Car Accidents in Missouri
Every day, we see innocent people victimized as a result of motor vehicle accidents caused by negligence. Failing to yield the right of way is one of the most common factors in motor vehicle crashes across the state. It is important that drivers are well familiar with the rules of the road before entering. Unfortunately, we see many people fail to yield to other drivers when backing up, pulling through intersections, or even switching lanes.
Drivers who have the right of way should not have to be extremely cautious when it comes to traveling along a roadway in a normal manner. Drivers expect that others in the area will provide them with the duty of care. When careless drivers breach this duty, it can result in a motor vehicle accident that completely changes a victim’s life.
When innocent people suffer injuries due to motor vehicle accidents, they may be able to pursue a personal injury case against the person at fault. A personal injury claim will enable you to get the money you need to cover your medical expenses and other costs and losses resulting from your crash.
