Bend Woman Injured in Rollover Crash
Date: April 15, 2015
Location: Northeast Third Street at DeKalb Avenue
Name: Vicki Jo Cudek
Wednesday evening a single-vehicle crash injured a woman on Northeast Third Street at DeKalb Avenue in Bend.
The driver, Vicki Jo Cudek, 56, was found trapped inside a 2013 silver Honda CR-V with heavy damage.
An investigation found that Cudek was heading north on Third Street and may have experienced some sort of medical condition that caused her to lose control of the car which crossed over all lanes before hitting a power pole.
The driver was taken to St. Charles Bend and was reported in good condition on Thursday.
Car accidents can be life-changing, and we hope Vicki Jo Cudek is 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.
