    Portland auto accidents attorneys

    If you have been involved in an auto accident, your own insurance company will pay the medical bills you incur from your injuries and treatment. Personal injury protection is mandatory coverage under all Oregon auto insurance policies. Personal injury protection benefits cover you for the first year following your auto accident and pay up to $15,000 for your reasonable and necessary medical care. Benefits can be higher depending on your insurance coverage, but that is the minimum in Oregon. Also, if you suffer lost wages and are off work for 14 consecutive days, Personal injury protection will pay you wage loss for up to 52 weeks. This benefit is available for time loss at any time during the two years following the accident. So, if you have surgery at some point and are off work, then Personal injury protection would pay for your wage loss even if you were off work later than one year from your accident. Personal injury protection wage loss pays up to $3,000 per month or 70% of your lost wages, but no more than $3,000 per month for polices written or issued on and after January 1, 2010. Personal injury protection coverage prior to that was only $1,250 per month. If you have an accident, file a report with the Department of Motor Vehicles within 72 hours. Keep a copy of that report for your records. Also, notify your insurance company immediately so that they can send you an application for Personal injury protection benefits. Then, call us Portland auto accident attorneys can help make sure your bills get paid and the providers accept what Personal injury protection is mandated to pay and that you do not end up with bills that should have been paid by Personal injury protection. Any additional wage loss you have that is not covered under your Personal injury protection can be obtained from the other driver at the time we the Portland auto accident attorneys settle or go to trial on your claim. In Oregon you have two years from the date of the auto accident to settle your claim or to file your lawsuit. If you fail to act within that time frame, your claim is barred by the statute of limitations.

    In America, a leading cause of death is auto accidents and motor vehicle collisions. According to national statistics, approximately 6,000,000 auto accidents occur each year, causing close to 40,000 fatalities. It is estimated that 1 out of every 5 Americans will be involved in an alcohol-related auto crash at some point in their lives according to the NHTSA (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration). The NHTSA compiles statistics regarding motor vehicle accidents and some of results are alarming.

    For example, in 2001:

    # 3,000,000 people were injured in motor vehicle accidents.
    # 41,300 died in motor vehicle accidents.
    # 40% of the fatalities were alcohol related.
    # 2,600 children under the age of 15 were killed in motor vehicle accidents.
    # 7,500 young drivers (16-20) were involved in fatal crashes.
    # 3,000 motorcyclists were killed.
    # 4,700 pedestrians were killed.
    # Improper use of seat belts accounted for 63% of the fatalities.

    As you can see, the auto accident injury statistics in America are staggering. Injuries from auto accidents are the leading cause of death for people from the ages of 6 to 33 years old.
