More than 55,000 motor vehicle accidents resulting in injuries are reported in the state of Missouri each year. In Montier Township, we see many crashes take place as a result of driver negligence. When drivers are under the influence of alcohol, distracted, or engaging in other reckless actions while operating their vehicles, they place the lives of every single person sharing the road with them at risk.
People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families.
