Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, tens of thousands of people in our state are negatively impacted by motor vehicle accidents. In countless instances, victims require emergency medical attention due to their injuries. 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. There are many cases where injured victims are harmed in accidents caused by drivers who speed, are impaired, or otherwise engage in negligent actions while operating their vehicles.
In many instances, victims are left with severe injuries that drastically limit their abilities and require immediate and long-term care. When people suffer spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even traumatic brain injuries, they often require long-term care as well. These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. Many victims require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine.
In some instances, victims may have legal options available to help them move forward. Following your accident, you can benefit greatly by reaching out to a St Louis car accident lawyer as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation to help cover the financial burdens you face.
