Car Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents take place daily in Missouri. Many of them leave victims with significant injuries that require extensive medical care. Regrettably, the majority of people suffer injuries in accidents due to driver errors.
One of the most common causes of auto collisions in the state of Missouri is speeding. When a driver is going too fast, they may not be able to stop in time if something unexpected happens. This can lead to serious accidents.
Distractions are another major factor in vehicle crashes across our state. When drivers are distracted, they may not see what’s happening on the road ahead of them. This can lead to them crashing into other cars or objects.
Impairment is another leading factor in traffic accidents that we see here in Missouri. When drivers are impaired by drugs or alcohol, they may not be able to drive safely. This can lead to them causing serious accidents.
Reckless actions are also a major cause of car accidents in our state. When drivers make careless decisions, such as driving too fast or running red lights, they put themselves and others at risk of being involved in an accident.
