Car Accidents in Oregon
Daily, motor vehicle accidents are reported in Oregon. In many instances, people involved in these crashes are left with serious injuries. It is all too common for victims to suffer from spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones as a result of their accidents.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of accidents that take place in our state are caused by drivers who are negligent. We see many people hospitalized as a result of crashes caused by speeding motorists. When drivers are traveling too fast, they dramatically increase the control of their vehicles and crash into others.
Drivers who fail to yield to other motorists are another common factor in many accidents. These accidents often take place as a result of drivers who fail to yield while switching lanes, turning at intersections, or entering roads from parking lots.
We also see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who are impaired by intoxicants. When drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they may not be able to make good decisions while operating their vehicles. As a result, they are more likely to crash into other people.
When drivers negligently operate their vehicles and cause accidents, it is only right that they are held accountable for what they have done. Filing a personal injury claim against the negligent driver can provide you with the ability to get compensation for some of your damages.
