Car Accidents in Oregon
Each year, auto wrecks in Oregon leave tens of thousands of people harmed. Many victims are left with physical and emotional injuries that cause overwhelming pain and suffering. In many cases, auto collisions that take place in Oregon are a result of drivers who are negligent. Common causes of crashes that we see here in Oregon include:
Speeding: Drivers who are going too fast are particularly dangerous on Oregon roads, as they often cause serious injuries and even fatalities. Drivers are likely to lose control of their vehicles while traveling along curved roadways and in inclement weather.
Impaired driving: Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol are likely to lose control of their vehicles and cause major accidents. Many drunk drivers because crashes that result in severe injuries for those involved. Unfortunately, a significant number of fatal crashes can also be contributed to impaired driving in our state.
Distracted driving: We see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who are talking or texting on their phones. While cell phones and other devices may seem harmless at first glance, they can actually be very distracting when used while driving. Studies have shown that even relatively small amounts of distraction can lead to unsafe behavior behind the wheel.
Failing to yield: When motorists disregard other vehicles sharing the road, they can cause severe accidents that result in serious injuries. This is particularly true when drivers fail to yield to others while switching lanes or turning at intersections.
