Common Injury Types

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

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on extremities that are more as a distraction than anything, to agonizing shattered bones that require extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most commonly is caused by car accidents, and is defined as when a sudden force or change in direction forces muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would in real life.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people consider these minor injuries, these can run the risk of infection if not immediately dealt with.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and violent impact of falls or auto accidents often causes concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can reduce brain function and potentially cause insomnia and recurring headaches. Many people who have been in accidents are not aware of the likelihood that they could have suffered a TBI, and thus delay 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 affect your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
