What Are The Most Common Fatal Injuries In Car Accidents?

Car accidents happen often and, in some cases, will lead to serious injuries. In some motor vehicle collisions, injuries are minor and may be resolved after a short medical treatment; however, injuries can be fatal in other cases. Some of the most common injuries that often result in fatalities include broken ribs, spinal cord injuries, or internal bleeding. Injuries that result from head-on collisions, rollovers, or driver/passenger-side impacts lead to the most deaths in car accidents. When you’ve been involved in a collision with another driver, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Even if you feel fine after an accident, some symptoms of injuries can take several days to appear. If you lost a loved one in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence, your family is entitled to compensation.

At Krause and Kinsman Law Firm, one of our Kansas City car accident attorneys can ensure that your family is appropriately compensated. Our lawyers understand that you or your family will incur a wide range of expenses after an accident. Keep careful records of property damage to the vehicle, loss of household income, burial costs, or medical costs. When you elect to hire one of our attorneys, they will use all of these records to build your case, establish liability, and secure the justice you deserve.
