Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our lawyers have found that many of the Maryland Heights, MO accident victims who visit us have had similar personal ailments. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can vary from small breaks on hands or feet that serve more as a nuisance than anything, to agonizing shattered bones that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most often occurs in car accidents, and happens when a sudden force or change in direction forces 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 potentially cause infection if not properly cared for.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force and violent impact of falls or auto accidents often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not treated properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially present problems sleeping and recurring headaches. Many people who have been in accidents ignore the possibility that they could have suffered a TBI, and thus put off therapy 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 affect your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
