Every year, motor vehicle accidents throughout our state leave tens of thousands of people with life-altering injuries.

In fact, around 500 people lose their lives each year in traffic-related incidents throughout the state of Oregon.
These accidents often leave bereaved families struggling to move forward. As they attempt to deal with the mental and emotional consequences of an unexpected loss, they are forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on funeral expenses and deal with unanticipated financial repercussions.
When victims are killed unexpectedly as a result of the actions of others, it is crucial that their families seek legal guidance from a qualified wrongful death attorney in Portland as soon as possible.
