Car Accidents in Missouri
Every year, crashes occur in Missouri that leave victims with devastating injuries. We see countless people hospitalized with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even severe compound fractures. Many of these accidents are caused by drivers who engage in acts of negligence. Unfortunately, there are many accidents when drivers cross over the centerlines and strike other vehicles.
There are a number of factors that contribute to these accidents. First, many drivers simply do not pay attention to their surroundings and fail to see oncoming traffic in the opposite lane. Second, many roads are not designed to accommodate two-way traffic, making it easy for drivers to cross into oncoming lanes. Finally, driver distractions and aggressive driving habits also play a role in these accidents.
These accidents often occur at high speeds and can be very devastating. If you or someone you know has been involved in such an accident, it is important to seek legal help as soon as possible.
