Car Accidents in Missouri
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can be life-altering. There are many instances where people are left with painful injuries that drastically limit the number of things they can do. When people suffer from spinal cord injuries, they often lose the ability to use their arms and legs. When people suffer from back injuries, they often struggle to lift heavy objects and have a problem stooping over and sitting down.
When people suffer from neck and soft tissue injuries, they often experience a range of motion limitations. These and other injuries not only dramatically impact the lives of those harmed, but they cost tens of thousands of dollars to treat. In some cases, victims can expect Hospital and surgical bills that are more than $100,000. Dealing with the impacts of a motor vehicle accident is not something that many people are able to do.
