Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our attorneys have noticed that most of the Chamois, MO accident victims who visit us have had similar personal injuries. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on hands or feet that are more as a distraction than anything, to painful shattered bones that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most commonly is caused by car accidents, and happens when a sudden force or change in direction causes muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would in normal conditions.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people believe these to be minor injuries, these can present the risk of infection if not immediately dealt with.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and violent impact of car accidents or falls often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially cause insomnia and constant headaches. Many accident victims brush off the likelihood that they might have suffered a TBI, and thus put off treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly happens in more severe accidents, like falls from high platforms or high-speed car accidents. The forces from these accidents can affect your organs, and without urgent treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
