There are millions of car accidents every year in the United States. The majority of those are caused by some form of negligence.
We drive so often that it’s easy to forget — every time you get into a car, you’re taking your life and the lives around you into your hands. Unfortunately, people forget the importance of driving safely. Distracted driving in Marion County, Oregon, is one of the most common causes of accidents. Some allow distractions, such as a cell phone or GPS device, to impair their ability to drive safely. Others drive recklessly. Some even drive after drinking. All of these are examples of negligent driving.
If you’ve been injured by a drunk, distracted, or reckless driver, you absolutely deserve compensation. You should be compensated for the damage to your car, your medical bills, and, in some cases, pain and suffering.
