A Motor Vehicle Accident Can Happen At Any Moment

A car accident can be unavoidable. As careful of a driver as you may be, other motorists may simply not be as attentive. When another individual's negligence causes you to be in an accident, however, you may be left reeling with significant vehicle damage and rapidly escalating medical bills — all due to their mistake.

In such an event, you do have legal options. At E.L. Law Firm, I have an extensive background in helping Portland drivers file comprehensive claims that better position them to receive maximum compensation. Whether you are taking on an insurance company or another driver, an experienced attorney such as myself, Efrem Lawrence, can help you reach a more positive outcome.

An Assortment Of Negligent Behavior Can Lead To An Auto Accident

When assessing your claim, it is crucial to correctly determine who was liable in your collision. This can sometimes be pretty clear if, say, someone ran a stop sign, but distracted driving accidents can be more complicated.

Drivers can be found liable for a multitude of reasons, including:

  • Reckless or careless driving: Ignoring the speed limit and not adhering to traffic laws is a dangerous practice. When an individual's reckless driving leads to an accident, they can be held liable.
  • Intoxication: driving while drunk or impaired on drugs can slow your ability to react on the road.
  • Distraction: Texting while driving is an increasing issue on Oregon roadways. Other forms of distraction, such as eating or adjusting your navigation, can also prove dangerous.

The aftermath of a motor vehicle accident can be a confusing time. Depending on the severity of the accident and your injuries, your recollection could be hazy. A committed lawyer like myself will take the time to investigate your accident in order to build a comprehensive and accurate claim.
