Head and Spinal Injuries
Head injuries can be very serious. You can suffer from
TBI or traumatic brain injury and not even know it.
People think you have to be knocked unconscious to suffer
a concussion, but that is not true. You can suffer a
concussion from a collision that can result in memory
loss, confusion and other medical problems. Also, spinal
injuries do not always appear immediately. You should
never settle a claim from an accident until your doctor
has declared you medically stationary and you feel like
you are back to where you were prior to the accident.
These injuries can also result in physical trauma such
that you end up needing future medical care and never
return to your pre-accident life. Portland Attorneys

An accident is a specific, identifiable,
unexpected, unusual and unintended external event which
occurs in a particular time and place, without apparent
or deliberate cause but with marked effects. It implies
a generally negative probabilistic outcome which may
have been avoided or prevented had circumstances leading
up to the accident been recognized, and acted upon,
prior to its occurrence.
Narrowly defined, the designation may refer only to
the event, while not including the circumstances (facts
surrounding) or results of the event; i.e., ‘accident’
is constrained to an immediate incident, the occurrence
of which results in an unplanned outcome. In common
use, however, ‘accident’ may include the
entire interacting circumstantial framework (chance,
pre-existing, or uncontrolled dynamically developing
conditions; commonplace actions; random time and place;
participants; etc.) leading up to, including, and resulting
from, the accident's immediate occurrence. Experts in
the field of injury prevention avoid use of the term
"accident" because they look at these incidents
from the perspective of epidemiology - predictable and
Accidents of particularly common types (auto, fire,
etc.) are investigated to identify how to avoid them
in the future. This is sometimes called root cause analysis,
but does not generally apply to accidents that cannot
be deterministically predicted. For example, a root
cause of an uncommon and purely random accident may
never be identified, and thus future similar accidents
Physical examples include, e.g., unintended collisions
or falls, being injured by touching something sharp,
hot, or electrical, or ingesting poison. Non-physical
examples are, e.g, unintentionally revealing a secret
or otherwise saying something incorrectly, forgetting
an appointment, etc.
The informal term "freak accident" typically
refers to an unfortunate and improbable event that seems
exceedingly unlikely to happen by chance. In extreme
contexts, the term may also imply doubt, ambiguity or
suspicion about an accident event's cause.
Colloquially considered negative, 'happy' accidents
with positive results are also possible.
The injury prevention community strongly discourages
use of the word "accident" to describe events
that cause injury in attempt to highlight the predictable
and preventable nature of most injuries. Preferred words
are more descriptive of the event itself rather than
of its unintentional nature (e.g., crash, collision,
incident, drowning, fall, etc.)
