Common Causes of Jefferson City Motor Vehicle Accidents

Driver negligence is the most common actor in motor vehicle accidents. Examples of the types of negligence that often cause serious motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Distracted driver
  • Following too closely
  • Drunk driving
  • Intoxication with prescription, over-the-counter (OTC), or recreational drugs
  • Fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Excessive speed for the conditions
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Failure to use caution in construction zones
  • Improper passing of school buses
  • Failure to use turn signals
  • Failure to yield right of way

A driver is not always at fault for an auto accident. Other causes of Jefferson City motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Defective vehicle
  • Defective roadway

In cases where a negligent driver caused the accident, crashworthiness defects in vehicle and roadways can cause injuries to be worse.

Hit and Run Accidents

Hit and run accident victims often believe that there is no legal recourse, but you may still be able to recover substantial compensation for your injuries. Our Jefferson City accident attorneys will thoroughly investigate your accident, and we may be able to identify and locate the driver who hurt you, even if police have given up. If the driver cannot be found, you may still be able to recover from your own insurance company if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage.

If a defective vehicle or roadway contributed to your accident or injuries, we will pursue the appropriate avenues of compensation so that you can recover all of the money you are entitled to.

A motor vehicle accident changes your life forever. Fair compensation can lift the financial burden from you and your family now and in the years to come.
