I'm stumped on the last clue in another cryptic crossword. The clue is

Injured person's mostly easy-going

The (confirmed) cross-clues give C_S_A_T_. Normally I can guess at a part or at least the structure, but I've got nothing here.

CASUALTY is mostly CASUAL

The cryptic part of the clue doesn't seem to cover the whole word, as far as I can tell.

You can look up possible combinations for a word like this one using a Regular Expression search at http://www.dict.org--select one of the two regular expression search options available, and type in the incomplete word, say ^c.s.a.t.$, in the search field. I find it most helpful indeed when I'm stuck.
