Eugene Auto Accident Injury Attorneys
No one gets into their car in the morning expecting to have an accident, but in 2012, there were almost 50,000 automobile accidents in Oregon; over half of those accidents resulted in moderate to severe injuries, and 305 resulted in fatalities. According to ODOT’s most recent statistics for 2012, the most common reason for truck and auto accidents is “driver error,” and, unfortunately, the same “errors” show up year after year:
• Failure to avoid stopped or parked vehicle ahead (rear-ending)
• Failure to yield right-of-way
• Driving too fast
• Driving too fast for road conditions
• Distracted driving; texting, phones
• Improper lane changes
• Driver fatigue
• DUII – driving under the influence of intoxicants
If you are in an auto accident that is caused by someone else’s irresponsibility or negligence, you could be facing not just huge medical bills, but lost wages, rehabilitation, and months – or years – of pain and suffering. In some cases there is permanent disability, and the costs of ongoing medical treatment and/or life-long care can be staggering. If you have been involved in an automobile accident, time is of the essence; you need to contact a highly skilled personal injury attorney as soon as possible, even if the injury may not seem that serious at first. You are entitled to compensation for all costs that are a result of that accident, and any pain and suffering you and/or your family endures as a result.
