Car Accident Victim’s Rights

My name is Todd Peterson. I’m not a doctor. I’m a Oregon and Washington Personal injury lawyer who has handled over a thousand injury cases-many just like yours possibly. My clients have taught me many things.

The one thing my injured clients have in common, in my experience, is that they all want to feel better and get on with their lives. Sometimes this is possible if they get the right advice at the right time.

Unfortunately, sometimes they wait too long to get the right health care advice, in my opinion—in those cases the only thing I can do is try to secure an adequate financial settlement for them-IF IT ISN’T TOO LATE!

Most would rather forget about the money if they could just get their health back to where it was before the accident, but would rather have someone else pay for the treatment as well as their pain and suffering.

You need to get the doctor to say the injury was related to the car accident ASAP or it may be almost impossible to convince the insurance company or the jury that your injuries are related to the car accident.

I’ve spent many years fighting for the rights of auto accident victims just like you. I’m sick and tired of car accident victims going through years of pain and misery all because no one ever bothered to tell them their rights and the truth about their injuries.

I’m sick and tired of getting calls from people who have settled too soon or tried to do it themselves and gotten peanuts from the insurance company. I’m also tired of the tactics the insurance companies use early on to force a lower recovery. After an accident don’t give a statement to the other driver’s insurance company until you have talked to me or another lawyer.

I want you to know the truth about car accidents almost everyone out there doesn’t seem to want you to know. Also I want you to know that, In my opinion, I can help you get more money and do less work than if you handle the case alone.

Document Your Injuries From Day One

It’s important that you document your injuries now! Because not doing so may make any injuries you have get worse and they may become more difficult to treat down the road (meaning you will be in pain longer), and, in my experience, it most likely will hurt your personal injury case if you don’t document your injuries right away, even if you decide to pursue legal counsel.

Even if you feel okay right now, if you were in an accident, you still run a high risk of suffering from a hidden injury otherwise called “delayed onset soft tissue injury”. It’s best to play it safe now and get checked out to make sure you really are okay.

According to many chiropractors I have heard that the slightest injury, even one that you don’t feel right now, may lead to a terrible condition down the road called ‘osteoarthritis.’

While it is possible to treat it, it takes a long time, and sometimes is impossible to cure 100% once you have it. Worse yet, you may have to foot the bill! And all because someone hit you many years before!

Portland Auto Accident: A Portland Oregon Lawyer’s Opinion

Every day, according to my office manager’s calculations, about 100 Portland Metro residents are injured in a Portland auto accident (see accident statistics page) and, in my opinion, most of them aren’t lucky enough to have this information in front of them. As a result, they may either receive inappropriate care for their injuries or never get their injury diagnosed properly, and often settle their case too soon.

Don’t Speak To ANYONE About Your Case Until You Finish Reading This Free Report!

Most insurance adjusters know all about the kind of injuries people like you and me can experience in an accident. They know sometimes you don’t feel injured right away and that’s why they try to settle as quickly as possible while your medical bills are low or non-existent.

They’d rather see you in pain after you settle, which means you’re stuck picking up the tab for any future treatment.

This Can Happen Even If It’s Your Own Insurance Company You’re Dealing With!

Make no mistake, insurance is a business like any other, and the less they spend on appropriate care, the more money they make their shareholders.

Even if you were involved in a minor fender bender, studies have proven you could suffer from a severe injury that isn’t easily noticeable.

You can be severely injured and only feel a little or no pain at all after the accident. Your doctor can easily miss this and mistake your pain for something completely different. This is when insurance companies try to settle with you. Don’t make this mistake!

Until a recognized and reputable doctor who has experience with low impact, soft tissue injuries says you are 100% okay, don’t make the decision to settle too soon!

Soft Tissue Injuries in Car Accidents: In My Opinion

Hidden Injuries CAN Financially And Physically Hurt You!

After any accident, in my opinion, it’s advisable to visit the emergency room to make sure you don’t suffer from any life-threatening injuries like broken bones, a punctured lung, or internal bleeding.

But the problem is that as long as there’s no immediate threat to your life, the emergency room physician is likely to send you along on your way with pain medication to mask the pain.

And here’s the problem with only taking pain medication after your accident…

Soft tissues like muscles, ligaments, discs, nerves and blood vessels need oxygen. They also need to function and move properly.

When you only take pain relief medication and/or anti-inflammatory medication, scar tissue and adhesions can form-limiting the proper motion needed for healthy nerve and blood flow.

