Title: Debunking Common Myths Surrounding Bicycle Accident Injuries and Compensation in Oregon
Hey fellow Redditors! As an attorney at Pacific Injury Law Firm, I've come across numerous misconceptions regarding bicycle accidents and the rights of cyclists here in our beautiful state of Oregon. Today, I'd like to take a moment to debunk some common myths we encounter and provide valuable information for all you cycling enthusiasts out there.
Myth #1: Cyclists are always at fault when involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. In reality, Oregon law treats bicycles as vehicles on public roads (ORS 814.400), granting cyclists the same rights and responsibilities as any other road user. Thus, if a motorist causes an accident due to negligence, they may be liable for any resulting injuries or damages.
Myth #2: If you weren't wearing a helmet during an accident, you cannot receive compensation. While helmets significantly reduce the risk of head injuries (ORS 814.485), not wearing one doesn't automatically disqualify you from seeking compensation under Oregon law. Although contributory negligence could be considered in some cases, our comparative negligence rule (ORS 31.600) allows injured cyclists to recover compensation even if partially at fault—as long as their degree of responsibility does not exceed that of the other parties involved.
Myth #3: Legal representation isn't necessary after a bicycle accident. Although minor cases can sometimes be resolved through negotiation with insurance companies or at-fault parties directly, many bicycle accident injury cases are more complex and require expert legal guidance from experienced personal injury attorneys who understand Oregon's intricate laws surrounding such incidents.
So remember—cyclists have just as much right to be on Oregon roads as anyone else! Don't let these misconceptions hold you back from understanding your rights and seeking justice if needed.
If you or someone close has been involved in a bicycle accident and needs assistance navigating the complexities of Oregon's legal system, do not hesitate to reach out to us at Pacific Injury Law Firm. We are dedicated to helping our clients achieve fair compensation for their injuries and losses. Give us a call at (971) 277-3811 or visit our website: https://pacificinjurylawfirm.com

2023.06.05 00:34 SPQRomanSparticus Do some inmates get what they deserve?
Back in 1997, a lawyer named Toby was convicted of Vehicular Manslaughter, sentenced to 15 years, up for parole in four. It was his second DUI. He stuck a 15 year old girl on a bicycle.
His defense attorney made a good argument, yes he was drunk at the time of the accident, but the victim darted out between two cars, while on a bicycle.
He had a bench trial. The judge didn't buy it. The judge didn't like that it was his second dui. The parents of the girl were were sad, hurt and wanted the maximum.
While in prison, he was sexually abuse by the White Supremacists. He fought back after taking some dude. He beat up their leader and shit on his face.

2023.06.05 00:00 ProofLeadership4952 The potential danger of carbon fibre and common misconceptions
*Disclaimer: I will get shit on for this… Anyway, this is not bashing against carbon fibre as a material, this is bashing on how it is manufactured, how it is distributed like any other material to the average consumer through smart marketing and on the fact that I can buy a bike like this, even though there are not nearly enough qualified people to ensure a quick and reliable help and repair service.
So if you don’t like to have a critical look on carbon fibre and the potential (!) dangers that those bikes CAN still cause, please don’t read. You can give thumbs down, I don’t care, I just want to spread this, because too many people don’t know or have been told stories, that simply aren’t true.*
Carbon is IN THEORY well suited for building a bicycle, because it has many positive features, we all know them. And the fans of carbon fibre know them very well. Most of the time, they fail to admit, that those come at a cost. This cost is often downplayed heavily or neglected completely. Your hear things like
“It gets used in aircraft” of course. but not to for money-saving-mass-production-preferably-as-lightweight-as-possible road bikes there even a small impact, like falling on a curb can lead to failure sometimes in the future. For a plane such comparable scenarios are unlikely to happen. And if a plane crashes - well I dunno but this isn’t comparable to a bicycle crash that is likely to occur every now and then.
“The pros ride them” I don’t believe, that if a pro rides Paris Roubaix, he doesn’t start with a perfectly serviced, freshly peeled and by more than one skilled mechanic supervised. Tbh honest I think many of them get a bike close to new condition every important race and they just don’t tell us. And if they crash - I doubt that they just ride along after the race like nothing happened. Either they get checked from a carbon expert to make sure everything is safe or the frame just gets replaced. I am the average consumer. If my carbon bike breaks I can’t simply buy a new frame. Did you ever see a MTB serviced after a DH-race? They replace everything that has noticeable wear. Even though the conditions are harsher, I doubt that it is totally different in road racing.
“It gets used in mountain biking” yes. MTB-carbon frames are hell more sturdier than a road bike frame, because of their design. and carbon fails in mountain biking are existent though.
“Had you seen this video of manufacturer x trying to crash frame x? Undestroyable” Carbon fibre is very resistent against certain kinds of impact. At least externally. I doubt that any fibre used for those demonstrations can be used safely afterwards - even if nothing failed during the process. If the impact occurs in any direction the fibres can’t resist, it would fail dramatically.
“I know nobody who experienced carbon fibre failure” Just google, man. just google. Carbon repair services wouldn’t exist if carbon failure wouldn’t exist. Oh - I experienced failure. That’s why I wrote this. Also just for your information: “We had just started our ride. And we're on a flat road. And the next thing I know, I was on the ground in a pool of blood. And I remember my friend saying he was picking up my teeth from the pavement.” 5000$ bike, freshly serviced, no crash before. And this is just one of the examples I found during my research.
“there is no evidence” of course not. It is carbon fibre. Even with Ultrasound it is sometimes hard to find the errors in the fibre. Also there is no statistic of frame failures. But carbon repair shops can’t complain about boredom.
Negatives I found out about carbon bicycles that is provable and backed by carbon experts, cyclists and mechanics:
- Small impacts can cause invisible damage, which can over time lead to a critical load of stress on the fibre, leading to spontaneous critical failure.
- Manufacturing issues. Carbon as a bike material isn’t a mature technology. Manufacturers still trying to make things better - but we are guinea pigs, paying premium prices. As the following are: Weak seatpost areas, weak dropout areas, weak handlebars, weak steerer (very prone to damage and very dangerous if it fails), using too little resin which results in very light frames but dry and weak fibre, using too little material in general. not with everything the manufacturer is to blame, the customer f.e. always screams for lighter bikes. they get it.
- simply keep riding, only visually observe the frame after a crash is a safety risk.
- Not enough consistency in terms of repair and scan methods between different carbon repair shops. You don’t know if you bring your bike to a qualified person and if it is really safe to ride afterwards.
- Not enough qualified carbon repair shops (at least in my country) for the amount of damaged frames. If I have a crash I have to disassemble and ship my bike hundreds of miles.
- unreliable behaviour. the failure behaviour of aluminium if it crashes, is relatively predictable. If there is only a scratch, you can continue riding. with carbon it isn’t this easy.
- carbon fibre is not recyclable and the particles are comparable to asbestos, causing the same symptoms at comparable exposure. Not really related to cycling, but I think this is important to know.
I don’t want to persuade you in not buying carbon anymore. It’s just that I am tired of those comments that I mentioned above. Carbon IS fragile under certain conditions and therefore HAS to be handled with care and there is a potential risk of getting hurt through unexpected failure. Through the characteristics of carbon these unexpected failures and failures through unintended abuse are more likely to happen, than on aluminum bikes. These are just facts. What you do with them is your decision.
I personally won’t ride carbon fibre bikes, until those problems are gone. The chance to get hurt through carbon fibre failure is small. But I just hate the thought, that it can happen anytime without a warning and could be caused by even a small impact from the wrong direction.

