Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, crashes in our state leave tens of thousands of people injured. Many people are left with severe injuries as a result of crashes caused by negligence.
Some of the leading causes of car accidents in Missouri include speeding, impaired driving, and distractions. Drivers who are speeding can cause devastating consequences in a motor vehicle collision, while drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol can put other drivers and themselves at risk.
Distracted driving can be caused by anything from talking on a cellphone to operating a vehicle while fatigued. Failing to yield the right-of-way to another vehicle can also lead to a car accident.
Engaging in any type of negligent or careless action can immediately place the lives of others sharing the road at risk. Regrettably, accidents occur daily under circumstances that are entirely preventable.
