Common Types of Car Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can happen anywhere at any time and can be so varied in how they are caused and the results that come from them. One important aspect in any car accident case is what type of accident was it. How an accident happens can tell a story, and sometimes it can be monumental in how successful your case ends up. Here are some of the most common types of car accidents:
- Rear end collisions
- Side impact collisions
- Head on
- T-bone collisions (many times in intersections)
- Single vehicle accidents

What types of damages am I eligible to pursue in Estacada car accidents?
In the state of Oregon, there are two types of compensation a car accident victim can be eligible to pursue. Both are designed to make you whole again, to compensate the victim for their losses.
Economic Damages: compensate an injured plaintiff for direct financial losses, such as medication costs, hospitalization stays, surgery bills and lost wages. Economic damages are defined by Oregon law as “objectively verifiable monetary losses including but not limited to reasonable charges necessarily incurred for medical, hospital, nursing and rehabilitative services and other health care services, burial and memorial expenses, loss of income and past and future impairment of earning capacity”.
Noneconomic Damages: compensate an injured plaintiff for more subjective losses such as emotional trauma or distress. Oregon law defines these as “subjective, non-monetary losses, including but not limited to pain, mental suffering, emotional distress, humiliation”. These damages are more difficult to quantify, as emotional pain can be traumatic and long-lasting, as well as difficult to recover from.
