Injury Accidents in Oregon

A car accident in Oregon takes place very suddenly and unexpectedly. While we all travel in vehicles multiple times per day, we never expect that we might be involved in a serious and life-altering crash. Unfortunately, these accidents happen each day on Oregon’s roadways and they can affect innocent victims. More than 25,000 people were injured in collisions that took place in Oregon last year according to the Oregon Department of Transportation. Most crashes involving injuries took place because of the negligence of at least one driver involved.

After a car accident in Oregon, you should speak with an experienced attorney right away. You will probably receive a call from the insurance company asking you to provide a statement on how the accident occurred. Instead of talking with the insurance adjuster, it is best to obtain legal representation. The insurance company’s goal is to settle the case as quickly and cheaply as possible and to minimize your recovery. Your attorney will fight to maximize the settlement that you receive and to ensure that your legal rights are completely protected.
