Offering breathtaking views of the nearby Cascade mountains, the picturesque city of La Pine, Oregon is located along a stretch of the US Highway 97 and is home to just over 1600 residents. Founded in the 19th century, the area experienced rapid population growth and remained quite prosperous until a sudden increase of interest in nearby Bend, Oregon (located 30 miles southwest) and a failed community water initiative stagnated this growth.
While the area remained relatively quiet for years, La Pine has recently enjoyed an upswing in residential growth, partially due to now being commonly recognized as a “commuter town” to Bend. It has also become known as a recreational hub, as the Little Deschutes River that runs through the city provides numerous opportunities to indulge in outdoor activities such as swimming, fishing and paddling.
Serving the People of La Pine
Almost ¼ of the residents in the area were below the age of 18 years old while well over half were between the ages of 25 to 64 when the 2010 census was taken. Given La Pine being closely located to to Bend, Oregon which affords ample employment opportunities and the area’s comparable lower cost of living, many younger families have chosen the city to settle in and enjoy.
Unfortunately, this also means that the parents and caregivers of these children often face a 60 mile round trip commute to Bend on a daily basis, putting them at the daily risk of being involved in an auto accident.
Why Insurance Alone May Not Be Enough
All too often individuals place their full trust in their auto insurance company and rely on them to determine a “fair” compensation for their loss.
Drivers need to remind themselves that their insurance adjuster isn’t their friend. In fact, these individuals are strictly in the business of selling your case for pennies on the dollar. Their job isn’t to protect you health, but rather protect the insurance company’s wallet by helping them spend as little as necessary and selling you low balling settlement offers.
If you have been involved in a car accident, your settlement is likely worth a lot more than you realize. Physical and psychological injuries can have a long term impact on your health and in ways you may not fully realize until days after the accident. You may suffer wage loss, hefty medical bills, and lengthy pain and suffering.
