Car Accidents in Missouri

Adair Township, MO – Man & Child Hospitalized After Crash on MO-5 near Petunia RdThere are many instances where people are left with severe injuries as a result of car crashes here in the state of Missouri. The unfortunate truth is that crashes are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries to victims across their state each year. Many people involved in accidents are left with severely broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and other injuries that require medical care.

There are many cases where people are left with debilitating injuries following crashes caused by negligent and careless drivers. Unfortunately, negligence comes in many forms.

Speeding is one of the most common causes of car crashes. Speeding increases the stopping distance of a car, as well as the chance of losing control of the car. Distracted driving is another leading cause of car crashes. Distracted driving includes anything that takes the driver’s attention away from the road, such as using a cell phone to talk or text, eating, or talking to passengers. Drunk driving is also a major cause of car crashes due to the fact that alcohol consumption decreases a driver’s ability to focus and react quickly. It also impairs coordination and judgment.
