Is it possible to avoid auto accidents by spotting drunk drivers?

It would be wonderful if everyone had the ability to spot danger in plenty of time to avoid tragedy. Unfortunately, this is usually an unattainable goal. Still, when it comes to Missouri auto accidents caused by drugged or drunken driving, it is possible to spot danger ahead of time in some cases.

Dealing with serious car accident damages? Consider legal help

Last week on the blog we discussed the exorbitant expenses that can be associated with treating spinal cord injuries. For those who suffer these injuries on account of a negligent driver, financial relief may be available through a personal injury lawsuit. However, these cases aren't always as straightforward as they may seem. Instead, evidentiary issues may threaten to derail the successful imposition of liability as well as a finding that one's losses are as significant as he or she believes.

Auto accidents and the costs of spinal cord injuries

Car accident injuries can fall anywhere on a spectrum of severity for Missourians. Many residents are lucky that they suffer nothing more than some bumps and bruises after a crash, while others are tragically left with serious injuries that completely reshape their lives. For those who fall into the latter category, the damages with which they have to cope can be completely overwhelming. Not only do they have to find a way to deal with the physical pain and suffering inflicted upon them, but they also have to find a way to cover medical expenses and rehabilitation costs that are necessary to spur their recovery efforts. These losses can be quite significant.

Head-on collision leaves two dead

The roadways provide travel routes for a wide range of vehicles, and these roads experience unfortunate collisions each year. For some of these tragic crashes, the accident is caused by a wrong-way driver or a distracted driver that has crossed into the opposite lane of traffic.

A reminder about Missouri's basic speed limit law

Winter is coming to the Kansas City area. With that comes the reality that drivers in Kansas City and in both the Kansas and Missouri suburbs are going to have to deal with wintry driving conditions. Even on fair weather days, there are relatively few hours of daylight. Moreover, snow, ice, fog, wind and other types of weather can make the roads slick and the driving particularly treacherous.

Unusually cold temps led to rush hour mess

The Kansas City area experienced an unusually cold Halloween. In fact, it marked the second coldest October 31 over the city's 130 plus years of existence. Along with the cold weather came icy conditions on the city's roads, which in turn seems to have contributed to a large number of auto accidents.

Whiplash can have a long-term impact

Victims of rear-end auto accidents frequently experience "whiplash," although the condition can develop because of other traumatic injuries. Whiplash is an injury to the neck that happens because the neck gets lashed rapidly back and forth, much like the cracking of a whip, as a result of a sudden and forceful blow.

Woman dies in failure to yield accident

A woman from southwestern Missouri died recently in an accident at an intersection, according to reports. Police investigating the accident said that the woman, who was a passenger in one of the vehicles involved, flew out of her vehicle following the accident. While the condition of the driver of her vehicle was not listed, police did note that he was not wearing a seatbelt. Rescuers took the woman to a hospital in a nearby urban area, but the woman died about 90 minutes after the accident.

One killed, one severely injured in area moped accident

According to recent reports, a man on his moped suffered what police described as life-threatening injuries after an accident on a local bridge. Sadly, the woman riding as a passenger on the moped died shortly after being transported from the scene of the auto accident to a nearby hospital.
