Halltown, MO (October 17, 2022) – A traffic collision reported in Lawrence County left a 21-year-old man injured. On October 14, troopers with the Missouri State Highway Patrol were notified that a crash occurred on Route O.

According to local news sources, at around 5:15 p.m., a 2002 Jeep Wrangler was traveling on Route O when the vehicle turned into the path of the 2015 Hyundai Tucson. As a result, the two vehicles collided just half of a mile south of Halltown, Missouri. The two vehicles were extensively damaged due to the crash.

The driver of the Hyundai, 21-year-old Christian Lawrence of Everton, Missouri, suffered injuries in the crash. Lawrence was transported to Cox South Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, for the treatment of injuries.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the collision at this time.

We hope Christian Lawrence is able to recover quickly following this accident.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Halltown, MO – One Injured in Auto Accident on Route OEvery day, innocent people are hurt as a result of vehicle collisions in the state of Missouri. We see many people left with significant injuries that negatively affect their lives. Not only do victims often suffer from physical and emotional pain and suffering, but they often face towering financial burdens as well. After a motor vehicle accident, injured parties are able to file lawsuits against the drivers who are responsible to seek compensation for the damages they face.

In Missouri, the courts use a pure comparative fault system when determining how to apportion damages in a personal injury case. This means that the court will look at the actions of each party involved and assign a percentage of fault to each. The damages awarded will then be reduced by that percentage.

For example, if you are involved in a car accident where you are determined to be 40% at fault, and the other driver is determined to be 60% at fault, any damages you are awarded would be reduced by 40%. So, if you were awarded $10,000 in damages, you would only receive $6,000.

The comparative fault system can be very complex, and it is important to have a Halltown car accident lawyer on your side who can help ensure that you are not unfairly blamed for an accident.
