Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our attorneys have found that many of the Wellsville, MO accident victims who work with us have suffered similar personal injuries. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on fingers or toes that serve more as a distraction than anything, to painful compound fractures that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most often is caused by car accidents, and happens when a sudden force or change in direction forces muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would under usual circumstances.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people believe these to be minor injuries, these can present the risk of infection if not immediately treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and violent impact of falls or auto accidents often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not treated properly, TBIs can reduce brain function and potentially cause insomnia and constant headaches. Many people who have been in accidents brush off the possibility that they could have sustained a TBI, and thus do not get therapy until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly occurs in more severe accidents, like high-speed car accidents or falls from great heights. The forces from these accidents can affect your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
