Car Accidents in Oregon
Portland car accidents send thousands of people to area hospitals with injuries every month. Here in Portland, we see our unfortunate share of these unexpected collisions impact the lives of our residents. When victims are involved in accidents, they are often left to deal with overwhelming mental and physical consequences. Going through constant medical treatment for painful injuries is mentally and financially exhausting. In some cases, victims have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on hospitalizations, surgery, doctor appointments, and other medical care they require for their injuries.
The unfortunate truth is that more than 8,000 people need some form of medical care after being hurt in a crash. Many collisions are caused by drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions while operating their vehicles. Driving impaired, driving while distracted, and speeding are three of the top ten causes of crashes. However, these and other acts of negligence continue to impact the lives of people across our state daily. When victims are harmed in crashes caused by negligent motorists, they should reach out to a car accident attorney in Portland as soon as possible.
