Car Accidents in Missouri

Every year, thousands of people lose their lives in pedestrian crashes across the United States. Not only do pedestrians lose their lives at an alarming rate in motor vehicle accidents, but many other people involved in these accidents are left with severe injuries that require extensive medical care. In Missouri, some of the leading causes of pedestrian-involved crashes include:

  • Motorists who fail to yield the right of way
  • Motorists who are distracted by phones and other objects
  • Motorists who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Motorists who are speeding

When victims are hurt in traffic-related accidents resulting from the negligence of other motorists, it is important that they seek legal guidance as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation that can help cover the costs of care and other expenses moving forward.
