An Overview of Pedestrian Accident Claims in Oregon

All drivers have a legal responsibility to safely share the road with pedestrians. Sadly, in far too many cases, motorists fail to watch out for pedestrians. Automobiles remain a serious threat to public safety in our state. According to data from the Oregon Department of Transportation, 740 pedestrians were injured and 80 were killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2020 alone. A disproportionate share of pedestrian accidents result in severe injuries. 

A driver is not automatically liable for a pedestrian crash in Oregon. Similar to other motor vehicle collisions, these are fault-based cases. Pedestrian accident liability is handled under Oregon’s comparative negligence standard (Or. Rev. Stat. § 31.600). Each party will be assigned responsibility for an accident that is equivalent to their level of fault. Insurance companies may try to blame a pedestrian for part (or all) of their own crash. An experienced Oregon pedestrian accident lawyer will protect your rights. 

We Help Injured Pedestrians Maximize their Financial Recovery

A pedestrian accident can lead to very serious injuries. It is imperative that the victim gets the full compensation that they need to pay bills and support themselves. Sadly, you cannot rely on the insurance company to do what is best for your family. Our Oregon pedestrian accident lawyer has the skills and knowledge to maximize your settlement or verdict. Compensation may be available for: 

  • Emergency medical treatment; 
  • Hospital bills and other medical expenses;
  • Rehabilitative medical care;
  • Lost wages and loss of earning power;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Physical disfigurement; and
  • Wrongful death.