2023.06.04 23:50 glum_cunt What To Do?
Partner and child were involved in a traffic accident over 18 months ago. The lawyer we were recommended has completely ghosted us. Dozens upon dozens of requests for a case update have gone unheeded. His voicemail is full, doesn’t respond to email or text. Upon reading the contract my spouse signed there is a ‘termination fee’ if attorney is fired. His billable hours become due. But we can’t get any sense of how many hours he would claim he’s worked without talking to him. At some point soon the statute of limitations will expire if a lawsuit is necessary.
Fear, is that ghost attorney fees + new attorney cut of settlement will essentially negate any monetary cure we’d see.
Lawyers, would you cut and run or is there another way?

2023.06.04 22:12 ThrowRA_lastmountain Was just a hit and run victim, both parties might be without insurance. Where do we go from here?
Last week, I was involved in a minor car accident. The vehicle failed to properly execute their turn into the lane beside me, hanging just out of their lane enough for our cars to side swipe each other. They parked behind me to allow traffic to pass, or so I thought, but they slipped out with the traffic as it went by; I looked behind me after waiting a split second to see no car!
I immediately pulled a u-turn to park in the closest parking lot, just across the street median so I was able to confirm with the long turn that the vehicle truly ran off instead of perhaps finding a better place to park.
A neighborhood app post led to the vehicle being found; The person who found it confirmed that it was the vehicle by giving details such as the damage appearing within the last couple days- when the crash happened.
Where I'm at now is calling the sheriff responsible for the report so he can add the plate to the report. When this happens, is filing a civil suit the best way to go, and if it is, what questions should I ask if I find an attorney? Is there actually a path to getting recourse and my car fixed?

2023.06.04 20:32 MedusaKiller_190 Should I quit my job?
Hello everybody, so I currently work at a two attorney firm. I decided to become a paralegal because it seemed like the thing I can excel at. I am currently in school to get my paralegal certificate. Of course to get ahead of the game, I wanted to get a job at a law firm while in school to gain experience and already know the duties I would have to do once I am a certified paralegal. Thankfully, I got a job after MONTHS of interviewing at law firms and I am honestly thankful for the opportunity to get the job I did. I work at a PI firm as a legal secretary. My boss is pretty flexible and I don’t think he looks down on me at all. So HUGE bonus from reading some of you guy’s experiences. However, I feel so underwhelmed and bored most of the time. I used to work as a social worker at a nursing facility and in that job I was overwhelmed, underpaid, and exhausted everyday. My current job is the opposite of that and although my emotional and mental health has improved, I feel like they do not assign me much to do. As we are a PI firm that get clients that were in car accidents, I mostly just call clients and talk about their symptoms. However, we do not have an infinite number of clients and I went through the phone calls pretty quickly. I do smaller and time consuming tasks that would help my lawyers with their jobs. For the last month, I have mostly just being organizing mail that has been sent from insurances, to insurances, from opposing counsel, and to opposing counsel within our system so it is easier for my lawyers to get information they need. I am not too excited to do that task since I am not learning anything new nor is it a transferrable skill. So, overall I really am not doing much here. Apart from calling clients once in a while I don’t see what impact I have in my job. I feel like the little things they tell me to do is them throwing me a bone and feeling bad they have nothing else for me. I did tell me my boss more than once to give me more and not much had changed. My law firm is only 3 years old and we are figuring out how to make improve it. Oh, and another grievance, I am supposed to be part time, work 20 hours but sometimes I don’t even get that cause for XYZ reason my two lawyers are out of office, which is ok cause I know life happens. But I still gotta pay my bills somehow.
I know I went on a huge rant, sorry about that 😅. Should I quit my job or should I wait a little longer to do so? I have only worked here three months and I am afraid how that is going to look for other employers. But as of right now I can say I am not that passionate about PI, I am not loving the workflow, and I feel like I could be putting my time into something that can be teaching me more.
