What Damages Can Be Recovered For an Injury Case?

Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our lawyers have found that a substantial number of the O'Fallon, MO accident victims who work with us have suffered 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 distraction than anything, to painful compound fractures that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is an ailment that most often 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 think that these are minor injuries, these can present the risk of infection if not properly treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force and sudden impact of falls or auto accidents often causes concussions or other head injuries. If not treated properly, TBIs can reduce brain function and potentially cause problems sleeping and constant headaches. Many accident victims ignore the possibility that they could have suffered a TBI, and thus do not get treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most often occurs in more serious accidents, like falls from high platforms or high-speed car accidents. The forces from these accidents can cause damage to your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
