Boone, MO (December 9, 2021) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Boone County left one man injured. At around 6:10 p.m., on December 7, emergency crews were called to the site of a crash on US Highway 63.
Reports from authorities show that a 2020 Terra Gator Fertilizer spreader collided with a 2003 Buick Regal on US Highway 63 just south of Route CC. The crash left both vehicles with moderate damage.
The driver of the Buick, 59-year-old Brent Herbel, sustained moderate injuries in the crash. Herbel was transported to University Hospital for medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Brent Herbel at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
Not being able to work while being overwhelmed with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills not only impacts victims but their families as well. It does not seem right that victims who are injured in accidents as a result of the actions of others are forced to spend substantial amounts of money on treatment. Victims harmed in crashes are able to recover compensation to help alleviate some of the financial burdens they endure from their accidents. Some of the most common damages victims are able to recover include compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Vehicle repairs
- Pain and suffering
Rather than moving forward after an accident alone, victims should consult with a responsive car accident attorney in Boone who can help educate them with regards to legal options available and help them to exercise their rights and collect the compensation they need and deserve.
