Car Accidents in Oregon
An injury accident in Oregon can happen very suddenly and unexpectedly. Although they do not always result in injuries, in many cases they will. The injuries suffered in an accident range from minor bruises and scratches to severe incapacitating injuries and even death. Ultimately, a substantial number of innocent victims are affected by crashes that occur on our state’s roadways each year. These motorists are injured when they are involved in collisions with a negligent driver.
Following an Oregon car accident, there are a few steps that injured victims should take. First and most importantly, you should see treatment for your injuries. Many car accident injuries can be latent, meaning that they do not appear right away. In fact, you may not feel the effects of the crash for weeks afterward. However, it is important to seek treatment at any point when you begin feeling discomfort. Failing to promptly see a doctor can result in your injuries worsening and can also affect the ultimate value of your case.
After you seek treatment, you should speak with an experienced Oregon car accident attorney as soon as possible. The insurance company may try to contact you and attempt to get you to settle your case quickly. This is often a mistake as the initial settlement offer does not accurately reflect the value of the case. In order to obtain the compensation that you deserve, you need a skilled attorney by your side to deal with the insurance adjuster.
