Oregon Car Accidents

Car accidents in Oregon happen on a daily basis. While no one ever wants to think about the possibility of being involved in a crash, the risk is very real each time we get into a vehicle. Drivers may be able to control their own actions while driving but they cannot control the actions of other drivers. Unfortunately, negligent motorists exist all around us and these drivers place others at risk when they drive carelessly and without regard for everyone else’s rights. Negligent drivers account for thousands of reported injury crashes in Oregon every year. These drivers should be held accountable for their actions whenever possible.

Under Oregon law, car accident victims are afforded certain legal rights. This includes the right to receive valuable compensation following the crash. If the accident was not your fault, you should speak with an attorney in order to ascertain your rights as soon as possible. The insurance company will want you to speak with them regarding the crash. These are the situations where accident victims end up settling for far less than what they should as the insurance company is looking to save money for themselves.
