What To Do After a Car Accident
If you have been injured in a car accident, protect your rights by taking the proper steps:
- Document and photograph everything. Keep copies of important records and reports. Take photos of your injuries and the scene of the accident. Write down the names and phone numbers of eyewitnesses and all other individuals involved.
- Protect your case by guarding what you say about it. Don't discuss the case extensively with friends and coworkers, and definitely do not admit or accept blame at any time. The less you say about your case, the better your chances of an equitable outcome.
- Speak with a knowledgeable car accident lawyer. Receive individual counsel and help from a seasoned professional as soon as possible. It is important that you receive the advice you need to make informed decisions and to move forward if possible.

What Is the Most Common Car Accident?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rear-end collisions are the most common type of car accident. These crashes account for about 29% of car accidents each year, and they are almost always caused by the rear driver.
Factors that cause or contribute to rear-end accidents include distracted driving, tailgating, and speeding. Although rear-end crashes are the most common, head-on collisions and rollovers are the most dangerous.
Nevertheless, any accident can cause serious injuries and justify legal action.
Where Do Most Accidents Happen?
Most fatal car accidents happen within 25 miles of your home. Other popular sites for car accidents include:
- Parking lots and garages
- In traffic
Some of the most dangerous intersections in Springfield, specifically, include:
- Glenstone Avenue and Sunshine Street
- Kansas Expressway and Sunshine Street
- Glenstone Avenue and Battlefield Road
- Campbell Avenue and Walnut Lawn Street
- National Avenue and Battlefield Road
- National Avenue and Sunshine Street
- Kansas Expressway and Battlefield Road
- West Bypass and Chestnut Expressway
- Kansas Expressway and Grand Street
- National Avenue and Chestnut Expressway
While you should always exercise caution when you are behind the wheel, use extra care when passing through these intersections and others and when heading home from work.
No matter where your accident takes place, you may be entitled to compensation if it is caused by someone else’s negligence.
How Long Do I Have To File a Car Accident Claim?
In Missouri, the statute of limitations for car accident claims is 5 years. Per the Missouri Revisor of Statutes and Chapter 516 of the state’s Civil Procedure and Limitations, plaintiffs have 5 years to file suit for any “injury to person or rights or of another.”
If you miss this deadline, you may lose your right to legal action entirely. The defendant will file a motion to dismiss your case, and because the deadline has passed, the court will grant the dismissal. While certain factors may “pause” the clock, you should seek legal help as soon as you feel you may have a case. The sooner you put together your legal team, the stronger your claim will be.
