What types of injuries do car accident victims in Blue Springs suffer?

Every car accident injury requires immediate medical care. While many injuries from car accidents do heal, many victims have injuries that never fully heal causing a lifetime of pain. For victims of catastrophic injuries, their lives are never the same as before the accident. Our Blue Springs car accident lawyers represent victims with all types of serious injuries including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries. TBIs can cause physical and emotional damage. They also cause cognitive damage that can prevent a victim from working, socializing, and functioning. TBI victims often need treatment from many different types of doctors and therapists – for the rest of their lives.
  • Spinal cord damage and paralysis. Damage to the spine, nerves, and disks can prevent someone from ever walking again. Most spinal cord victims live with agonizing pain. Many need to work with neurosurgeons, neurologists, pain management doctors, and rehabilitative therapists.
  • Burn injuries. Victims of third-degree burns from car accidents may require skin grafts and plastic surgery. Many victims need to treat with psychologists for their emotional scars.
  • Amputation/loss of limb. Some car accidents in Blue Springs may cause the amputation of part or all of a leg or arm.
  • Internal injuries. Car accidents such as head-on collisions may cause internal bleeding and damage to your lungs, kidney, and other parts of your anatomy.

Other serious injuries include muscle, tissue, ligament, and nerve damage, neck, back, and shoulder pain, vision loss, hearing loss, and other injuries.

As the data for Missouri shows, many car accidents are fatal. We file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the family members when a loved one dies.

What are the main causes of car accidents in Blue Springs?

Most car accidents are due to driver negligence or defective vehicle parts. We work with investigators, conduct extensive discovery of the parties and witnesses, and employ other experts such as traffic reconstruction experts if necessary – to show how and why a car accident occurred in Blue Springs.

Some common causes of car accidents are:

  • Driver intoxication
  • Driving while distracted, such as texting or using a smartphone while driving
  • Speeding and other traffic violations
  • Failure of the driver to adjust his/her driving in bad weather
  • Failure to slow down in heavy traffic
  • Driver fatigue
  • Defective car parts, such as brakes, tires, steering mechanisms, lights, airbags, and seatbelts

In most car accidents, we need to show the driver or other defendant that caused your accident was negligent. In defective car part cases, we need to show the car part was defective, the defect caused the accident, and the accident caused your injuries.

Who is liable for a car accident in Blue Springs?
