Car Accidents in Oregon
Every year, more than 150,000 car accidents take place in the Oregon and Washington area. More than 13,000 of these accidents take place right here in Multnomah County. These incidents often leave people with life-altering injuries that require emergency medical care. In some instances, people have to go through emergency surgery and spend weeks in recovery. Going through therapy and rehabilitation is not only painful but an extremely costly process.
An overwhelming number of vehicle collisions in the state of Oregon are a result of driver error. 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. When victims are harmed in accidents as a result of the actions of other drivers, it is crucial that they reach out to a car accident attorney in Portland as soon as possible.
