Those experienced driving in Portland know that car accidents often occur in areas where driving can be treacherous. The Oregon Department of Transportation is hoping to shine some light on one such stretch of road in an effort to reduce motor vehicle accidents.
A tragic accident involving a party bus took place in downtown Portland last fall. While the party bus was on the road, a young girl fell out of the door and was killed. This incident highlights the dangers all vehicles face on Portland roads today, and the fact that car accidents threaten all drivers and passengers alike.
Some accidents on the roadways do not just involve cars. In fact, some car accidents involve bicycles as well. This is especially true as bicycles become more prevalent and share the road with cars.
In the aftermath of some car collisions, a lawsuit ensues as victims seek compensation for their losses. In large car accidents, those lawsuits may involve many parties.
