Car Accidents in Missouri
Being involved in a vehicle collision can change your life forever. We see many people left with significant injuries due to crashes in our state. While any type of injury can be devastating, there are some injuries that have a devastating impact on the quality of life of victims.
Limb loss is probably the most visible type of injury that can result from a car accident. When an accident results in the amputation of a limb, it can be extremely difficult to adjust to life without that limb. In addition to the physical challenges that come with losing a limb, there is also the emotional toll that comes with it. Many people who lose a limb feel like they have lost part of their identity.
Quadriplegia is another serious injury that can result from a car accident. Quadriplegia is paralysis that affects all four limbs and the torso. This type of paralysis can be complete or incomplete. Incomplete quadriplegia means that some movement is still possible in the affected limbs, while complete quadriplegia means that no movement is possible. Quadriplegia can be extremely debilitating and make it very difficult for someone to live independently.
Internal organ damage is another common injury that can occur in a car accident. This type of damage can range from minor to severe, depending on the extent of the damage. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible if you suspect you have internal organ damage so that it can be treated appropriately. Left untreated, these injuries can be life-threatening.
