Car Accidents in Oregon
Motor vehicle accidents take place for a variety of reasons. In most cases, they are a result of drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions while behind the wheel. Some of the most common causes of crashes include:
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians
- Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol
- Drivers who are impaired by drugs
- Drivers who run red lights and pass stop signs at intersections
- Drivers who are speeding
