Car Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle accidents take place in our state every single day. These crashes are often caused by drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. Some of the leading causes of crashes that we see include drivers who are traveling too fast for road conditions, drivers who fail to yield to others, and drivers who enter roadways while distracted by their cell phones and other objects.
Thousands of people are left with significant injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents in Missouri every year. Some of the most common injuries that victims suffer from include:
- neck and soft tissue injuries
- spinal cord injuries
- cuts, scrapes, and abrasions

If you have suffered a serious injury as a result of an accident, you will most likely have to go through emergency surgery. Countless victims have to go through long-term treatment as well, such as therapy and rehabilitation.
