Pedestrian Accidents in Oregon
Pedestrian traffic is incredibly common here in Oregon. Many people find it to be a safe and effective alternative to taking vehicles through busy city roads. Despite the number of safety measures we have in our state that are designed to protect pedestrians, we continue to see them victimized at an alarming rate. In fact, hundreds of pedestrians are left with critical and life-altering injuries after vehicle collisions across our state every year.
Although we want to believe that drivers have the best interests of pedestrians in mind, this is not always true. The majority of pedestrian accidents in Oregon are a result of negligent and reckless drivers. Countless pedestrians are injured by drivers who are texting or talking on phones, eating, changing their radios, engaging in conversations with others, or conducting various other reckless and negligent actions. Given the fact that pedestrians are more vulnerable to vehicles in collisions, they are more likely to suffer critical and life-threatening injuries.
In many cases, victims are left with neck and back injuries, TBIs, and other devastating injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Not only are numerous victims left with overwhelming pain and suffering, but the financial burdens imposed on them are often challenging to handle for both victims and their families. After suffering injuries in an accident, victims should contact a pedestrian accident attorney in Portland to protect their legal rights.
