Canby Man Killed in Crash
Date: May 3, 2015
Location: South Mulino Road at Central Point Road
Name: David N. Jensen
Sunday evening a man was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Clackamas County.
A Ford Bronco was heading north on South Mulino Road at Central Point Road when the driver lost control and hit a tree. The passenger side tires apparently hit gravel on the road’s shoulder, which sent the vehicle out of control.
The driver, David N. Jensen, 40, of Canby, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash.
Car accidents can be life-changing, and we extend our condolences to the family and friends of David N. Jensen.
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.
