Roadway Accident Injures St. Louis Man

Quite often, people will travel along various Missouri roadways, come to a stop sign, stop and then go without taking notice of any oncoming traffic. Many of them travel their usual roads almost every day, and so their driving behavior becomes more like a habit than a task that they spend time thinking about.

According to a recent article on the Leader Publications website, one St. Louis man was injured because another driver failed to check for oncoming traffic after stopping at a stop sign. The accident occurred on a Sunday afternoon at an intersection in the Arnold area. Missouri State Police responded to the call when it came in.

The victim in this case was a twenty-eight-year-old man, and the 2011 Hyundai Sonata he had been driving was totaled. The man sustained moderate injuries and was taken to a local hospital.

This accident is an excellent example of a case that needs to be discussed with St. Louis personal injury attorneys. The victim did not make any bad driving decisions, and the article is not completely clear about why the accident occurred, other than the other driver proceeded through the stop sign without checking for oncoming traffic.

If you or someone you love is in a similar situation, please know that you have options. Contact your St. Louis personal injury attorneys to learn what those options are so you know what you should do.
