Car Accidents in Oregon
Tens of thousands of people are left with injuries due to motor vehicle accidents in the state of Oregon. These crashes can often be attributed to some type of negligence performed by drivers behind the wheel. Some of the most common causes of crashes in our state that we see include:
- Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way to other drivers sharing the road
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are distracted by their cell phones, radios, or other people in their vehicles
- Drivers who are speeding or traveling above the posted speed limits
When innocent people are involved in accidents due to the negligence of others, they are often left with significant injuries that demand emergency medical care. We see many people suffer from spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones. Many people have to go through extensive medical care and spend weeks off work to recover.
