Fatal Car Accidents in Oregon
Every year, motor vehicle collisions occur in the state of Oregon that take the lives of innocent people. In fact, hundreds of people end up dying as a result of accidents that take place on our roadways. The majority of accidents that we see are entirely preventable. Leading factors in these fatal collisions include:
- Distracted driving: This is one of the leading causes of fatal automobile accidents. Distractions can include texting, talking on the phone, eating, and any other activity that takes the driver’s attention away from the road.
- Reckless driving: This includes behaviors such as tailgating, weaving between traffic lanes, and not using turn signals when turning at intersections, switching lanes, or exiting roadways.
- Speeding: Driving too fast can be dangerous and increases the risk of accidents as it often results in drivers losing control of their vehicles and crashing into others.
