Oregon car accident causes personal injury to several on I-5

Oregon officials are working to determine the exact details of a car accident that happened on Easter Sunday. Though details were few shortly after the crash, it is clear that the crash resulted in personal injury to several people, though specifics as to the degree of injury have yet to be published. Now, those who have been injured may find that they are able to make a claim against the driver or drivers deemed to be at fault under our state's laws.

The personal injury laws of Oregon are available to car accident victims who have suffered as a result of the negligent actions of another. These types of claims typically seek compensation for monetary damages. Some items of potential damages are pain and suffering, lost wages and the cost of medical care. The awards are intended to help those who have been injured to recover, at least financially, from an accident.

In the current car accident case, at least two cars were said to have significant damage. The crash closed a part of Interstate 5 north of Salem. The resulting injuries required as many as 5 emergency response vehicles to respond to the scene to assist injured victims.

Oregon's personal injury laws can come to the assistance of victims of car accidents cases such as this one. As the official investigation continues, police will likely make a determination as to which party or parties were at fault for this incident. Any party so identified may face liability for any actions found to be negligent from injured victims.
