Car Accidents in Oregon
Every year, tens of thousands of people are injured as a result of crashes that take place in Oregon. In many cases, these accidents are caused by drivers who are negligent. We see countless people hospitalized for severe spinal cord fractures, internal organ injuries, and severe burn injuries as a result of their accidents.
In many cases, victims suffer debilitating injuries as a result of accidents caused by drivers who are negligent. Common causes of car crashes that we see here in Oregon include:
- Impairment: Drivers who are impaired or unable to make responsible decisions while operating their vehicles. Impairment can impact a driver’s ability to make responsible decisions, recognize colors, and react in time to avoid a collision.
- Distractions: Anything that takes a driver’s attention off the road can be incredibly dangerous. Unfortunately, we see countless people harmed as a result of accidents caused by motorists who are texting on their phones, eating, or engaging in other actions that are distracting.
- Running red lights: Running red lights is a very common cause of crashes here in the state of Oregon. When drivers run red lights, they place everyone at the intersection at risk of being harmed. This can result in serious T-bone accidents or other types of collisions that result in serious injuries.
