PEDESTRIAN INJURIES

Please also visit my standalone website dedicated to Oregon pedestrians at www.oregonpedestrianlaw.com and download a free copy of my book "Oregon Pedestrian Law.

Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable roadway users.  When a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle, the resulting injuries are often catastrophic.  What adds insult to injury is that the pedestrian is usually blamed and cannot tell their side of the story because they are seriously injured or dead.

 

Pedestrian versus motor vehicle crashes often result in injuries like broken bones, head injuries, and dental injuries.

 

In Oregon, pedestrians have the right-of-way in all crosswalks.  Oregon has marked crosswalks and unmarked crosswalks.  Every intersection contains crosswalks.

 

Drivers often strike pedestrians because they are distracted or intoxicated and fail to see the pedestrian crossing the road.  When one of these collisions happens it is very important to contact a pedestrian accident attorney right away because important evidence can be lost with time (like surveillance camera footage). 

 

When a pedestrian is injured by a motor vehicle in Oregon there are some special insurance laws that apply that favor the pedestrian.  It is very important to retain an experienced pedestrian accident attorney as soon as possible after the crash.

 

I invite you to visit my standalone Oregon pedestrian law website and my page dedicated to Motor Vehicle Collisions.
