Car Accidents in Missouri
Every year, tens of thousands of people in Missouri are left with injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents. People who are involved in accidents that have two or more vehicles are more likely to suffer from more severe injuries. Some of the most common injuries that we see following automobile accidents in our state include:
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe lacerations that damage nerves and muscles
When people suffer from severe injuries, they often require extensive medical care. Unfortunately, the costs of treatment can be significant. It is also common for victims to have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on hospitalization, surgery, medication, and more.
