Bicycle Accidents in Oregon

According to statistics from the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), bicycle accidents are the most common motor vehicle accident in the state. Each year, hundreds of bicyclists are injured in collisions with motor vehicles, and tragically, many of these accidents result in fatalities.

Technically, Oregon law does not require motorists to look out for bicyclists, but it does require them to drive with "due care." Motorists must drive safely and responsibly. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for any bicycle accident injuries they cause.
