Car Accidents in Oregon
Being involved in a vehicle collision comes with overwhelming mental and physical consequences. This is especially true in cases where people are left with injuries. Regrettably, over 100,000 collisions occur within our state each year. \When victims incur broken bones, spinal cord damage, and traumatic brain injuries, they are forced to undergo immediate and long-term treatment. Not only are victims left to suffer physically from their crashes, but their families suffer as well. They are often forced to endure stacking medical costs and devastating financial consequences from lost wages and property repairs.
When victims are injured in accidents, they may have legal options available to help them recover. In cases where people sustain injuries in accidents, due to the negligence of others, they may be entitled to compensation to help cover the financial burdens they face moving forward.
