Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Oregon
Thousands of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Oregon every year. In many instances, pedestrians suffer severe injuries in these crashes. Due to the fact that pedestrians have no protection during accidents, they are more likely to suffer severe injuries. Unfortunately, many victims end up passing away as a result of their injuries.
When innocent people lose their lives in pedestrian accidents, their families are often left behind to deal with the mental, emotional, and financial impacts. Families often have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical care, funeral arrangements, and various other damages they face. Unfortunately, many families are deprived of a source of income that they have grown to depend on.
