Car Accidents in Missouri

Monett, MO – William Kuschel Hurt in Auto Wreck on US-60It is estimated that there are over 2.5 million car accidents in the United States each year. Missouri is no exception, with tens of thousands of car accidents occurring each year. While some of these accidents are simply unavoidable, many are caused by the negligence or recklessness of drivers.

The most common cause of car accidents in Missouri is distracted driving. Drivers who are texting or talking while using their phones or engaging in other actions that take their focus off the road can cause serious accidents. Distracted driving is especially dangerous because it often leads to drivers not being able to react in time to avoid an accident.

As a result, drivers who are impaired often have trouble staying in their lane, have slower reaction times, and make poor decisions. These factors can all lead to serious accidents.
