Car Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents in the state of Missouri leave tens of thousands of people with injuries each year. In many cases, victims are rushed from the scene of their accidents to local hospitals for emergency medical care. 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 under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are speeding
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
- Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects
These and other negligent actions leave countless innocent parties with broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and other injuries that demand both immediate and long-term medical care.
