Car Accidents in Missouri

A car accident can disrupt your life forever. Unfortunately, we see many people in our state being seriously injured every day after car crashes. In some cases, the vehicle may cross the middle of the road and hit other vehicles head-on.

There are many reasons for a vehicle to cross the centerline of the road and hit other vehicles. One of the most common reasons is driver distraction. With more and more motorists using cell phones and other electronic devices while behind the wheel, it’s no surprise that this has become a leading cause of accidents.

Other causes of crossover accidents include intoxication (alcohol or drugs), falling asleep at the wheel, road rage, and weather conditions. In some cases, mechanical problems with the vehicle itself may cause it to swerve into oncoming traffic.

Whatever the cause, these types of crashes are usually very serious because they usually involve a frontal collision. If you are involved in one of these accidents, it is important to seek immediate medical attention, and then contact an experienced Monett car accident attorney to discuss your legal options.
