Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Oregon
A personal injury accident can be devastating. Car accidents happen every year, and we see more than 31,000 people injured per year because of them in Oregon. Many of these accident victims suffer injuries due to events that are completely out of their control. Irresponsible and reckless drivers cause countless accidents each year- something that any driver can be a part of.
Any kind of car accident can be dangerous, but when two or more vehicles are involved, the likelihood of injury increases. While an injury alone can be painful and disabling, it can also be very costly. Missing out on work can have a negative financial impact and lead to undue stress on victims and their families.
Many different factors can lead to accidents like this. Speeding, reckless driving, drunk driving, and distracted driving are some of the most common causes. Even if you are found partially liable, you may still be entitled to compensation to help pay for medical costs and lost wages.
Oregon is one of the most accommodative states for personal injury claims. If you’re hurt in a car accident, make sure you know your rights and entitlements. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault or that you are only partially at fault for, then you might be eligible to apply for a compensation claim. A Portland car accident lawyer can give legal advice and guide you as to what to do if this happens.
It’s important to know that you can still go about your life and responsibilities even after a car accident. You should not accept defeat and incidents dictate your future endeavors. There are still plenty of growth opportunities and you should never give up even if it means contacting a lawyer to help you get your financial grounding back in order.
