Head-on motor vehicle accidents can cause serious injury

The roads in Missouri are generally busy, but that is nothing compared to when the holidays are approaching. Combined with potentially rough weather, that can be a dangerous and outright deadly combination if there are motor vehicle accidents. People will tend to rush just before or during the holidays. With that will be risky behaviors and accidents that are often unavoidable. For those who are in a crash -- especially a head-on crash -- there can be serious injuries and death.

Road worker hurt in hit-and-run motor vehicle accident

There is a natural risk for St. Louis road workers. This is especially true when they are working on the highway overnight. While it might be beneficial for drivers not to have to worry about road work snagging their commute during the daytime rush hours, working during the late night and early morning hours places workers at risk of injury from inattentive, reckless and drunk drivers. The combination of factors that accrue in these circumstances can lead to an accident. What will make it worse is if it is a hit-and-run. Those who have been hurt in motor vehicle accidents when working on the road should think about the future and consider a legal filing for compensation if appropriate.
