Car Accidents in Missouri

Hayti Heights, MO – Two-Vehicle Wreck on US-412 Ends in InjuriesEvery year, devastating car accidents take place in Missouri that leave innocent people with severe injuries. There are many cases where accidents are entirely preventable. We see so many people hurt as a result of drivers who engage in acts of negligence while behind the wheel. Leading causes of crashes that we see here in the state of Missouri include:

  • Distracted driving: With so many things competing for our attention these days, it’s no wonder that distracted driving is becoming more and more of a problem. Whether it’s talking on the phone, texting, or engaging in other actions that take their attention off the road, even a moment of inattention can put you and others at risk.
  • Speeding: Whether people are rushing to get somewhere or simply trying to show off, speeding increases the chances of an accident occurring. It also makes any potential accidents much more severe.
  • Driving under the influence: Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is never a good idea. Not only is it illegal, but it significantly impairs your ability to drive safely. If you’re going to drink or use drugs, make sure you have a designated driver who can take you home safely.
  • Weather conditions: Missouri weather can be unpredictable, and adverse conditions can quickly make roads dangerous. If you don’t feel comfortable driving in certain weather conditions, it’s always best to stay home or find another way to get where you’re going.
