Some people think that they need to have dramatic injuries or dramatic damage on their car to recover from a Portland injury attorney. In actuality, some low impact crashes can cause serious injuries, but the people suffer in silence because their car didn’t have much damage. Even if your car didn’t show much damage, you should still be made whole from your injuries.
The reason why low impact crashes can cause serious injuries is because cars can only do so much to absorb the shock. In a serious crash, airbags might deploy and other safety measures might kick in. But with a low impact crash, the car may not initiate these safety measures, leaving a person to absorb the shock. This can lead to serious injuries in the neck and in the back, even in a seemingly minor accident.
Similarly, a person may not be aware that a car behind them is skidding to a stop and fail to brace for impact. This can jolt a person, leading to soft tissue injury such as whiplash. Soft tissue injuries are injuries to the connective tissues within the body, and they can be very difficult to treat. What works for one person may not work for another, leaving a person to treat for months upon months without results. This leads to high medical bills that deserve to be reimbursed.
