If you've been seriously injured in an accident involving a truck, it's important to understand all of your injuries before you settle with the trucking company's insurance representatives. In you're in Oregon or southern Washington, call Peterson Law Offices. For
many years, we've fought hard on the behalf of accident victims of all types, including those involved in truck accidents.
If you've been treated in an emergency room or by your doctor, you've probably been given pain medication. Believe it or not, these anti-inflammatory meds can actually lead to further problems. Just be aware that pain medication only lessens the pain; it is not a long-term solution to soft-tissue injuries, in particular. Remember that pain medication is not something you want to take indefinitely.
Insurance companies like to settle with victims at this very point--when they are first medicated and feeling a lot better. Unfortunately, not only will the pain return when the medication wears off, but it's also possible to do more damage to your body while on the meds. Since they mask pain, anti-inflammatory pills may make you feel up to doing more than you should.
