Car Crash Facts

Car Crash Facts

St. Louis car crashes and auto accidents everywhere are most commonly caused by negligence. We will build your case and prove the at-fault party's negligence and liability in your accident case. Your Burger Law car crash lawyer will use their knowledge of state laws and scientific facts to take on your unique car accident claim. We have perfected distinct legal strategies from how to gather evidence and present your claim to how to value your damages based on the distinguishing factors of each case.

Five facts regarding traffic accidents:

  1. Car Accident Contributing Factors: According to the Missouri Highway State Patrol, there are many different factors that contribute to car accidents. In Missouri, 22,474 car crashes involved speeding, 5,976 involved Alcohol, 32,763 involved younger drivers, 42,747 involved older drivers, 12,082 involved a commercial vehicle, and 2,253 involved motorcycles.
  2. More Drivers = More Accidents: The more drivers on the road, the higher the chances are of an accident. During the height of the COVID19 pandemic, fewer cars and drivers took to the roads. This resulted in fewer car crashes in Missouri and the US. Sadly, however, the collisions that did occur were more often fatal. A total of 38,824 car crash deaths in the United States in 2020 made the loss of life that year the highest it had been since 2007. Since then, the number of cars on the road has returned to pre-pandemic numbers.
  3. Teens Text, Drive and Crash: Texting and driving is, by many accounts, more dangerous than drunk driving. 80 percent of teens and young adults text and drive. Distracted driving such as texting while driving injures more than 1,000 people in the United States every day.
  4. Car Crashes Wreck Wallets: Traffic accidents cost our country around $871 billion a year including $55 billion for auto accident deaths. In Missouri, traffic accident deaths cost $1.31 billion in medical costs and costs related to time off work alone.
  5. Living Fast Kills - Speeding, a form of aggressive driving, is a leading cause of traffic accidents. More than half of all car crashes are caused by aggressive driving behavior like speeding. At least 27% of traffic accident deaths happen due to speeding, making the behavior the leading cause of highway crash fatalities. Driving ten miles over the speed limit increased the chance of a collision by nearly ten percent.

Following safe driving practices while on the road keeps those around you safe on the road and, more importantly, helps reduce your risk of being injured or killed in a car crash. Getting safely to your destination should be your only concern. If you have been seriously injured in a car accident in Missouri, and that accident was caused by another driver or other party, call (314) 500-HURT or message our car crash lawyers in St. Louis immediately. We will fight on your behalf to ensure your claim is taken seriously and fully pursued.

What Are Common Injuries in Car Crashes and How Severe Are They?

What Are Common Injuries in Car Crashes and How Severe Are They?

Car crashes can lead to all kinds of injuries on almost any part of the body. The severity of injuries in a car accident range from minor bruises, serious but treatable injuries such as broken bones, permanent disability such as complete paralysis and even death. Below are some of the most common kinds of car accident injuries.

  • Whiplash - Whiplash Injuries are one of the most common types of car accident injuries, harming the head and neck. When a car strikes another car or an obstacle on the road, the momentum of the vehicle can rapidly change. At the same time, the passengers' bodies continue to move in the direction of the vehicle until they are forcibly stopped and then suddenly forced backward, causing and extreme and rapid forward and backward whip-like motion of the head and neck. Though often not severe or permanent, whiplash injuries can lead to neck pain, back issues, spinal cord damage, tenderness in the shoulders and many other medical issues.
  • Concussions - Concussions, much like whiplash injuries, are caused by force and result from the brain bouncing back and forth inside the cranium. Concussions come with a wide range of various symptoms and can also lead to loss of motor function, loss of memory and even paralysis. Often car accident victims are not immediately aware that they have suffered a concussion, but the injury can be serious. That is why it is so critical that you seek a medical examination after being in a car accident.
  • Broken Bones - Broken bones, referred to as fractures in the medical community, are very common in car accidents because of the traumatic amount of force that can be applied to the bones and the potential to collide or be struck by an object in the vehicle or the vehicle itself. The severity of your broken fracture injury depends on the bone or bones that are affected and the kind of break you sustained. A stress fracture is a small crack on a bone (so small that doctors commonly fail to detect them in x-ray imaging) and is mild to moderate in severity while a compression fracture where the bone is crushed or a comminuted bone broken into multiple pieces including fragments are much more serious.
  • Internal Bleeding - Internal bleeding is a serious ailment. Such an injury is not always immediately apparent, but can quickly result in death if it is not treated right away. Internal bleeding occurs when the organs inside your body are either punctured or rupture from the force of an accident. In high-force collisions, the impact can cause blunt trauma, tearing or crushing blood vessels internally. Nearly any organ in the body can be damaged by internal bleeding but some are more serious than others. Bleeding inside the skull and around the lungs, heart and abdomen are the most dangerous places for internal bleeding to occur. While some forms of internal bleeding are not life threatening and will heal on their own, it is not worth the risk to forego medical attention. Severe cases are medical emergencies that may require extensive medical procedures like surgery to manage.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries - The spinal cord is essential to the nervous system. It is responsible for communicating information from your brain to the rest of every part of your body and from your body back to the brain, making it integral to motor function. Without the spinal cord intact, the brain may not be able to command your limbs to move or may not receive sensory information from those limbs. Paralysis ensues. Loss of spinal cord function is a serious and life-altering injury. Of spinal cord injuries, the severity and extent of the disability depends on what part of the spinal cord is affected. A complete spinal cord injury causes permanent loss of use while an incomplete injury happens when the spinal cord is only partially damaged and you may be able to recover use with the proper medical treatment.
