Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Portland, Oregon
A personal injury from an accident can be devastating. Car accidents happen often and there are over 31,000 people injured because of them in Oregon each year. A vast number of these accident victims are injured due to frankly unpredictable events. Reckless and irresponsible drivers cause countless accidents each year- something that any driver can be a part of.
Any type of car accident is dangerous, but when multiple vehicles are involved, the chance of injury greatly increases. An injury alone can be unpleasant and debilitating, but it can also be very costly. Aside from the costs of medical bills, missing work due to hindered mobility can also have a significant financial impact on victims and their families.
One of the leading causes of accidents is speeding. Reckless driving, drunk driving, and distracted driving are also all common factors in accidents. Even if you are found partially responsible, you may still be entitled to compensation to help pay for medical costs and lost wages.
Oregon is one of the most accommodating states for personal injury claims. If you are injured in a car accident, make sure that you know your rights and what is the best course of action to take. If your injury was the result of someone else’s negligence or a situation that you are partially responsible for, you may be able to file a claim for financial compensation. An experienced Portland car accident lawyer can help guide and support you throughout this process.
After a car accident, it’s important to know that there is still hope to continue going about your life. There are plenty of potential growth opportunities and you should never give up. Consult with a lawyer to help recover your finances so you can focus on healing and getting better.
