According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, car accidents are a leading cause of injuries in the state of Missouri. Injuries from car accidents can range from minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and burns.
Broken bones occur in car accidents when the force of the impact is too much for the bones to withstand. Spinal cord injuries can also occur in vehicle collisions, and can result in paralysis or other serious disabilities. Burn injuries are also possible in car accidents, especially if there is a fire involved.
