Car Accidents in Wyoming

Motor vehicle accidents in the state of Wyoming leave countless people with devastating injuries each year. The rough and rugged terrain and sprawling roadways throughout our state present exceptional difficulties to motorists. This is especially true in cases where drivers are unfamiliar with the area. When people are harmed in vehicle collisions, they are often rushed to area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. We see many people left with an array of injuries that impact their health and wellbeing.

Some of the most common injuries sustained by victims in Wyoming car accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Cuts, scrapes, and abrasions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and soft tissue injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Loss of limbs

These and other serious injuries often require immediate and long-term care. Those injured in crashes are often required to undergo emergency medical treatment for their injuries. In some cases, victims have to go through months of therapy and rehabilitation. Regrettably, not everyone is able to fully recover. Instead, they are left with permanent disabilities that impact their health and wellbeing indefinitely.
