Pedestrian Accidents in Oregon
Car accidents take place in Oregon every day that leave people with serious injuries. These accidents add up to hundreds of tens of thousands of people harmed on our state’s roadways annually. There are several types of accidents that continue to take place time after time. Some of the most common include:
- Pile-up / multi-car accidents: Whenever there is a collision involving more than one vehicle, it is considered a multi-vehicle accident. In some cases, a series of subsequent accidents occur at the same time involving multiple vehicles, which is referred to as a pile-up. There are a variety of factors that can contribute to these accidents. The majority of the time, these accidents happen in congested settings while divers are focused on something else. Intoxication, excessive speeding, and other careless behaviors can all play a role as well. Probably
- Left-turn accidents: These accidents generally occur when a vehicle turns left at an intersection without checking for oncoming traffic. In many cases, these accidents involve other vehicles. However, bicyclists, motorcyclists, and pedestrians are often involved in accidents involving drivers who turn left without looking.
Either of these types of accidents can have serious consequences for the victims involved. Regrettably, victims of crashes are often left with debilitating spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and severe compound fractures. Dealing with the aftermath of an accident can be incredibly challenging. Thankfully, crash victims in Oregon have legal options available to help them protect their best interests.
