Car Accidents in Missouri
An automobile accident can change your life entirely. Trying to deal with physical and emotional pain and suffering can be quite exhausting. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of people across our state are hospitalized annually with serious injuries following crashes.
When innocent people are harmed as a result of motor vehicle accidents, they may be able to file a personal injury case against the responsible party. In Missouri, the legal doctrine of pure comparative negligence is followed in car accident cases. This means that each party involved in an accident is responsible for the damages they cause, and their liability is determined by their percentage of fault.
For example, if one driver is found to be 50% at fault for an accident, and the other driver is found to be 50% at fault, each will be liable for half of the damages caused. However, if one driver is found to be 90% at fault and the other driver is only 10% at fault, the first driver will be responsible for 9 times more damages than the second driver.
The doctrine of pure comparative negligence can be complex. For this reason, it is important that you seek representation from a skilled legal team right away.
