Car Accidents in Missouri
A motor vehicle accident can have an overwhelming and immediate impact on your life. Many people are left with severe physical and emotional pain and suffering. Countless victims deal with towering financial burdens related to medical costs and more. Unfortunately, there are many cases where people are harmed in accidents due to the negligence of others.
In Missouri, the most common contributing factor to vehicle collision is driver error. Driver errors can include actions like distracted driving, speeding, and driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol.
Other common contributing factors to car accidents in Missouri include weather conditions and road conditions. If the roads are icy or wet, it can be very difficult for drivers to maintain control of their vehicles. And if visibility is low due to fog or rain, that can also lead to accidents.
If you’ve been injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident, personal injury laws in the state of Missouri allow you to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person who is.
