Car Accidents in Portland, Oregon
Being harmed in a motor vehicle collision comes with overwhelming mental and physical consequences. Unfortunately, more than 100,000 accidents occur within our state each year. Tens of thousands of people are left with injuries that require some form of medical treatment. 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 both victims and their families are often forced to endure stacking medical costs and devastating financial consequences from lost wages and property repairs.
Although we want to believe that every driver on the road operates their vehicle in a careful and considerate manner, this is far from the truth. In fact, driver negligence, carelessness, and distraction are some of the leading causes of accidents in Oregon and throughout the entire country.
