While the holidays are a time of year for decking the halls with boughs of holly and being jolly, there are other considerations to take into account as well. A major factor people should take into account before leaving on their holiday road trip this year is to consider the sheer number of people who will be traveling. Drunk driving accidents are also on the rise this time of year due to negligent drivers. Leaving earlier and driving defensively could help Missouri drivers avoid accidents on the road this season.
Car accidents are typically the most deadly as well as the most common type of personal injury accident. When car accidents result in fatality due to the action of negligent drivers, mourning families and friends are left behind to pick up the pieces. The circumstances are intensified if the loss of a loved one may have been avoided, and when the tragic details are unknown, leaving several questions unanswered. Head-on collisions in Missouri are unfortunately all-too-common, and often result in fatality.
