Injury Crashes in Oregon
When an Oregon car accident takes place, it often happens very suddenly and unexpectedly. Not all car accidents will result in injuries, however, many of them will. In Oregon, it is estimated that about one-third of accidents will also involve at least one injured victim. The injuries in Oregon car accidents can range from bumps and bruises to more serious injuries such as broken bones and major trauma. Sadly, many innocent victims will be affected due to crashes on our state’s roadways every year.
According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, about 8,000 people will suffer injuries when they are involved in car accidents this year. If you or a loved one have been hurt in an Oregon car accident, you should seek medical treatment right away. Many injuries do not appear immediately obvious in the aftermath of the crash. If you do not go to the doctor, the injuries can worsen without your knowledge and can later turn into a much more costly and painful experience.
After you have sought medical treatment, you should then consult with an experienced Oregon car accident attorney. Your attorney can advise you on what legal steps to take to handle your case in the proper manner. Many people make the mistake of handling their cases on their own and this can lead to costly mistakes. It is best to have a lawyer by your side who can handle the case while you focus on your healing and recovery.
