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.
Not only are bereaved families forced to endure the emotional challenges of losing a loved one, but they are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on funeral expenses, tackle burial costs, and move forward without an income they have grown to depend on. When victims lose their lives in accidents due to the negligence of others, it is crucial that their families seek the legal guidance of a wrongful death attorney in Portland as soon as possible. Working with a reputable and responsive legal team is a family’s best bet for recovering.
