Car Accidents in Oregon
Every day, we see countless people in Oregon affected by negligent and reckless drivers. Although we want to believe that we are able to travel along our state’s roadways without any issues, continue to see people harmed in accidents due to the negligence of others. When drivers fail to yield to others, travel well above the speed limits, and drive while using their cell phones, they place the lives of other people sharing the road at risk.
Unfortunately, we see thousands of people injured every year due to drivers who engage in these and other reckless and negligent actions while operating their vehicles. When people suffer serious injuries and accidents, they often have to go through emergency medical care. When people suffer from traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, they often have to spend several months going through therapy and can end up spending more than $100,000 on medical expenses.
