Car Accidents in Oregon
According to statistics, over 100 vehicle accidents resulting in injuries take place every single day in the Portland metro area. This adds up to tens of thousands of people annually being harmed as a result of traffic collisions. Unfortunately, many people who are involved in these accidents are left with debilitating injuries that require immediate medical care. Some common injuries reported in car crashes in the state of Oregon include:
- Broken bones: Broken bones are one of the most common injuries from car accidents. They can occur in any part of the body but are most commonly seen in the arms and legs. In some cases, surgery may be required to properly align and set the bone.
- Spinal cord injuries: A spinal cord injury is a serious and potentially life-threatening injury that can occur in a car accident. Spinal cord injuries can be treated with surgery, physical therapy, and other rehabilitative measures.
- Internal organ injuries: These types of injuries are typically more severe than external injuries because they can lead to internal bleeding and damage to vital organs. In some cases, emergency surgery may be required to repair the damage.
Unfortunately, the cost of medical care can add up to tens of thousands of dollars following a motor vehicle accident.
