Scio Man Killed in Linn County Rollover Crash

Friday evening a Scio man was killed after being ejected from his Jeep in Linn County.

Michael James Robinson, 47, of Scio, was heading south on Stayton Scio Road in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee when he failed to negotiate a turn near Sandner Road.

The Jeep left the road, fell down a ditch, flipped over, hit a tree and came to rest against a home. The house sustained minor damage but no one was hurt.

Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene, about 80 feet from the Jeep.

He was not wearing a seat belt during the time of the crash.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of Michael James Robinson.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
