Intoxicated driver causes crash in Missouri

Other times, however, they come in the form of reckless or intoxicated drivers. When Missouri drivers or passengers are involved in a car accident caused by another driver, they have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit. Certain facts, such an intoxicated driver, can increase the likelihood of success of the lawsuit because it is helpful evidence of fault.

Kansas City a hot spot for car accidents involving deer

Drivers always need to be aware of other vehicles on the road. This time of year, motorists throughout the nation have another thing to worry about when driving. Deer are more prone to jump into the road causing motor vehicle accidents. While these incidents occur in many Missouri communities, the odds of such an incident occurring are highest in Kansas City. The Missouri Highway Patrol reports that between 2007 and 2011, a total of 1,262 crashes involving deer occurred.  This number of crashes is significantly higher than the number of crashes in the next highest community, Lee's Summit. During that same period a total of 265 such crashes occurred there.
