Missouri car accident leaves man injured in Boone County

When someone is heading down the road following the law, they may assume everyone around them is abiding by the rules of the road just as they are. However, the behavior or actions of other drivers may put alert and law-abiding drivers at risk at any time. Recently in Missouri, a car accident occurred as one vehicle drove right into the path of another not far from Paris.

A Chevrolet truck was heading north and it crossed over another roadway. A car being driven by a 28-year-old man was heading east as the truck came through. The truck crashed into the car. It is unclear what kind of signage or lights may have been at the crossroad in question.

The 28-year-old driver who was hit was wearing a seatbelt. He still needed to be transported to a medical facility for treatment of injuries. The 18-year-old driver of the truck that caused the crash was not wearing a seatbelt, but it is unclear if he suffered any kind of injury at all. It is also unclear if there will be any charges filed in connection to this accident.

The injured man may have to miss work in order to recover or may incur medical bills for treatment of his injuries. He may have just cause to file a civil suit in relation to the car accident. In Missouri, a civil suit can yield monetary damages that can help victims of car accidents recoup the costs associated with the accident, including lost wages and medical bills.
