Car Accidents in Oregon
Accidents in Oregon often result in devastating injuries for those involved. We see many people left with spinal cord injuries that impact their ability to walk forever. We also see a significant number of people left with traumatic brain injuries, which severely alter their mood and leave them with endless pain and suffering. Unfortunately, any type of serious injury from a car crash can require extensive medical treatment and severely alter your life.
Although it would be nice to see no accidents take place, we continue to see a high number of crashes take place due to people who engage in negligent actions while operating their vehicles. Many accidents are entirely preventable. We see people engage in actions like talking on the phone or texting while behind the wheel, eating food, or even speeding. These and other acts of negligence often result in devastating injuries that leave innocent people harmed.
If you have been hurt as a result of a car crash, you might have the ability to file a personal injury claim against the party who is responsible. In order to prevail, you must be able to show that the person you are filing a claim against engaged in some type of negligent action. This can be done by proving that a driver was impaired, distracted, or engaging in other reckless acts behind the wheel.
After proving that the person was negligent, you must be able to prove that they caused the accident and that your accident left you with damages. When it comes to personal injury claims, medical costs, lost earnings, and even vehicle repair costs are damages that victims often suffer from. These are all recoverable with a successful lawsuit. Reaching out to a Gresham car accident lawyer as soon as possible can help to ensure you have the strongest case possible to prove negligence and to help you recover compensation.
