What happens in a whiplash injury?

Most people in Missouri have heard references to whiplash but they may not fully understand this injury. That may be in part due to the fact that sometimes whiplash is treated almost as a joke or not taken seriously. However, this type of injury can actually result in a chronic condition for some people according to The Mayo Clinic. It is important for people who have been involved in a motor vehicle accident to know the signs of whiplash.

Missouri teens face high risks when driving

Residents in Missouri who have teenage children preparing to get their drivers' permits and eventually licenses are quite often nervous about their kids taking on this responsibility.

Calls for federal regulation of autonomous vehicles

People who live in Missouri may have varied opinions on the continuing evolution of self-driving cars.

Five people seriously injured by drunk driver

Missouri residents should be able to feel safe when they get in their cars and trust that in today's society, the fact that drinking and driving is unsafe is well known and accepted by all. Sadly that is not the case as there remain too many people who refuse to let go of their keys when they drink or who refuse to stop drinking when they know they will be driving. Whatever the reason for these choices, the end result is the same - innocent people are injured and killed for no good reason.

How many people die in car crashes in Missouri?

Tesla owners: Autopilot does not mean self-driving

Recently in California, the owner of a Tesla Model S crashed into a fire engine on the highway. Authorities said the man had been using the vehicle’s Autopilot driver assistance system at the time of the crash.