Scar tissue is also a substandard tissue that can turn into its own source of pain – causing a number of chronic pains, symptoms and syndromes!

The Problem Is That Soft Tissue Injuries

Are NOT Always Visible On X-Rays

That’s why most doctors don’t have the training to detect soft tissue injuries…they over-rely on vital signs, x-rays, and the pain described by the patient!

Since many doctors can’t detect your injury, they make the wrong diagnosis about what’s wrong with you. So any treatments you get based on this diagnosis will do practically nothing for you!

The treatment of choice for medical doctors, like your family doctor, is to use drugs to cover up your symptoms (in your case, the biggest symptom is pain) so you don’t feel injured anymore. This form of treatment only gives you the illusion that you’re okay, when really you can be seriously injured and not know it.

So, If You Are Experiencing Any Of These Symptoms, You May Be Suffering From A Soft Tissue Injury

If You Are Experiencing Any of These Symptoms, You May Be Suffering From a Soft Tissue Injury: My Opinion

  • Muscle Stiffness
  • Spasms
  • Neck Pain
  • Headaches
  • Numbness And Tingling
  • Mid-Back Pain
  • Low Back Pain
  • Difficulty Sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Memory Loss
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty Concentrating

Or worse yet, you may be feeling none of these right now because your injury hasn’t started producing these symptoms yet.

Let’s assume you are experiencing some neck pain. How will your doctor attempt to treat you? He or she is going to attempt to cover up your pain with over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and other, more powerful pain relievers, in my opinion.

These drugs only work by sabotaging your body’s ability to register pain. They do absolutely nothing to fix the problem causing the pain.

So, while these drugs are sweeping the dirt under the rug, you’re giving the illusion you’re actually okay. This is dangerous.

Why is this dangerous?

Accident victims on pain medication are more likely to settle their case. The insurance companies use this to their advantage so don’t make hasty decisions while on pain relief medication. It may come back to haunt you later.

Usually under pain relief medication, you are more likely to worsen your injury! Your body’s way of telling you that you are making things worse is pain and, if you do not feel the pain, you may be aggravating your injury and not even know it!

Ever have a sprained ankle? What happens if you keep walking on it rather than sit it out for a few days? It hurts more and more. And why? Because you’re making it worse!

Soft Tissue Injuries

The same is true for these soft tissue injuries in your neck and back. Yes, you read that correctly! Your doctor who means well and wants you pain-free, may be hurting you by giving you seemingly harmless drugs!

That’s not to mention the side effects of using these drugs. You see, the bodily functions these drugs are blocking to hide your pain also have other functions in the body. Depending on the drug, you may run into serious kidney, stomach, or liver problems as a result of popping these drugs just to get through a day of work.

The next step doctors will rely on once their initial treatments fail is to refer you to a physical therapist and they will determine a treatment for you, usually going a couple times a week for several months.

If therapy fails or he feels it won’t help than the doctor may recommend you see a surgeon about your problem.

You should consider ALL of your health care options. Physical therapy can help some of the time, but certainly not all of the time.

SOMETIMES SURGERY IS RECOMMENDED-BUT IS IT NECESSARY?

Soft Tissue Injury: An OR Auto Accident Attorney’s Opinion

YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER CHIROPRACTIC CARE, A GENTLER AND MORE THOROUGH APPROACH, in my opinion.

Now, it’s true that surgery is an extremely drastic treatment for these sorts of injuries, in my opinion, so consider it carefully, but they generally result in larger claim than when you tough it out. Chiropractic care may be a better option for you and will also lead to a bigger recovery than gritting your teeth and bearing it.

SEVERE INJURIES RESULTING IN BROKEN BONES, LACERATIONS, AND TISSUE LOSS ARE EASIER TO DETECT AND REQUIRE IMMEDIATE MEDICAL INTERVENTION. AS MENTIONED EARLIER, MEDICAL DOCTORS AND EMERGENCY ROOMS ARE ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY FOR THESE TYPES OF INJURIES. BUT…….

What If You Suffer From

A Hidden Injury!

A Chiropractor may find a soft-tissue injury that the doctor missed.

The sooner you find out you have an injury, the sooner you can start a treatment plan to get rid of it and get you out of pain as soon as possible.

Hidden injuries are extremely serious problems. Unfortunately, medical science is under-trained and unequipped to diagnose and treat them with any measure of success.

The sooner you find out you have a hidden injury, the sooner you can start a treatment plan to get rid of it and get you out of pain as soon as possible. Wouldn’t it be nice to finally be pain-free and living your life the same way you did before the accident ever happened?
