Toddler Injured in South Salem Crash

Thursday afternoon a three-year-old was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash at Sunnyside Road and Kuebler Boulevard Drive SE in Salem.

A small SUV and a large pickup truck t-boned in the middle of the intersection.

A toddler was seriously injured and the mother had non-life threatening injuries and were both taken to the hospital.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

We wish everyone involved in the crash a full and speedy recovery.

If a child is injured, the statute of limitations is complicated. ORS 12.160 states that the time for bringing the lawsuit does not start being counted until the child turns 18. However, the time limit will never be extended for more than five years, nor will it be extended for more than one year after the child’s 18th birthday.

This statute creates confusion for many people, some lawyers included. So if your child has been injured, in either an auto crash or another type of accident, protect their rights (and your financial well-being) by considering a qualified injury lawyer. Our Portland personal injury lawyers offer free consultations.
