Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, tens of thousands of people are hospitalized as a result of traffic accidents that occur in the state of Missouri. There are many cases where one vehicle crashes into the rear end of a second vehicle. There are several reasons why rear-end collisions take place so often in our state.
One of the most common causes of rear-end collisions in Missouri is following too closely. If the car in front of you suddenly stops and you do not have time to react, you will likely rear-end that vehicle. Another common cause of rear-end accidents is distracted driving. If you are not paying attention to the road and traffic around you, you may not see the car in front of you stopping or slowing down. This can lead to a serious rear-end collision.
Other common causes of rear-end accidents include weather conditions, such as ice or snow on the road, and mechanical issues with your own vehicle, such as brake failure. No matter what the cause, rear-end collisions can be very serious and often result in injuries or even death.
