Car Accidents in Oregon
Each year, crashes across Oregon leave tens of thousands of people with devastating injuries. Although most drivers are careful and considerate, we see countless innocent people harmed as a result of others. There are many causes of car accidents, but some are more common than others. Inattention, distraction, impairment, and speeding are all major contributing factors to crashes.
Common injuries from car accidents include whiplash, neck and back injuries, broken bones, head injuries, and emotional trauma. Many of these injuries can be extremely serious or even life-threatening.
Recoverable damages in an Oregon car accident case may include medical expenses (including future expenses), lost wages (including future lost earnings), property damage, pain and suffering, and more. If the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you may also be able to recover punitive damages.
