Motor vehicles are heavily relied on to get to and from destinations. This is evidenced by the constant traffic experienced on the roadways in Oregon and elsewhere. And while numerous motorists follow the rues of the road while traveling on the road, the reality is that some fail to uphold their duty to drive safely. They choose to text on their phone, drink and drive or even drive while fatigued. These situations present many dangers on the roadways, sometimes resulting in a serious or even fatal car accident.
No one is ever fully prepared to deal with the aftermath of a car crash. While one might have auto insurance, he or she is likely thinking that they will never have to use it. Unfortunately, minor and major automobile collisions occur everyday, and some victims are significantly injured in these incidents. It can quickly become overwhelming to not only deal with the pain associated with the injuries suffered but also the damages incurred by the collision. Many are not prepared to manage life after a car accident caused by a negligent driver.
