Car Accidents in Missouri
Being hurt in a motor vehicle accident can change your life forever. Regrettably, we see tens of thousands of people in Missouri hospitalized annually as a result of traffic collisions. Although any type of collision has the potential to cause severe injuries to those involved, rear-end accidents often are some of the worst types of collisions that we see on our roadways.
Rear-end crashes take place for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, a driver rear-ends another vehicle because they were following too closely and did not have time to stop. Another common cause of rear-end accidents is when drivers are distracted and not paying attention to the road, causing them to rear-end the vehicle in front of them. Rear-end crashes can also take place if a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
In some cases, weather conditions can contribute to rear-end crashes. If it is raining or snowing, for example, it may be difficult for a driver to see the vehicle in front of them, and they may rear-end the other car as a result.
