Common Car Accident Injuries

Car Accident injuries can range in severity from minor bumps and bruises to major injuries that can include broken bones, serious concussions and even death. Here are a list of the most common injuries that can result from a car accident:

  • Whiplash - Whiplash Injuries are one of the most common types of car accident injuries and involve the head and neck. The force is created when a vehicle in motion is struck from a direction that it isn't traveling. These types of injuries can lead to neck pain, back issues, spinal issues, tenderness in the shoulders and many other medical issues.
  • Concussions - Concussions are caused by the forceful motion of the brain inside the skull, to the point that bruising or swelling can occur. Concussions can lead to loss of motor functions, loss of memory and can even be paralyzing.
  • Broken Bones - Broken Bones are caused by either abrupt force that shatters the bone, or an amount of weight or pressure that causes the bone to bend and break. Car Accidents can easily lead to broken bones due to the force involved in the accidents. Broken bones can take some time to heal and often require lengthy amounts of rehabilitation before they are back to 100%.
  • Internal Bleeding - Internal Bleeding is never immediately apparent, but can quickly cause death if not seen to immediately. Internal bleeding occurs when the organs inside your body are either punctured or rupture from the force of an accident.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries - Spinal Injuries occur when your spine attempts to control the motion of your body against an extreme amount of force. The spinal cord is integral to the motor functions of your body. Any damage to your spine can often result in serious injuries throughout other areas of the body.

Missouri and Illinois both have their own auto accident-related problems, traffic laws and roadway safety efforts. Information about the traffic accidents that occur and the injuries they cause are public information. You can learn more about Missouri and Illinois safety policies and campaigns to help protect yourself and your family and make the St. Louis and Missouri roads safer for everybody. When you are seriously injured in an auto accident, call Burger Law's car accident lawyers immediately at (314) 648-8348.

When you are injured in a car accident, the first step you should always take is going to a doctor to make sure you are ok. No matter how tough you may think you are, your injury could be life-threatening. After you have received the necessary medical attention immediately after your accident, speak with our car accident firm in St. Louis to make sure that the other party is held fully liable and that all of your bills and needs are taken care of.

Tough on Insurance Companies

Winning Your Car Accident Claim

An auto accident claim begins the second the accident happens. And while it is also important for all plaintiffs to obtain prompt and thorough medical treatment right away, a car crash lawyer in St. Louis should be the next person you speak to. Not only can an experienced lawyer obtain the evidence and resources necessary to obtain damages, but they can also help guide you through the legal process and make sure that the insurance companies do not take advantage of you.

When Do I Need a Lawyer?

While working with insurance may seem like a good idea at the time, it is important to remember that insurance companies are looking out for their own best interests and NOT yours. Though straightforward accidents that do not result in injury can often be resolved reasonably without the involvement of a personal injury lawyer, there are certain times a car accident victim should always enlist the help of an experienced professional. With this in mind, if your car accident left you seriously injured or if any of the following statements are true, it is imperative that you seek help from the experienced St. Louis car accident lawyers with Burger Law. When you hire a Burger Law car crash lawyer, we advocate on your behalf and ensure that the insurance companies do not get away with bullying you to accept an unjust and incomplete settlement.

  • Someone was injured.

    Any time an accident results in injuries of any kind, the loss of life or severe property damage to your vehicle or other property, you need a great car accident lawyer like the personal injury attorneys of Burger Law on your side. Your car accident lawyer has the resources and knowledge to adequately assess the true total value of your case—something individuals without extensive car accident claim experience will not be able to do.

  • The insurance company is not playing nice.

    If the insurance company is paying for all of your medical bills and also seeing to the replacement of your vehicle and any lost wages, then you may not need to pursue a car accident claim. If they are not working with you and are trying to get you to settle for partial medical coverage, or are trying to intimidate you or put blame on you for the accident, then stop speaking with them immediately and call our car accident attorneys now at (314) 648-8348.

  • Your injuries have long-term effects.

    If you are seriously injured and your injury requires medication, lengthy rehabilitation, physical therapy, surgery or other medical treatment strategies to bring you back to full health, then you need an attorney to ensure you get all of the benefits you need in perpetuity.

  • There is disagreement about who is at fault.

    If the other driver refuses to admit they caused the accident and is willing to dispute you, then you absolutely need to speak to a car accident lawyer in St. Louis to protect your claim. If the other driver did admit responsibility and they are cooperating, then you may not need a car accident lawyer.

  • There are complications to the case

    Any time your case involves disputed facts, multiple parties, insurance coverage issues or other factors that are not straightforward, you need a skilled car accident attorney to help you prove your case. If there are multiple parties involved, you were hit by a commercial vehicle or the accident was a hit and run—in all these situations, you need to work with a lawyer to make sure you get the best possible outcome for you as the victim.

If you are not injured and you feel that the insurance company is being cooperative and fair with you, you may choose to complete your claim without having to consult a lawyer. However, if you are hurt, the insurance company is fighting you, or the other driver is seeking a claim against you then you must speak with one of our Car Accident Lawyers in St. Louis as soon as possible.

Experience Matters

Insurance companies profit by not paying out claims. However, a Burger Law St. Louis car accident lawyer is experienced in arguing the legal theory of the case and negotiating with insurance companies to get injured individuals the compensation they deserve.
