Details are few after an incident that happened in the suburbs of Oregon’s largest city. The car accident took place in Hillsboro, outside of Portland. The incident left four victims in need of medical attention at local area hospitals.
Thought there are few details as to what caused the car accident, it is clear that the vehicles were on Oregon Highway 219 just prior to the crash. Police are investigating how the incident happened, though they know that one of the involved vehicles rolled over, ending back upright at the end of the incident. The crash caused the temporary closure of the buy road on which it happened.
The four victims were taken to local medical facilities by helicopter and ground ambulance. Once there, doctors likely assessed the severity of their injuries, though no details have been disclosed. However, all of the car accident victims must now begin the recovery process which, for some, may extend for weeks or even months.
In car accident cases such as this one, it is common for victims to make a claim against the driver deemed to have been at fault for the injuries that were caused. Such a claim could include lost wages, medical costs and pain and suffering. Personal injury laws are intended to assist those who have suffered as a result of the actions of another person. After such a crash, it is important for victims to review the evidence collected by officials to determine if they are able to make a clam for financial reimbursement of damages sustained from a car accident in our state.
