Common Injury Types

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

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on fingers or toes that are more as a nuisance than anything, to painful compound fractures 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 causes muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would in normal conditions.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people consider these minor injuries, these can potentially cause infection if not immediately treated.
  • 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 lower brain function and potentially cause insomnia and constant headaches. Many people who have been in accidents are not aware of the likelihood that they might have sustained a TBI, and thus do not get therapy until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most often happens 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 urgent treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
