Car Accidents in Oregon
Car crashes across Oregon leave thousands of people injured on a monthly basis. Unfortunately, intersections are one of the most common places where these accidents occur. When traffic approaches one location from four different directions, there is an increased risk that someone will engage in some form of negligence that leads to an accident taking place.
Unfortunately, there are many instances where accidents take place at intersections due to negligence. We often see people drive past red lights or stop signs, even though they are designed to tell vehicles to stop and wait their turn. When vehicles proceed through intersections without having the right of way, they can crash into other vehicles that do.
In many cases, people are hurt as a result of accidents at intersections due to drivers who are distracted, impaired, or otherwise negligent.
