It is extremely difficult to prepare for the impact that a motor vehicle accident will have on your life. Many people involved in accidents are left with severe physical injuries that make it difficult to perform various tasks. Regrettably, thousands of people across Oregon are harmed in accidents every month.
Motor vehicle accidents are often caused by some form of negligence. In fact, nearly four out of five accidents are a result of driver error. We see many people left with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even broken bones as a result of accidents. Many crashes are caused by drivers who are speeding, those who run red lights, and drivers who engage in other reckless actions while operating their vehicles.
