Our thoughts are with the victims injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Wyoming

The impact of traffic-related incidents can be instant. In many cases, injured victims are thrown off their paths completely and unable to make it to their destinations. Crashes that end in injuries force thousands of people into hospitals across our state each year. Although we hope that those harmed will recover, this is not always the truth. Instead, many victims are left with truly life-changing injuries, like:

  • Neck and soft tissue injuries
  • Severe back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

These and other life-changing injuries often force those harmed to go through months of treatment. In some case, injured victims have to go through multiple surgeries, stay in hospitals and nursing homes, and go through months of rehabilitation. Some people never fully recover from their injuries. Instead, they are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work indefinitely. When victims are hurt in accidents caused by negligent drivers, they may have legal options available to help them recover.
