Truck Accidents in Missouri
Vehicle collisions occur daily in the state of Missouri. There are many of them that are caused by drivers who engage in acts of negligence. One of the most common factors in motor vehicle accidents across our state is speeding.
Speeding increases the risk of crashing by making it more difficult to control the vehicle. Additionally, speeding also increases the severity of the collision if an accident does occur. Another common factor in vehicle collisions are distractions. Distractions like cell phones can also take a driver’s attention away from the task of driving, increasing their chances of being involved in an accident.
When drivers engage in acts of negligence while operating their vehicles, they leave others at risk of suffering severe injuries. We see many people left with spinal cord injuries as a result of collisions. These injuries can result in paralysis, which may be permanent in nature. Suffering from a spinal cord injury can completely disrupt your life.
Neck and back injuries are also common in car accidents. These can range from minor to severe, depending on the force of the impact. Head injuries are also possible in car accidents and can range from concussions to more serious brain damage.
Broken bones are another common injury that can occur in car accidents. These can be caused by the impact of the accident or by being thrown from the vehicle. If you’ve been hurt as a result of an automobile accident, it is crucial that you reach out to a car accident lawyer in Fayetteville. Having a knowledgeable legal team by your side can help you pursue legal action against the driver who caused you harm.
