Car Accidents in Missouri
Each year, traffic collisions in the state of Missouri leave thousands of people with significant injuries. Suffering a serious spinal cord injury or even a traumatic brain injury can impact every aspect of your life. Regrettably, many accidents are entirely preventable.
There are many different factors that can lead to car accidents. Some of the most common causes include speeding, not obeying traffic laws, and drinking and driving. Other causes can include slippery roads, poor visibility, distractions from cell phone use, and faulty equipment.
Regardless of the cause of your accident, if another person’s negligence has caused you harm, you must reach out to a Missouri car accident lawyer right away. There may be legal options available to help you move forward.
When it comes to pursuing legal action, Missouri follows pure comparative negligence for car accidents, which means that the at-fault driver’s liability is based solely on the amount of negligence he or she displayed. In order to maximize the amount of compensation you are able to recover, it is crucial that you prove that the defendant is at fault for the accident.
Unfortunately, insurance companies will do whatever they can to shift the blame of the accident unto you. For this reason, it is important that you have a skilled legal team on your side who can prove that the defendant is at fault for the crash.
