Fatal Car Accidents in Oregon
Every year, motor vehicle accidents throughout our state leave tens of thousands of people with life-altering injuries. Although we want to believe that everyone is able to overcome their injuries, this is not always the case. Regrettably, there are many instances where people succumb to their injuries. In fact, around 500 people lose their lives each year in traffic-related incidents throughout the state of Oregon.
When victims lose their lives in accidents, their families are often left to bear unimaginable mental and emotional consequences. To make matters even worse, families are often forced to go without a reliable source of income while having to spend tens of thousands of dollars on end-of-life arrangements.
Although there is nothing that can be done to bring back those taken away from us due to these accidents, many families may have legal options available to help them secure compensation to help move forward.
