Horns don't matter when pedestrians use headphones

Accidents between cars and pedestrians wearing headphones have been trending upward, and that trend has been pretty sharp. Back in 2004 and 2005, a study found that there were only 16 of these accidents all across the United States. Just a few years later, between 2010 and 2011, that number spiked up to 47 total.

1 killed, 2 injured in SUV and bicycle accident in Oregon

As someone who enjoys cycling through the scenic areas of Oregon, you probably already recognize that there are dangers to your life when you're on the road. Cars sometimes pass too closely; they speed up to get around you or slow down at the last minute after failing to see you.

What do I do if I've been hurt at work in Oregon?

If you get hurt on your job in Oregon, you have a few choices to make to start with. If you're injured but have time before you need to seek medical help, then you'll normally inform your employer of your injury and fill out the necessary paperwork before you head to the hospital or medical practitioner. For instance, if you fracture your wrist, you may not be in severe pain but need medical attention. It would be reasonable that in some cases, you could report your injury before heading to the doctor.
