Missouri uses the principle of pure comparative negligence when determining liability in a Missouri accident. A person injured in an accident can recover damages for her injuries even if she was 99 percent at fault for the accident. In this situation the damages awarded to the victim are reduced by her responsibility in the accident. For example, if the injured party is 50 percent responsible for the accident, her award will be reduced by 50 percent.
