Categorized as Auto Accidents

Liberty, MO (November 17, 2021) – On November 15, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was requested at the scene of a motor vehicle accident in Clay County that left one person injured, according to local news sources.

At around 6:15 p.m., authorities received the notification that a two-vehicle collision occurred on Interstate 35. Preliminary investigations found that a collision between a 2002 Ford and 2018 Jeep occurred on Interstate 35 on the northbound ramp to US Highway 69.

The driver of the Ford, 25-year-old Anthony Guzman of Excelsior Springs, Missouri, sustained injuries in the accident. He was transported by ambulance to Liberty Hospital for further care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Anthony Guzman and his family at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Reports provided by the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that the state of Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of people being involved in fatal collisions. Not only are victims at a high risk of losing their lives in accidents, but the frequency of injuries is high as well. In fact, more than 55,000 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents across our state each year.

The chances of suffering catastrophic injuries are greatly increased in accidents involving speeding vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians, and semi-trucks. However, it is important to understand that various factors come into play when it comes to determining the severity of an injury a victim is likely to sustain.

There are thousands of people who sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries from their accidents. When victims are injured in 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. A responsive and effective car accident attorney in Liberty can help to explain your legal rights as a victim of an accident.
