Injured In A Rear Ended Accident In Portland?
A rear-end collision is one of the most common accidents, yet the injuries suffered in this type of collision can be difficult to prove.
If you have sustained a neck injury or traumatic brain injury in a rear-end accident that was the result of a distracted driver, the experienced Portland rear-end collision attorneys at Sokol & Associates, P.C., know how to properly document your injuries and pursue fair compensation. If an insurance provider refuses to compensate you adequately, we will advocate on your behalf for full reimbursement, including long-term rehabilitation needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Helping Victims Of Rear-End Collisions Throughout The Portland Area
When one vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed collides with a vehicle that is moving much slower or is stationary, it frequently results in “soft tissue” injuries (often referred to as “whiplash”) caused by occupants’ heads snapping forward and back violently. Rear-end collisions also cause traumatic brain injuries that can result in long-term or permanent disability.
Because these injuries are not plainly visible and do not show up on X-rays, insurance companies often refuse to pay the full amount rightfully owed to a person injured in a rear-end accident.
Whether you feel pain immediately after a rear-end accident or not, you should still seek prompt medical attention. If you don’t, the insurance company may claim that you were not injured or that your injury did not result from the accident.
