Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our lawyers have noticed that many of the Jefferson City, 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 extremities that serve more as a distraction than anything, to agonizing shattered bones that necessitate extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is an ailment that most commonly occurs in car accidents, and happens when a sudden force or change in direction causes muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would under usual circumstances.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people think that these are minor injuries, these can potentially cause 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 problems sleeping and recurring headaches. Many people who have been in accidents are not aware of the possibility that they might have suffered a TBI, and thus do not get treatment 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.
