Pedestrian Accidents in Oregon
Each year, we see thousands of people left with significant injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents in our state. There are many instances where pedestrians suffer injuries due to the negligence of drivers. When drivers engage in reckless and negligent actions while operating their vehicles, they place the lives of others sharing the road at risk of being harmed. Unfortunately, we see a significant number of people suffer severe injuries due to drivers who are speeding, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or distracted while operating their vehicles.
Pedestrians are more likely to suffer critical injuries and accidents due to the fact that they are entirely unprotected. These victims are at an increased chance of suffering catastrophic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and even broken bones.
