Car Accidents in Missouri

Cave Springs, MO – Two Teens Injured in Auto Wreck on Farm Rd 81Car accidents are unfortunately quite common in the state of Missouri. In fact, according to the Missouri Department of Transportation, there were over 60,000 car accidents in the state in 2020 alone. That averages out to about 165 car accidents per day!

There are many reasons why we see so many accidents here in our state. First, Missouri is a very populous state, with over 6 million residents. More people on the road means more opportunities for accidents to happen.

Secondly, Missouri has a lot of rural roads, which can be more dangerous to drive on than urban roads. Rural roads are often more poorly maintained and have fewer safety features like guardrails and streetlights. They can also be more difficult to navigate, with twists and turns that can catch drivers off guard.

Lastly, winter weather can also contribute to increased car accidents in Missouri. Ice and snow make driving conditions much more treacherous, and even short trips can become dangerous.

All of these factors combine to create a perfect storm for car accidents. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is important that you act quickly to protect your legal rights.
