Oregon Car Accidents

An Oregon car accident takes place very suddenly and unexpectedly and can result in life-altering injuries for victims. Additionally, families are affected when their loved ones are injured in an accident. Following the crash, victims often experience anxiety and concern for their future. While this can be a scary time, there is help available.

Under Oregon law, car accident victims could be entitled to receive compensation for their injuries. If the other driver was at least 50% at fault for the crash, then injured motorists can receive a settlement for their medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and potentially more.  The value of your case depends upon a variety of factors.
