Car Accidents in Wyoming

Every year, we see hundreds of victims sustained life-threatening injuries in automobile collisions across the state of Wyoming. The unpredictable terrain and sprawling roadways throughout our state present exceptional challenges to motorists. This is particularly true in cases where drivers are unfamiliar with the area. 

When innocent parties are hurt in motor 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:

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

These and other serious injuries are extremely demanding. Those harmed are often required to undergo emergency medical treatment for their injuries. In some cases, injured parties 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.
