Oregon car accident injures woman in Northeast Portland

Oregon officials are continuing to investigate a recent crash that happened in the early morning hours of a weekday. The Portland-area car accident injured one woman. The victim had to be taken to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center for treatments after the incident.

Early reports indicate that a Prius and another small car were on busy Northeast Sandy Boulevard around 6:30 a.m. For reasons that are as yet unclear, the drivers of the cars collided in the eastbound lanes. The impact caused the Prius to rollover, trapping its driver. The woman had to be extricated before being taken to the hospital.

Oregon police will now likely work to learn exactly why the cars collided. As they do, they will seek to review eye witness information as well as any physical evidence that may exist. The information gained may not only help them to decide if traffic or criminal charges are appropriate, but also who was at fault for the injury car accident.

If the injured woman was not the person who caused the car accident, she may be able to make a claim against the other driver under Oregon personal injury laws. These laws are intended to help those who have suffered due to the actions of another individual. Though details of this recent car accident are few, there are many on Portland roadways each year that result in someone being injured and requiring financial assistance to help with their recovery. It is these people that personal injury laws are intended to help.
