Motorcycle Accidents in Portland, Oregon
Motorcycle accidents across the Portland area leave hundreds of people injured each year. These incidents often cause overwhelming pain for riders as they deal with life-altering injuries. In some cases, injured parties are left with broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries that impact their lives immediately and long-term. These injuries are not only mentally and physically painful, but they require extensive treatment as well. Regrettably, costs for care come at an extreme cost.
Although most people believe that crashes are caused by motorcyclists, this is not always the case. In fact, the majority of traffic-related incidents involving motorcyclists are caused by negligent drivers sharing the road. When people engage in distracting behaviors, speed, operate their vehicles while impaired, or engage in other reckless actions, they place the lives of others at serious risk. When people sustain injuries in accidents, through no fault of their own, they may have legal options available to help them recover and hold negligent parties accountable.
