Car Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle accidents can have an overwhelming impact on the lives of victims. When people suffer from severe injuries, they often have to be rushed from the scene and admitted into area hospitals. We see a significant number of people suffer from spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones following their accidents. Unfortunately, more than 65,000 people suffer injuries as a result of accidents in our state every year.
There are many cases where people are harmed in accidents due to the negligence of other drivers. Some of the most common causes of crashes we see include:
- Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are speeding
- Drivers who run red lights and pass stop signs
- Drivers who are distracted by their cell phones and other objects
When people engage in these and other acts of negligence, they placed the lice of other people sharing the road at risk.
