Car Accidents in Missouri
Every year, serious auto accidents take place in the state of Missouri. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people are hurt as a result of crashes every year. There are many cases where people are ejected from their vehicles. Being ejected from a vehicle can increase the severity of injuries that the victim suffered.
For one, ejection from a vehicle means that the individual is no longer protected by the metal frame of the car. This exposes them to a greater risk of being hit by oncoming traffic or flying debris. Additionally, individuals who are ejected from their vehicles are often thrown with great force, which can lead to broken bones or other serious injuries.
People who are involved in accidents often suffer severe injuries. Some of the leading injuries that are reported in car crashes across our state include:
- Spinal cord injuries.
- Traumatic brain injuries.
- Severe cuts and lacerations.
- Internal organ injuries.
- Severe compound fractures.
Being ejected from a vehicle just increases the chances that these injuries will become serious and life-threatening.
