Car accidents are one of the leading causes of bodily injury in Missouri and throughout the country. There are many different types of car accidents involving a variety of circumstances. The resulting damage of a car accident can range from barely visible cosmetic damage to your vehicle, to bodily injuries ranging from minor to severe, to even death.Car accidents are additional confusing due to the fact that each state has its own policies on insurance and fault. Some states are no-fault states, which is where it doesn't matter who caused the accident; your own insurance covers your damages. Missouri is an at-fault state. Specifically, Missouri has a pure comparative negligence law. Each person or organization is liable for the percent of the damages they caused. Because there are so many complicated pieces to car accident bodily injuries, you should have a car accident lawyer representing you.
Truck accidents are a type of motor vehicle accident, but they are distinct from normal passenger vehicle accidents. Big rigs and semi trucks weigh tens of thousands of pounds. When an accident happens involving a truck and a smaller vehicle, the damage can be devastating.

Some professions are naturally dangerous and more likely to cause injuries. Especially labor-intensive jobs or jobs involving heavy machinery, like construction jobs can present a risk of injury. Common work-related bodily injuries include falls, cuts and lacerations, strain from repetitive motion, exposure to toxic chemicals, falling objects, and crushing and running over.
Most of the time, dogs are harmless. Unfortunately, however, sometimes, dogs bite people. Dogs can be unpredictable. Bodily injuries from dog bites, in some cases, can lead to infections and illnesses as well as scars and permanent disability. If you are bitten by a dog, you may have a personal injury case against the owner or person who was responsible for controlling the dog at the time of the accident.
Slip and Fall
You can slip and fall almost anywhere. We have all tripped due to our own clumsiness at one point or another. When a slip and fall turns into serious bodily injury, you may have a personal injury case. To have a personal injury case for you slip and fall, it must have been caused by another party's negligence. A common example of a slip and fall case is when an employee is mopping the floor in a business, and they fail to put out a "wet floor" sign. If you slip on the floor because you didn't realize it was wet, and you receive some type of bodily injury in the fall, you have a slip and fall case.
