Car Accidents in Missouri
Every day, countless types of accidents take place that leave victims with severe injuries. Some common types of accidents that we see here in Missouri include:
- Rear-end collisions: These accidents typically occur when one driver is following another too closely and rear-ends them when they brake.
- T-bone collisions: These accidents happen when one car hits the side of another, typically at an intersection.
- Head-on collisions: These accidents are very serious and often fatal, as they involve two vehicles crashing directly into each other head-on at high speeds.
- Single-car accidents: These can occur for a variety of reasons, such as hitting a deer or losing control on a slick road surface.
- Multi-car pileups: These often occur during inclement weather and involve multiple vehicles colliding with each other in a chain reaction.
The unfortunate truth is that people involved in any type of these accidents can suffer from severe injuries. Whiplash is a common injury that can lead to pain and stiffness. It can also limit a victim’s range of motion and make it difficult to perform various tasks.
Neck and back injuries are also common in car accidents. These can range from minor sprains and strains to more serious injuries such as herniated discs or spinal cord damage.
Head injuries are another potential consequence of car accidents. Concussions, skull fractures, and traumatic brain injury can all occur if the head strikes an object during a collision.
Broken bones are also a common injury in car accidents. The force of a collision can cause bones to break or fracture, particularly in the arms or legs.
If you have been in a car accident, it is important to see a doctor even if you do not think you are injured. It is important to get treatment right away and to be him documenting the injuries. After suffering injuries in an accident, you may have legal options available to help you move forward.
Missouri is an at-fault state for car accidents. This means that if you are involved in a car accident, the other driver may be held responsible for damages to your vehicle and any injuries you sustain. If you are found to be at fault for the accident, you may be required to pay for the other driver’s damages and injuries.
