Car Accidents in Missouri

Callaway, MO – Rita Brown Injured in Two-Vehicle Wreck on US-54 near County Rd 220Every day, we see motor vehicle accidents take place in Missouri that result in debilitating injuries. Unfortunately, there are several factors that can contribute to accidents taking place.

Drivers who are impaired often because crashes that have serious consequences for victims. Impairment can refer to both alcohol and drugs, and both can seriously impair your ability to drive. Even over-the-counter medications can cause drowsiness and affect your reaction time.

Speeding is also a major factor in many car accidents. It takes longer to stop or slow down when you’re going faster, so you’re more likely to be involved in a crash if you’re speeding. And if you are involved in a crash while speeding, it’s more likely to be serious or even fatal.

Distractions are another major cause of vehicle collisions that we see here in Missouri. Drivers who are daydreaming, texting, talking to their passengers, or even changing their radios take their attention off the road ahead. This can result in vehicles drifting into other lanes, crashing into the rear ends of other vehicles in congested areas, and other severe collisions.
