Car Accidents in Oregon
Auto crashes in Oregon leave tens of thousands of people harmed every year. There are many different types of car crashes that can occur in Oregon. Some of the most common include:
- Rear-end collisions: These typically happen when one driver is following another too closely and then rear-ends them when they stop or slow down.
- Head-on collisions: These can be particularly dangerous, as they often involve a high rate of speed and can result in serious injuries or even death.
- Side-impact collisions: Also known as “T-bone” accidents, these occur when one vehicle hits another directly on the side. These can be especially dangerous for occupants of the vehicle that was hit on the side, as there is often little protection from the impact.
- Rollover accidents: These can occur for a variety of reasons, but are often caused by a vehicle hitting something on the road, such as a guardrail, and then flipping over. Rollover accidents can be extremely dangerous, especially if the occupants are not wearing their seatbelts properly.
