Car Accidents in Missouri
Auto wrecks can have an immediate and overwhelming impact on your life. This is especially true if you have suffered a serious injury as a result of a crash. Unfortunately, we see many people left with severe injuries as a result of crashes in our state.
Some of the most serious injuries that victims suffer from in crashes across the state include:
- Spinal cord injuries: The spinal cord is a vital part of the body, and when it is damaged, it can cause paralysis. In some cases, victims of spinal cord injuries may be able to recover some movement and sensation with rehabilitation, but in others, the paralysis may be permanent.
- Loss of limbs: This can happen if the victim is ejected from the vehicle or if their limbs are trapped in the wreckage. In some cases, amputation may be necessary to save the victim’s life. Even if amputation is not required, victims of limb loss often face significant challenges and may require prosthetic devices to regain some level of mobility.
- Internal organ damage: These can range from minor bruises and cuts to vital organs, to more serious organ damage. Internal bleeding is one of the most dangerous types of internal injuries, as it can lead to death if not treated quickly. Victims of internal injuries should always seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident.
