Car Accidents in Missouri
A crash can change your life in an instant. Unfortunately, we see many people left with severe injuries as a result of traffic accidents that occur in the state of Missouri every year. The vast majority of accidents that take place in our state are completely preventable. Some of the most common causes of crashes include:
- Distracted driving: Drivers who are distracted by their GPS devices, cell phones, or other passenger conversations are more likely to cause an accident.
- Fatigued driving: Fatigue can significantly impair a driver’s ability to operate a vehicle safely. Drivers who are tired or have been driving for long periods of time are more likely to cause an accident.
- Impaired driving: Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is extremely dangerous. Driving while impaired can impact a person’s ability to make sound decisions while operating the vehicle.
- Speeding: Drivers who are speeding are more likely to lose control of their vehicle and cause an accident. The chances of drivers losing control of their vehicles while speeding is greatly increased around curved roadways and in construction zones.
- Weather conditions: Bad weather can make it difficult for drivers to see and navigate the road safely. Snow, rain, ice, and fog can all contribute to accidents.
