Car Accidents in Oregon
Each year, countless people across the state of Oregon are severely harmed in traffic accidents on our roadways. In many cases, innocent parties suffer debilitating and life-changing injuries due to driver negligence. Some of the most common causes of vehicle wrecks in our state include:
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol: This is one of the most commonly cited reasons for car accidents in the state of Oregon. People who get behind the wheel after drinking or taking drugs are putting themselves and others at risk.
- Speeding: Many drivers choose to ignore posted speed limits, particularly on highways and interstates. This can lead to tragedy if they lose control of their vehicle or collide with another driver who is going the speed limit.
- Reckless driving: This includes behaviors like tailgating, weaving between lanes of traffic, or running red lights and stop signs. These actions put everyone on the road at risk and often result in serious accidents.
- Failing to yield the right-of-way: This is a leading cause of accidents at intersections because it can result in a collision with oncoming traffic. It’s important to be aware of your surroundings when driving and yield to other vehicles when appropriate.
