Car Accidents in Missouri
Every day, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of innocent people across our state. In countless instances, victims require emergency medical attention due to their injuries. Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error.

In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are speeding
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
- Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects
