Car Crash Injuries in the State of Oregon.
Getting injured in an auto accident is not something anyone expects to happen to them. There is a silver lining for Oregonians though, and that is that Oregon is one of the most accommodating states in the country for personal injury claims.
Every year in Oregon, approximately 31,000 people suffer injuries from auto accidents. That’s a lot of people, and it can be a little unnerving knowing that many of those accidents were caused by actions outside of the victim’s control.
Unfortunately, one of the most common causes of auto accidents is the reckless and irresponsible driving of other people on the road. Speeding, distracted driving, and driving under the influence are all common factors in Oregon auto accidents.
Even if you are partially responsible or at fault for an accident in Oregon, it is still possible to receive compensation for your damages. Consulting with an experienced Oregon Auto Accident Lawyer can help you become informed of your rights and entitlements in such a situation,
Injuries can have consequences beyond just the obvious physical pain that victims endure. Injuries can also be, unfortunately, very costly. Between doctor check-ups, hospital bills, surgeries, physical therapy, and other costs, a victim can be left with significant financial burdens.
Beyond the price tag of treatments and medications, there is also the issue of missing work and therefore missing out on wages you otherwise would have expected to earn. Hiring a personal injury lawyer can greatly cut back on the stresses of dealing with insurance companies and trying to figure out how to pay for everything.
