Car Accident in Missouri
Each year, more than 55,000 people are hurt in crashes throughout the state of Missouri. Here in Wilson Township, we see many victims hospitalized with injuries that impact their health and wellbeing. Broken arms, burn injuries, and evening internal organ damages are incredibly painful injuries. They are also very costly to treat.
In many cases, victims are harmed in crashes due to the negligence of others. Some of the most common factors contributing to auto accidents in our state include:
- Driving while impaired
- Driving while distracted
- Failing to yield the right of way to others
People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work. Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after.
When victims are harmed in accidents, due to the negligence of others, they often have legal options available to help them move forward. When victims are injured in accidents as a result of other drivers, it is important that they seek the legal guidance of a St Louis car accident attorney as soon as possible.
