Car Accidents in Oregon

According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, there are more than 50,000 reported car accidents across our state every year. These accidents take place each day and occur in all types of areas, including busy highways, city streets, and quiet rural areas. The odds of being hurt in a car accident in our state may seem remote but it is important to remember that accidents can occur suddenly and without warning. Drivers cannot control when they will come into contact with a negligent driver and should always be aware of the possibility of an accident.

If you find yourself the victim of an Oregon car accident, you are not alone. Every year, thousands of motorists are hurt in crashes and many of these crashes take place due to the fault of someone else. Speeding, impairment, reckless driving, distraction and impairment are among the common causes of crashes in Oregon. When an innocent motorist has been affected, the motorist could be entitled to reimbursement for their damages. This includes the right to compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, medical bills and possibly more.
