Car Accidents in Missouri

Weableau, MO – Two-Vehicle Wreck on US-54 Leaves Two InjuredVehicle wrecks occur daily in the state of Missouri. Many of these accidents result in severe injuries for those involved. We see many people left with injuries like whiplash, broken bones, concussions, and even internal organ damage.

There are several reasons why these accidents continue to take place day after day. Unfortunately, over 80% of accidents that take place in the state of Missouri are a result of driver errors.

Drivers who choose to drink and drive put themselves and others at risk for serious injury or death. Drivers who are drunk often drift into other liens and strike vehicles. Additionally, they have problems stopping in time to avoid collisions and congested areas and stop signs.

Speeding is another common cause of vehicle collisions here in the state of Missouri. When drivers exceed the posted speed limit or drive too fast for the conditions, they put themselves and others in danger. Slower speeds give drivers more time to react to hazards and can help prevent serious crashes.

Distracted driving is any activity that takes a driver’s attention away from the task of safe driving. This can include talking on the phone, texting, eating, and drinking. Distracted driving is dangerous because it increases the chance of an accident occurring.
