Car Accidents in Missouri

St Louis, MO – Injury Accident Reported on I-65 near Missouri RiverThousands 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 are harmed in crashes due to the negligence of others. 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

People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only do are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families. 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.

When victims are harmed in accidents as a result of other motorists, our state allows them to file legal claims against wrongdoers to recover compensation for the financial burdens they endure.
