Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, motor vehicle crashes impact the lives of thousands of people across our state. Not only do people involved in collisions have their lives disrupted, but they are often left with significant financial, mental, and physical consequences as well. In many cases, victims sustain injuries that require extensive medical treatment. When victims break their bones or suffer traumatic head or neck injuries, they often need multiple surgeries and have to spend months off their feet or go to therapy.
The time following a collision is full of uncertainty. In numerous cases, accident victims are left with serious injuries that demand medical attention both immediately and long-term.
