Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, motor vehicle accidents 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.
There are thousands of people who sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries from their accidents. These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to go through endless medical care. People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work. Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after.
