Car Accidents in Missouri
Vehicle wrecks in Missouri are a leading cause of injuries and deaths each year. Unfortunately, we see many people hospitalized following crashes that are caused by drivers who engage in acts of negligence. There are many causes of car crashes, but driver impairment, drivers who are talking on their phones, and drivers who pass stop signs are some of the most common.
Driver impairment can be caused by many things, including drugs, alcohol, fatigue, and distractions. Drivers who are impaired are more likely to get into accidents because they cannot react as quickly or make good decisions.
Drivers who are talking on their phones are also a major cause of car crashes. Studies have shown that drivers who are talking on the phone are four times more likely to get into an accident than those who are not. This is because they are not paying attention to the road and their hands are off the wheel.
Finally, drivers who travel too fast or pass stop signs often cause accidents. When drivers speed, they have less time to react to things that happen on the road. And when they pass stop signs, they may not see other cars or pedestrians that could be in the way.
