Do You Know the Most Common Causes of Missouri Catastrophic Injuries?

Missouri catastrophic injuries can occur in many different types of accidents. However, certain types of incidents most often result in catastrophic injuries. It is important both to know the risks that you face and to know what to do if you have been seriously injured.

The Most Common Cause of Missouri Catastrophic Injuries is Car Accidents

A recent study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine found that car accidents were the most common cause of deaths from serious injuries. Other common causes of serious injuries and fatalities resulting from accidents included:

  • Drug-related poisonings
  • Shootings
  • Machinery accidents
  • Suffocation
  • Drowning
  • Falls
  • Cuts

You can’t predict when you will be involved in one of these accidents, but knowing about the consequences may help you be cautious and avoid situations that can cause you serious harm.

Know What to Do if You Suffer a Missouri Catastrophic Injury

If you have already been seriously hurt in one of the accidents listed above or another type of accident, then it is important to know more about your rights and your possible recovery. You may have the right to file a personal injury claim and to recover damages if someone else’s negligent or deliberate actions caused you to suffer a catastrophic injury. Your recovery may include compensation for your past, current, and future:

  • Medical expenses
  • Out-of-pocket costs.
  • Lost income
  • Pain
  • Suffering
  • Other damages
