Common Injury Types

While every accident is unique, our lawyers have discovered that a substantial number of the Washington, MO accident victims who work with us have suffered similar personal injuries. 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 shattered bones that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most often 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 in real life.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people believe these to be minor injuries, these can present the risk of infection if not adequately dealt with.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the force 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 present problems sleeping and constant headaches. Most people who have been in accidents ignore the likelihood that they could have suffered a TBI, and thus delay treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most often happens in more severe accidents, like falls from high platforms or high-speed car accidents. The forces from these accidents can affect your organs, and without rapid treatment, these injuries can be life-threatening.
