Compassionate Service!
When I found myself in need of an attorney I googled a dozen in my area. Ryan was the only one who spent over an hour on the phone with me initially and it genuinely felt as if he cared. He kept me informed and would offer his expertise, but ultimately left the final decision up to me, if I wanted to take a plea or go to trial. I chose to go to trial and he was ready for the fight. Luckily the DA dismissed the charges and I was able to walk away. I felt as if he really truly had my best interest in mind and genuinely cared about my well being. I would definitely use him again, however I hope I never have to!

All of the staff members really took care of me especially Carolyn. These are best attorneys I have ever had! They communicated clearly and followed through. If I ever had a need for another attorney I would definitely come back. Nathan was very professional and fought for my settlement.

Last month, The Oregonian published a story about dangerous driving in Oregon. The article quoted a AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety survey stating that nine out of ten drivers admitted to engaging in risky driving behavior within the thirty days prior to the survey. The findings included the following: (1) 70% of drivers reported talking on a cellphone while driving; (2) 42% said they read texts or e-mails in traffic; (3) 48% said they drove 15 mph over the speed limit, (4) 39% said they drove through a light that just turned red when they could have stopped safely; and (5) 13% said that they drove when their blood alcohol level “might have been near or over the legal limit within the past year.

With so many people engaged in risky driving behavior, automobile collisions are inevitable.  Moreover, the more distracted a driver is, the greater the chance that he/she may cause a significant injury. Last year, Oregon had 446 fatalities on the state’s roads.

It is important to remember that getting behind the wheel of an automobile is a big responsibility. Even a slight mistake or a moment of inattention can alter your life and the lives of those around you. If you have been injured by someone who was engaged in risky driving behavior, it is important to know your rights. Corbridge Law Offices is here to help.
