Car Accidents in Missouri
Accidents take place every day as a result of drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. Unfortunately, collisions are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries in our state each year. There are many cases where people are hurt as a result of crashes that are caused by drivers who fail to yield to others.
According to statistics, more than 15 percent of auto collisions across the nation are caused by drivers who fail to yield. These vehicle accidents are the second leading cause of automobile crash fatalities in the country.
There are a number of reasons why drivers may fail to yield, but the most common reason is simply distracted driving. When drivers are not paying attention to the road, they may not see another car coming and accidentally pull out in front of them. Distracted driving can include anything from talking on the phone to fiddling with the radio.
Of course, not all car accidents caused by drivers who fail to yield are fatal. However, they can still be very serious, causing injuries that may require extensive medical treatment and time off work.
