Auto Accidents in Missouri
A serious car crash can take you by complete surprise and leave you with serious injuries. A total of 989 people were killed in vehicle collisions across Missouri in 2020, an increase from 881 reported fatalities the previous year. Millions are injured annually in auto accidents in the United States, and car wrecks continue to be a pervasive issue across the country. Human error is a factor in nearly 90% of reported collisions each year.
Pursuing deserved compensation can be difficult after being injured in a car accident, and crash victims who negotiate with the insurance company may find themselves in a difficult situation. Despite what they may say, the insurance company wants to make you accept the lowest settlement possible, and that means minimizing your compensation following a car crash. Medical bills, missed work, and emotional suffering all add up quickly, and crash victims are entitled to recover compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim. If you have been injured in a serious crash, you need to contact a qualified Missouri car accident lawyer immediately.
