Auto Accidents in Oregon
Unfortunately, accidents can be difficult for anyone. They can make the already tough situation a lot worse and often the injuries sustained make it more challenging to recover. In Oregon alone, over 3 million accidents happen each year, and we see 27% of those result in injury each year. Many of these accidents are caused by irresponsible and reckless drivers.
When there is more than one vehicle involved in a car accident, it is not unlikely that someone will get hurt. This could result in both their physical as well as financial stability being affected. Missing work can have serious financial consequences and add undue stress to the victim, and their loved ones.
There are many reasons that accidents happen. Speeding, reckless driving, and drunk driving are just some examples. Even if an accident isn’t entirely your fault, you could still be financially liable for one at a later date.
Oregon is one of the best states to file suit if you were injured in a car accident. If you want fair compensation, it’s important to hire a lawyer, as they will know the local court system and can provide essential litigation services.
