Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our attorneys have discovered that a substantial number of the Springfield, MO accident victims who visit us have dealt with similar personal ailments. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can vary from small breaks on hands or feet that are more as a nuisance than anything, to painful shattered bones that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is an ailment that most commonly occurs in car accidents, and is defined as when a sudden force or change in direction causes muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would in real life.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people think that these are minor injuries, these can present the risk of infection if not adequately treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force and sudden impact of car accidents or falls often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not treated properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially present problems sleeping and constant headaches. A large number of accident victims ignore the possibility that they might have sustained a TBI, and thus delay treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly happens in more serious accidents, like high-speed car accidents or falls from great heights. The forces from these accidents can damage your organs, and without immediate treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
