Car Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle accidents take place in Missouri at an alarming rate. Unfortunately, we see tens of thousands of people left the severe injuries due to the negligence of others. People who suffer injuries as a result of accidents often have to go through extensive medical care.
Regrettably, the majority of accidents that take place in our state are completely preventable. However, we continue to see innocent people suffer due to the negligent acts of others. Some of the leading causes of crashes in Missouri include:
- Switching lanes without looking
