Quick Answers from Our Attorneys
Q: What responsibilities do pedestrians have to avoid accidents?
“Pedestrians have a duty of care to obey traffic laws and care for their own safety. In Oregon, that includes obeying the “walk” signal at an intersection, using marked crosswalks, and yielding to emergency vehicles, among other things. If you fail to exercise such care, you may be found partially responsible for the accident (called contributory negligence). Learn more here.”
— Deena D. Sajitharan
Q: How much time do I have to file a claim after a pedestrian accident?
“In general, you have 2 years from the date you were injured to file a claim/lawsuit. There are exceptions that can either shorten or increase this timeframe. Contact us and we’ll evaluate your case to determine whether or not your timeframe has expired.”
— Christopher Larsen
Q: What information do I need to file a pedestrian accident claim?
“Oregon law requires you to file an Oregon Accident and Insurance Report with the Oregon DMV within 3 days of the accident. You should also write down the details of the accident as soon as possible, including what happened, location, and names/comments made by anyone involved. And don’t forget to preserve documents like photos of your injuries, video or audio recordings, and information exchanged.”
