Injury Accidents in Oregon

Car accidents occur in Oregon each day, multiple times per day. In our state, thousands of people are hurt every year when they are involved in traffic crashes. An accident can take place anywhere at any time and can occur on a quiet neighborhood street or along a busy and heavily-traveled highway. Motorists should always exercise care and caution when traveling in order to reduce their risks of being involved in a crash. Still, some accidents are not avoidable.

If you are one of the many individual victims of an Oregon car accident, it is important to fully understand your legal rights. Under our state’s law, car accident victims can receive compensation for their injuries. This includes the right to receive payment for your pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills and possibly more. While many people mistakenly believe they can handle their own case, it is always best to talk to a car accident attorney in order to ensure that you receive the compensation that you need and deserve. The insurance company does not work for you. The adjuster is more interested in obtaining a quick settlement that saves money for the company than they are in paying you what you truly deserve.
