Distracted teens at high risk for having motor vehicle accidents

Just about everyone in Missouri will have a story about seeing a person behind the wheel of an automobile who is looking down and clearly using a mobile device instead of looking straight ahead and watching what they should be watching: the road. The problem is getting worse, not better, and government agencies and researchers are seeking ways to understand the problem and prevent it. Teenagers are especially prone to distracted driving, and this can cause motor vehicle accidents that result in injuries and fatalities. Keeping track of studies is important to dealing with this problem.

Pedestrian hit by SUV suffers personal injury and dies

There is no doubt that pedestrians in Saint Louis and throughout Missouri will be safer when they are crossing the street, if they stay in crosswalks and adhere to traffic signals telling them when to go. Unfortunately, that is not a guarantee that people will be shielded from personal injury and death after being hit by a motor vehicle. Getting hit by a car can cause extensive damage and those who have been hurt and the families who have lost a loved one in an auto-pedestrian crash should think about a legal filing for compensation.
