Injury Accidents in the State of Oregon.
Auto accidents are a fact of life and something that can happen to anyone at nearly any time. Even though auto accidents are such a common occurrence, not many people ever assume it will happen to them, nor are most people prepared to deal with the injuries that can occur.
Luckily for Oregonians, Oregon is one of the most accommodating states for personal injury claims. The state of Oregon sees approximately 31,000 people sustain significant injuries every year from auto accidents. What makes this statistic more unnerving is the fact that many of these victims were not responsible for causing the accident that they were injured in.
Reckless and irresponsible driving is one of the most significant elements of an auto accident, and also the most difficult to be prepared for and react to. Drunk driving, distracted driving, and speeding are all common forms of reckless driving that exist on Oregon roads.
The good news is that even if you are partially at fault in an Oregon auto accident, it is still within the realm of possibilities to receive compensation for whatever damages you have suffered. Consulting with an experienced Oregon personal injury attorney can help you navigate your rights and receive your rightful compensation.
Having a personal injury lawyer by your side is important because injuries have consequences outside of just physical pain. Beyond pain, injuries are also expensive. Expenses like doctor visits, ambulance transportation, surgery, physical therapy, and other costs can quickly add up into a stressful financial burden.
If medical bills and costs weren’t enough, auto accident injury victims often miss out on their normal work shifts. Losing out on wages that a victim would otherwise count on earning, add even more financial stress to an already incredibly stressful situation.
It is important not to allow yourself to feel stuck or trapped in medical debt because of your injuries. Remember that there is always a path forward, and a severe injury does not have to dictate your future.
