Car Accidents in Oregon
The unfortunate truth is that every year in our state, more than 100,000 collisions occur and often leave people with physical injuries. Broken bones, spinal cord damage, and traumatic brain injuries are just a few of the potentially devastating impacts that can result from these traffic incidents. Furthermore, victims and their families are not only left with physical pain but may also face financial hardship if they have to cover mounting medical costs or lost wages as a result of the crash.
Many serious car crash injuries require both immediate and long-term medical treatment. Depending on the severity of injuries, victims can expect to spend over $100,000 on medical care. Although there are multiple options available for treatment for car crash victims, none of them come with a guarantee of a full recovery. Regrettably, many people are hurt as a result of accidents that are preventable.
Although we want to believe that most drivers on the road will operate their vehicle in a manner that is considerate to your best interest, this is far from reality.
