Car Accidents in Oregon
Auto collisions across the state of Oregon are taking place more often. Each year, we see thousands of people hospitalized each year with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other life-threatening injuries that demand immediate medical care. In some instances, people have to remain hospitalized for several days or even weeks as they undergo treatment for their injuries.
Although we have many laws in place to protect motorists traveling in Portland and across the state, we continue to see victims harmed due to the negligence of other motorists. When drivers engage in reckless activities while operating their vehicles, they place the lives of others at risk.
In cases where victims sustain injuries in crashes caused by negligent drivers, it is crucial that they reach out to a car accident attorney in Portland as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face moving forward.
