Few things are as frightening as experiencing a car accident while driving with children in the vehicle. Many people fear their children being injured in such an incident far more than they fear injuries to themselves.

However, the injuries could necessitate medical bills that ultimately lead to an auto accident claim being filed in an Oregon civil court.
