Wrongful death: Missouri man convicted after DWI crash

A 28-year-old Missouri man has recently been sentenced to 20 years in prison for his involvement in a car crash that killed a 10-year-old girl. He was convicted on two charges of 2nd degree assault and one charge of 2nd degree murder. Alcohol appears to have been a factor in the tragic accident. The man reportedly admitted to causing the fatal crash, and his admission of guilt, along with the conviction on criminal charges, may help the girl's family if they wish to pursue a wrongful death suit.

Tractor-trailer drivers must use the utmost care and caution as they drive on roadways in our state and across the country.

Car accident in Missouri seriously injures 3, including driver

When a single-car accident occurs, it is not always clear what may have caused or contributed to it. Investigators must examine the evidence thoroughly in order to determine how the crash happened. Such a car accident occurred recently in Missouri, resulting in serious injuries to all three of the vehicle's occupants. If the authorities determine that a negligent or reckless act may have contributed to the car accident, the injured parties may wish to seek recourse under our state's personal injury laws.

Chain reaction car accident in Columbia injures 3

Multi-car accidents have the potential to cause injury to large numbers of people. That is why it is so important for investigators to thoroughly examine any possible cause to determine who or what may be at fault. Recently, a chain reaction car accident occurred in Columbia that involved four cars and sent three people to the hospital. It is possible that the circumstances surrounding the crash may provide enough evidence to successfully litigate a personal injury claim, should the injured victims decide to pursue one.
