Car Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents are a leading cause of death and injuries in the state of Missouri. Unfortunately, more than 55,000 people are hospitalized annually following crashes in our state. When innocent people are harmed as a result of vehicle collisions, they often paste overwhelming physical and emotional impacts. Many victims also faced tens of thousands of dollars in medical costs, repairs to their vehicles, and lost wages.
When innocent people are harmed as a result of drivers who are negligent, they can take legal action against them. Filing a personal injury lawsuit can help you seek financial compensation for the costs and losses you face.
In Missouri, the law of pure comparative negligence applies to car accident cases. This means that each party is responsible for the damages they cause, and their liability is adjusted to reflect the degree of fault that they have for the accident. For example, if one driver is found to be 80% at fault for a traffic collision, they would be liable for 80% of the damages suffered by the other driver.
This law can have a significant impact on car accident cases in Missouri. It is important to remember that even if you are partially at fault for an accident, you may still be able to recover damages from the other driver.
