Rollover Crash in Marion County Injures Seven
Date: April 2, 2015
Location: River Road & Mahony Road NE
Early Thursday morning a rollover crash occurred on River Road and Mahony Road NE injuring seven passengers in a van.
A Ford Econoline attempted to pass another vehicle not realizing there was an oncoming car in the opposite lane. The driver quickly went back into her own lane, but over-corrected and lost control of the van. The van rolled over and landed in a field near the road.
All seven occupants of the van were taken to Salem Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
Car accidents can be life-changing, and we hope everyone involved in the crash are able to fully recover soon.
While many single-car accidents seem uncomplicated, there are sometimes other factors to consider. If you have been injured in a single- car accident, like the one described here, you may be able to receive compensation in several instances:
- If poor road conditions, poor signage, or bad traffic control contributed to the accident, there may be a lawsuit available against the city, county, or state. In cases against a public body, you may only have 180 days to file a tort claim notice (in most cases) so act quickly to protect your rights.
- If the car’s mechanic was negligent in his last repairs, contributing to the accident, there may be a lawsuit available against the mechanic or his business.
- If the car’s manufacturer was negligent, you may be able to file a product liability suit against them. Car manufacturers have often been held accountable for design defects and manufacturing defects, and these lawsuits help ensure that future drivers are not hurt by negligent safety standards.
If you have been injured in a single-car accident that you believe may not have been your fault, you can call a Portland car accident lawyer for help with your investigation at 503-222-4411.
