Common Types of Car Accident Injuries
When another driver causes a collision, they can be held liable for any related costs and damages. While some accidents can be more severe than others, any crash could result in life-altering injuries.
These are some of the most common injuries suffered in accidents:
- Broken bones
- Back and spine damage
- Head injuries
- Brain damage or concussions
- Permanent disfiguration
In the most tragic cases, wrongful death can occur. Even with the seemingly most minor injury, complications and expenses can easily add up. Medical expenses for an ambulance, emergency room care, surgery, x-rays, and other procedures often exhaust a healthcare insurance plan before the real medical work even begins.
When another driver’s negligent or reckless behavior led to your accident, you may be able to recover extensive compensation. The question is whether or not the other driver will admit fault, and what will need to be done if they do not. Our firm is here to guide you if you are staring down a legal conflict with another driver and their insurer.

5 Reasons to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer
- Your words have meaning: A solid case can disintegrate with one misconstrued or misunderstood statement. Simple apologies could be taken as admissions of guilt, or you might be talking to someone who represents the negligent party and not realize it. When you allow a personal injury attorney to handle your case, you can ensure that nothing will be misspoken and be used against your claims.
- Insurance companies are convoluted: Have you ever taken the time to read the fine print in your insurance policy statement? If you have, you already know just how complicated and roundabout their language can be. Don’t risk overlooking a crucial detail of your case while you try to figure out their intentionally difficult clauses. Instead, rely on an attorney familiar with Oregon car insurance laws.
- You can’t miss a deadline: In personal injury cases, there are going to be a series of deadlines you must meet in order to file your claim. It could be paperwork having to deal with the medical costs incurred from your car accident, or it could just be a notice you will give the responsible driver. No matter what it is, your lawyer can make certain it gets done correctly and on-time.
- Fair settlements are hard to find: After you have been debilitated from catastrophic injuries, it can be difficult to actually know how much your suffering is going to cost you. You would be lucky to be offered a settlement that covers even initial damages, but what about lost wages and rehabilitation costs? To fight for a dollar amount that takes care of you and your family, you should hire a personal injury attorney who knows the ins and outs of laws and litigation.
- Keen eye for evidence: Everything might come down to a single piece of evidence. Finding those little bits can be difficult for someone who has never managed a car accident claim before. When you rely on a personal injury attorney, you can rest and recover while they worry about the fine details surrounding your case, and they can even bring in professionals to help out, such as physicians and accident reconstructionists.
