Portland Trucking Accident Lawyers Share the Signs of a Brain Injury by an Oregon Trucking Accident
There are many possible causes of a brain injury, but an Oregon trucking accident is one of the most common and most likely types. This is because an 18 wheeler wreck is powerful and collisions are typically explosive. Victims in smaller, passenger vehicles can be seriously injured or wrongfully killed in even low or medium-speed collisions. But many trucking accidents occur in high-speed collisions on highways and interstates throughout Oregon, including in Portland, Bend, and Deschutes County. Our Portland trucking accident lawyers know that brain injuries can be one of the most debilitating types of personal injuries.
