Five people were injured in a two-car crash on July 9, 2010, at the intersection of Highway 211 and Kropf Road near Molalla, Oregon. Police are continuing to investigate the crash, according to an OSP news release.

Around noon, a car driven by Jonaton Rios, 18, of Woodburn, was traveling east on highway 211, attempting to turn left onto SE Kropf Road, when it collided with a westbound car driven by Anthony Michael Foix, 64, of Oregon City.

If you have been in a car crash, the moments and days after the accident are the most important. First, you must seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you think your injuries are minor, you should have a record of anything after the accident in case the pains become more serious. Second, either you, a friend or family member, or a qualified Oregon car accident attorney, should collect evidence from the accident scene. Evidence can disappear quickly, so doing this while your loved one is in the hospital is of extreme importance. We understand that you may not want to do this while you or your loved one is in the hospital, so you may want to ask an Portland personal injury lawyer to do it for you.

The months after an accident are important as well. There are time limits to filing a claim if you have been in an accident. And sometimes you can’t go back to work, so you start to worry about paying medical bills and wage loss. These are all stressful things, and it doesn’t help that the insurance company won’t leave you alone, but they won’t help you either. So please, do not hesitate to call us or request a free copy of our book, 7 Common Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Oregon Accident Case. Our website has helpful advice, and what we don’t cover there, we will be more than happy to answer ourselves.
