NTSB stats show across the board rise in fatal accident numbers

Drivers in Missouri should keep abreast of the statistical dangers when out on the road as this can provide a guideline to being safer. The number of deaths on the road is a constant worry for people who need to get back and forth in various ways. Recent statistics released by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) shows just how risky it can be for everyone who takes the road in Missouri and across the nation.

For Missourians who need to have a surgical procedure, there is an unavoidable fear and concern as to what the future holds. Even the most mundane and routine procedures carry with them a certain amount of risk. People will trust their medical professionals to do their job up to the best of their abilities and ensure their safety. Unfortunately, there are times when doctors make medical mistakes and it leads to injuries or even fatalities. When a family has suffered the loss of a loved one due to a doctor mistake or some other error, it is imperative that they are aware of the steps they need to take to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Fatal accident in Missouri claims school cross-country coach

The Missouri roads can be a dangerous place. This is not something that is frequently thought about until an accident does happen, but it is the truth.

This is particularly troublesome when it is a school bus that is hit.

Fatal accident statistics on bicycles show dramatic increase

Missourians who choose to use a bicycle to get around rather than other means might think they are saving money by not driving, are getting exercise they would otherwise not get, and are taking steps to safeguard the environment. While this is all true, there are inherent dangers with riding a bicycle on the road in Saint Peters and throughout the state. In addition, a bicyclist who is in a crash with a car is inherently vulnerable to serious injuries and fatalities. Understanding the statistics for bicycle accidents is useful before and after an accident.

Compared to the same time frame one year ago, there were 250 fewer people killed in 2016.

When you enter a doctor's office, you have certain assumptions and expectations regarding the doctor's competency.

Wrongful death lawsuits: What they are and when to file

Accidents will happen, or so the saying goes. Unfortunately, accidents can often be fatal, whether related to a car wreck, medical mistake, tragic fall or some sort of criminal activity.
