Car Accidents in Missouri

In 2011, 786 people were killed in traffic collisions statewide. An additional 51,061 people were injured. The Missouri State highway Patrol reports that only 6.99% of Missouri traffic accidents were caused by weather conditions (such as snow, sleet, freezing temperatures, mist, fog or rain.) In fact, 72.4% of car crashes occurred on dry pavement. Accidents happen, but many can be avoided. Although some car crashes are the result of unforeseeable circumstances, many are caused by careless driving. If you've suffered injury or loss because of a negligent driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit or claim.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, drunk driving is responsible for a significant portion of the "traffic crash problem" in Missouri. 26.82% of all traffic accidents that resulted in fatalities involved alcohol in 2011. Statewide, 4.38% of all car crashes were attributed to drunk driving and 6.58% of rural car accidents involved DUI. In the same year, 3,630 people were injured because of drinking and driving. That's why our firm is committed to helping victims of DUI accidents collect the money they need and deserve. We believe the drunk drivers should be held responsible for their actions. If you've suffered in an alcohol-related crash, call our office today and take the first step toward the money you need.

Raytown is a suburb of Kansas City and, according to the 2010 population census, is home to approximately 29,526 people. The Raytown area was developed in the 19th and 20th centuries by American pioneers as they moved out west. In 1826, the land was added to the state of Missouri through a treaty at the cost of $800.
