Car Accidents in Missouri

St Louis, MO – Car Crash with Injuries blocks I-170 near St Charles Rock RdThousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment.

Many victims require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine. Regrettably, many victims never recover from their injuries and are left permanently disabled and out of work. Some of the most common factors contributing to auto accidents in our state include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while impaired
  • Driving while distracted
  • Failing to yield the right of way to others
