What to know about auto accident injuries

I have seen several patients recently who have suffered auto accident injuries. As I’ve helped these patients overcome their injuries and navigate their insurance claims, it has become apparent to me that many people don’t know what their rights are when they have been injured in an accident.

Know your rights:

By law, every Oregon auto insurance policy has Personal Injury Protection, which covers medical expenses

You are covered by personal injury protection regardless of who is at fault.

  • Your medical expenses are covered by your Personal Injury Protection for up to 1 year after the date of your auto accident.

Listen to your body:

Common symptoms from auto injuries include:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arms or legs
  • Memory loss
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Blurry vision

If you were recently involved in an auto accident in Beaverton OR or surronding areas, contact us to make an appointment and start healing now.

Yours in health,

Dr. Thompson
