Car Accidents in Oregon
Vehicle collisions take place far too often in the state of Oregon, in fact, these crashes leave tens of thousands of people with injuries every year. Although many people engage in safe driving practices while using our roadways, we see a significant number of people who are harmed in auto collisions due to the negligence of others. Some of the most common causes of crashes we see in Colorado include:
- Drivers who are reckless when operating their vehicles.
- Drivers who use their cell phones and are distracted by other means.
- Drivers who travel at a high rate of speed.
- Drivers who are impaired by alcohol or drugs while operating the vehicle.
- Drivers who fail to yield to other people sharing the road.
These and other negligent actions continue to harm innocent drivers and passengers across our state every day. In many cases, victims are left with serious broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries following their accidents. Any type of severe injury can require extensive medical care and can have an overwhelming impact on the lives of victims and their families.
