Car Accidents in Missouri

St Louis, MO - Michael Jaycox & Dolores Jaycox Injured in Auto Accident on I-55 near I-270Crashes that result in serious injuries occur every day in the state of Missouri. Unfortunately, we see tens of thousands of people harmed annually as a result of collisions in our state. There are many cases where people are seriously hurt in crashes that are a result of other drivers engaging in negligent actions while operating their vehicles.

Distracted driving is a major problem on our roads here in the state of Missouri. With so many drivers using cell phones and other electronic devices while behind the wheel, it’s no wonder that distracted driving is one of the leading causes of traffic collisions not just here in Missouri but across the entire United States.

Failure to yield is another common factor in traffic collisions across the state. When making a turn or merging onto a highway, it’s important to yield to oncoming traffic and make sure that everyone has a chance to pass by before proceeding safely. Failing to do so can result in a serious traffic wreck.

Running red lights is also a major contributing factor to traffic crashes in Missouri. Running a red light can lead to a T-bone collision or even worse, often resulting in serious injuries for those involved.
