What to Know About Motorcycle Accidents in Oregon
Motorcyclists are exposed. Oregon considers motorcycle riders to be vulnerable road users. According to data from the Oregon Department of Transportation, 752 motorcyclists were injured and 71 were killed in collisions in the state in 2020 alone. Following a crash, it is imperative that injured motorcyclists know how to protect their well-being and legal rights. Before you speak to any insurance adjuster, make sure you consult with a Salem motorcycle accident lawyer.
You should always get immediate medical attention for motorcycle accident injuries. Emergency medical needs come before anything else. Your motorcycle crash should also be reported to law enforcement as soon as possible. As Oregon is a fault-based, comparative negligence state for motor vehicle collisions, (Or. Rev. Stat. § 31.600), it is crucial that your motorcycle crash is investigated. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney in Oregon will ensure that you have the evidence needed to prove fault.
Recovering Compensation After a Serious Motorcycle Crash
Motorcycle accident victims need financial compensation to pay their bills and support their loved ones. In Oregon, injured riders and passengers have the right to see compensation for economic and non-economic damages. Unfortunately, you cannot rely on insurance companies to look out for your best interests. Our Oregon motorcycle accident lawyer will help you fight for the full financial support you deserve. Along with other damages, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Motorcycle repairs or replacement;
- Emergency medical care;
- Medical bills and health related expenses;
- Lost wages and loss of earning power;
- Pain and suffering;
- Prolonged disability;
- Permanent scarring; and
- Wrongful death.
