Car Accidents in Oregon
In the state of Oregon, we see tens of thousands of people left with injuries every year due to motor vehicle accidents. There are many instances where people are harmed in accidents as a result of drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. Sometimes people suffer serious injuries in crashes due to drivers who are speeding, run red lights, and those who failed to yield the right-of-way. When drivers engage in reckless and negligent actions, they place others sharing the road with them at risk of being harmed.
People who are involved in accidents are often left with severely broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even internal organ damage. These and other injuries can be incredibly painful. Unfortunately, they are often debilitating as well. People who suffer from these and other severe injuries often have to spend significant time in recovery.
