A traffic accident, also known as car accident, auto accident, traffic mishap, or traffic event, happens when a car crashes into another vehicle, pedestrian, object, animal, etc., including traffic debris, road repair, or another vehicle. The most common types of accidents that involve cars are collisions between two vehicles, and also between one vehicle and another. Additionally, it can also happen between motorcycles and cars as well. This article is going to give you some information on car accident in Portland that you should know if you are a driver or a pedestrian in the area. Here are some examples:
* pedestrians Tripping on the sidewalk is not always an accident. In fact, many times it is the fault of the pedestrians. If there is a pavement that is uneven or damaged somehow, it may cause someone to trip and fall. If you were at fault in a car accident involving a pedestrian, you can file an injury claim with your car insurance policy company, but the insurance company of the person who hit you may have different requirements for filing an injury claim.
* Animal attack Sometimes an animal might attack a person walking or trying to cross the street. If this occurs, you can file an animal attack lawsuit. This type of injury lawsuit requires you to get a free consultation with an attorney. In the free consultation, the attorney will determine if there is reasonable evidence that you are at fault for the injury and that you have caused the injury via your negligence.
* Other party coverage Car insurance coverage is typically categorized based upon who is the person causing the accident. For instance, if you were the person at fault, you will have the “only” or the liability coverage. If you were the other party, then you will be classified as the “perjury” or “contributory” coverage. This means that you will be responsible for any injuries that are inflicted upon anyone else through your negligence. If you have this type of car accident injury coverage, you need to contact your insurance carrier immediately so that the coverage can be changed to the one that fits your needs the best.
* Car accident claims that result in a fatality are classified as a “crash” or “fatal accident.” In most states, this includes death by car accident. So if you are involved in a car accident and suffer an injury that results in your death, you need to contact your insurance carrier to file a fatality claim. This applies regardless of whether or not you are classified as a “permanent” or “non-permanent” victim.
* No fault accident If you are partly to blame for the accident because you are at fault, you do not have to worry about having to pay damages to anyone else. You need to contact your insurance carrier right away so that you can get the free consultation needed to determine fault. The insurance carrier will use its in-house formula to determine who is partly at fault. If you are found to be partly at fault, you will be able to choose from the available settlement packages.
