Car Accidents in Oregon
Every year, tens of thousands of accidents occur on our state roadways. Many of these accidents leave victims with injuries that forever change their lives. After being injured in a motor vehicle accident, injured parties have the ability to file personal injury claims against those who are responsible. These claims are designed to give victims the money that they need to cover the losses and damages they face. The damages that a victim can recover include:
- The costs of any immediate care, such as hospitalization or surgery.
- The money that you require for the expenses related to long-term care and future medical demands. These may include rehabilitative and therapeutic services, medical devices, and maybe even more.
- The funds necessary to either fix your damaged vehicle or purchase a new one.
- The money you need to help alleviate the pain and suffering that you have endured as a result of your injuries. This is calculated based on the negative effect of your injuries and the impact that you receiving medical care for your injuries has or will have on your standard of living.
To recover fair compensation for your lawsuit, you must be able to demonstrate that the driver was at fault and negligent. This can be done by showing that they were under the influence, distracted, speeding, or engaging in another action that caused the accident to take place. You must then prove the amount of damages that the accident has caused you. Seeking guidance from a Portland car accident lawyer can help you build your case against the defendant and help to ensure you get the maximum compensation possible.
