Serious Personal Injury Law Firm Medford, OR 

Serious Personal Injury Law Firm Medford, OR  Serious Personal Injury Law Firm Medford, OR 

One thing we all learn (especially as we age) is that the human body is vulnerable and breakable. This is perhaps never more apparent than after an auto accident has occurred. There are countless ways to be injured or killed in a motor vehicle crash, and they vary depending on the types of vehicles involved and many other factors.

That being said, certain auto accidents are commonly associated with certain types of serious injuries. If you or a loved one has been gravely harmed in one of the ways described below (or in another manner), please contact a serious injury lawyer Medford, OR residents trust to discuss your rights and legal options. The experienced team at Andersen Morse & Linthorst is here to ensure that you don’t have to navigate this challenging time alone. Unfortunately, serious accidents result in serious injuries every day in Oregon and across the country. Our Medford, OR serious personal injury law firm is experienced in handling these kinds of cases and can help you navigate yours as successfully as possible. 

Common Motorcyclist Injuries

Motorcycles are much smaller than other vehicles on the road and offer no external protection to the rider. Because of this, motorcycle crashes (even minor ones) are much more likely to result in serious injury or death for the person on the motorcycle. Some of the most frequent serious injuries include:

  •         Traumatic brain injuries
  •         Spinal cord injuries (including partial or complete paralysis)
  •         Broken bones
  •         Cuts, abrasions, and friction burns (road rash)
  •         Limb amputations

Crashes Between Commercial Trucks and Smaller Cars

Here is another scenario in which the size and weight differential leads to serious injuries for occupants of the smaller vehicle. In fact, it is rare for truck drivers to be seriously injured in crashes, while occupants of smaller vehicles are frequently seriously injured or killed after suffering a collision with a large truck. Common injuries include:

  •         Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  •         Neck and soft-tissue injuries (whiplash)
  •         Traumatic brain injuries
  •         Crushing injuries
  •         Internal injuries/organ damage
  •         Broken bones, cuts and bruises

The injuries listed above are also common to accidents between two cars of roughly the same size and weight. In those scenarios, however, occupants of both vehicles are at similar risks for injury.

Pedestrian and Bicyclist Injuries

Being a pedestrian or bicyclist in certain areas is taking your life in your hands. Drivers of cars/trucks rarely afford walkers and bikers the care and deference they deserve. And because they have nothing to protect them, serious injuries and death are very likely in the event of a collision. Common injuries include:

  •         Head, neck and spinal cord injuries
  •         Traumatic brain injuries
  •         Injuries to the torso and internal organs
  •         Limb crushing and amputation
  •         Road rash
  •         Broken bones, cuts and bruises

The Personal and Financial Costs to Victims

If you’ve been seriously injured in any type of auto accident, you likely have a long and difficult road to recovery ahead of you. You may be dealing with months or years of pain and suffering, reduced/limited mobility, and the need for physical therapy. This is one of the many reasons why you should consider connecting with our Medford, OR serious personal injury law firm as soon as you can in the wake of a collision. From a financial perspective, you are likely incurring costs related to past/present/future medical bills, lost wages (from time away from work), reduced earning capacity, and replacement of lost/damaged property. The reassuring news is that we can help you pursue compensation for all of your economic damages and many of your non-economic damages by filing an insurance claim and/or personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver and/or other responsible parties.
