Car Accidents in Missouri
A traffic accident can change your life in an instant. Unfortunately, many people who are involved in accidents are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Victims who suffer spinal cord injuries, trauma to the head, and other severe injuries can expect to have to spend several weeks or even months off work to recover.
There are far too many instances where people are never able to return to work again. Dealing with the physical and emotional consequences of crashes is a process only made worse by the financial burdens that victims and their families are often forced to endure.
The unfortunate truth is that many accidents are caused by drivers who are negligent. One of the most common causes of car accidents is impairment. When a driver is impaired by alcohol or drugs, they are more likely to make poor decisions and engage in risky behaviors. This can include things like failing to yield at intersections, passing traffic signals, and driving erratically. Impaired drivers are also more likely to cause accidents by falling asleep at the wheel or losing control of their vehicle.
Another common cause of car accidents is failing to yield at intersections. Many drivers fail to yield and end up causing collisions. This is especially common when one driver is turning left at an intersection while another is going straight.
Finally, running red lights or stop signs is another leading cause of car accidents. Every day, countless drivers choose to ignore traffic signals and put other motorists in danger. This reckless behavior often leads to T-bone accidents, which can be catastrophic for victims.
