Common Injury Types

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

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on hands or feet that are more as a distraction than anything, to painful compound fractures that necessitate extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most commonly occurs in 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 normal conditions.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people believe these to be minor injuries, these can run the risk of infection if not immediately treated.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force and sudden 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 present insomnia and constant headaches. Many accident victims are not aware of the likelihood that they could have sustained a TBI, and thus put off treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly happens 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.
