Oregon Car Accidents

A car accident in Oregon can be a life-altering event. Each time we get behind the wheel of a vehicle, we take a risk that a crash will occur. Last year in our state, there was more than 50,000 reported traffic crashes on the roadways. While not every accident will result in injuries, many of them will. In fact, thousands of innocent motorists will be injured when they are involved in a crash with a negligent driver. Some types of negligent driving behavior include reckless driving, speeding, driving while impaired, and texting while driving. Each crash must be carefully investigated in order to determine the cause.

Following an Oregon car accident, you may have more questions than you have answers. A crash can mean serious physical injuries, psychological pain, and the inability to work and earn a living. While things may seem difficult during this time, you should know that you have valuable legal rights. Under Oregon law, accident victims have the right to bring a claim against the other driver when that driver was at least partially at fault for the collision. The value of your case depends upon the specific factors of your accident,
