Car Accidents in Oregon
Car accidents are a daily occurrence here in the state of Oregon. We always see victims left with serious injuries due to motor vehicle accidents that are caused by negligence. Just because we see these accidents take place at such a high rate does not mean that it is possible for victims to prepare for the overwhelming consequences that they bring.
Every day, people are forced into area hospitals where they have to go through extensive medical treatment for broken bones, internal organ injuries, and even traumatic brain injuries. Any type of severe injury can dramatically alter your life and force you to deal with overwhelming pain and suffering. In most cases, victims deal with significant financial consequences as well.
If another driver’s negligent or careless actions have caused you harm, you can file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for some of the damages that you face. After your crash, you have the ability to demand compensation for:
- Any lost wages that your accident has caused you.
- Any resulting medical care costs that you have following your accident.
- Any long-term treatment costs that you require for your injuries.
- The cost to repair or replace your damaged vehicle.
- The loss of enjoyment of life.
- Mental and emotional suffering.
