Car Accidents in Oregon
Motor vehicle accidents across the state of Oregon leave tens of thousands of people injured every year. Unfortunately, more than 100 car accidents resulting in injuries take place in the Portland area each day.
People are often harmed in accidents due to a variety of reasons. However, the number one factor in Oregon motor vehicle accidents is drivers who are traveling at an excessive speed. When drivers are speeding, they are less likely to maintain control of their vehicles. This is particularly true when traveling along curved roadways or during inclement weather conditions.
When people suffer injuries and accidents, they are often required to go through emergency medical care. We see many people suffer from broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries as a result of their accidents.
