The Forbes Advisor team recently analyzed key metrics including the fatal car accidents per capita by state, the total number of people killed per capita, the percentage of accidents due to negligent driving, and the annual changes in each category to uncover the most dangerous states for drivers.
Their research showed Oregon ranks sixth in the nation for the highest percentage of fatal accidents that result from impaired driving — 44%
At the Law Offices of Jon Friedman, our Portland auto accident attorneys know impaired driving significantly increases the risk of motor vehicle collisions here, and throughout the country. Unfortunately, the winter holiday season, from Thanksgiving through the New Year, shows a spike in these deadly collisions.
If you or someone you know has been injured or killed by a drunk driver in Oregon, you have legal rights and options to pursue the negligent driver for your full financial recovery.
We can help, starting with a free consultation.
Will My Personal Injury Claim’s Success Hinge on the Drunk Driver’s Criminal Conviction?
No. While an Oregon driver’s intoxication may have been the reason for your crash, injuries, or the loss of your loved one, personal injury cases unfold under civil laws. This means your personal injury case is separate from the criminal case.
Our Portland personal injury lawyers pursue all necessary evidence to seek a fair and full recovery for each of our clients.
We make sure our clients understand where they stand from the start of their case and keep them informed throughout the legal process. Communicating effectively allows our clients to know and understand what we are doing and why and lets them focus on doing what they need to do to get complete recovery from their injuries.
