Though buses can seem like a safe means of transportation, this is not always the case. Unfortunately, Oregon buses--commercial, chartered, and school buses--are involved in accidents
frequently. If you or someone you love is involved in a bus accident, the very first thing to do after recovering from the initial shock is to get an Oregon bus accident attorney who can represent your interests. Peterson Law Offices of Portland can help.
We handle personal injury cases involving cars, trucks, buses, bicycles, motorcycles, boats, and pedestrians, as well. Keep in mind that after an accident, an insurance adjuster is immediately brought in to try to contain settlements to a minimal amount. Don't let them shortchange your injuries for a quick cash settlement. Call Peterson Law Offices and we'll help you approach the incident with insider knowledge.
Insurance companies know that many vehicular injuries involve the back. Within the back, however, are many muscles, tendons, discs, nerves, and blood vessels that don't "break" obviously like a bone would. Instead these "soft tissues" are susceptible to injuries that are not easy to diagnose. Insurance companies will try to pay you off early before any soft-tissue injuries assert themselves.
