What Damages Can You Recover For a Personal Injury Case?

Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our lawyers have noticed that many of the Clayton, MO accident victims who visit us have dealt with similar personal ailments. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on extremities that exits more as a distraction than anything, to agonizing compound fractures that necessitate extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most often is caused by car accidents, and is defined as 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 think that these are 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 causes concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can reduce brain function and potentially present problems sleeping and constant headaches. A large number of people who have been in accidents are not aware of the likelihood that they could have suffered a TBI, and thus do not get treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly happens in more serious accidents, like falls from high platforms or high-speed car accidents. The forces from these accidents can damage your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can be life-threatening.
