Traffic Accidents Up in Springfield – Fatal Crashes Down in early 2013

At Preston Law, we help people who have been injured in serious auto accidents.  We are Springfield Missouri personal injury lawyers.  The City of Springfield, Missouri Public Works Department recently released the traffic accident statistics for the January 1 through March 31, 2013 time period. The good news was that there were only two fatalities in Springfield due to traffic accidents in that timeframe.  But, there were still 1,658 crashes in Springfield.  That was 49 more crashes than during that same time period in 2012.  There were 422 personal injury crashes which was an increase of 26 more injury crashes than 2012.  The City of Springfield, Missouri recommends using seat belts to reduce injury and death in these auto accidents.  Children should also be secured in properly adjusted child restraint seats.  As Springfield Missouri personal injury attorneys, we agree with the City of Springfield on these preventive measures.  If you or a family member have been injured in an auto accident anywhere in Missouri, you can contact our injury lawyers for a free consultation at Preston Law.
