Personal injury: Missouri crash results in fatality

Drivers in Missouri and across the country often go to great lengths to ensure their personal safety as well as the safety of others they may encounter. Unfortunately, even a driver who always avoids distractions while driving and obeys all traffic laws can fall victim to the negligent actions of others. In fact, a man's recent death as a result of a car accident could lead to a personal injury lawsuit.

The incident that led to the man's death happened at approximately 4 p.m. on a day in mid-December. According to reports, the 38-year-old victim was headed south on a Missouri road. Unfortunately, an oncoming pickup truck reportedly crossed the centerline, causing a collision.

Police say that the southbound driver died at the scene. The other driver suffered only minor injuries. Both were reportedly wearing safety belts at the time of the collision. It is unclear what charges -- if any -- are expected to be filed as a result of the crash.

Unfortunately, the unexpected death of a family member is always difficult. However, a preventable loss that happens just before the holidays can be especially devastating for surviving family members. Often, families are left struggling financially as a result of lost wages and funeral expenses. When a loss is the result of another's negligence, many families in Missouri choose to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party or parties believed to have been responsible. If successfully presented, families could receive a monetary award that will help ensure they can meet their financial responsibilities while they attempt to cope with their grief.
