Car Accidents in Oregon
Every year, more than 150,000 car accidents take place in the Oregon and Washington area. More than 13,000 of these accidents take place right here in Multnomah County. These incidents often leave people with life-altering injuries that require emergency medical care. In some instances, people have to go through emergency surgery and spend weeks in recovery. Going through therapy and rehabilitation is not only painful but an extremely costly process.
Although there are many instances where crashes end in minor injuries, a significant amount of crashes sent victims to local hospitals where they must remain for several days or even weeks at a time. When victims suffer severe injuries, they often face immediate and long-term consequences.
