Car Accidents in Missouri

Joplin, MO – Dominic McKinley Injured in Go Kart Crash on Route PIn Missouri, car accidents are governed by the law of negligence. This means that the person who caused the accident is responsible for any damages that result from it. There are many factors that can contribute to causing an accident, but ultimately it is up to the court to decide who is at fault. In some cases, both parties may be found at fault, and in others, only one party may be held responsible.

There are many different types of car accidents, and each one can have its own unique set of circumstances. However, there are some common scenarios in which one party may be found at fault. For example, if a driver rear-ends another car, they will typically be found at fault because they were not paying attention to the road ahead of them. Similarly, if a driver runs a red light or stop sign, they will likely be held responsible for any resulting accident.

Unfortunately, there are many other causes of car accidents, and it is not always easy to determine who is at fault. In some cases, both parties may be found at fault for causing an accident. For example, if one driver runs a red light and another driver is speeding and rear-ends the first car, they may both be held responsible for the accident. In these cases, each party will typically be responsible for their own damages, and any damages that are not covered by insurance will have to be paid out of pocket.
