Car Accidents in Missouri

Merriam Woods, MO - Ryan Freyermuth Injured in Auto Accident on MO FEach year, traffic collisions are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries in the state of Missouri. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are a result of drivers who engage in acts of negligence. Some of the most common causes of crashes that take place here in Missouri include:

  • Distracted driving: Given the number of distractions that we see, it is no wonder that distracted driving is one of the leading causes of crashes that take place in our state. We see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who are texting, talking on the phone, and engaging in other actions that take their attention off the road.
  • Speeding: Going over the speed limit is not only against the law, but it’s also extremely dangerous. When you are speeding, you have less time to react to things that happen on the road and are more likely to lose control of your vehicle.
  • Drunk driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is never a good idea and can lead to tragic consequences. Thousands of accidents take place as a result of drivers who are drunk or high while behind the wheel.
  • Weather conditions: Bad weather can make driving conditions extremely dangerous. We see many accidents take place as a result of slushy and icy road conditions, heavy snow, and rain.

If you’ve been harmed in a traffic-related incident that was a result of another driver’s negligence, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. A Merriam Woods car accident lawyer can help you file a lawsuit after your crashing injustice.
