Car Accident in Missouri
Auto accidents in Missouri are often preventable. However, we see more than 50,000 people hospitalized each year with injuries caused by driver errors. We see thousands of people suffer life-altering injuries in crashes caused by impaired drivers. Thousands more are harmed due to drivers who are texting or talking on their phones. Even more are harmed by motorists who speed, run red lights, and fail to yield the right of way to others sharing the road.
The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle collisions impact more than just the mental and physical health and well-being of injured parties. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well. Some of the most common damages that injured parties are able to recover include compensation for:
- Immediate medical expenses
- Long-term care costs
- Lost wages
- Vehicle repairs
- Pain and suffering
