. However, more potential compensation exists.

Photograph of Attorney Ralph Gzik

You will never get back the time you have to spend at the doctor’s office, or the blood and sweat you expend in physical therapy recovering from a serious injury. However, you can be compensated for it by the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

The car accident lawyers at Johnson Law also know what juries in the metro area have awarded in similar cases. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.

Hillsboro Oregon Special Court Rules and Procedures

Some pages are blank as the judges have no special procedures in their court. Additionally, these pages can have vital contact information for court staff.

Civil Case Arbitration <$50,000 - Hillsboro, OR

One thing a Hillsboro car accident attorney will inform you is that if your civil case is seeking damages under $50,000 it is subject to mandatory arbitration. Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution mechanism. Ideally, it provides quick and cost-effective resolutions to cases.

In arbitration, you do not go before a judge during a trial. Instead, cases are decided by an arbitrator. There is no jury. The arbitrator makes an award based on the evidence and testimony presented at a hearing. This award can then be turned into a formal judgment by the court. However, either party may appeal the decision to the court and request a trial.

Hillsboro Car Accident Report

If you were involved in a car accident you most likely have a legal obligation to report the accident to the DMV. If you are unsure of your situation feel free to call us to talk to a Hillsboro car accident attorney for a free consultation.

These are four situations when you MUST report the accident to Oregon's DMV:

  1. Damage to any vehicle is over $2,500 (even if your vehicle was the only one in the crash);
  2. Damages to any vehicle is over $2,500 and any vehicle is towed from the scene;
  3. Injury or death resulted from this accident; or
  4. Damages to anyone’s property other than a vehicle involved in this accident is more than $2,500.

It is important that you file a report when required. The DMV can suspend your license otherwise. Do not skip this vital step. Additionally, please know that a report submitted by the police to the DMV does not negate this requirement.

There are also times when you may want to report your accident to the DMV even if not required. If you were in an accident and the damages were less than $2,500, you can report to DMV if the other party doesn't have insurance. Be sure to clearly note on the accident report that it doesn't meet mandatory reporting criteria.

If you were involved in a traffic crash you may obtain the first page of the Oregon Traffic Crash report free of charge. This is done by completing a Public Records Request Form. This report is useful for insurance companies and attorneys involved in your case.

If you're unsure about car accident reporting for your accident call us to ask a Hillsboro car accident attorney about your case.
