Car Accidents in Oregon
Car accidents can completely change the lives of victims involved. Unfortunately, there are many instances where people are left with severe injuries that impact their lives indefinitely.
One type of injury that is common in car accidents is a bone fracture. While any bone in your body can be fractured in an accident, the most common fractures occur in the ribs, spine, and pelvis. Fractures can be extremely painful and may require surgery to repair.
Another type of injury that can occur in a car accident is damage to internal organs. This type of damage can range from minor bruising to more serious injuries such as lacerations or punctures. Internal organ damage can be extremely dangerous and may require hospitalization or surgery.
Finally, spinal cord injuries are also possible in car accidents. These injuries can range from mild to severe in nature, and can result in permanent paralysis. Spinal cord injuries can have a major impact on your quality of life and may require long-term care.
