MEDFORD AUTO ACCIDENT INJURY ATTORNEYS
According to ODOT’s (Oregon Department of Transportation) most recent statistics, over 45,000 auto accidents occurred statewide last year; that means that over 4,000 auto accidents happen in Oregon every month! Over 25,000 accidents caused severe and moderate injuries, and – tragically – 305 of them ended in death. None of us get into our car planning to have an accident, but the fact is that it happens – even to safe drivers, and it can happen to you! According to 2012 data, “driver error” is the most commonly cited reason for auto and truck accidents. Some chronic errors include:
- Not yielding right of way
- Driving too fast for road conditions
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while tired
- DUII – driving under the influence of intoxicants
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident – even if the injury may not seem serious at first – you need to contact a skilled personal injury attorney as soon as possible; time is of the essence! You might be faced with loss of wages, long-term rehabilitation, and chronic pain and suffering – not to mention exorbitant medical bills. Sometimes, there is irreversible disability, which can require expensive long-term treatment or life-long medical care. You may be entitled to recovery for the expenses that resulted from the accident, and any stress and suffering you and your loved ones have endured.
