Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our attorneys have found that many of the Town and Country, MO accident victims who work with us have dealt with similar personal injuries. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on extremities that serve more as a nuisance than anything, to agonizing compound fractures that necessitate extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is an ailment that most commonly 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 in normal conditions.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people believe these to be minor injuries, these can present the risk of infection if not adequately treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and violent impact of car accidents or falls often causes concussions or other head injuries. If not treated properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially present problems sleeping and recurring headaches. A large number of accident victims are not aware of the possibility that they might have suffered a TBI, and thus delay therapy until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most often 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 rapid treatment, these injuries can turn into life-threatening ones.
