Personal Injury in Oregon
Personal injury in Oregon covers physical, mental, and financial injury that results from another person's actions, including car accidents.
Oregon's mandatory insurance law requires minimum liability insurance coverage of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per incident for bodily injury to others. The state also requires at least $10,000 per incident insurance coverage for damage to others' property.
In addition, Oregon requires at least $15,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP), which the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) defines as reasonable and necessary costs of dental, medical, and other expenses for a period of one year after a collision.
For Oregon drivers who get into a traffic incident or collision where there is personal injury to one or more of the people involved, it is advisable to seek assistance from a personal injury attorney.
