Bicycle Accidents in Missouri

St Louis, MO – Teen Injured in Bicycle Crash on Highway 141 near Gravois Bluffs BlvdAuto collisions in the state of Missouri take place for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they are caused by human error, such as driving while distracted or driving under the influence. Other times they are caused by mechanical issues, such as a blown tire or faulty brakes. Sometimes, they are caused by environmental factors, such as poor weather conditions or debris on the road. No matter what the cause, car accidents can have devastating consequences.

Generally speaking, the driver who is deemed to be at fault in an accident is the one who has violated a traffic law or made some other error that led to the collision. For example, if one driver runs a red light and hits another car, that driver would likely be considered at fault. Or if one driver rear-ends another car, it is usually assumed that the first driver was following too closely and not paying attention.

There are also instances where both drivers may share fault for an accident. This is typically the case in accidents where both drivers were speeding or not paying attention. In these cases, each driver may be found partially at fault and may be required to pay damages accordingly.

It is important to know that Missouri is an at-fault state when it comes to car accidents. This means that whoever is found to be at fault in an accident will be responsible for any damages that result from the collision. If you are hurt in an accident, it is crucial that you reach out to a skilled St. Louis bicycle accident attorney who can help you determine who is ultimately responsible for your damages.
