Car Accidents in Oregon
Every day, automobile accidents occur in the state of Oregon that have devastating impacts on the lives of those involved. We see countless victims hospitalized due to the negligent and reckless actions of other drivers. When drivers are speeding, they run the risk of losing control of their vehicles and crashing into others. When drivers are impaired, they are unable to make responsible decisions while controlling their vehicles. When drivers fail to yield to others, they run the risk of crashing into other cars that do have the right-of-way. And finally, when drivers disregard traffic control devices at intersections, they can cause devastating rollover collisions involving vehicles that do have the right-of-way to travel.
Any negligent action can have serious consequences for those who are sharing the road. Every day, innocent people are hospitalized with traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and other serious injuries that require extensive medical care. When victims are harmed as a result of these accidents, they often have legal options that can help them move forward.
