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 run the risk of being involved in a car accident. Last year in our state, more than 50,000 collisions were reported. 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 by authorities in order to determine which driver should be held responsible.
Following an Oregon car accident, you are likely to have many questions about your future. A crash can mean serious physical injuries along with psychological and emotional pain. The accident may affect each aspect of your life on a daily basis. While things may seem difficult during this time, you should know that you have certain very important 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 circumstances surrounding the accident.
