Car Accidents in Missouri
Every day, car accidents take place in Missouri that result in significant injuries. Quite often, innocent people are harmed in these accidents as a result of driver negligence. When drivers fail to operate their vehicles in a responsible manner, it can have devastating consequences. Some of the leading causes of crashes that we see here in Missouri include:
- Distractions: We see a significant number of people harmed as a result of crashes caused by distracted drivers. Even taking your attention off the road for a few seconds can lead to a devastating accident. Unfortunately, we continue to see innocent people hurt daily as a result of drivers who are texting, talking on the phone, eating, or reaching for things in the backseat.
- Failing to yield: Whether you’re trying to make a left turn or merge onto the highway, you need to yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic. Failure to do so can cause a severe accident that results in significant injuries.
- Drunk driving: Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is incredibly dangerous and illegal in all 50 states. Unfortunately, we continue to see innocent people harmed as a result of drivers who are drunk or impaired.
