Car Accidents in Missouri
Vehicle accidents occur every single day in the state of Missouri. Many of which end in serious injuries. Following a motor vehicle accident, those who are harmed are able to pursue legal action against the responsible driver.
In Missouri, drivers are held accountable for their own negligent actions that cause car accidents. If you are involved in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be able to recover damages from the at-fault driver. Missouri follows a pure comparative negligence standard when awarding damages in car accident cases.
This means that the amount of compensation that you are able to recover will be reduced by an amount equal to the percentage of fault that you share for the accident. For example, if you are found to be 20 percent at fault for the accident, you will only be able to recover 80 percent of your damages from the other driver.
