Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, we see tens of thousands of people injured in motor vehicle accidents across our state. Some of the most common injuries that victims suffer from include:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and soft tissue injuries
- Internal organ damage
When people suffer from these and other serious injuries, they often had to go through surgery. Many people require long-term care, such as therapy and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, medical costs can be significant. There is also no guarantee that a person will fully recover from their injuries.
In many cases, people suffer serious injuries and accidents due to the negligence of others. We see countless people injured in accidents caused by:
- Motorists who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Motorists who speed
- Motorists who are distracted by their cell phones
- Motorists who fail to yield to others sharing the road
- Motorists who run red lights and pass out signs
