Auto Accidents in Missouri
Every year, auto wrecks in Missouri send more than 55,000 people to area hospitals with injuries. In many cases, victims are rushed from the scene of their accidents to local hospitals for emergency medical care. After going through emergency surgery, many victims have to spend weeks off work to recover. Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.
In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:
- Drivers who are speeding
- Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
