Auto Accidents in Missouri

Callaway, MO - Kayla Baker & Robert Murphy Transported to University Hospital Following Crash on I-70 near Cedar Creek DrEach year, thousands of people are hospitalized with severe and life-changing injuries following motor vehicle accidents. The majority of these crashes are entirely preventable. However, we continue to see innocent people suffer as a result of the actions of other drivers. Some of the most common causes of crashes we see include

Speeding: Although every road has a posted speed limit, we continue to see drivers travel well above them. Drivers who are speeding are more likely to lose control of their vehicles and cause serious accidents. Unfortunately, when speeding vehicles are involved in crashes, the severity of injuries is often dramatically increased.

Recklessness: Drivers are required to operate their vehicles in a manner that is safe for others. Unfortunately, we continue to see thousands of vehicle accidents take place each year as a result of drivers who are reckless. When drivers do not yield to other motorists, switch lanes in a reckless manner, or engage in other reckless actions, they place the lives of innocent drivers at risk.
