Car Accidents in Missouri
Every month, thousands of people are hospitalized as a result of crashes that occur in the state of Missouri. In many cases, injured parties are forced to undergo extensive medical treatment. We see countless people left with severe injuries that affect their lives. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, you may be able to pursue legal action against the responsible party.
In Missouri, the driver who is at fault in an accident is responsible for the damages caused. If you are involved in a car accident, it is important to know that Missouri is an at-fault state. This means that the driver who is responsible for the accident will be required to pay for the damages.
There are several factors that will be considered when determining who is at fault in an accident. These include:
- The type of accident: rear-end collisions, head-on collisions, sideswipes, and hit and runs are all examples of accidents where fault can be determined.
- The speed of the vehicles: if one driver was speeding, they may be held more liable than the other driver.
- The weather conditions: if the weather was a factor in the accident, this may be taken into consideration when determining fault.
- The road conditions: if the road was icy or wet, this may have contributed to the accident and should be considered when determining fault.
- The visibility: if one driver had a clear view of the road and the other driver did not, this may be taken into consideration when determining fault.
It is important to note that fault can be determined even if one of the drivers was not charged for anything criminally following the accident, such as speeding or impairment. If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to speak with an experienced Warren car accident lawyer to discuss your case.
