Car Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and broken bones in Missouri. In fact, car crashes are responsible for more than half of all traumatic injuries in the state. Day after day, we see innocent people harmed as a result of motor vehicle accidents that are caused by negligence. We see countless people injured by drivers who are speeding, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, distracted, or engaging in other senseless actions while behind the wheel. When innocent people are harmed as a result of negligence, they are able to pursue legal action.
In Missouri, the comparative negligence rule is followed in car accident cases. This means that if you are found to be even partially at fault for an accident, you may still be able to recover damages from the other driver or drivers involved. However, your recovery will be reduced by your own percentage of fault.
For this reason, it is imperative that you seek the assistance of a skilled and knowledgeable car accident lawyer in Morehouse as soon as possible. Your lawyer will be able to build a case on your behalf to prove that the defendant is at fault and should be held accountable for all of your damages.
