How does negligence apply to motor vehicle accident claims?

Sometimes car accidents happen during your daily commute. Other times they happen on your way to the grocery store or coming home from a party. Ultimately, though, most of the time no one anticipates being involved in a motor vehicle accident on any given day. Unfortunately, Missouri is no stranger to car crashes. When a person is involved in an auto accident that leaves them with injuries, they may want to pursue a legal claim against the responsible party.

Report says Missouri is the 48th worst state for teen driving

As parents of teenagers may already know, teens generally do not have the same maturity that adults do. This immaturity combined with a sense that nothing bad could ever happen to them may cause teens to driver recklessly, leading to a motor vehicle accident. Even responsible teens can cause car crashes due to mere inexperience. In fact, one recent report states that Missouri is a particularly bad state when it comes to teen driving.

Commonplace injuries after car accidents

Most days, driving or being a passenger in a motor vehicle is fairly uneventful. It's simply a way to get from point A to point B. However, all of that can change in an instant when you or a loved one is injured in a motor vehicle accident. A collision can cause a multitude of car accident injuries and there are some that are more commonplace than others. If you have been involved in a car accident, it's good to recognize the potential injury outcomes that can result after such a traumatic event.

Left-turn collision sends 8 people to hospital

Left turns on heavily traveled city streets spawn a disproportionate share of urban traffic accidents. Deciphering the causes of these accidents can also prove difficult for even experienced accident investigators. A left turn collision in Kansas City, Kansas on April 4 sent eight people to the hospital with a variety of injuries.

Driver fleeing police collides with another vehicle

High-speed police pursuits are often controversial, not because the police vehicle is a hazard to other drivers but because the driver attempting to escape becomes a significant threat to other drivers. The degree of risk was tragically demonstrated in a recent motor vehicle accident when a car fleeing from Kansas City, Kansas police crossed into Missouri during a lengthy high-speed chase and collided with a sedan occupied by a husband and wife going out for dinner.
