Auto Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents in Missouri often result in tens of thousands of individuals being hospitalized with injuries. While some collisions are unavoidable, many people suffer life-altering injuries due to the negligent or reckless behavior of others. The severity of injuries can vary depending on factors such as speeding, the type of vehicles involved, and the force of the impact.
Accidents frequently lead to broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries for thousands of victims. These incidents force innocent individuals into hospitals, where they undergo extensive medical treatment. Hospitalization and extended periods of time off work, combined with therapy and rehabilitation, are all too common for victims who have been harmed. Unfortunately, riding a bicycle at the time of an accident can significantly impact the severity of injuries that victims suffer from.
Bicyclists are far more vulnerable to suffering serious and life-threatening injuries due to the fact that they often lack protection. Being struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle also increases the likelihood of being ejected and suffering serious injuries due to the impact of the secondary collision. When victims are hurt in car crashes by other drivers, seeking the guidance of a skilled bicycle accident attorney in Missouri becomes crucial.
