car accidents in missouri
Every year vehicle collisions take place here in Missouri resulting in devastating injuries to those involved. We see countless people suffering from traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and damage to internal organs as a result of accidents. Unfortunately, there are several types of accidents that take place here in Missouri. One of the most common and devastating types of collisions is rear-end collisions.
There are many reasons why rear-end crashes occur in our state. One of the most common causes of rear-end crashes is vehicles following the cars in front too closely. If a vehicle stops suddenly, it is important that any following vehicle can stop to avoid a collision. Drivers who tailgating are often unable to do so.
Other causes of rear-end crashes include distracted driving, such as texting or talking on the phone. Weather conditions, such as rain or snow, are also common factors in these types of accidents. Finally, we see many rear-end collisions occur as a result of drivers driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
If you have been injured in a rear-end accident, it is important to remain calm at the scene of the accident and contact the police. You will also want to exchange insurance information with the other driver and take photos of the accident scene if you are able. It is also in your best interest to immediately seek legal advice from an auto accident attorney in Centerville Township.
