Car Accidents in Missouri
Every year, tens of thousands of people in Missouri are left with injuries following motor vehicle accidents. These accidents are often unpredictable. However, the consequences can have a negative impact on the mental, physical, and financial well-being of those involved.
Although no two accidents are alike, we see many similarities when it comes to the consequences they have. In many cases, victims are left with painful injuries that require both immediate and long-term care. Suffering spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even back injuries can result in the need of long-term care. Many people who suffer severe injuries are forced out of work indefinitely.
