Car Accidents in Oregon
A vehicle crash can change your life in an instant. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people across the state of Oregon are left with debilitating injuries due to traffic accidents each year. Many of these accidents are preventable. We see countless people left with debilitating injuries due to driver negligence. Leading factors in vehicle collisions across our state include:
- Distracted driving: There are several things that can be distracting to drivers behind the wheel. This can include anything from texting and driving to simply not paying attention to the road.
- Impaired driving: Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is extremely dangerous and often leads to car accidents. In Oregon, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. Unfortunately, countless people cause severe accidents while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Speeding: When drivers ignore the posted speed limits and choose to go too fast for conditions, they put themselves and others at risk for an accident. Accidents that occur at high speeds often result in more severe damage and injuries.
