Car Accidents in Missouri
Every day, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of innocent people across our state. 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.
Nearly 80% of crashes in our state can be attributed to some form of negligence. The leading cause of collisions we see each year include drivers who:
- Operate their vehicles while impaired
- Run red lights
- Fail to yield the right of way
- Use phones and engage in distracting behaviors
These and other acts of negligence often lead to life-altering crashes that force victims out of work for several weeks. When victims are injured in accidents, those harmed are able to pursue legal actions to obtain compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward. Working with a knowledgeable and aggressive car accident attorney in the Clinton area after your accident can greatly improve your chances of recovering.
