Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Oregon
Hundreds of people end up losing their lives in motor vehicle accidents every year in the state of Oregon. In some instances, travelers are utilizing motorcycles at the time of their accidents. Motorcyclists are more likely to suffer severe injuries in accidents because they often have little more than helmets to protect them.
Unfortunately, the majority of motorcycle accidents take place due to negligent drivers. When drivers switch lanes without looking, run red lights at intersections, and failed to yield to others, they placed the lives of other people sharing the road at risk. When victims lose their lives in accidents, they often leave behind friends and families who are completely torn apart by their sudden and unexpected loss.
