Car Accidents During a Rainy Winter

Even though Portland, OR gets less rain than other western cities, it still boasts an average annual rainfall of more than 39 inches, with many days featuring a light drizzle that seem to go on and on and on. More than being a minor irritant, rain also impairs driving. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, 46% of weather-related crashes and 52% of weather-related injuries in the country are attributed to rain. When wet pavement is thrown into the mix the numbers soar even higher.

A car accident injury should be taken seriously. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle crash, you need to see a chiropractor right away. Even if you feel perfectly fine right after, you may have sustained a car accident injury that will have a lasting impact on your ability to function and enjoy life.

The most common types of injuries are those affecting the soft, or connective, tissues - muscles, ligaments, and tendons - of the body. One possible soft tissue injury after a car wreck is whiplash. This painful neck injury occurs after an abrupt backwards then forward motion of the head, and, sometimes, victims do not experience any symptoms for 24 hours or more after the accident.
