Car Accidents in Missouri
In an instant, your life can change forever. This is particularly true if you have been involved in an accident. In Missouri, tens of thousands of people are hospitalized every year with serious injuries due to vehicle collisions. There are many cases where innocent people are hurt due to crashes that are entirely preventable. Acts of negligence continue to be a leading factor in the majority of accidents in our state. In fact, nearly four out of every five crashes involve a driver who engaged in some form of negligence while behind the wheel.
In Missouri, as in other states, speeding drivers are a common cause of car accidents. Speeding drivers often lose control of their vehicles and crash into other cars or objects. Impaired driving is another common cause of accidents in Missouri. Drivers who are intoxicated or impaired by drugs are more likely to cause accidents than sober drivers. Changing lanes recklessly is also a common cause of car accidents. Drivers who fail to signal when they change lanes or who make sudden lane changes without checking their mirrors can cause serious accidents.
