Oregon Car Accidents
In 2019, Oregon experienced more than 50,000 reported car accidents. While not all of these crashes resulted in injuries, many of them did. According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, there were a total of 39,737 people hurt in Oregon car accidents in the same year. Many of these victims sustained serious or life-altering injuries, including broken bones, head trauma, spinal cord injuries, soft tissues injuries, and more. Unfortunately, a large number of affected victims are innocent motorists who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
In most cases, a car accident in Oregon is caused by the actions of a negligent driver. The cause of these accidents will vary, but most often is due to speeding, reckless driving, distraction, impairment, or some other violation of traffic safety standards. Unfortunately, this often means that innocent motorists are killed or injured in car accidents that take place across our state. Following a crash, it is important to have a full understanding of your legal rights. While the accident cannot be reversed, you can take steps that will help you secure your future moving forward.
